Well, to be quite honest I’d take out all of the purple flowers.  Few flowers are actually purple in nature, so they just look fake from the get go.  The white ones look great though!  If you want purple, maybe just tie it with a purple ribbon, or throw in some small purple details.  Purple freesia might be a better option than those big ones.

Ah, well I didn’t recognize them but I’m hardly an expert!  😉  Maybe making them smaller would work out?  I really like the white ones though!

I’d fill it out a little more. The less the fake petals can move around and expand the better usually–so they don’t get kinked and bent.

The purple ones do look less realistic than the cream, so maybe add some more cream or another type of flower in a cream shade. Keep greenery out of it.

And of course tie up the stems 🙂

I have to agree with @KristenGettingMarried: the white flowers are gorgeous and look very real, but the purple ones look a bit fake – not that there aren’t purple flowers in nature, but the shade is off. Maybe try a different flower?

I agree that the purple flowers don’t look as real as they could.  I would vary the size of the white to purple.  Also trying adding in a bit of something real, maybe just greenery – ivy or somthing.  Seeing somthing real one will assume all is real.  Good luck!!

It’s the edges of the purple flowers that I don’t like – I don’t know too many real flowers that have that crinkle-cut edge.  I LOVE the cream ones – not so much the purple.

i love the white flowers, they look good – but the purple ones, the purple color seems not particularly natural, but there’s some crinkling texture going on that makes them look fake. are there a couple different types of purple flowers in there? cause i’m talkin’ bout the larger blooms that seem to be purple and white. the smaller hydrangea looking petals – maybe if they were interspersed here and there, might give it a more natural look, and just go with the bulk of the bouquet with the white.
