Hey ladies. So as most of you know, I was asked by a friend of mine to make her wedding bouquet. She is having a completely flower free wedding and has asked me to make a bouquet for her out of fabric. I originally posted a thread with the first flowers I made and some of you ladies had suggested I add more layers and maybe mix up the colors. Her colors are baby pink and cream and for the bouquet, I plan on having about 20 flowers or so gathered together. I made three different designs and would love to hear which one you like most. I was originally planning on doing maybe 10 pink and 10 cream but as you see in the 3rd option, I tried to do a mix of the two. Thanks so much!

They look very flat to me. If you add a larger center you could make them look more like ranunculus. I think you still need more layers though. Each flower should probably have 16-20 petals. If you want to make it rose lihe then you need to make it more of a cone.

The more variety you have the more texture and visual interest your going to have in your bouquet. I say use all three flower types! 🙂

@michiru4ever: I think they might look full enough if they are placed close to one another.
I agree that whether she goes for more petals per flower, or more flowers per bouquet, it’s going to take a lot of work to get the fullness she’ll need.
