Bridesmaid bouquet alternative *NEW FLASH*

I’ve made these for my bridesmaids instead of traditional bouquets. i saw similar on a wedding blog and decided to have a go at making some and saving some costs at the same time. This is my first attempt so plenty of room for improvement. what do you think??

I'm worried that whilst i love this now in years to come will i look back and think what was i thinking they are hideous? Should i just stick to normal bouquets or go for something I love now and is a little different?

    I think they are pretty, if you are happy with not having bouquets then that s all that matters.

    Only suggestion fro me is how about like a rosette of organza ribbon behind the roses, if that makes sense, just to fill it out a bit.

    I would say yes if it was a wedding somewhere hot... the sentiment probably a bit lost in this country.

    But they are pretty!

    They're nice but I think they wiill look dated very quickly. How about adding a few more flowers or some feathers or diamantes or something to make them a bit more 'modern'?

    I'm not sure if they'd fit in at a standard traditional british wedding, I think if you are getting married abroad, or they fit in with your particular theme they will look lovely.

    Soulmates! thats the exact picture i have ?

    it was also based on this one and agree that it def needs filling out but I'm not a big fan of using feathers or organza to 'fill' flowers out. maybe if i do it i will just get my florist to make them.

    I actually think they will fit in with your theme really well Beckstar. I really like them and with adding just a flower head or such I think it looks great.
