honest opinions on these flowers please?

Tue Jun 16, 2009 1:07 pm

I have stumbled across these on ebay- And I kinda love them but I'm not sure!! Are they tacky?? Or cute in a vintage/shabby chic way? BRUTALLY HONEST OPINIONS PLEASE!! As I'm not a flowerey type of girl, so am clueless.. I wasn't even going to have a bouquet but my mother wants me to!

I think they could go either way - do they go with your theme?

They look nice but fairly small - you might want to get a few and strap them together?

Mmm that's a tough one, they look great from the side but the top is a bit too much going on for my taste

Honesty is good!!! I guess they do go with my theme- which is sort of vintagey/shabby chic.. My colours are ivory, either choc brown or mocha and dusky pink.. My BM will be in brown and my fg in dusky pink. Table decor is dusky pink and lace..

I am also clueless and probably not having a bouquet, so probably the worst person to listen to!

But I like them. I think for a vintage feel they are really cool and distinctive. Even including the apples! I love that vintage/shabby chic look so to me they are fabulous.

My only question - is the glitter going to rub off on your dress???

IMHO - they are not my cup of tea. Perhaps have a look at Dusk or even spotlight if you are wanting to go down the fake flower path?

Thanks everyone, I'm still undecided!!
I'm not a huge fan of the button bouquets though, but thanks for the option!! They are gorgeous but not quite 'me'.

I think I will give it a miss... otherwise I'll constantly be worrying that all the guests think it's tacky!!! :?

I'm not a fan of button bouquets either, so I think they look better then the button ones but I'm not a huge fan. What about just one single rose or a wrist corsage that can look vintage.

I'm not a fan of the bouquet, I don't really like the sparkles or the apples in particular.

Agreed...I'm not a fan of either bouquets, but if the bouquet in the OP goes with your theme and you are happy with it, then go for it :D

Honestly, as I am a fresh flower girl, what about buying a $20 bunch of roses on your wedding morning, trimming the stems and wrapping ribbon around the stems? They may not be florist quality but I think they'd look nicer than the ones you posted. I'm not a fan of any fake flowers though, fresh all the way for me. :)

good idea dan- will definitely keep that in mind.. I'm just thinking of doing fake so I don't have to stress on the day about them, and I can't justify the price that florists charge since I'm not that keen on flowers anyway!! Thanks for the input ladies, will keep looking! Actually have found a few more pics that I need opinions on- will start another post!! :oops:
