I have a question. I don't really know how the groom's bout should be made, but it feels like they should have at least one small flower in it. Maybe its different since you're doing crystles too, but how come your moms' corsages have flowers in it and your grooms is much small?

Well, the boys will wear them on their lapels and the moms will wear them on their blouses, so I made them proportionate to the lapel.  Corsages, to me, should be bigger than bouts, no?  I'm sure it's entirely a personal thing. Cheesy

Other than that, my boys aren't very big on flowers, crystals, or what I believe was referred to as "sissy stuff." Cheesy  I thought plain crystals w/o flowers suited my crew well.

Oh!  I have some leaves left.  I could add a leaf to the back of each one.  What do you think?  Hmm...

I'll have to check with mr.sweets, too!

Ohhh the proportionate thing makes sense. *hits head* Yeah I'm stupid. I'm still sitting over here wondering how I'm going to do mine hah. Tell the men to suck it up and wear what you say Smiley

Cheesy They pretty much would wear whatever I wanted, I think.  I told them ruffled shirts & pink originally and they all said, "Whatever makes you happy, we'll do." Cheesy

I really like how you added the leaves. I usually don't like crystal bouquets but I loved the way yours turned out... esp since they're not all just crystals. I think it would be cute to add a single leaf to the bouts.

I think I'll just pin one on the back & see how it looks!  I'm thinking I'm going to like it.  Besides, I have a small pile o' leaves that need lovin' anyway. Cheesy

Aww, sweets, you have the best guys. Smiley I'm pretty sure my fiance would wear whatever I wanted him to, but I doubt his groomsmen (his brothers) would.
Daicon, I agree. I usually don't like the crystal bouquets either but these are awesome

why is it that whenever i make up my mind and say "ugh! thats tacky! i would never do that" somone on craftster does it and makes it look 1000x better and more elegant than the wedding magazines? I've been swearing for months that crystals in bouquets are tacky, but these are some of the most elegant floral arrangements ive ever seen.

if i keep this up I'll never get anything planned!
