I'm getting married on a tight budget in July and after seeing the coffee filter roses on Mommymakesroses.com decided to give it a go myself. I got a little bit obsessed with making these roses and have LOADS of them in the house now!

I've made 6 pomanders for the church...

But what I'm really stuck with is the bouquets as I wanted to keep it relatively plain so as not to distract from my fabulous dress (that my mum is making for me!) but thought I needed to break up the colour rather than having just roses. I bought some artificial hydrangeas and some leaves (all fake leaves seem to be quite plastic-y so haven't used too many I hope). So, I need your honest comments/feedback please! Does it need anything more? (I'm planning to wrap the stem with ribbon but otherwise not sure what else to add!)

I totally want to divorce my husband and then remarry him so I can have a real wedding and THOSE flowers!  I think your bouquet is perfect, simple and elegant.

I love my hubby, but the Army doesn't pay enough for my crafty habit!

I don't think it needs anything more, you have done a fantastic job!

Don't mess with it! It's beautiful as is and anything else may be overkill, since simple is what you're going for.

They are beautiful! I need to learn how to make them, they would look awesome in a nice vase on any table without a special occasion!

I used to make wedding flowers all the time and these take my breath away!! I don't think you need to add anything at all! If you wanted to you could add a bit of pear bead loops or ribbon loops but you know when sometimes more is just more? I think this is one of those times.

If you made it, I'll love it!
I'll swap ya for it Smiley

I dont normally like fake flowers, but those are awesome!!!

Seriously in awe of the craft stashes that are on this forum.
I bow down to your awesomeness.

I agree that it is beautiful as is. My vote is to leave it the way it is

However, if you think you need something, you could do some crystal beads, like sweets4ever's bouquet, but not as many. You could also make beaded baby's breath to tuck in here and there. Just some floral wire and white seed beads. This link has directions.

I like it as is. Maybe incorporate the light green into the ribbon wrap? I have seen some fancy ribbon wraps on many bouquets here on craftster...
