So yesterday I worked on my bouquet I showed it to a few people and did not get good reviews. Honestly, tell me what you think.

    I have mixed feelings, it's definitely missing something.

    But the over riding opinion I have is that from ten feet away no one is going to care. And if you're happy go for it.

    I think you need more brooches to help fill it in. Do you like it though? Thats what matters.

    If you love it, that's what matters, but I think it's missing something, like it needs to be filled in more, it doesn't look complete (IMHO). I also think the bead/pearl things look cheap, but that could just be the flash.

    I think it's too monochromatic. The brooch bouquets I've seen have had some more color variation. The feathers or flowers (can't tell which it is) kinda look like hair to me.

    Also the ones I've seen have a lot more brooches. Like almost entirely made of brooches. Will you post your inspo pic?

    I think it needs to be more filled up. But its beautiful..

    I know someone who had a brooch theme bridal shower and made her bouquet out of the brooches she recieved at her shower..

    There's just a lot of white space.

    Eh I'm really not feeling the furry feather thing it has going on. My first thought was that it reminds me if some kind of fluffy dog with pins on it. Besides that I think it could use more brooches and agree with more color variation. Right now it's just kind of blah

    It's a good start but you definitely need more brooches. You can do it 1 of 2 ways.

    1, get a LOT more brooches and overlap them, like below:

    Or 2, get a few more brooches and get a more dimensional filler, the feather don't stand out enough, like this one:

    I'd suggest more brooches and flowers instead of feathers.

    Change the pearls they look like plastic beads to me or a children's necklace . I suggest getting a pearl inspired hair chain instead .. something like this and the combs could double as added broaches

    All I think you need is a few more brooches

    If you need more brooches, you can buy them in bulk off of etsy. I believe the bag only cost $25.00

    It needs more brooches or more definition to the flowers. It looks like feathers instead of flowers to me.

    IMO you need way more, theres too much dead space. I see what you were trying to go for but it looks so blah when you want it to be like wow. Also im not a fan of the strands of pearls hanging from the sides, I think it would look better if those were put on after you fill in the entire thing.

    I can see why you didn't get good reviews. It needs MOAR brooches.

    More brooches, I ordered a 32-pack from Ebay for $24.99 and it was delivered in two days.
