Tell me ladies what do you think of these flowers?

i ordered these flowers off of ebay to see how they look in person. i think their pretty cool, and will probably use it to make my flower girl a pompador... but was wondering, do you think they would pass for a bouquet too? i plan on ordering more colors to use as pew decorations and stuff. but wanted your opnions?

 they were described as being laytex real touch flowers (which the real touch flowers from micheals look really real, but are about 4-7 bucks for a single flower) these are a lighter foam, not quite as real looking but so far all the responces have been postivie towards them. i would LOVE to have a bouquet that wouldnt wilt and could be displayed forever... but i worry about whether it will look cheesy in photographs or if i will miss having a "real" bouquet... any advice?

I have struggled with whether to do artificial flowers due to price and the fact that I can keep them forever. I have a friend that use to own a flower shop and she just did a girls wedding at work in artificial flowers and although they were beautiful I decided to go with real flowers. It's just my preference really. I would say compare the two side by side and then make your decision.

 Yea, it's definitely a tough decision! They look great, but maybe take kimandbyrons advice-compare some side by side and see what you like best :)

 Yeah maybe I will do that. I've just had difficulty getting a hold of a florist who will talk to me past two or three emails. >_< it's annoying!

They look nice! I'd say dress up and take some photos w/ them as well to see how they'd look.

Oh those look really nice. But did you know you can buy  real flowers from sams club or costco? or heres a direct from the grower site

http://www.freshroses.com/weddingflowers.html. 

I thought you were going to make a paper flower bouquet or a ribbon one.

 I thought I was going to make a pearl bouquet but it didn't happen. It was too complicated to make.

Were the instructions complicated or you didn't like the way it looked?

Those are gorgeous!! I struggled with the same thing, I thought it somehow meant less if I didn't have real flowers and my experience with 'fake' before wasn't all that good, I associated that with 'cheap'. But the cost savings for me was HUGE, on average flowers just for the bride, BMs and FG were about 1K, never mind decor!!! I got all of that for $460 just by using natural touch flowers. They were beautiful and I still have them to look at every day :)

And my photographer didn't know until haltway through the day that my bouquet wasn't real! So go for whatever look you like best - don't worry about missing out on not having real if that is your only hangup.

 Zeuster, I really didn't find any instructions. I did a few trial runs and didn't like any. Then I discovered that it was because I was using the wrong stuff. A friend and I conspired and figured how I could make it the right way but by the time I got all of the supplies (not counting hours) it would be cheaper to buy one off etsy, but I wasn't sure as much as I love it if I would miss the flowers. 

Sammy, where'd you get your flowers? Do you have pics?
