    first time making a corsage so i'm looking for feedback/suggestions. should i add some bling or will it be too much? i still need to make 3 more (FMIL, grandmother, godmother), and might make bouts for the dads while i'm at it. unless you girls think it looks crappy? these are only regular silks you get at ac moore, not real touch, so there is a degree of fakeness ... but it was pretty easy to do.

                Had you not told me, I would have never known they were fake. Great job. Don't add a thing!

                  thanks! the bridesmaids are wearing david's bridal "apple red" but the dresses are a crinkle chiffon and the apple red color looks darker in that material. for instance, i bought "red" chair sashes and they were all wrong, but the "burgundy" ones were a perfect match. so the colors are deep reds with orange/mango/peach colors.
