    I wouldn't add a thing -- it's beautiful, and lush-looking as it is! Great job...don't be surprised if you get PM'd with a million "how-to" questions since yours looks like the work of a pro!

      It looks great! I wouldn't add a thing! How are they wearing it? On the wrist or pinned?

        I love the colors. My mom's dress is David's bridal "apple" red too.

          Oh wow! It looks really good. This is the one DIY I do not have the nerve to try. This looks great!

            It looks amazing. I would have never guessed these flowers were from A.C. Moore. Great job!

              not sure! right now i have it made as a pin (i actually have the pin back wired on), but i'm thinking i could add an elastic to the back as well to give them the option?

                I think they look absolutly BEAUTIFUL! Great job.

                If I had to make a suggestion, I would probably say that they are a little on the large side. I would suggest taking out the burgandy stuff at the top and just keep the little bit of burgandy on the side. That will also give a little more attention to the lily and the orange at the bottom which I think is just beautiful.

                But that's just a suggestion, I think it looks amazing just as it is!

                    hmmm, my first thought was "no way, the dark red orchids are the most important part!" ... but i have to admit the corsage IS a bit on the large side, at least if it will be pinned on. they'd probably be ok as is for wrist corsages. i will definitely consider paring it down a bit. thanks for your advice!!
