Hi ladies, I'm looking for some help, the FI and I can't seem to agree on which style of bouquet looks better. I find this hilarious, mostly because I didn't think he'd care. I'm a bit concerned though, maybe he's right, I thought I'd ask for an unbiased opinion.
Here are the two bouquets I created:

This is the feather bouquet, I love the curled feather look and I think it goes well with our funky dia de los muertos theme. While I think the elegance of a floral bouquet is nice.... It's just not "me" or "us". My fi prefers this bouquet, he thought it was perfect as is (although I felt it still needed work).

I love, love, LOVE the brooch bouquet look, yesterday I was browsing Michael's (I'm a regular there these days) and noticed they were having a 40% off sale on all jewelry items. I noticed one brooch I liked and it quickly snowballed out of control... Right out of control, ugh. This is the end result, which in my mind is not complete, I think it needs more. I tried to incorporate a few of the feather flowers I'd made, just to keep the fi happy, lol.
On another note, I think my fi got a little jealous of all the feather work I've been doing. We're both avid fly fishermen/women (that's how we met), so he pulled out his vice last night and made his own boutonniere, here's a pic of his "first prototype".

So ladies, please, help us settle this disagreement! Which bouquet do you like better, and go easy on me, I'm not usually the creative type, the brooch boquet is really only about 75% done, but I didn't want to put any more effort into it if I'm heading down the wrong path. HELP!
P.S. Don't tell me what you think I want to hear, I like honesty! In the end I'll probably just do what I want anyway, but I still want to know what others think, lol.
