How good should your wireframes look? (10-minute talk)

In recent projects, some key stakeholders have preferred the look of my wireframes to the look of the visual design guide. The visuals looked great, but what was it about the wireframes? Should I stick to sketchy style in future? Make them deliberately look less finished? But then how do I get honest feedback on my work?

My name is Chris. I am a Designer. I first started playing around with design in high school where I found my first Mac. At first it was just a flyer, a pretty graphic. But then it grew. What really hooked me, what really got under my skin, was when I started designing software. So addictive. So hard to get right.
