I am using artificial flowers too. I have some real touch ones and some silk ones. The orchids I’m using are all real touch, and the roses I have feel real as well. I am using silk hydrangeas for the BM bouquets though but they look real πŸ™‚

I don’t have any pics yet because I’m still working on them, but everyone I’ve shown them to loves them so far.

I think it’s great that you were able to find a solution to the allergies and I’m sure they will look amazing!

I will also be using “fake” flowers; due to allergies and also the expense. Our bouquets will be real touch roses and the rest of the flowers will be silks. We are doing pocket squares for the guys, instead of bouts.

@agirlwithdreams7:  I am getting a floramatique real touch bouquet, it’s being made but honestly if I could have got my hands on the flowers without a hassle I would have made it myself since my bouquet consists of one type of flavour.

I’m making fabric flowers to go with my vintage theme, so they aren’t like fake flowers that are trying to look like real flowers, they are like the obviously i’m not a real flower type of fake flower. I hope that makes sense, lol. I’ll add some pics when I’m done my first bouquet!

I just finished all my bouquets tonight!  I would love to share some pictures and some advice.

-For the bridesmaid bouquets, once you’ve made one that looks the way you want it, use it as a base for all the others so that you don’t have any differences in size or shape.

-When you wrap the stems (if you are wrapping them in ribbon), make sure to start the ribbon at the top of the bouquet (near the flowers), wrap it down, and then wrap it back up again.  This will give you a smooth, neat, tight wrap.

I’m using fake primarily for the cost.  I managed to get all my materials for $106, which is awesome!

Here are some pictures:

@noritake22: Those are gorgeous! They look real in some of those pics πŸ™‚

FI and I have been thinking about making paper flowers, which are, like Bostonsmom said, flowers that are supposed to look fake. πŸ™‚
