I hope they are not a “No, No” because we are using fake/real touch flowers. I don’t see the point in spending so much money one something that will just die in a couple days; no offense to those that are using real flowers; they just aren’t for us. I also have severe allergies, so that is another reason we are not using real flowers.

Would you call these fake bridesmaid bouquets no-no’s?  Wink

Trust me.  You will save tons of money going with fakes, and you can make them look exactly like you want, matching your color scheme precisely.  If anybody is rude enough to ask, “Are those flowers real?”  I plan to just say, “No, they’re imaginary.”

If you look around here you’ll find tons of brides who are using fake flowers. Its totally upto you what you want and your budget. You’ll probably encounter some people who just won’t get it because they are expecting real flowers, but most people won’t notice or think twice about it.

If you’re not too sure about the fake ones maybe consider white mums with yellow centers? or even Asters? both will be in season then and should be easy to find.

@Oribel013690: Those are so cute! Did you do those yourself?

I’m doing fakes too! You do what you can.

If you don’t want real flowers that’s totally fine! I don’t think anyone will notice 🙂

I think they’re awesome! I’m not a big “flower person” so I can’t imagine spending $$$$$ on them personally.

I think fake flowers are the new ‘in’ thing to do.  Don’t get me wrong, real flowers are very pretty. But I’m a fake flower girl myself! I’m using entirely fake flowers and I couldn’t be happier with how things will look!!! Plus, I’m pretty allergic to most flowers so I don’t want to sneeze a lot on my big day!

I don’t understand why they are a “no-no”?  What wedding flower nazi said you must use fresh ones?  So what if you use fakes?  If I were a guest, I would applaud you for creating beautiful bouquets and centerpieces without going over your budget.  Seriously, whoever says fake flowers are dumb are not tactful at all.

I think fake flowers are just fine and in some cases GREAT.  I am having paper flower pomanders in some centerpieces and real flowers for my bouquet and bouts.  Whatever works and looks best within your budget.  Maybe you should post a picture of what you have in mind.

My pomanders are made out of silk flowers and my bouquet will be made out of real touch flowers. I’m not using any real flowers; I’m saving a ton of money too plus I get to keep my bouquet for always…

I always think that you can make your own decisions for your wedding. Regardless of whatever people tell you you *need* to do or should *never* do, it’s totally up to you! We are going to use real touch flowers in our submerged centerpieces. They’re actually about the same price as real roses, but I really wanted to be able to assemble them beforehand to save some money. Do what works for you 🙂

I am sorry but why do you think they are a “no-no”?  Plenty of brides including myself are using fake flowers.

Fake vs Real flowers is more of a personal preference.  I love the fake and some ladies on the boards have done such an amazing job with them, alot of times you can’t even tell the difference.
