@peachbaby4008:  it depends on the silk.  I went with the highest quality silks available and my bouquet was a little over $200.  The lower the grade, the lower the price.

Generally yes, unless like @soon2beMrsGP said, you get very high quality silks.

Im doing my research now: which is more cost effective in the long run and I was actually surprised by the silk flower costs; but then again I am looking at silk calla lilies!

“in the long run” implies that you would actually use them more than once. what would you do with all of them after the wedding? you could donate them to a hospital, but that doesn’t help you get your money’s worth.

i would check out the flowers they have at your supermarket (the real ones). they are cheaper than what you will get from a florist, but for one day you don’t need the ones that last days and days. Plus it could be fun for someone in your family, if they are artistically inclined, to be incharge of the flower arrangements 🙂
