@mrscali13:  Im doing something similar to this with roses, candles and little illuminators they put in the water. I think all flowers would be ok . What’s in your bouquets ?

We aren’t doing submerged flowers, but I think it looks awesome! I was watching some wedding show on TV, and they had baby’s breath submerged in a vase and it looked suuuuper cool! Kinda made me want to do it! But whatever you choose, I think it will look awesome! I’ve also seen it done with calla lilies, but I’m not a fan of calla lilies so I liked the baby’s breath MUCH better. :]

@parada:  The second image is kinda blurry-sorry. I used a fake calla lilly submerged in water beads. The waterbeads allow the flower to “float in place”. The beads are really a great option to keep objects in place. Also, I added a small submergable tea light at the top for an awesome light reflection on the tables.

What did you all find works best, (nice) fake flowers or real?  What’s the drawback for either?

I’m planning on using fake orchids in long cylindrical vases. Not sure which color yet. But I think it’s silly to use real flowers with something submerged, no one will (hopefully) be able to tell they’re fake.
