I got some silk flowers from Hobby Lobby, and some from Michael’s. There were some flowers I liked better/thought looked more realistic at one store than at the other. Not sure what you have where you’re from, but JoAnn’s Fabrics also carried a good selection of silk flowers…

I would recommend getting as many as you think you’re going to need at once (if you get them at a physical store), because I found that while one store carried a specific flower I was using, after a certain period they rotated it out and brought new ones in.

@cmoore793:  i am in the same boat you are. i just started looking around. i didnt see any silk flowers at my local jo ann, but I have checked a few websites. Bloombridal looks the best to me but they are pretty expensive IMO :/ afloral.com looks good too! good luck and let meknow if you find something good!

For B&M stores, the quality that I’ve seen goes: Hobby Lobby (best), then Michael’s, then JoAnn’s.

I’ve heard good things about afloral.com, but haven’t actually ordered from them.

This may or may not be any use to you, but my sister used Real Touch flowers for her wedding. They’re a bit pricier, but they look really nice. I still keep my bridesmaid’s bouquet in a vase years later.

I love saveoncrafts.com. I ordered my callas there for my centerpieces and they looked amazing.

@cmoore793:  just an update for you. I ironically went to Michaels with FI today to look at some fake flowers. Ended up loving them and bought over 50 flowers! they were having a 70% off sale and I got everything (so far) for $70. Here are a couple photos for you! I was very impressed

@cmoore793:  I have tons of White silk hydrangeas for sale! Probably 20-30 large blooms! They were gorgeous at our wedding and hardly anyone could tell they were fake! Message me if you are interested in them 🙂

I haven’t purchased any flowers yet, but I’ve been looking around and really like the ones (and prices!) that are on save-on-crafts! I’ll probably end up buying them from there and/or Hobby Lobby.
