    There is certainly no “has to”, but I think it’s nice to have real flowers if you are able to.  If you are having fake flowers in other parts of the wedding, I certainly don’t think it’s a problem to have real flowers in other details.

    All of our flowers are going to be artificial and I like that idea in case I decide that I want to keep my bouquet.

    I’m still debating what to do on this one, I really don’t think it matters- do what will make you happy.

    Your bouquet is entirely up to you. No one else has any say in it.

    If I can, I’m going to have artificial flowers to try and save money, but only if I find good ones! Any suggestions?

    I don’t think it matters as long as A) you’re happy with them, B) they don’t break your bank, and C) you’re happy with them.  Smile

    I used fake flowers and when people saw the pictures afterwards, no one knew.  I love that I have my original bouquet on my mantle now.  I don’t think they have to be real.  Plus it was way easier (and cheaper).

    I think it is totally personal taste! I have seen some awesome non-flower bouquets (vintage brooch bouquets…the button/fabric flower ones made by Princess Laserton…etc….all are soooo cool!). I personally will be using real flowers, but I have always ogled the non-flower ones with desire…as they could be a pretty neat keepsake!

    I definitely does not “have to” be real flowers! Like buttons said, it doesn’t even have to be made of flowers at all! Do what makes you happy! 🙂

    I went to a wedding where the bride had fabric & buttons for all the bouquets, I loved them.

    I personally don’t think I’ll be using fake flowers as just a personal preference. You can, however, get “Real Touch” flowers that look/feel like real flowers, but are not.

    I personally would love to have a real bouquet for mine, more so because the flower I’ve chosen has the most beautiful scent in the world to me. However the flower I want the most is about $25 when in season for 3 blooms, so it would be EXTREMELY expensive to do a whole bouquet in. So if I can find it in an artificial flower i intend to use it instead.

    I have a friend who will wed in April this year and she made her own bouquet with those “real touch” flowers. She saved about $50 and it looks real.

    There is so such thing as “has to.”  If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it.

    But I want to let you know there are ways to not pay the expensive price tag.  You can make your own like I did.  I went to a discount flower store and bought the flowers.  For 6 bm bouquets, I spent $80 in flowers and supplies.  If you are not a DIY, you could see if a friend will do your flowers for their gift to you.
