@KristMar0814:  My favorite “fake” flowers are the sola wood flowers. I think they are absolutely gorgeous and very real looking IMO. I don’t believe they are they expensive either.

 

 

ETA: Depending on your actual flower budget, Sams Club/Costco/Fiftyflower.com all have bulk flowers that you can order pretty cheaply. You’ll have to arrange them yourself, but they are beautiful good quality flowers. I did this for my wedding. I ordered 125 long stemmed white roses for like 90 bucks. 🙂 Maybe this could also be an option for you if your had your heart set on real flowers. Btw, my white roses stayed beautiful and white for over two weeks after the wedding. I came home from my honeymoon to fresh white flowers! I was shocked!

@KristMar0814:  I’m not sure if it depends on how hardy the flower is… But, I cannot recommend sams for flowers enough! There are A LOT of women on here that will tell you the same thing! 

If you want orchids and are scared of the quality though, you could always go to a florist and pick some up just for you? 🙂

I have sola flowers. The first photo is the sellers photo, but mine looks exactly the same, but larger. You can customize with colors and flowers. The bottom photo (sorry its so dark) is my Flower girl’s bouquet with my shoes.

@KristMar0814:  You could really get nice, real flowers if you’re willing to DIY.  My entire flower budget was $320, I ordered from fiftyflowers and Costco (includes tax and shipping).

@KristMar0814:  Sometimes fake can be almost as much!

If you want to cut cost and still use real maybe you could do a single stems for the bridesmaids or babys breath. For the reception tables do just a few single stems in vases….there are ways to use real flowers and still save!

You could get your flowers from costco or sams club and vases from the dollar tree and it would prob be les than fake going that route…..just a thought!

I used a mix of both real and fake but it still wasn’t as cheap as you might think it would be.

@KristMar0814:  Forgot to add the pics

Maybe single stems for the birdesmaids like this to cut cost….again prob cheaper than DIYing fake and you can get them pretty cheap from Costco or a Sams

single stems in vases (you could get form dollar tree)
