I recently discovered how expensize real flowers are and am looking for alternatives to help stay in budget. I did some browsing on Etsy last night for real looking fake Orange Gerbera Daisy bouquets, bouts and corsages. I am not sure how I feel about going the fake route though. Any ideas or tips? Have any of you ordered you’re flowers on Etsy or any other websites?

Yes!!! Etsy Flowers from the Vase. Beautiful, beautiful. My bouquet ia called “First Love”. They are AMAZING to work with. My bouquet is partially custom. We went back and forth for about twenty emails to right coral color for plumeria.
I would very highly recommend that you look at their site. I looked recently and they have some stunning new bouquets.

OOOO I got my bouquet from familydriedflowers. It is a dried herbal bouquet with purple and blue and green, I don’t know if it will fit your bill if you wanted dasies, but they were wonderful to work with and worth a look.

I was thinking of going with this lady, but our elopement package comes with flowers now. These are so realistic and romantic looking!
Holly’s flowers I think?

You don’t have to use the elopement flowers. I told them I still want them on the cake and I would like to have the free flowers ( I’ll put them in a vase n our room.) but I am not using for ceremony. I don’t like the type that you cradle on your arm.
Did you look at Flowers by the Vase?

I would recommend real touch flowers, they are more pricey but they look very realalistic. I used them for my wedding and you couldn’t tell they were fake and they looked great in photos too.

Silk flowers have come a long way and most of the bouquets I’ve seen that were made of fake flowers look very real to me. That rather made up my mind of going the route of silk flowers myself. Plus, they are cheaper and it will last forever. I got mine on Etsy from KateSaidYes.

You could make your own. I found orange Gerbera Daisys at the dollar tree the other day that look absolutly real. Just an idea.

I’ve considered making a fake bouquet but my concern is that they will appear fake in pictures. I’ve noticed it’s more so the ‘greens’ of the flowers (stems and leaves) than the buds that look fake to me.
However the image above looks 100% real, and I would never have guessed they were fake.
