    A friend of mine did fake orchids from afloral.com and they turned out good. people were smelling them and thought they were real.

    Planningamy:  my centerpieces were silks (pictured below) and I think they were lovely! I did dried lavender bouquets just to add a bit of texture, but had zero fresh flowers and thought everything looked quite nice 🙂

    We’re having fake flowers for the entire bridal party (excluding the men because my fiance thinks pocket squares will look better) and real flowers for our centerpieces. I think whatever you want will look fine though. It’s your wedding, do what makes YOU happy.

    I think fake flowers are the best! You can give a center piece and/or a bouquet to a family member (especially the moms and grandmothers) and keep one and it will last forever! You would be able to show your children etc. We are eloping and I am going to make my own bouquet with silk ribbon roses and the shoulder bouquet too, that way it will travel well in a container and because it’s just going to be the two of us I will be able to show family and friends the actual flowers not just photographs. It is a bit cheaper too, the moment one puts wedding in front of anything it seems the price escalate by 250% at least!

    Heres a close up of my fake flowers!!! Fooled everyone until you saw the underside of the leaves! And it traveled to our destination wedding in checked luggage with a plane change and still came out looking perfect! Resilient little suckers!!

    Planningamy:  I am using fake florals for the bouquet but real for centrepieces and decor. I love my fake bouquets and I’m happy that I will be able to keep them forever!

    Mine were fake. I thought they were beautiful and they were low maintenance and less expensive.

    Planningamy:  Go fake flowers! I decided against fresh because we’re having a winter evening ceremony so I flowers would be wilted before the ceremony even rolled around. It’s a lot of money to spend on something that won’t even make it through the day!

    There are so many options for fake flowers right now, you can do BEAUTIFUL displays for half the cost. I think some people get weird because when they hear fake, they immediately think of those cheap dollar store flowers that smell funny- gross.

    Last I was in Michaels and really looked at the flowers I was amazed! They’ll arrnage them for you there as well. Score!

    We aren’t doing any real flowers. I hate the waste.

    I am mostly done with my bouquet. Sola flowers & silk flowers with a few perserved flowers 🙂

    I was just in a wedding where all the bouquets /boutinners were fake. After the ceremony the bouquets were used as decor in the reception/dinner area. (8 bridesmaids) no one knew or cared.. they looked gorgeous. After dinner we went into another room for drinks/dancing and the staff rounded up the bouquets and brought them back to the getting ready room.

    I’m doing paper flowers. They are obviously not real, but they are absolutely gorgeous.

    We are having silk flowers for the bouquets, buttonholes, corsages etc (ordered off etsy) for our destination wedding. Not only are they cheaper than real flowers but they travel well and I love that everyone will be able to keep them afterwards!

    This is my bouquet:
