After getting a quote of 700 DOLLARS for 7 bouquets and 10 bouts…. i decided i was going to use fake flowers, and if ANYONE had a problem with it they could pay the 700 dollars for REAL flowers! I budgeted about 500 dollars for flowers but even that makes me sick to my stomach… I decided to go look around at Michaels and to my surprise the entire stock of fall flowers was 50 percent off….. i went for it. Grand total for ALL bouquets and bouts?…. 125 bucks! score! I know they don’t look real, but i think they look different and special and they didn’t cost me an arm and a leg… so all in all im happy! Have you used fake flowers? Did people notice? is it really THAT BIG of a deal?

@WeAreMarshalls: Those are beautifully done!!
I used fake ones too, and absolutely loved them! No one noticed and/or cared, and I have my bouquet to keep forever. Very, very worth it, IMO.

great job- the look lovely! We are doing fake flowers in the church…our church requires that we bring two sprays, and I could not stand to pay the price we were quoted. So we hit up a sale at AC Moore, and they look great!

Around here, EVERYONE uses fake flowers. No one would dream of spending all that money on real flowers that only last a short time. I personally can’t use real flowers. I’d sneeze like a maniac!
