We are on a really tight budget so my FI’s grandmother offered to make all the bouquets using fake or silk flowers, which I’m totally fine with. I need advice on what type or where/how I can quality fake flowers for a cheap price, OR if you decided to go this route, what tips do you have for find beautiful flowers on a budget?
BTW, my colors are a blush pink, light robins egg blue, burlap and lace for an outdoor spring wedding in Texas. I’m not particular that they HAVE to be exact colors just as long as they fit the theme/mold.
Thank you bees!

@ShabbyChicBee: I have decided to take this route as well. If you have walmart,dollar store and michaels near you they all have fake/silk flowers you can use to make bouquets. Im going to be looking around soon with my fiances mother as she is helping me make them.

Craft stores like Michaels and Joann’s have lots of good fake floral options.

@ShabbyChicBee: I was really against fake flowers but my mom convinved me to do it for the tables and they actually looked pretty cute. We got them all from Michael’s.

Dollar tree had some I was considering but in the end I went with real flowers and paper ones on the table.

@ShabbyChicBee: Hobby Lobby! They have “real touch” flowers or something like that. They often run 50% off sales, that is where I got mine!

@ShabbyChicBee: We used a mix of real and artificial flowers. Our ceremony and gazebo were artificial…..bridal party and reception were real. I got most of mine at micheals and a few at joanns with coupons!
