@bumpswonder:  I used fiftyflowers.com and Costco for my flowers (real) and DIY’d them.  I think it’s much harder to make silk/fake flowers to look nice (I don’t have that kind of skill).  My flowers cost me $320 total.

@bumpswonder:  I haven’t gotten them yet, but i am planning on doing fake flowers and going with afloral.com. i’m doing everything as super budget friendly as i can – and quite frankly there are just other things i would rather spend my money on. we are also doing a destination wedding, so it just seems easier to just throw them on my carry on rather than deal with another vendor there…

Fake!! it is a1/4 of the cost and you can sell them. I have seen many weddings done with fake, an looks beautiful. All about finding the right product.

I bought silk hydrangeas from efavormart, andvery happy with them. I am bunching them with real babys breath to give that real scent.

But this is also dependent on wedding size and cost. We are doing fake becaus we have huge families therefore, our guest list is huge and huge venue.

@bumpswonder:  We are going with fake for the bouquets to save some money since I have 7 bridesmaids. I was worried because I really don’t like when you can tell flowers are fake but I discovered this shop that uses sola wood flowers and I think they look fantastic! Also they are a keepsake after the wedding 🙂

We are using real flowers for our centerpieces but we are buying the flowers from the grocery store and arranging them ourselves 🙂
