Hi bees! 🙂 My FI and I are an extremely stict budget. So real flowers for bouquets, centerpieces, etc are out of the question. Have any bees out there bought silk/artificial bouquets? How was the quality? Where were they purchased?
Thanks for the help in advance 🙂

@soon2bmrsvoorhees: I haven’t done mine yet but I know some bees had success with etsy. If you are making your own, Michaels and Hobby Lobby have great silks.

I personaly have no experience w/ silk flowers, so no recommendations to offer. 🙁
I know several bees bought there flowers at hobby lobby.
But, personally I think bouquets look the best when you purchase the silk flowers individually/individual stems and make it yourself vs. buying a preset already made bouquet, that way you have control of the shape & size you would like for your bouquet.

One thing to consider:
If you are getting nice, realistic looking silks, they can be just as much if not more than fresh flowers. You can get great deals on fresh flowers online (wholesale) or even at the grocery store. I am doing my own boquets and am saving a TON of money by doing fresh rather than silk.

Check out this thread. I answered this question in my second response with links to DIYs and such. Maybe that can help you out.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I thought of doing fresh flowers from growersbox.com and doing them myself but I don’t have the time to do them the week before my wedding. I will also have to transport them because I live in MO and getting married close to my home town in OK. So if I can find the time, I also worry about them getting damaged or wilting during transportation.
@TheFutureMcBride: I will definitely be checking out that link! 🙂
