@May2013Wedding:  My only suggestion is be careful when submerging silk, at my Best Friends wedding all the water changed colors. Otherwise I think your ideas are wonderful and will look very nice!

 @weddingbound:  I cannot believe those are artificial! They are gorgeous!

It’s not weird. I am only usign real flowers for the Bridal party and the landing of the big staircase. Real potted Orchids as centerpieces.

All else will be silk leaves (part of table decor) and silk white Lilies as accents to chairs, backdrop and staircase in some spots.

Not weird at all.. I did the same thing just a different combo.  My bouquets were fake and my reception flowers were real.

I’m using faux flowers on my tall centerpieces and ceremony arrangements and real flowers on my low centerpieces, bouquets, bout’s, and corsages.

All of the flowers used for my wedding decor were fake, while my bouquet, corsages, and mothers’ roses were real. It worked out great!

…I’m actually doing the opposite of @LadyBear! I’m doing felt flower bouquets (Etsy: MuncleFredArt) for our wedding party, corsages, mothers, etc., and going with garden roses and ranunculus flowers from a wholesaler (FiftyFlowers) for our reception tables. 🙂

I actually did not want real flowers anywhere until my grandmother made me just talk to a florist and then I went flower crazy and wanted a big bouquet lol. So I had real flowers for myself, my bridesmaids and groomsmen and real petals for my flower girl to toss. Then I used fake flowers at the reception to avoid water anywhere near the antique 200 year old family bibles my grandmother let me borrow to put under half of the centerpieces. Plus I did my own centerpieces/decor so it was easier to use fake flowers. I think your ideas are very lovely!

I’ve seen some boquets and things done really well with a mix of fake and real.
