Originally I wanted a peach and ivory peony and rose bouquet for me and white hydrangeas for my BMs. I found some good quality silk flowers that I like but don’t have exactly what I’m looking for but still think that I can make them work (for 1/10th of the cost of the real flowers I wanted) then we could use the money for a videographer or something else. Friends have gave good reviews on this site as well. Our colors are tiffany blue and peach. I’m stuck on what to do.
Here’s the peony bouquet and a rose bouquet. I’m thinking one for me and the other for the BMs. Their dresses will be tiffany blue. Who should have what? Or should I take them apart and try to DIY my own bouquets w/ both types?

I would personally stick with real flowers. Maybe it’s just the picture but those flowers look stiff. If you keep your bridesmaid bouquets simple it will help keep the cost down. I had an elaborate bouquet and had the girls carry a simple wrapped calla lily and it looked great. I know you are thinking of peonies and roses but you can always have a florist sub in ranunculus for the roses to keep the cost down.

I DIY’d fresh flowers and it was actually cheaper than buying silk flowers for me.

@julies1949: thanks for the links! I do like those, although maybe a little fuller. I worry though because all my friends that have used afloral returned them because of the poor quality, but that is the sort of look I’m going for!

@MrsN14: If your wedding date is correct, you have loads of time to order and send them back if you don’t like them.
I have no experience with that company but there must be some reviews here on WeddingBee.
