It’s a composite bouquet, aka a glamelia, made up of one rose plus many, many roses’ worth of petals. It’s possible you can find a silk glamelia but I’ve never looked.

My daughter was considering one of those, for her bouquet. Her sample photo showed a wider flower, but a shorter stem – maybe that’s what they make for brides?  She decided on a mixed bouquet, instead, since she didn’t want all ivory. They were both over $200.

tayler1991:  you could probably make one yourself with faux flowers from the craft store for less than a pro would charge

If you don’t find one that you like, a hydrangea blossom is HUGE and could work as well.  They have lots of different colors available too.

 tayler1991:  Beautiful! As hogoboom2012:  has stated about the hydrangea, I’m using that flower because then I only need to use one or maybe two little bundles…or one larger bundle. I’ll be doing the light green one in a silk flower…but they’re pretty.

tayler1991:  Bunches of baby’s breath, has become very popular, too. I saw photos of a black-tie wedding, at an exclusive club recently, and baby’s breath was all over the place and the only flower in the bridesmaid’s bouquet.

tayler1991:  It would be very neat. The tutorial PP posted looks like it would be pretty easy but very time consuming! I’m sure you could buy silk rose petals too if you wanted, instead of taking roses apart.
