I’m having a trouble deciding between fake and real flowers and I was wondering if any of you did fake flowers then got the pictures back and totally regreted it? I’m not really into flowers, but I don’t want them to look super cheesy in the pics after.
Pics/Comments please 😉 Thanks!

I’m a fan of real flowers but that’s just me. I say if you have the money definitely opt for real, most people will take the centerpieces and it’s just nicer to take real fragrant flowers home, but if it is a money issue than fake flowers might be a better option. I have never been to a wedding where they used fake flowers though, so I’m not sure how they reflect in pictures.

I’m a big fan of real flowers, but I’ve seen some silk flower arrangements that look very real and beautiful. I think there’s another thread on here somewhere on this and some bees even said that depending where you get your flowers from, the difference may not even be that big between real and fake. You can always go the simple route too and just use a smaller amount of more inexpensive flowers. Good luck!!

I did silk with brooches and I gotta say, I’m so glad I did. I’m not a ‘real’ flower girl (anything that costs that much money and then dies isn’t worth it, IMO) and I don’t regret going with silk at all. I was able to use flowers I wanted to, instead of what was in season and with the quality I got, they look realistic enough for me 🙂

We did a combination of silks a real touch. For the centerpeices, we did the silks from the venue, and for the aisle and some of the other decor, I made silk hydrangea poms, and for our bouquets, we used real touch flowers. I do not have any regrets at all. I get to look at my bouquet every day, and it will last forever. Here are a few pictures.
Example of what the venue supplied.
The poms that I made.
And my bouquet.

If you aren’t into flowers – what about doing something altogether different? Plants? or a jewelry bouquet? Wheat? Feathers?
