I like the low ones. I find the other two, too busy.

I really kind of dislike the idea of mixing. I think I like it less than if you did all of the flowers in silk. I hate to be a negative nelly, I’m sorry.

I kind of like the idea, though I’d probably just go all silk for all decorations. Just for the cohesiveness that that provides.

You can still do real for bouquets/bouts and it’d be fine.

I really like the low ones.  And they look like carnations, which are fairly cheap – always a good thing!

Hmm…I think one or the other. I really like the ones with the manzanita branches!

When my friend got married, we did something very similar. The tall centerpieces were silk, and anything that would be close to people (bouquets, low centerpieces, etc) was real. I think everything looked great. The only way anyone could tell that the tall centerpieces were silk would be if someone was standing up looking closely. Especially if you have low lighting, no one will know the difference. I love the look of everything! My one suggestion would be to choose only one tall arrangement to mix with the low ones. Otherwise it will look less cohesive.

Too funny. I stared out doing the same exact things lol.. But I have since axed (at least for now lol) the manzanita branches! I am doing pomanders in tall vases and small vases also. I am also doing fake for the centerpieces and real for my girls.. It has taken me sometime to decide to do it.. But i am gonna! My Mother-In-Law thinks its worng but she is also not contributing to my close to 35,000$ wedding already.. So if i can save 1000$ by not using real flowers I will!!!  Did you price your manzanita branches.. they are not too chaep!!!! I found them the cheapest on ebay or saveoncrafts.com…good luck!!.. and they are all great.. you have great taste!!!!
