I am debating weather or not I should use real flowers or real touch flowers… I want a very simplistic bouquet (24 roses for my bridal, 14 for my bridesmaids). Either way it will be a DIY project.
At Sam’s Club, they sell 75 real roses for about $85. And at Hobby Lobby the real touch roses are $2.99 (not including the extra 50% off for floral). I will spend more at Hobby Lobby but the plus side is I can either keep the bouquet or sell it to make some of my money back. I cant do either with real roses.
I really just cant make up my mind…

I did Real Touch from Hobby Lobby and was very happy with the results!

@Miss_nemesys: I don’t go to Hobby Lobby much. Is the extra 50% off applied to the entire purchase? And is it $2.99 per bloom? If the answer is yes to both of these, I’d say Real Touch. At the very least, you could end up selling them for half of what you paid. So in the end, you’d save yourself about $30 on 75. And that’s not even counting the shipping you’d pay for Sam’s flowers.

I bought a Real Touch peony from http://flowerdepotstore.com/
They way I look at it is, real flowers die. You spend all that money on something that is going to die unless you spend even more money to freeze them.
Real Touch can be sold or even displayed in your house after the wedding.
I love these peonies. They actually feel real. I wrote a review here about it.

@Stellar Magnitude: the 50% off is per rose bud stem. They also have fully bloomed roses for $4.99 a stem. They 50% off applies for that as well.
@abbyful: I love your bouquet! Very beutiful even unfinished!
@Miss Tattoo: You have a good point! They do die! But I always imagined when tossing the bouquet, flower petal flying everywhere as ladies fight for it lol…
