    That quote looks ok to me…I ordered real touch silk flowers from a seller on Etsy and paid around $500 + shipping for a brides bouquet, 7 bridesmaids bouquets, 1 grooms boutonnière, 4 other boutonnieres and 2 corsages.

    Those prices look around the same as my real flowers. If you are gonna spend that much anyways, why not go with the real thing? Just my opinion.

    bootsky:  Real ones die, many flowers (ie all of my favourites) are only seasonally available, have to be picked up at a certain time and handled a certain way to keep them looking good throughout the ceremony, and are not the greatest idea for those with allergies. 

    The quote looks fair to me!

    Looks on par with others I’ve seen. I love the thought of keeping them forever, but the trade-off is often a much higher price per stem vs. real flowers. Not ALL flowers fall in that category but quite a few do. Decisions, decisions.

    The real flowers for which I received a quote were cheaper. But that being said those flowers will die whereas the real touch ones won’t.

    mrsdevries:  i only had a bridal bouquet and a bout but those prices don’t look too bad.  Do you have a picture of the complexity of bouquet? are they natural touch? My bridal bouquet was 12″ and $145, his bout was $8.

     

    ETA: Mine were from Wedideas, ordered in oct 2013 and my wedding was in july of this year.  those suckers traveled to my destination wedding in CHECKED luggage and still came out looking amazing.

    mrsdevries:  I did a custom bouquet. I told them the colors and the flowers I wanted in it and this is what they came up with!! Sorry for the second pic. I cropped us out of it.  You can get the general idea though! They photographed beautifully IMO. 

    I love your bridal bouquet choice!

    mrsdevries:  I used real touch flowersfor my destiantion wedding. I paid simlar to what you dod but I had 6 bridemsaids so it was a bit more expensive. Everyone thought our bouquets were real and I have my bouquet to this day 2 yearls later looking pretty in a vase in my guest room 🙂 Was so worth the money to me! I used bloombridal.com
