I’m considering buying a silk flower bouquet off etsy to try and save money but I’m concerned that it won’t look real enough. Anyone have any thoughts, ideas, pictures? If i get the bouquet off etsy what should i do about my bridesmaids bouquets and the boutonnieres? Anyone not have those to save money? Help!
Here are a few of the links i was looking at:

I had a friend from church who is great with flowers put together flowers from Hobby Lobby (when they were half off). They looked amazing! 4 bm bouquets, my bouquet, 2 mother and 2 grandmother corsages, 7 bouts and I think it was around $150 or so
That’s my bouquet and to the right in the 2nd pic is his bout

I did mine from hobby lobby, and with half off sales and coupons, it was inexpensive. I loved it, and got lots of compliments on it.

They have flowers that are called Real Touch that actually feel soft like real flowers. This bouquet is a miX. This isn’t the final product, these are just the flowers that I’m using. I think silk is a great idea 🙂 all of these flowers combined were less than $30.00. We’re planning on a small budget And I didn’t even think of silk until I became a bee! Good luck!I am using silk for my bouquet for my wedding :). They were all 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby.

I’m posting again, but HobbyLobby has a fantastic array of flowers to fit any budget and any style. They also have everything else you may need to assemble the bouquet; wraps, ribbons, pins, pearls, sparkle, etc. if you don’t live close to one it may be worth the drive!
