I am doing alot of DIY projects for the wedding! I am considering all silk flowers for the whole wedding. I truly just want to go with the more reasonable option; I can’t really decide what’s cheaper silk or real flowers?
I love the fact that silk flowers will last forever, I could possibly reuse items from the wedding; and lastly, it is a July wedding so silk flowers won’t wilt and will look just as stunning . At the same time how cannot beat fresh flowers!
Here’s my question for you guys! Have you guys ordered flowers from silkflowersfactory.com or afloral.com, any silk flowers site period? and if so, were you happy with the way they looked?
I just don’t want them to look tacky.
I am not really sure what flowers we will be using yet, and the color scheme is still being worked out either pink,yellow or purple, a combination of or seperately.
Here’s the list of flowers we need to narrow down:
and of course, Rose’s

I’m using silk flowers for my floral arrangements. My wedding colors are somewhat difficult to match with fresh flowers and I came across a silk floral bouquet I loved on Etsy.

The pro’s of silk are that you could resell them after the wedding. I am going to use higH quality silk flowers in my friends arrangements because so many people are psyched about her vision that three brides are going in with her on them so they will be in three weddings this summer and then she will resell them. I have used afloral in the past and am very happy with them.
Real flowers can be cheaper if you DIY them otherwise it really depends on where you live. The local florist quoted me $330 for this bouquet when I can get it in Baltimore for $140.

I say go silk! I love all of those flowers you chose! I was just browsing etsy and found a bouquet I loved that matched my colors and I think everything turned out well. I went ahead and got everyone’s flowers made and they turned out great.

I bought mine at Hobby Lobby, and so far have only made the boutiners and honestly, they don’t look that bad. No, they’re not real, but they don’t looke fake. I was surprised about how well they turned out.
Pros of fake flowers:
- Won’t wilt.
- You can keep your bouquet for years to come instead of dry flowers falling about.
- If you don’t like it, you can always fix, re-fix and fix again.
- Cheaper, assuming you find what you like on a half-off sale.
- It’s yours, you created it and it’s the only one out there 🙂
