I’m using Real Touch flowers but am just now placing my order so I don’t have pics to share yet! ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m praying that they look real and not like a cheap curtain.  ๐Ÿ™

The only people who will know that they’re fake is your wedding party! ๐Ÿ™‚ And they shouldn’t care!

I used all silk flowers. The only “real touch” ones in my bouquet were the cala lilies. I also included paper flowers.

I believe it cost me around $15 ๐Ÿ™‚

We used flowers from Michael’s, and bought them during their half off stems sale. I think for everything we used (bouquets, alter arraingments, etc) we spent about $100. Because of the colors, you could obviously tell they were fake, but they still turned out great and I love them so much. The best part is, all my girls got to keep their bouquets. Mine is on my entertainment center in my living room, so I get to look at it everyday!

And I should add that we didn’t use all the flowers, so I would say about $75 was about the actual amount for the flowers we did use

I got fake!  We’ve done the bm bouquets, bouts, and corsages so far.  The bm bouquets cost a total of $9 each, the moh bouquet was $15, the bouts were $2, and corsages $5.  My bouquet will end up being about $40 but if I got it real, it would have been at least $100 because of the types of flowers I wanted.  I only have a picture of the bm bouquet before the stems were trimmed.  The lighting also sucks from my flash lol

I’m thinking about using Real Touch flowers for my wedding too. There are some great pictures on ETSY with feedback for sellers.

I’m going to have to follow this thread to see what other Bees say

I would recommend Afloral.com, they have really good quality flowers.  If you are interested in them looking as real as possible stick to colors that are natural for that type of flower.  I bought some burnt orange cymbidium orchids there for my wedding and they feel and look real approximately $10 per bouquet of 9 flowers.  I also bought some burgundy rose buds for $9 for 21 roses.  I find it’s better to buy the pre-made bouquets for the price rather than the individual flower.  Here are some flowers I’ve purchased from them that are excellent quality.
