  • poll: Should I use fake flowers or look for cheaper fresh flowers?

    Keep looking for fresh flowers--you CAN'T use fake!!

    Fake are perfectly fine--no point wasting your money!

    @Oribel013690:  My Fiance insists that fakes are cheesy – but I think that they’re so good now, that most people can’t even tell the difference! Especially in a boquet.

    Since your BM’s will only need 9 daisys each – do you think that’s somethign you can DIY (still purchasing your boquet from the florist)? Maybe jsut get some nice ones from the grocery store yourself? You would probably save a ton by doing that.

    I have fake flowers in my brooch bouquet and honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t want to worry about them wilting of falling off, transporting them to the venue etc. we are using real flowers for our centrepieces tho.

    I don’t think they look horrible, but fake flowers will always look fake. [Real touch are the closest you can get, but some of those are more expensive than buying real flowrers!].

    Do you have a sams club or costco nearby? I am getting my boughets/bouts/corsages in a package for a little over $200.

    I compromised by making my centerpieces, bridal bouquet, moh bouquet, flower girl basket all with fake flowers (bouquets using the real touch flowers) and ordered real flowers for the corsages, boutioneres, toss bouquet, and arrangements for the church from my florist. That those that would be offended by the fake flowers might get fooled into thinking their all real. That’s my hope anyways. I still spent about 100+ on my bridal bouquet. But I get to keep it forever!!

    I got my bouquets from the grocery store… I just coordinated with the florist there. Mine was 60 and my bridesmaids were 25.
