    Yes- real flowers are necessary at the church and reception

    You only need real flowers at the church

    Spring for real flowers for bridesmaids only

    It's ok to not have any real or faux flowers

    At least have faux flowers in the centerpieces

    Other.. Explain below please

    It is absolutely whateverrrr you want. 

    I have never heard anyone leave a wedding saying, “Oh man, the FLOWERS were my favourite part.”

    You certainly don’t have to have flowers. Brooch bouquets are beautiful and candles as centerpieces are fine. I’ve seen people use books as part of the centerpieces as well, if you really want to add something. You could also add a natural element like pine cones or cotton bolls too, depending on the theme/feel of your wedding.

    I did one flower arrangement at the location of the actual ceremony (on a mantle behind the officiant). I had a bouquet, and attendants and family had corsages and boutonnieres. Sum total of my flowers. I think our entire flower bill was something like $180. 

    You don’t need a bunch of flowers everywhere. It’s nice to have some, but they aren’t necessary. I loved the flowers I had, loved them, but it’s not like they last or anything, so it can be huge expense for something that’s perishable.

    people ask about flowers because i think there is an expecation, but honestly, i can’t remember the flowers from any wedding i’ve ever been to. couldn’t tell you the type of colors. i think they are a huge waste of money, and if you’re on a budget and if you don’t think they are that important, then i say skip it!

    i’m doing just the personal bouquets and corsages/bouts, but otherwise no other flowers.

    i dont think its necessary at all..im doing faux flowers for the bouquets and stuff…but going over the top for flowers seems pointless…they are expensive and you cant really do anything with them afterwards

    You don’t NEED them.  Yes, you can get married without flowers.  But I don’t like fake flowers, so I voted for at least getting your Bridesmaid or Best Man some real bouquets.
