I don’t think Michael’s sells anything online. You will probably have to call them and/or go in for prices. I am not sure that it would be much less expensive, if any to pay someone to make fake bouquets for you rather than to go with real flowers. I suggest you search utube for videos on DIY bouquets.

We are ordering our flowers from Bloomed to Last. This site came highly recommended to me by some bees and the gal who runs the site has been great to work with so far. You can order flowers that she has designed or do a custom quote (like we did).

From my personal experience I’ve found real flowers to be way cheaper than fake. You can try hiring somebody on Cragislist that might have some experience, or perhaps doing diy flowers from a website like fiftyflowers.com. I have 20-25 centerpieces a bouquet, a throwaway bouquet, a virgin mary bouquet, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 corsages, 6 bouttonieres, 2 large church arrangements and rose petals all for about $1000 dollars. I lucked out because my flower person is a person from my church and I live in a small town. I’m doing garden roses, dahlias, hydrangeas, spray roses as my choices because they’re beautiful and cheap.

Now that I think of it, my flower lady also does silk bouquets and ships anywhere in the world. If you’re interested I can give you her info in personal mail.

I worked in a flower shop for several years and I can tell you that (maybe just in this area of the country) but usually silk flowers aren’t much cheaper than real flowers and sometimes are more expensive but thats if you go into a floral shop and have them make you a silk flower bouquet. O and you might want to look on etsy.com

atleast in my area…silk flowers are much cheaper! i got all of my flowers for under 75 dollars. that includes bridal party, mine and all centerpieces and other vases for the reception. i dont think you can get that in real flowers. some ppl pay thousands of dollars on real flowers for their weddings.

i literally have NO artistic skills or crafting or anything and i have put together some pretty KA bouquests. YOu should take a stab at it. do you maybe have a friend or your mom who could help it not?

Either way…good luck, i am sure your flowers will be beautiful.

I recommend afloral.com
