I’ve been experimenting with real touch flowers, and they look so nice! The one thing I have researched is that RT can cost just as much as fresh if you’re not careful. I’ve been hitting Hobby Lobby this month with their half-off stems sale (including their brand of RT). Here is a picture of some of the stems I was fiddling with. Once I figure out what I want my bouquets to look like, I will buy a bunch (just have to wait for the next sale). I hear Michael’s also sells them.

As far as being pretty, I have no problem with them. And that is my only requirement for flowers – that they be pretty. Other than that, I’m a dummy and know nothing.

The only thing I’ve considered for/against real vs fake is cost. If it’s not going to save me money, then I’d just do real. If it WILL save me money, I’m so game. Ya know?

Those examples are so pretty!

Honestly, I just put 5 flowers together in a spiral using this method:

I didn’t even tie the bottom since I was just bunching them together to see how it would look (then I just stuck some beads in them since I want to do a bead-flower combo). I’m not sure how to do the handle yet. I’ve read a few tutorials, but I’m worried the bottom will look bad. We’ll see once I get that far. πŸ˜‰ It doesn’t seem that hard, unless you are doing something really different. I’m considering taking a floral class from a craft store to help.

Also, I did a basic cost breakdown. If I get the stems on sale for $2.50/ea. (reg $5), and I need 10 for my bouquet, and 5 for the BMs (3 of them), that will be $62.50 just for flowers. Then include maybe $100 worth of beads (for what I’m doing) and ribbon, it’ll be less than $200 for all of our bouquets (not sure what to do for bouts yet). Considering most bridal bouquets are worth $200, I think it’s a steal, and like PP I don’t care about having fresh flowers as long as they look good. My problem is not over-purchasing. I already spend $80 buying tons of different flowers and supplies just to try things out, and half of that is waste.
