Hi, Bees! My bouquet is going to be callas and roses. Here it is: http://www.weddingbouquets.com/html/atd112.html. The roses will be ivory, though. My BMs bouqets are just calla lilies. This is theirs: http://www.weddingbouquets.com/html/atd228.html. Now, my question revolves around the calla lilies. My florist offers three kinds: ones that feel like a hard plastic, ones that feel like a rubber glove, and then natural touch. Obviously, natural touch are more expensive, but are they actually worth the cost? Is there that much of a difference in look? I have only seen them online, so I can’t really tell a difference. My florist has been great to work with, but I would like to get your opinions having gone through it or are about to. I am not so much worried about people feeling the flowers and saying that they are fake. I just want something that looks nice. Any suggestions?

@TiffanyMM: Get the real touch ones. I’m using them in my centerpieces. I actually found them at Hobby Lobby for 1.99 each and they are doing 50% off right now so .99 each!!! Here’s a pic

We had the real touch ones, and I really loved them. It’s just another picture from the Internet, but here they are at our reception! I think if it won’t blow your budget, it’s worth it, but not if it’s going to put a strain on the finances.

Just looking at the craft store, I’d say real touch all the way, they look noticeably better.
Also, FWIW, the company where I ordered my bouquets will only do NT callas & orchids. Apparently there’s a huge difference in quality for those flowers in NT vs. others, enough that they refuse to do anything else.

@Snow2bunny: Wow! That’s a great deal! They look great. I would prob DIY my own for that price. Too bad there is no Hobby Lobby where I live (Philly).
@jo.lee: Very nice. They look totally real to me!
@atalante: Ya, I think you are right. I went to Michael’s today. They didn’t have any real touch at the store. The callas that they had were big and felt like a rubber glove. They weren’t as bad as I imagined but were $4.99 a piece. That is interesting that your florist will only do natural touch callas. I think that say a lot. I am also using roses. What do you know about those, natural touch vs. not?
