I need your opinions!
My centerpieces are elaborate candelabra arrangements. There are a lot of flowers required for what I envision and it’s going to get quite expensive. I was wondering if I can put a few fake flowers amidst the real ones to save on costs and add fullness. What does everyone think? Would this work or is this a wedding faux-pas? Thanks!

All my flowers are fake! Go with the fake ones 🙂

I would opt for less real ones. fake ones that look good tend to be just as expensive as real flowers, why dont you use greenery leaves etc to bulk it up

loads and loads of babys breath would make your flowers go further, babys breath is relatively inexpensive and you dont need many other flowers with them and they will look wonderful.

I once received a flower arrangement with real flowers, but the exspensive orchids were fake. I couldn’t tell by looking at them. I didn’t notice until the rest of the flowers started to wilt. I would go for it; just be careful on which fake flowers you choose. To me, almost all fake roses look fake unless you spend a fortune on each stem. And if you have to spend a ton of money you might as well have real flowers. Fake orchids hydrangeas, and lilies look the most real for the price especially when you compare them to the cost of real flowers. Good Luck!

We’re doing all fake for our centerpieces…it will be an incredible amount of money saved, and honestly i do LOVE real flowers but if people judge based on us choosing fake over real, they’ll just have to deal with it 🙂

My whole approach has been “If I spend less on ____, I can put more into the party for my guests.”
Anyone who matters isn’t going to care what’s on the table. 🙂
