    Yep. Can totally tell it's fake.

    If I squint and look to the side, it looks okay.

    It looks legit! Would totally think it's real

    The dahlia looks great, the rest of the flowers are what looks fake to me and the leaves.

    I can’t tell it’s fake in the pic but when I think of dahlias I don’t think of the white flower. I used to work in a flower shop… Are you sure you can’t get it in the fall when you marry? The fall is when we sold the most dahlias for both weddings and special occasions. Further, I’m getting married in Nov and I am considering dahlias myself. When I think of fall flowers I instantly think dahlias.

     

    Here is an article that supports they are available in the fall and that it’s their season…

    If you like the look of dahlias but find they may be too expensive, have you considered zinnias? They are a very close look to dahlias. So much so they are easily confused.

    LOVE the flowers for your sash!!

    @LadyWhiskey:  I did the same and mixed some fake flowers into a real bouquet and no one could tell (I think most assume if some are real then they all are!). Try to get a picture with a better camera in a closeup, like how your “rings on the flower” photo will be and see how you like it, since I think that is when the appearance of the fake flowers will matter most (zoomed in photos)
