I have arranged flowers for many weddings (but am not a professional), and I really don’t see how using fake flowers could save you any money. Hydrangea cost about $2 a stem, which is the same price they sell for in craft stores.

The only fake flowers I will consider having are the ones that people will not be able to touch or get to close too/smell etc. So anything up high etc… and thats the only opinion I will say lol

I think they look great who cares if they are silk or fresh flowers.
I will say this I don’t like the flower inside the vase for some reason. Why not hand crystal inside the vase or wrap the vase in clear crystal rhinestone mesh, its kinda like wrapping paper but sparkley gemstones. You can buy it on ebay.

I’m using the same hydrangeas from Michaels. I think they look great. Honestly, at the end of the day, if you are happy with it, that is all that matters. i have found that no matter how much money you spend, fake or real, people are going to find something wrong with something. So, go for it and you can sell them when you are finished. Just do what makes you happy and you can’t go wrong!

I made bouquets out of hydrangeas for my wedding. They were $3 per stem and the place was so helpful. Look into wholesale flower shops. Between my 4 bouquets, centerpieces for 20 tables, and a boutinierre, I spent $85 on flowers!

Yes, they’re noticeably fake, but I still think they look very nice. Look into the cost comparison if you really want real flowers. It might not be that much more.

Very pretty. I love that vase as well.
