In answer to your question no all flowers do not need to be fake. I did fake flowers for my bouquet and my Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets.  I got them from this web site

My bouquet:

My BM’s Bouquets

@s.renea9:  Honestly I just couldn’t see spending a lot of money on flowers for the bouquets/bouts.  My whole order from the site in my previous post was like $200.00. 

I did have real flowers at the church for the alter.  So you can mix the two. That and I kept my bouquet and is sitting on a shelf with our cake toppers.

I haven’t finished the ribbons, but this is my mock-up for bridal bouquet.  

I think you can have a beautiful mix of fresh/faux flowers.  We are doing a week long destination wedding, so I don’t want to be worrying about floral delivery/survival!  I’ll be doing a mix of faux florals and dried flowers to add texture.

All of the flowers at my wedding were handmade out of tissue paper. They looked great!

(the colours are washed out in this pic)

My bouquet. I ended up adding rhinestones to the “petals” and changing the ribbon to something a bit more fancy

Our boutonnieres were also made of paper! 🙂

here are the inspiration pics i gave my friend, she is making my bouquets, every flower will be handmade…but I like the fact that i can keep my bouquet and it’s not going to die.  and lets be honest, they are cheaper and fake flowers have come such a long way from years past.

I didnt ever like fake flowers either cause I immmediatly think of the gross fake looking ones they sell in the dollar store lol but I’m getting fake flowers for my destination wedding cause I want them to last after the wedding as a keepsake. I wish I could post a pic but the website wont let me copy the pics. They make fake flowers look so real now that people might now even know yours are fake!

My girls had real flowers, but mine were fake because I wanted to keep my bouquet forever:
