    Very pretty.  I’m thinking about using faux flowers; where did you get yours?

    I am considering using fakes!  I agree with PP, where are yours from?

    It makes me wonder, if the fakes look this good (as good as the real thing in my opinion) why not save the money and go with the fake?

    My friend used faux flowers in her wedding.  She was totally satisfied and no one cared/noticed that they weren’t real.

    I’m using fake flowers for the bouquets and possibly the centerpieces, too 🙂 I could care less about flowers.

    The picture in my icon is what my bouquet will look like.

    Rocking the fake flowers too. It was easier, I got exactly what I wanted, in season or no, and won’t be worrying about if they wilt or get broken or anything.

    Our bouquets were real, but our centerpieces were fake. I don’t think anyone really could tell or cared.

    We used faux for the Maid/Matron of Honor and my bouquet, and real for the rest.  No one had a clue!  In fact, it looks like I used the same flowers from your pic!

    I don’t really like the look of faux flowers, or the texture. We were on a super tight flower budget and ended up only spending 418 dollars for ours because we bought wholesale. 418 dollars ended up buying enough fresh flowers and greenery to make three Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, a flower girl bouquet, a bridal bouquet of PEONIES, eight centerpieces, two large altar arrangements, and several smaller arrangements we used at the cake table, family photo display, etc. So I’m just saying if cost is the main reason for faux flowers, don’t let that keep you from having fresh flowers.
