    Wow, you’re amazing! So pretty! It looks just like it to me.  I plan on doing my own flowers too, and hadn’t decided yet to go for real or silk, I think you just helped me make my decision!  Could you maybe post a tutorial as to how you did it?

    Wow they really do look the same! Way to go. Now you can use that $500 you saved for something else wedding related or not!

    Some florist charge an insane amount for the same reason some dress designers do for simple designs…because they can. It’s a convience fee of having someone else do the flowers for you.

    There are reasons flowers CAN be expensive (out of season, bad crops, rare color) just like dresses (hand sewn, detailed, fabric) but when it comes to the basics like white roses there’s no way they should cost that much.

    Even if they charged $60/hr for their time it wouldn’t take them more than an hour to put that together, plus the cost of the flowers is going to be cheaper to them than a retailer, so max that should be $80-90.

    They look great. You can’t even tell which is the professional and which is yours.
