I am just starting wedding planning and thought that silk flowers were SOOO cheap. Well they aren’t! They are frickin expensive!
Now my question is, are silk and real comparable in price and its just preference or are real flowers that much more expensive then silk?
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

UGH! I know! I had the same problem, I was thinking I was gonna save so much money on doing the centerpieces myself with silk flowers, and I found out the price and was like ‘WOW, maybe I wont have flower centerpieces…’ lol

Check the prices of real flowers in bulk at stores like costco or sams club. You will be surprised. You can also find great deals on real flowers at your local farmers market.

We bought ours through afloral.com. We can’t have real flowers due to USDA restrictions and the rules of our cruiseline, so we’re got the flowers we wanted in real-touch. I think ours were part of a close-out sale.

Hey there! Unfortunately, some time silk can be just as expensive as frseh, however it depends on your supplier and types of flowers. The average wedding that i do i charge around $400. This is with a party consisting of 5 bridesmaids and groomsmen. If any of you would like a more specific quote, feel free to message me or check out my facebook page. hope this helps!

Most craft stores have cyclical sales. I waited and bought silks at 50% off, so they were pretty reasonable.
