I love the look of these:

These are also awesome:
I also really love the look of wooden flowers, but I don’t think the price is much different from that of real flowers unfortunately.

There are also diy wedding flower websites that you can order real flowers from- which would be considerably cheaper than the florist. Might check into that for your bouquet at least. You’re getting married in June, which is prime flower time. Depending on where you live, you may be near some pick it yourself farms. Not necessarily roses, but in June there would be peonies which are full and glorious and would be a perfect bouquet. If you decide to go the paper route, there are tissue paper and coffee filter flowers that are sweet and would be cheaper than doing fabric flowers. Google DIY paper flowers! and post pics when you’re done so we can all admire your work!
