    I would go for the real flowers. To me, these don’t look very classy–more like something for an art class in grade school. But if you like them, stick with them!

    Hmm, theyare pretty! But, almost seem to be more of an “accent” item. You could use tissue paper flowers to decorate the tables or any other place in your venue that needs a little extra “oomph!” I don’t think they are ugly, but for bouquets I probably wouldn’t pick them over real flowers. That being said, it depends on you and what you want. 🙂

    I’d go for the real flowers if they were being gifted to me! Those are pretty, but a little.. promish. Or like something you’d see at a Valentine’s Day dance.

    i think the tissue paper flowers you made look great, good job!

    however, I still voted for you to take the offer of fresh flowers. What a nice gift! And how can you NOT like real flowers? Nothing compares. Lucky you!

    @CrispyRN:  NOT that I could ever make anything that looked remotely better, believe me!

    Those are cute but free fresh flowers?  Go for it!  I have yet to see fake that are as convincing as the real deal.

    I was going to make my own flowers too but…after my trials I might go with real ones. They’re cute but don’t have the right feel. I might keep trying but I’ve decided on real flowers on the tables, they just feel more alive than my creations, if my bouquet comes out ok I might still use it.

    Love the ballerina ribbon wrap! Very well done.

    @CrispyRN:  For fresh flowers go with something simple and don’t worry about it. I think simple is pretty hard to mess up.
