So, I am trying to decide what I want to do for flowers. I am such a “find a deal” junkie that I like getting things lined up early so I can search for the best deal. Anyways, I am considering using both fake and real flowers. How do you think this would work? I am thinking that maybe I would use fake flowers for the bouquets (since the guests won’t really be in contact with them) and real flowers for the aisle decorations or at the reception. This is the very beggining of this thought so if it sounds crazy let me know. Thoughts on where the real or fakies should go?

I don’t think it’s crazy at all! I’m thinking of doing something similar, actually, but the opposite. I was going to make fake pomanders for the aisles (sunflowers most likely), then real ones for the tables and bouquets. Probably fake pomander for the flower girl too; she’s only going to be 2 years old so it’ll probably be easier.

I will be doing fake flowers for the bridal party, and to decorate the arbor. The aisle decor and centerpieces will be real flowers.
I decided to do this b/c I want to be able to take pictures at any point during the day with my flowers and have them look fresh and perfect. No sagging bouquets or bouts to worry about. Plus I can order them in advance and keep tweaking them until they are perfect for the day of.

I’m planning on doing a mixture as well.
Fake for the bouquets and boutineers and real for the centerpieces.

I used a combination of real, fake and dried flowers, and I loved how they came out!
Whoa, that came out huge! Let me try again…

One of my friends had real flowers for the bouquets and fake ones for the centerpieces…I thought it looked great.
