I used KateSaidYes on etsy. She is part of the official Etsy a Wedding Team, so she’s like the best of the best! She uses high quality silk flowers mixed with some Real Touch flowers. My bouquet came out so lovely and the best part is that it still stands in a crystal vase as a centerpiece and it will always look just as beautiful as it did at the wedding. I could not justify real flowers when I could get fakes that look just as good and last forever. Also I wanted peonies which are just so expensive!

We did real. I have never seen a bouquet of fake flowers that look good in real life.

I did silk for me, my BM’s and centerpieces. I saved $ and everyone got to keep their bouquet.

if you do artificial, do a good quality like real touch or similar. from someone that though it would be easy and cheaper to diy my own bouquet, buy a pre made real touch bouquet on etsy. mine turned out beautiful eventually, but it took 3 tries and i bought lots of stuff i didn’t use. it was trial and error. i spent as much as i would have on a pre made professional looking piece.

it IS possible, though. if you use the right flowers and keep reworking it until you’re happy.
