mrsdevries: Theses were about the same prices I got from my florist when I orignially got quotes for real touch silk flowers. I’m in Canada but I live on a boardering city and went to Hobby Lobby. Honestly you can do all these yourself a lot cheaper. I ended up making my reach touch bouquests for about $100-120 (mind you my guys, parents, his parents all said they didn’t want bouts/coursages and we have no flower girl/ring bearer. I made 7 bouquets (mine and 6 girls) for that price. I also waited til the had a sale on the stems I needed. They don’t take long at all to throw together and all you need is floral tape, real touch flowers/stems and ribbon. If you don’t want to do the work thats cool too but just thought I’d let ya know to help save a little money. Good Luck!

I am a real touch florist (I have an etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/PumpkinFloralsCrafts?ref=hdr_shop_menu) and your quote is a very good one, low-average for real touch.
I actually just sent out a quote today that was $1600 total for real touch flowers (mixed bouquets with succulents, lots of fillers, peonies, dahlies, roses–bridal, 10 bridesmaids, 12 bouts, 20 centerpieces, 2 moms).

Real touch vs silk is it just that they feel more like the real flower petals?
I love peonies too and want an abandunce of them in my centerpieces like this picture below but havent found anyone locally to make them.
Has anyone seen any etsy sellers who make custom silk arragments or rent them?

[email protected]: yes, real touch is that they feel like real flowers.
I I actually went ahead with my order from wedideas. The pricing changed a little but not much. I was told to order about 5 months ahead. I recently made my deposit on 10.4.14 and she sent me an email saying I should expect approval pics on 11.28.14 and an estimated ship date of 12.7.14!!
i would highly recommend wedideas. The customer service so far has been phenomenal. I’ve asked literally a gazillion questions and she has gotten back to me for evesy single one!!
