I bought the majority of mine at Hobby Lobby because I liked to see the flowers in person—some are definitely better than others. I bought a few from Afloral but I felt like those looked less real than the hobby lobby ones did (my roses looked and FELT real). Afloral looked a bit too much like foam. 

JoAnne fabrics had some really great greenery and lambs ear stems that I bought, but I didn’t care for their floral…I forget what their brand was called there.

I got some real touch flowers from afloral just to use around the house.  I bought two tulip “bunches” and one peony.

The peony is gorgeous.  The tulips.. are OK.  a few were squished/damaged.  They smelled like armpits for months.  I kept spraying them with perfume/febreeze and leaving them outside.. but still I’d get whiffs of sweat as I passed them for a long time.

Ebay. Bought lots from various sellers to test. Some were hideous. Some were amazing though and ended up ordering more from that seller. 

Do you have time to do this? It worked out very economical. 

We had real for bouquet and buttonholes but a mix of faux and real for all the decor.

amanda1988 :  Weird! I ordered doilies from afloral to put under my centerpieces and they had the same sweat/cat pee smell! There must be something up with their warehouses.
