I’m leaning toward making my own Calla lily bouquet and was wondering if anyone has any experience with imitation flowers. If so, what type looks most real : Real Touch or Latex….or are they the same? Where did you purchase them? Are you glad that you didn’t go with fresh flowers or do you regret it?
This is my dream bouquet—

my friend had Real Touch roses and magnolias for her wedding. I was amazed by them. Seriously! no idea about the latex–are those the ones at Michael’s?
Me, i went with regular silks. Spent $200 on ALL THE FLOWERS. Can’t ever regret that decision. I have too many allergies and real flowers weren’t a big priority for me…an open bar was, though =]

I ordered TONS of flowers from Afloral. Had great customer service – returns with no problems, good prices. I joined their website and got coupon codes too!
Some of them were calas – but I sent them back because they were not the style I wanted. I think the real touch and latex are about the same – especially with calas.

That picture is just like one of my inspiration photos. DIY is a great choice for a boquet with only one type of flower. I went with real ones and they held up really well. Sorry, I can’t give you any advice on real touch vs. latex 🙁

I have a similar question…All the flowers that I have seen at Hobby Lobby and Michaels look like your basic fake flowers. Are these considered real touch flowers? Some of them are 5.99 per stem which is the same as at Save-on but they just look like silk flowers to me.
Are these the best fake flowers available?

I just made my own bouquet today out of real touch calla lilys and it turned out nice. I attached a picture. I dont regret not using real flowers because real is sooo expensive and doesn’t last forever. The real touch flowers look very real as well!
