    I think because of the vibrancy of the colors you can tell that the flowers are not real, but it is a very beautiful bouquet so I think the decision falls on you on whether you want it to look real or not.

    I went to a wedding last summer where they carried fake flowers and they were the kind of flowers that are in crazy colors that do not exist in nature LOL. So if you want to rock the fake flowers do it, and this way you can keep your bouquet FOREVER!

    (oh and on a side note, I wanted to do fake flowers but my mom AND Fiance nixed that idea immediately LOL)

    I think it looks good for fake flowers.  You can tell that they are fake, but if that doesn’t bother you, it’s fine

    The parts that jump out to me as fake are the hypericum berries, green leaves, and sticky out-y things from the tiger lilies.  The rest looks okay.  I personally don’t like silk flowers unless they look so real you try to smell them.  It’s up to you.  But I’d do real flowers.

    @jessyrez: I don’t know if you have a Sam’s Club in your area, but I’ve heard great reviews on their flowers should you decide not to go the silk route. They ship!

    @jessyrez:  I think the colors are really pretty but it’s overly fake looking. I guess it depends on if you’re going more for the color/idea of having flowers or if you want them to look lifelike. I’ve seen people who didn’t care if theirs looked lifelike and were more concerned about the colors. It’s all about what looks best to your eye. I’d go for something else though.

    I think the bouquet is beautiful.  Couldn’t you choose the flowers and have the same lady make them for you?  She does a great job.  Maybe with more toned down colors the flowers would look more real.

    @jessyrez:  I like the colours but you can tell they are fake but if that doesnt bug you then go for it. The arrangement of flowers is quite pretty. I’m getting fake real touch flowers and although I havnt gotten them yet from the picture (below) you cant even tell they are fake!!!
