I wanted to see if any of you have or plan to use silk flowers for your reception centerpieces and decor. If so,
- Where did you all order them from?
- Pricing – how much did you pay?
- Show me your pics!!
I’d love to see your ideas of how you used the flowers and what your centerpieces ended up looking like.

I don’t have pics yet because I just got mine all in the mail and started putting them together but I ordered from http://www.efavormart.com. I ordered a variety of flowers: carnations, amaryllis, eastern lily, dahlia and extra touch craft carnations. A lot of the flowers came kind of wrinkled/crumpled 🙁 but the dahlia’s and the carnations all looked great!! I actually ordered a second round of carnations and dahlias because they shipped so well and were actually more what I was looking for. I think because the other flowers were bigger they didn’t ship as well. I got 252 carnations for $25 and 56 dahlias for $30 (the dahlias are much much bigger than the carnations).
So, I would recommend them for carnations and dahlias but not for the other flowers. The prices were great, things shipped fast and the colors are well represented on the website, I was worried because I ordered many different shades of purple but they are almost identical to the colors pictured. They also have sales and coupons which are great! 🙂

@jennifer.grayson.547: I did my own centerpieces (with lots of help from my mom and one of my bridesmaids) with real roses from Sam’s Club. They only cost $105 for 125 stems and we had plenty for centerpieces, 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets, and my bouquet. If you add in another $10 for ribbon and floral tape to wrap the bouquets, 79 cents per bucket for 10 centerpieces and $3 for floral foam to place in the buckets to hold the flowers, I was under $125 for my flowers.
My bouquet before the wedding.
One of the centerpieces complete.
My bouquet and centerpieces two days after the wedding. Still beautiful!
