Hey ladies! I have to use silk flowers b/c of a) heat in Missouri in June and b) serious allergies. I’m worried they’re going to look sorta chintzy and I’m trying to see if anybody has a good place they can recommend that sells good ones and also if there are any tips on how to personalize each bridesmaids’ bouquets? I want to make them myself, and I’m already aware of Michael’s, Joann’s, GardenRidge…Thanks!

Check out etsy! I’m working with a great vendor (although I haven’t seen the finished product). Her name is <span style=”font-weight: bold”>detailsbyjlynn and she’s awesome!

Angel’s Accents comes highly recommended from alot of girls on theknot.com, I ordered from them because I’m having a Destination Wedding and it’s saving me over $400 from the quote I got from florists. I won’t get mine until February but their website has tons of photos of their work from other brides, hope that helps!

I don’t know whether I should be commenting on this, but I make clay flowers. They might be a good alternative to fresh flowers in case of a situation like yours. Really don’t want to promote my work or anything, but just wanted to let you know that there is this option.

Don’t know if this helps, but my sister used silk flowers and as long as you pick QUALITY flowers (not from a dollar store or discount bin) nobody will know unless they shove their face into your centerpiece. The only people who knew we used silk were the bridesmaids (because she used silk for the bouquets), my mom (because she did all the arrangements), and the bride. Everyone else was VERY impressed and the flowers look realistic in the pictures.
I would say as long as you go for quality (and realistic coloring on the blooms) then don’t worry about them looking chintzy.
