    @hunnybee123:  I think those silk flowers are gorgeous and I’ll probably end up going the silk flower route for my own wedding. I don’t think they’d look out of place, as long as they’re high quality and don’t have frayed edges or anything like that. I bet so few people would even notice that they’re silk and not fresh anyway.

    @hunnybee123:  I think ordering one and seeing how you like it is a great idea! And re-selling is a big pro of going with silk flowers too!

    I can’t believe that second picture is silk! I think if you go good quality, silk flowers are fine. 

    I agree with  @CarolinaCola, most people wont notice.

    Again, it might be nice to order some and do a mock-up, or at least order a sampling before you decide. I ordered some flowers off http://www.afloral.com to use for the centerpiecese (submerged calla lilies and stephanotis) and I think they’re going to be fantastic. I doubt most people will really notice.

    I agree that a mock up will give you the best idea of what they will look like but honestly, if you’re using higher quality silks, I think they’ll look great! The second picture really is fantastic!

    Good luck!

    Your first pics and your third are beautiful!  We are doing fake flowers for the advantages of time and price. Also, there aren’t many fresh choices in WI in late September. I did all ours for around $50 and there were A LOT. ( I shopped sales)  Plus I wanted to design my own flowers.  Our colors are copper, sage green and ivory with the girls in black dresses.
