I have been to Hobby Lobby, JoAnn Fabrics, Dollar Tree, and WalMart. I can not find flowers that I like for my bouquets anywhere, I do not have a Michaels by me, and I have tried making the ribbon flowers…but that was a fail.
Any suggestions would definitely help. I am not sure where else to shop for flowers without spending an obscene amount of money on real ones…..

Have you checked out real flower prices versus artifical flowers at a place like a flower market, Trader Joe’s or grocery store? In San Francisco we have a pretty large flower market where you can get a dozen roses for under $10 (and you get discounts for buying several dozen, it can also get cheaper when flowers are in season). Sometimes that works out to be cheaper… just a thought. Good luck on your search!

You could actually buy flowers for pretty cheap from fiftyflowers.com, that’s what I’m doing. I’m just arranging a few big stems in vases on each table – probably ranunculus or dahlias, or some kind of flowers that take up a lot of space.

Surprisingly enough, real flowers are actually alot cheaper than silks, unless you are getting something that is out of season or exotic (tropical flowers for a non=tropical climate, etc).

@Sassygrn: Thank you, I have checked out that site and the flowers that they offer are beautiful. I think that I may order from them. Another question that I have, is it neccessary for the bride to have a bigger bouquet then her bridesmaids or does it not really matter if they are all the same size???

@pinkinlove87: It does not matter in size no, for mine I did the bigger bouquet for myself and my Maid/Matron of Honor the Bridesmaid or Best Man and JR Bridesmaid or Best Man got the smaller ones.
