Hi everyone! I am wondering your opinions/thoughts on having artificial flowers for the bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquet. We're having a small wedding with only 75 guests--close friends and family. In our bridal party is just a maid of honor (my sister) and a best man (his brother).
I want to have artificial flowers for the bouquets but some of my family is giving me a hard time about it so I was wondering what others thought.
Our centerpieces are fresh flowers and the corsages and boutinerres will also be fresh flowers. I'm a shorter, smaller person so a big bouquet would look ridiculous with me. The artificial ones I picked up look like real gerbera daisies in white and dark pink--exactly as I wanted. And my roommate is putting the bouquets together because she's done it before. Her grandmother used to do it for a living and showed her how.
Be honest please!
