I am gonna tag on to the Flowers post...

I have been tossing this idea back and forth for awhile now... How many of your are using real flowers, fake flowers, or something different? If you don't mind me asking why?Laughing Hopefully I can decide on what to use FI doesn't care too much for this part lol....

Re: I am gonna tag on to the Flowers post...

  • I'm using real flowers, because there is just nothing like beautiful real flowers. Although the silk ones can look pretty close to real, they just lack a little something for me, so real flowers it is. Plus, they small amazingggg! =)
  • I'm doing real for a couple of reasons. First, my mom has been gardening all my life and would possibly kill me if I didn't use real flowers. She'd find the money somewhere if that was my hold up. Second, I'm definitely not as much a green thumb, but I have an appreciation for them, especially the smell and the feel, which is lacking with silk. Lastly, I'm not planning on getting a lot of flowers, so it isn't breaking my budget.

  • Were doing real! At first we weren't going to really do too many flowers by my god they just make everything so beautiful!
  • we are doing real flowers. i absolutely love my florist and i love real flowers
  • I guess I am one of the few. I have said it a couple times though. We are doing fake. One because its the least of my concerns honestly. I honestly didnt even include flowers in my budget. Just paying for them as it goes along and its not much at all. Also because FI has horrible allergies.

  • We're doing real flowers.  I think they are so beautiful.  If I werent' going to do flowers, I think I'd try and just avoid the flower situation altogether instead of doing fake ones.  Silk flowers also just lack something for me.

  • I'm using fake. I've put together the bouquets, (loosely) and people barely notice the difference if at all. I think real are pretty but I spent 200 on ALL my flowers, mine (3 BMs, a JBM and the centerpieces.) The only real flowers we're going to do are the boutonniere, because I can't make them look "real" enough. But the flowers for everything else look just as good as if they were real. It would be 600 for just bouquet alone. Centerpieces as well? Sheww.

  • I'm doing fake for a few reasons. I'm just not big on flowers in general, plus I can't justify spending hundreds of dollars on something that will either just get donated or wilt the day after.

  • We're doing real ... originally I wanted fake but fmil said she did that and regretted it. After getting Fi opinion he wants real as well and so does my side of the family so real it is. We have a small budget for flowers and only need for the bridal party I hope it doesn't break the bank.

    We're having real flowers.  I like the way they look and smell better than any other option.

  • We are BIG gardeners so I am growing the flowers for the boquets. Risky, I know but we have approx 100 calla lily plants and it will mean more to me to have grown 2 or 3 for each girl to carry than to buy big boquets meaningless flowers.
    Boutineers will be made of fabric, but I cant show you because pinterest wont load.. But they will double as a hair pin for the guys lady or daughter afterwards.
    Then for centerpieces and etc I am doing live plants, they can be done ahead of time and annuals are very inexpensive!

  • I just finished my fake flowers. We decided fake for 2 reasons, one being we are both looking forward to breathing on our weddng day and we are pushing our luck with an outdoor ceremony, the other is because of costs. I got all my flowers for about 100 i love micheals coupons plus, since I made a toss away, I will be able to keep, Mine forever
