    Wow @MarryingMurray it looks beautiful. I am getting it from ebay and the dollar store. Not too much but sufficient enough

    The bridesmaid bouquets were from michaels ($6) and I added brooches.

    my bouquet was 1/2 from hobby lobby ($20) with one of the bridesmaid bunches added.

    All of my centerpieces are roses from the dollar store turned into kissing balls that perch on top of candlesticks.

    One way to get real flowers at a decent price for centerpieces is to use potted orchids. You can often buy them at Ikea, Home Depot or Lowes for $10.

    @marryinMurray I would love to see what your centerpieces look like. I have been trying to decide on fake or real flowers. Your bouquets are beautiful

    We are using real touch flowers from Hobby Lobby. 2 hydrangeas and 2 calla lilies in each bunch.

    I'm having real flowers for my bouquet and BP as well. Everything else will be fake flowers. My aunt offered to buy all the flowers and do the decorations so why waste more money. So far I love how it's turning out.

    I ended up doing fake flowers only because I could not allow myself to spend money on real centerpieces that were just going to die a few days/ weeks later. I couldn't find the particular ones that I wanted when I started looking but I did find a coral gerber daisy bouquet already made at Hobby Lobby. They were $10 but every other week they were on sale for half off so they only ended up being $5 a piece. I still don't know what I will do with all of them left over but at least they won't die.

    I like how you can put fake flowers together ahead of time but I am actually using real flowers because you can get them for similar prices if you buy in bulk. The fake flowers that "look and feel real" are not actually cheaper unless you find them on sale!

    Mine are artificial as well. I bought them from an Etsy seller.

    I'm using fake and only one box of carnations has arrived so far. I'm using fake for everything. On Friday I'm going to go to my mom's and put everything together

    I refuse to spend the money on real flowers that are just going to die within a few days. All of my flowers are going to be fake
