We are planning to do our flowers ourselves; from bouquets to aisle markers. I can not decide if real would be better than fake or should I do both. Yes, you can save so of the fake flowers forever, but I would love my guests to be able to smell the aroma from the real flowers. Our wedding is outdoors, in the country, and simple. We are decorating with hay bales, pumpkins, and mums. If everything else is real, shouldn't the flowers be real too?
