    I’ve seen them several times at events but honestly they don’t look good and unless you’re going super cheap they cost almost the same as the real ones

    We're using fake flowers from Michaels and JoAnns for our centerpieces. We also plan on using fake flowers for our bouquets and stuff but we haven't made a solid plan. I dislike when some more traditionalist say fake flowers are tacky. Nowadays the ones that are made look real! And you can buy them in advance when stuff is on sale. (I.E. we got probably $100 worth of flowers for $25 during JoAnns mega 70% off sale).

    I made these from Michaels flowers and will have fresh flowers from a florist for centerpieces and corsages. Have fun! It was cheaper and loved doing them. And they won’t die!!

    We bought faux willow garlands from tableclothfactory.com, and plan to intersperse real garden (big, overblown size) roses along it. The 36 roses are being ordered from fabulousflorals.com for under $100. We're having a very small wedding, and we don't really see the need to spend big on something that will be gone in a couple of weeks. The garlands are something we'll definitely reuse, so that made sense to us. It will be really nice to have that real roses smell there, though!

    I'm doing fake flowers for my bridesmaids bouquet and they love them and can't believe I make them myself.

    I am doing fake flowers at my wedding. I personally dislike real flowers and feel that it would be an expensive waste of my money!

    I’m doing only fake flowers at mine! Luckily, fake flowers recently look so similar to real ones that people would hardly tell a difference!!

    Using fake! Something borrowed blooms. INCREDIBLE! My best friend used them at hers and you couldn’t even tell unless you knew! 1/2 the cost of not more of regular flowers!

    All my flowers are fake. I honestly would rather spend money on silks that really mainly because you will be spending a lot for real flowers and they potentially could start wilting or fall apart during the wedding or during photos. I want something that I could make in advance that I knew could hold up and still be intact when the wedding arrives. Plus now I have beautiful decor I can put in my house afterwards.

    My mom does fake flowers for many people’s weddings and she works at hobby lobby. They always look beautiful and I never considered anything else for my own wedding!

    I originally wanted real flowers, but because of covid leaving a constant lingering possibility of having to postpone I just didn't feel ok spending and therefore wasting $400 on flowers. I found these sunflowers in the style of the Van Gogh painting and fell in love.
    They look very real, including the stems, and have a good feel to them.
    I'm completely happy with these and I'm really excited to use them and be able to keep them forever. Smiley smileFake Flowers? 8

    I think fake flowers are fine. I’m gonna have a flower thing in my hair and it probably won’t brewed flowers. Nobody will know.

    I’m planning on doing fake flowers. But I haven’t decided yet if I want to use sola wood or ling’s moments. I’m also not planning on using a huge amount of flowers.

    A lot of "fake" flowers are silk flowers. look and feel real if they are not the cheap versions. I think they are great especially when possibly dealing with bridal party and guests that may have allergies to real flowers. but as the bride as long as mine are real I would be open to it. I would say you have them show you samples so you can decide.

    I’m back and forth. I found a florist who will do my design with real flowers for slightly more than fake. I’m weighing cost and what to do with the fake flowers afterwards. I’m not one who likes clutter.

    I’m ordering sola wood flower bouquets, corsages, boutonnières, and memorial lay downs from SouthernBloomsCo. That way we’ll be able to keep them for years to come Smiley smile I’d rather spend the money on something I can keep rather than real flowers that are going to die in a week anyway
