    I was about to ask this too. For me, my florist says its going to be the same price. So i don't know what to do. I'm going to follow this so i can see others opinions.

    I've actually decided to go with faux flowers...and I'm going to make the bouquets myself. My mother who remarried several years ago did hers and omg they were so beautiful that when I asked her about flowers for my upcoming wedding, she was the one who suggested I go with beautiful faux options and do it myself.

    The only reason why I was considering artificial flowers was because I can keep is as a keep sake’s for later.

    Thats what i was thinking but im not horder lol. I know it'll probably be left in some box and never seen again. I know they have showboxes for those, but i find those too big. I did find some picture frame where i can put all the real flowers. Just to have it hanging and see it everyday. Thats why i'm wondring if i should go real.

    We're doing half real half artificial. The only real flowers will be me and my bridemaids banquet. Everything else will be artificial

    Great minds think alike! I’m doing something similar. My “people flowers” as I call them (bouquets, boutonnières, and corsages) will be real and my decor flowers for the ceremony and reception will be artificial.

    I personally prefer real for the scent of them, but that’s also why some choose faux flowers, I am getting mine through Enjoy Flowers so it’s actually pretty cheap (1 bridal bouquet, 4 BM bouquets, 6 boutonnières, 2 pin on corsages, and 2 wrist corsages for a little under $500)

    I found her on etsy but she sells thru instagram and is located in the Maldives. You design it with her and she sends updates via photos and videos and changes things and adds things til its exactly what u want. It was an amazing and fun experience. Would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

    I’ve seen A LOT of artificial bouquets brides make themselves and majority of the time they look real!
