What kind of flowers? Real, faux, sola, or paper?

What kind of flowers are you using? Are you sticking with fresh flowers? Or are you going the artificial route with faux, sola, or paper?

    I am allergic to most flowers so I believe our bouquets will be sola and faux for the decor

    Real! We debated for a long time, and even bought some faux flowers, but ultimately decided on real!

    Real!!! I only needed a bridal bouquet (no wedding party, candles as our centerpieces). Real flowers all the way!

    We'll be having faux flowers! So much cheaper, I can get things made and put together ahead of time, and I can keep them if I want!

    Doing real. Flowers were not something I thought I cared about before getting engaged and actually planning, but apparently they are lol.

    I guess I may be the different one in the pack, but we're having a mixture of real and faux (real touch) flowers.

    Our centerpieces will be fresh flowers and the wedding party flowers will be sola wood bouquets.

    We're doing a mixture of real and faux! Budget wise I didn't see having all real flowers to be much of a priority for me lol

    That's a really good idea!! Faux flowers look so much better than they did years ago, you honestly can't tell the difference!

    I agree!! And the faux flowers photograph well in pictures nowadays. So mixing both types of flowers will be a clever thing that people really couldn't tell the difference between anyway.

    We are going with real for the simple fact that the centerpieces are included in the venue. Otherwise, I would have gone with the cheapest option lol

    I used fresh/real plants in all of our pieces. We incorporated succulents, blush roses, and a variety of different greenery pieces. I loved having real plants, not only did they look gorgeous, but they smelled sooooo heavenly!

    We’re going origami to fit in with our Tolkien middle earth theme and because it’s ridiculously cheaper

    flowers will be made from pages from Tolkien’s Middle Earth legendarium

    im doing roses for reception and Callalilies for ceremony

    probably 2/3 of lilies tinted blue to go with navy decor

    And maybe pumpkins for shire table
