      I really like the idea of fake flowers. I was planning on staying with flowers that are native to CR. I found these great orchids that really deceive the eye. I really like the idea of putting them on the cake. It makes the cake look fresher.
      Don't get me wrong or anything, I love fresh flowers, but I want to save money. We shall see. You all were such a great help! Thanks!

      I think my friend who is making my cake told me that some flowers cannot be put on cakes, so fake flowers might be your only option. I know I am using calla lilies and those are not okay on food so we have to use fake flowers for the cake anyway.

        I'm very pro-fake flowers for some things. I used them in my larger arrangements at the church - they're so far away from the people, they can't tell the difference and those large arrangements are expensive! Also I think they're great for the tables like Jessalyn (?) is using. Serisouly why spend all that $$ on orchids that are going to wilt?!

        But I used real flowers for my bouquets and my BM's bouquets, corsages etc. I LOVED having the real flowers for my bouquet....they smelled amazing.

        All that being said, I think my friend is going to use real flowers for her bouquet - it's included in her wedding package anyway, no sense buying anything extra. But she's thinking of using fake ones for the BM/MOH bouquets and her hair. It's definitely a money saver.

        Also, I remember someone posting a GREAT site for fake flowers on here somewhere....I'll see if I can find it. The pics on the site were really pretty and I was very impressed with the bouquets. I'll post that as soon as I locate it!

          Great! I would love to see some pics of fake flower bouquets. I need to see what my mother thinks. Not that she has the final say, but I want to hear what she thinks. For sure fake flowers are going in my hair. I want the fresh flower look to last all day.

                  I'm so sorry it took me ages to do this! I didn't actually find the post this was originally on, but here's the link to the site.

                  Again, sorry for being such a slacker!

                    So I have opted for a fake flower bouquet. When I was trying to put the bouquet together the other night it didn’t look nice. The flowers looked real, but I felt silly holding the bouquet. I guess I am going to shell out the extra bucks for a real bouquet.
