        Those look fine but check out Hobby Lobby. I'm pretty sure they have locations around Texas. Well at least San Antonio if you're near! There plastic variety looked a little more realistic.

        Also, the bouquet shows cymbidium orchids and most of the pics that you took were of the (sp?) phalaenopsis orchid. Does it matter to you?

          i posted this on another thread but you may want to check this company out. It may be within your budget to go fresh... But you do have to buy in bulk..

            Merryme, I contacted them a while ago but they never got back

            I contected DAYSA around the same time.

            They contacted me, but I let them know that I was not sure what i wanted at that time and would contact them later. Apparently I'm on their mailing list because they sent me a V-Day card today :)

              Thanx a lot for the links!!! do you know the prices yet'


              I don't need a lot.. 'cause I'm using roses and I'm buying those there.. I'd like to buy around 100 orchids maybe.. do you think they sell that quantity?

                Anny, I dont have any prices. I only asked if they would sell wholesale to me for my wedding. (I wasn't sure if they were only commercial vendors).

                But here is the contact person: Lorenia Femat <lfemat@daysa.com.mx>

                    I just found out we have a Hobby Lobby here!! (I live in the border with Mcallen)
                    I'll definitely check it out!!

                    About the cymbidiums it does matter to me but the cymbidiums I've found look faker (is that a word?) than the phalenopsis.. that's why I kept looking for phals.. here's the best cymbidium I've found:

                      Ok I am not crazy aobut the option. It's a little too rosey on the inside. Definately try Hobby Lobby and tell me what you think.

                      Either orchid you choose will look fabulous with that bouquet.
