    Sooo funny, the lady here in Canada used identical pictures and said they were her work. I mean exactly the same, all the bouquets. Which one actually did those flowers, or are those just standard pics everyone uses

      So your lady uses the same photos as Sharon on ebay? That is odd. Hmmm...there have been girls on here to use Sharon though, so maybe they work together??

        One is in New York and the other in Alberta Canada. I can't see them working together.

              Ooh, I've just started to think about flowers and am having the same debate - real vs. artificial. Thanks for posting some ballpark cost estimates for us!

                I think that is the one question that people could argue forever! I've decorated so many weddings and have seen so many different types of flowers. Personally, if I could do it all again myself, I'd go with artificial. For example...I just decorated a couple of weeks ago and watched the bride cry her eyes out because the place that did her flowers totally screwed them up. Colors were all wrong...it looked like the bouquet had been drop-kicked or something. I think with artificial, you are at least able to have them EXACTLY what you want. And they'll look just as perfect all day and night long!

                When I got married, the quality of artificial flowers wasn't like it is now....I met with a lady that did silk bouquets. They were the ugliest things I'd ever seen. I went with real flowers...but they also weren't exactly what I wanted. Real flowers are great...but I think if you want to make sure everything is perfect for your big day, artificial is the way to go.

                Good luck in choosing....looks like alot of ladies on here have some good advice to share to help you choose!

                  Thanks Crystal! That does clear it up! I'll let everyone know about the flowers when they're done. I can't wait to see them!

                    Sure, she's located in Drayton Valley I think that's about an hour south of Edmonton. I haven't seen them in person yet, so I will post pictures when I get them, and I'll let you know if they are as beautiful as the pictures on the website. She's actually a member on BDW now she posted a few replys back actually! She's very nice and so helpful, her website is Bitter Sweet Wedding Designs |
