        I didn't see the online silk florist we booked listed in the post so I thought I'd add the info here in case anyone is interested. We're using:

        Something Spectacular in the Detroit, Michigan area. Their website is Something Spectacular high quality silk bridal bouquets and fresh wedding flowers

        I've been very pleased and impressed with them so far and a friend in NYC used them for her wedding flowers earlier this year and raved about them. From personal experience I can attest that her flowers looked and smelled just like fresh flowers and the only way I found out they weren't real was she gave me her bouquet to hold and the stems weren't wet. I contacted and booked them for our flowers right after we returned home from the wedding trip.

        Our order is going to be small and our date was still available when I booked so it wasn't an issue for us but their designs have been published in wedding books and magazines so they're popular and my friend in NY who used them told me you have to book them a year or more in advance. Our designer did tell me though that they can sometimes fit in small orders even if the date is already booked so that may help other brides having small weddings.

              So do alot of destination brides go with silk? I found a tropical destination package on Etsy that I love...but thought that real flowers would be so much nicer.

              I guess the best thing to do is email the coordinator with what I want and see if they could do it in real flowers right? Any advice on this would be helpful!

              Thanks for the great info! Rebecca
