I am going with fake since it will be in for more than 9 hours!

@jackielemman Have you bought a flower yet? I like some of them on etsy, but I am afraid it won't look the way it does in the photo.

    I would use only real ones. They look much better and natural plus these days florists can make them last longer, they have ways

    Even though I haven't really put much thought into those details yet I think I may go with the fake flower.

    Fake. With the heat, real may wither quickly. You want it to last throughout the day.

    I think I'm going fake.  But I so agree with @jackielemman  I am worried it won't look the same in person as the Etsy picture (which, of course, always look fabulous).

    @blkladylaw - is there a way to search ebay by sellers? I'd really like to see what they have to offer. I haven't found exactly what I am looking for yet.

    get real touch flowers if possible.

     

    Afloral has some but I ordered my bouquet from bloom bridal in canada and they also offer extra flowers you can use for your hair

    Personally I haven't really looked into hairstyles for my wedding day, but I did know that I always wanted a flower in my hair.  I think I'd use fake flowers because they're going to look the same all day (not wilt).  Also they might be easier for the hair stylist to do my hair.  Also, I get to keep it as a keepsake afterwards.  But the Biggest reason for me is that hopefully no bees or other bugs will come near me if the flower is fake.

    I ordered a fake white orchid from amazon for a couple of dollars just to see how it would look, and I love it-

     

    My mother nearly kicked my can when she found out that I even thought about using fake flowers, but I'm still thinking about using it.

     

    Real flowers have a tendency to wilt throughout time- especially when they are right next to your face! (at least that is what I have been told)
