I'm personally not a fan of silk flowers... since when do we expect flowers to last forever? Obviously this is a personal preference sort of thing, but when I got married (30 years ago)... I even threw my big bouquet when most people had gone to throwing a 'throw away' bouquet. I mean... just what do you want to save flowers for? To sit in a box in your basement forever?
I actually prefer receiving fresh cut flowers to plants... because they DO DIE!
