To Bridal Blooms By Laura, scare tactics are a crappy way to drum up business.

You are from Toronto, so I know you have heard of Bonnie Gordon and I took lessons from her, I would think she would have had an instance or 2 in her many years as a cake decorator of where someone got sick from real flowers and would have steered us away from them, but she made no mention of this and would have for sure if it was an issue.

I think if you are concerned about it being dirty or whatever....I would wrap the stems with saran wrap....I've done that before. Quite frankly, if you've ever seen the inside of some of the silk stems, you would be more concerned about those than real flowers!!

it would seem to me that most reputable vendors are in the business of having happy clients and wouldn't jepordize their businesses if this was such a bad idea - it is one of the most commonly seen things at weddings (regular and DW)

An if you read my post correctly, I posted a link to flowers who are considered edible. I was just stating my practice that I will not insert fresh flowers in a cake...
I am a reputable vendor and I do quite well in my business thank you. I don't need to use scare tactics to gain customers....that's a pretty harsh accusation to make.
