    I am thinking of getting realtouch flowers for myself and for my FI's bout. I will have to ask the hotel how much real flowers will be for the BMs and other bouts & corsages.

    I want to be able to use my bouquet at my TTD and AHR, so fake is probably the way to go for that instead of buying 3 bouquets.

      You all have totally convinced me into more research into real touch bouquets!

          I am doing fake flowers for the exact reasons you mentioned. I really would rather have real ones, but I can't justify $310 vs $35

            I will be going with Fake flowers. Because I am getting married on a ship I will not be allowed to take real flowers on or off the ship. I am okay with that because I have been looking and they are just as beautiful as the real ones.

            I do agree with another poster that flowers can be a waste of money because they do not last long. But to each her own!

              I did real touch flowers for everything. I packed everything in a hard-case suitcase, wrapped in their original shipping paper and cardboard. They arrived OK. I only kept my bouquet with me as a carry-on. It ended up much less expensive than doing real flowers and I got exactly what I wanted.

              My bouquet looked so real than when I arrived at the hotel, the staff wanted to put it in water real bad ! It gave me a good laugh

                  I think I am going to go the real touch fake flowers route, I am little worried about them wilting with the heat and humidity. Did anyone have an issue with that? Also I am debating between having them made or going to Michael's and doing it with a lady there.

                      Right now I am leaning towards real touch flowers. I would LOVE to have fresh flowers, but it's hard to justify so much money for flowers, that may not even be exactly what I want, and that I can't even bring back home with me. But I haven't seen the flower options yet from the resort, so I'm holding off until then. But they are going to have some fabulous flowers at a really good price for me to change my mind, lol.
