    I never thought about fake flowers until I started reading about them here. Are they nice? Do they smell, is that a dumb question. Are they heavy?

        This is a good question. I just ordered real touch flowers for my bridesmaids because the bouquets at my resorts are so overpriced. If you don't get a response, I'll be sure to let you know how mine turn out!

          I'd love to know too! I am thinking about them for my bridesmaids bouquets!

            I used a real touch bouquet for my flowers, my bridesmaids and the mother's corsages. I would say the weight was on par with real flowers or a little lighter. No, they did not smell. They looked great and I was thrilled with my decision. I have my bridal bouquet sitting on the dresser in our bedroom (the colors match perfectly - by fluke). My photographers thought they were real, and my MIL thought it was real.

              The more and more I read about these "real touch" flowers the more and more I want them!!! I mean what would I do with a real bouquet? I could enjoy it for 1.5 days and then it would die.
              Why not have something that lasts forever!!?

              Oh decisions..decisions..decisions!!! :-)

                The florist we booked for our artificial flowers said that we could have the bouquets and flowers scented if we wanted so that is an option. She said she leaves them unscented for people with allergies though. We're using a company in the Michigan called Something Spectacular. A friend in NY used the same company for her wedding a few months ago and they looked so real that we didn't even know they weren't until she gave me her bouquet to hold and I noticed that the stems weren't wet and slimey. From what I remember, her bouquet was pretty large but it didn't seem heavy.

                Hope that helps. I'm new here and just starting to plan a small wedding in Arizona. We have only booked our hotel and florist so far so I can only comment on those things until I have experience with more.

                  No, my flowers didn't smell. They were lighter than a real bouquet, but this probably depends on your flower choice. Roses are heavy! LOL

                  Everyone thought they were real. I loved having them because they didn't wilt in the heat or turn brown and crusty. I have my bouquet and a BM bouquet on a shelf in my office on each side of our wedding picture.

                  They were really easy to transport. I wrapped them in bubble wrap and tissue paper. They fluffed right up!

                    My FI is still on the fence with having "real touch" flowers. I think he thinks they are the old "silk" kind and that they will look terrible!

                    I want these flowers so bad!

                      Wow.. I love the idea. I am concerned a bit about adding another item to trasport. Are they indestructable??
