    My friend's bouquets were made in Michigan and shipped to her in NYC and they didn't look damaged in any way. We're using the same florist that she did, and although they are located only about a 4 hour drive from us, I'm going to have them shipped to us. Although I have been thinking that I might have them shipped directly to the hotel in Arizona where we'll be staying so we don't have to pack them and take them on the plane.

    I'll call my friend over the weekend and ask her some more questions about how her flowers were shipped. I assume they were probably just shipped in a box with some packing material.

      Do you know the name of this florist? I live in Michigan and have yet to order my "real touch" flowers.

      Thanks!

        Hi Erica. We booked the same florist as my friend right after seeing how realistic and well-made her bouquets and other flowers were at her wedding. We actually hired them even before we decided for certain on our wedding location because we knew we wanted to book them before our date was already taken.

        It's Something Spectacular and their website is SomethingSpectacular.com. I can't remember the exact city they are located in but it's in the Detroit area and when I initially looked it up on Mapquest, it's about a 4 hour drive from the Columbus area where we live. I'd post a photo of the bouquet that I think I want them to design for my bridal bouquet but I'm not sure how to post a photo here. Is there a way to post photos from Facebook or another photo site?

          Okay, thanks for the info. I'll check them out!

          Actually you have to have 150 posts in order to post pictures on here. I still have more posts to go before I can post pictures. They suggest using photobucket. Not sure how it works though.

          Good Luck!

            Hey girls. I got my gerber daisies in from flowers-by-design.com and they look great. Once I put them together in a bouquet I'll post a picture. I'm going to use them for my bridesmaids and have gerber daisies be put in my bouquet to match. My resort is charging 150 each for real bouquets for my bridesmaid and i spent $40 on the flowers from flowers-by-design saving me $260!

              Hi Ladies

              I specialize in fresh floral design but I started working with Floramatique / real Touch flowers for destination brides for the past 2 years and the quality is amazing....they feel and look real.

              They are made of a special kind of latex and they're so soft and they look incredible.

              They are very durable, however, there is a warning on the box not to have them exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time - i.e. leaving them in a window everyday for a long time....they will get discoloured. Othey than that they are light, real looking, no smell to them, very durable and FABULOUS!

              If you have any questions please feel free to ask me.

                  Hi Ladies,
                  I puchased real touch flowers from Michaels Craft store here in Canada. Last weekend I did the DIY bouquet.
