Hey hun, Real Touch flowers are actually "fake" flowers but they aren't silk they actually look and feel like the real thing..they are actually very popular for destination brides since down south in the heat and humidity real flowers tend to wilt very fast when in a bouquet out of water..so Real Touch Flowers are are great alternative and plus you can bring them home with you and will look just as gorgeous on your 25th wedding anniversary as they did on your wedding day since they last forever! Hope that helps!

Ok I have my real touch bouquets and was planning on carrying them on the plane with me.  Well my BM pointed out something today so now I need some advice from past brides who've done this.  My bouquets have straight pins in the stems for the ribbon....which I'm sure TSA would be big fans of.  So now I'm not sure what to do.

 

So did any of you carry on your bouquets like this and was it an issue.....or what's the other alternative. I'm scared to put them in our checked luggage!

I put all three real touch bouquets, complete with the straight pins decorations into one carry on suitcase. Went through security without any issues. We didn't have any questions on the way home either. I even had an extra box of the pins in the suitcase.

Who did you girls order your real touch flowers from??  My resort includes my bouquet but not my bridesmaids and I would really like to purchase the real touch ones!?  Just curious!! :)

I ordered real touch flowers from afloral.com and assembled them myself. At the last minute, I added some rhinestone stephanotis to the BM bouquets. And the day before our wedding I had the resort florist take apart my bouquet and add fuchsia roses.

I'm worried about the same thing.  Not only do the flowers have wires in them, I have straight pins holding my ribbon in place!!  I feel like with the crack downs with TSA, if you just get the wrong person, they may refuse it!  I'm not sure what I would do if they did??

 

I like the idea of putting it in the bottom of my dress garment bag though too.

 

 

Regardless...my aunt works with silk flowers and she said a little hairspray or spray starch and a hair dryer will help to get rid of wrinkles and help you place your pedals the way you want them if they get messed up during travel.

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
