    they are real flowers, and they are awesome! They look and feel real and they are really pretty. Totally worth the money in my opinion. I got 3 boxes (30 in each I think it was) and I used them on all of my tables. I didnt have enough left for my aisle, but I think that would look AWESOME!!!

        Great ideas! I came across the preserved flowers on one of the sites and I was really curious about them... now I'll have to check that out.

          I was looking into buying the preserved flowers from save-on-crafts for my centerpieces. Once you get them what are the care for them, do you need to keep them in a cool place up until the wedding? Any information would be awesome!!

            I'm planning on ordering freeze dried petals for my isle. I found a seller on E-Bay, now I have to compare prices.

              Are you allowed to enter the dominican republic with that? Won't there be a customs issue? If not then that's an amazing idea and i'm all over it!!

                Well that was originally my questions because I wasn't sure if you could bring them either but I'm gonna trust all the girls who have done it before me and order some for my aisle. :)
                Thanks to all the ladies that put my mind at ease.

                  I asked my WC and she said I wouldn't have a problem.

                    How many cups are you girls ordering for your aisle? These are pretty expensive so I don't want to order more than what I need. Do you people just do enough for a scattered effect or for moderate coverage?

                      Great ideas! I was originally going to buy plastic ones for my centrepieces but now I am going to check out these preserved ones.
