    I'm considering ordering Real Touch bouquets and centerpieces for our wedding in May 2011.  I have seen some beautiful arrangements on this forum, but I'm still nervous about "fake" flowers.   Has anyone regretted their decision to use Real Touch?  Thanks in advance!

      I used real touch for me & my MOH's bouquets & for DH's & his BM's bouts. I have absolutely no regrets at all & would go the same route if I had to do it over again.

      No one knew that they were fake unless I told them, the quality was great & they even smelled real! At the time, I was not impressed with the resorts florist & their pricing was a bit much so this made my decision easier in terms of going with real touch.

       

      I also love being able to look at my bouquet anytime, since I was able to bring it home. Right now its in a vase but I plan on putting it in a shadow box soon.

        as long as you purchase them from a good supplier you should have no worries.  I know when you here fake flowers often you think of tacky dollar store flowers but silk flowers are actually beautiful  and look and feel real.  My bouquet is real touch and they are perfect!  :)

          Justustwo, where did you get your bouquest.  I am on the fence!  My colors are teal and purple.  I love that your bouquet has so many colors in it.  My favorite color is orange and I want to integrate that as well!

            I got mine from a vendor who no longer does business on BDW. However, there are many vendors mentioned on BDW who provide excellent, quality bouquets. There is a thread around somewhere, where there are reviews for the vendors that have been used, along with lots of pictures.

             

            Once you find a vendor & place your order, most vendors send you a proof of the bouquet before it is shipped to you. Definitely make sure that you get a proof so that you don't end up disappointed when the bouquet arrives. Also, some vendors are booked well in advance & don't take orders past a certain date so you may have to place your order at least 6 months in advance.
