Faux Flowers For Ceremony/reception/centerpieces

Recommended Posts

I've always been a fan of faux flowers, and I'm so excited to see that brides are now incorporating them into their weddings!!!!

 

I am planning on making my bouquet, with some fresh flowers (kidding) from Michaels!! I am also intending on getting some for the centerpieces!

I cannot for the life of me, wrap my head around spending over $100 on flowers, when there are flowers EVERYWHERE!!! 

 

If any brides can post centerpieces they had using, real touch/fake flowers, please do so!! I need inspiration!!!  

 

I am attempting to make my reception either a smooth succulent and mellow color... or straight Mexico, I want mexican blankets for the table cloths and bright colored flowers for centerpieces.  I think tin cans are an AMAZING idea, since they are durable, able to travel, and I'm sure I can go to my nearest mexican market and buy plenty for under $20.  I've also seen some great ideas on pinterest.  Spray painting them, hole punching to make pretty table lanterns, or wrapping them in twine or lace.

I am planning on using faux flowers that I got at Winners this past summer for my centerpieces. We are getting married in Cuba and they don't have a great selection. You kind of just end up with whatever they have available. So I wanted to add colour to my tables and knew coral flowers would be difficult to get in Cuba. I will be using the wedding bouquet that is provided by the resort and will just select white calla lilies or regular lilies whatever they have available and then wrap the bouquets with coral ribbon and burlap!

That was a super quick mock up of what my centerpieces will look like.. they'll be better then that once its totally done.

You can also get wooden roses online for very cheap. They are just as beautiful as real flowers but are made of wood instead. I bought some from the site below for around $0.20 each and they were a huge hit.

That's a very cool idea!

These center pieces are awesome! i am really considering the fake flowers.. but i heard some of my friends (who might be invited to my wedding *past brides*) that to have fake flowers is tacky :( .... im really against spending the ridiculous amount of money the hotel vendor wants to charge me :(

I think it used to be tacky because they didn't have great options, but now a days you can get faux flowers that are real looking. Plus this is your day not theirs! If you don't want to spend the money on flowers and won't care if you have real or fake flowers then what is it to them?

 

The flowers I got are great! In Cuba its very hard to get the flowers you really want and I had a certain look in mind and was able to achieve this using the faux flowers whereas had I gone with what is available in Cuba I wouldn't have been able to achieve this look. I'd rather go with I want on my day then care about what others would think. At the end of the day its your wedding day and you need to be happy with how it was... others aren't invested in your wedding like you are!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • 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.
