** FAKE or REAL? **

I used to do a lot of flip-flopping between using real flowers or silks/real touch bouquets...I'm leaning more towards silks/real touch considering that fake flowers are looking pretty good nowadays.


Can you guess which bouquets are fake and which ones are real?  I normally can't tell unless I see the edge of the petals fraying or notice the glare of the camera flash bouncing off the fake green stems...kinda cool how far along they've come.  :)

I love the look of real touch plus you get to keep them forever.

Nope - the only one that's real is the orchid bouquet.  :)

I totally agree! Go for silk! Plus they can be keepsakes after or you can even resell your centerpieces and bouquets. Much easier to DIY too.

Im doing fake!  I just got them in from my etsy seller Wedding Clay Creations and they are SUPER light and look am-az-ing -- really, really detailed.  Pictures don't do justice to what I got in person:

Beautiful, right?!  I think I'm definitely gong with silk...and yes, Legentry - they'll last way longer aaaaaand I won't have to worry about bruising the petals, breaking the heads off, etc...


@girlnextdoor - Do you mean, smell as in having a "fake" smell?  My BFF recently bought silks and they smell...synthetic.  If mine end up smelling really fake, I'm just going to spray them with a scent that won't stain the flowers, or maybe wrap some lavender seeds in a pouch and tuck them into the handle...  ;)

pretty! Aparker those are gorgeous! The only reason I didn't want fake was because I didn't know what to do with them later and didn't want to hassle with reselling them. I was going to do bulk flowers from the grocery store and DIY, but flowers weren't big for me so it wasn't going to be anything complicated
