Hi! Real flowers or silk flowers?
Real. Silk flowers can't breakdown as easy and real flowers smell amazing. They also look a lot better too. It's a personal preference at the end of the day.
I had silk because I have allergies to pollen... last thing I wanted was streaming red eyes and sneezing through my vows. Additionally, I've been able to have my beautiful flowers as a keepsake.
It depends on your budget. I'm going for silk as I simply can't justify the price I've been quoted for for real flowers. I also would like my bridesmaids to keep their bouquets. Also my theme is starry night and I don't associate flowers with starry night so I am not really bothered about the flowers being a big thing on the day xx
I had silk and no one could believe they weren't real and had them bespoke made from a real bouquet I loved from The Floral Touch UK. I love that I can still look at them now and the cost was fantastic
I've gone for silk! Want to keep them forever. Also with silk you won't have bees and wasps etc chasing you down the isle, allergies and you can usually get the flowers you want any time of the year and don't pay more for out of season flowers.
Personally I'm going for real because I love the smell and feel of real flowers, but do what suits your budget
Decent silk flowers are often more expensive than real. And theres no beating the way a real petal flutters xx
I went for fake flowers so I could keep my bouquet 😊 a lot cheaper too, plus is was fun (if a little stressy) making them!
I went for silk and foam as i am anaphylactic to bees and wasps so didn't want to chance getting stung. Also i wanted to frame my bouquet after.
I am putting herbs in my flowers for a scent and got real flowers at my tables in my centre peices.
Def fake if ur on a budget. Got my bouquet from amazon
We're having fake flowers. They're cheaper and any one with hay-fever won't be suffering 😂😂
I'm going for paper as I have allergies but it's nice that I can design them and keep them afterwards
I love flowers , so we are having real
I'm having real flowers and then getting them preserved and framed x
Having real and then placing them on the grave of my partner's mum
I’m going silk, I love the wildflower look and delicate flowers can start to wilt after a long day, plus we can keep the silk ones as mementos and the ability to get them before the wedding instead of that morning means less stress 🙂 have a look at Silk Flower Art on google, they have some really real looking ones
I’m having silk, so I can keep them but also my fiancé has hay fever and we’re getting married Aug
I'm having real then placing them on my daughter's grave x
I had fake. Due to price and due to hay fever. I don’t regret it they look beautiful in my
I'm having a handmade bouquet and button holes made from pages from books. But i am having real flowers on the tables.
Real every time. Silk flowers have improved greatly but nothing beats the real thing! :-)
We hired silk flowers so I could have the flowers I wanted in October. Plus they set up and cleared up the next day so less for us to do haha
I’m having artificial (silk) flowers. I’m having 5 bouquets which im making myself with the MIL help and each one has been dedicated to be put on a loved ones grave once the wedding is finished. Each of my bridesmaids and flowers girls have chosen who gravestone there’s will be placed on and I’ve chosen my own too. I’ve also had 3 smaller bouquets made which are dedicated to people who unfortunately aren’t here with us to share our special day. There ashes have been scattered so there flowers will be given to their families to display at their choosing 🙂
Silk. They won’t get damaged throughout the day, and then after, you can either keep as a souvenir or sell them on..
We've gone for silk and can't wait to pick them up next week I know they will be beautiful and I'll get to keep them forever :)
We're having artificial flowers for a few reasons. Most importantly... me and my Fiancé have INSANE hayfever and any sort of real flowers make us sneeze! Aritifical (silk) are also much cheaper and we can keep them 😁
Fake and I cant wait to use them
I hoping to do both real on the table and then fake for my bridal party x
I’m going dried for ours but have accents of all
I recon I’m going for fake, then you can have whatever you want and don’t have to worry about price rises for flowers that are out of season and all that😊
Silk so you can keep them afterwards
Real all the way!
I've been learning to make paper ones for mine and my bridesmaids bouquets and button holes and will have real for some decorations
I’m getting silk so that I can keep them after! Also tends to be a better selection for colours I want at a better price xxx
I went for real as I love the smell and they just look so fresh & pretty I got quotes from a few different florists and ended up with a fantastic price!
Or foam or wooden, my cousin had wooden roses from ebay and they looked gorgeous, but where really inexpensive.
We had fake, they looked like real ones, & looked beautiful
Fake so I can keep them :)
I’m using both, bouquets real as better for environment but as I have hay fever fake for decorations
We are having real as my mother in law is very kindly doing them for us. We did look at artifical and there are some really reasonabiliy priced, good quality ones around xx
We had silk and they were gorgeous. Nobody could tell the difference
Check out Groovy Ruby. They have a Facebook page. Im getting my flowers from them, the samples I've had look so good.
No flowers? X
Ours are silk from sister sister bouquets.
I'm having silk . But only because were getting married in Greece. Not sure real would survive the flight lol . In all honesty o dont think it really matters just go with what you prefer x
I'm going silk and I'd like to sell them cheaply or gift them on afterwards. Mainly due to hayfever worries and because I like to think of things being reused x
Fake for me as it's cheaper and my family member is making it a year in advance without worrying about time frames or them dying. Can also keep after if I want to for memories 👍
If your budget is slim then maybe grow your own? Xx
Real. Silk and artificial, surprisingly, cost more.
And if you don’t know what to do with them, care home the next day? Or as a thank you gift for those who helped you
I don’t regret paying the extra for real flowers at all, if it’s affordable to you!
Dried mine out afterwards by hanging them upside-down and they still look gorgeous x
We have fresh flowers for a day 💐 cannot wait.
