Artificial flowers - yes or no?

Can anyone recommend a good supplier of artificial flowers? Im toying with idea of artificial flowers instead of real ones. Has anyone used artificial flowers or planning to use them? Any tips or advice? Is it a bad idea to use artificial ones? Thanks

You if want to go a whole different direction you could always op for paper flowers from arloarts, they do loads of different styles and use different paper, from normal to comic books. It's just an idea and I'm planning of doing this... something different

Mine were made by my MIL ordered all supplies from ebay but you can buy artificial bouquet done already off ebay and all sorts of floral arrangements. And at least you don't have to worry about getting them preserved after which you would if fresh and wanted to keep them. You can keep regardless unless you hired of course

I had artificial flowers, did them myself with the help from some of my bridesmaids. They are still on display in my house nearly a year later!
