I’m having fresh..... I know they don’t last but I personally think they have the edge on silk and they actually smell of flowers!,

I'm having real one as I have a winter wedding so would like the smell they provide. Also, I'm going to put my bouquet on my dad's grave who unfortunately passed 2 years ago. X

I had real ones, i found them to be cheaper than silk or other false options. I was inundated with flowers after the day 😂
Everyone loved my bouquet xx

I’m having artificial. My MoH (and depending on the flower I) suffer from hay fever so didn’t fancy sneezing my way down the isle

I’m having silk as we are getting married in November so not much in season and it was a lot cheaper.

I considered silk but have been informed by 'the boss' that i am having real. He works as an undertaker and has a deep loathing for fake flowers.

I made mine with felt and my bridesmaids were artificial which I bought from Simpsons and put together myself. I was quite chuffed with the results.

I had artificial as my partner is allergic to real, but I wouldn’t have changed them as now I get to look at them everyday in my lounge which I love x

If anyone is avoiding fresh flowers because they'd like to keep them, please contact Resin Artists such as myself to preserve them for you Senmeisa - please excuse my page being built, but I'm awaiting my official launch date xx

I had real ones. You simply cannot replicate the smell of real flowers with fake ones.

I would like a real bouquet for me and silk for everything else unless I can get a good deal on real. Real die, silk is forever and can be resold too
