Hi. I get married next year in August, outside. I really don't want real flowers at my wedding, mainly because they cost a fortune and will just die a few days later. I was originally thinking of having a wedding in October (indoors), so I could have my bridesmaids come down the aisle with light up, but real wax candles. Now due to the season and venue change being outside, the candles wouldn't have the same effect. Has anyone used fake flowers for their wedding? And any recommendations on where to get them from? Or, another option what my bridesmaids could possibly hold walking down the asile? Looking for inspiration ????
I used fake flowers like foam texture looked lovely
I got my fake flowers from enchanted flowers - Tracy is fab and brilliant reviews
I have fake flowers from country baskets they are pretty
i ordered my foam flowers and all the other bits and made my own. They worked out really well 💖 and are still in one piece now
You can get bouquets made out of books etc that are folded into flowers they look amazing
I'm getting married that month aswell. Looking at getting my fake flowers from https://budgetweddingflowers.co.uk as I've read loads of great reviews.

I used cheap fake flower garlands from eBay to decorate a garden arch for the focus of our ceremony, and it looked really effective. We had a coastal wedding so I had seashell and artificial flower bouquets made specially by a lovely lady on Etsy, who used photos of the wedding and bridesmaid dresses to inspire her.
I’ve had my artificial flowers from GroovyRuby online,they are fab and great price too
These flowers we're made for a person getting married in hospital they were made out of paper and buttons
I’m using this lady. She can post out to you. She’s lovely and the flowers are so realistic I genuinely can’t tell the difference. She uses real touch ones. Prices are reasonable and you get to keep them for life...
I bought my bouquet on Ebay but country baskets for the rest x
What about feathers instead they look lovely my friend had them

We used fake flowers back in july from beautiful bouquets and were stunning
I made a fabric flowers bouquet for a bride a couple of years ago, and her bridesmaids had matching corsages on their wrists. It was rockabilly and the flowers were made of polka dots and leopard skin print

Flowers don't have to be overly expensive if you have a friend or family member who could make a simple spray up for you from supermarket flowers.
Real flowers are gorgeous bit attract wasps! Artificial are the way to go and they can be kept too xx
I had fake flowers at my wedding that I got off eBay.
Yes... my bouquet was silk flowers and peacock feathers, mostly because I am allergic to most pollens. They looked stunning and I still have them as a keepsake.
I had dried flower bouquets rustic style so we could all keep afterwards... we all had dried flower head dresses. The florist made them up.
I've just been quoted £365 for 8 artificial bouquets/flowers in jugs so am considering looking at the range for artificial ones as this is for table decorations and its rather expensive so i would guess fresh flowers would be just as expensive,if not more!
Each of my bridesmaids held the hand of my flower girls who had baskets of fake scented flower petals to drop. It was so pretty and meant the little ones weren’t so nervous
I made buttonholes and bouquets from artificial flowers from Ikea for my daughters
