- Wedding: September 2012
I was debating between fake and real flowers. First I made a bouquet out of regular silk flowers. It looked good. But after I emailed pics of it to my mom and best friend who lives in Germany, i was hesitating. The thing is in Russia where I am from fake flowers are only used at the funeral:(((
But at the same time I didn’t want to deal with real flowers. First, my wedding is on the small budget and I don’t think I could afford a professional florist. Second, i didn’t want to deal with it myself at the last moment (I am sure there will be so much other little things to do right before the big day). Third, from everywhere i read real hydrangeas do not last long and wilt very fast, even when arranged by professional.
So this is how I decided on real/true touch bouquets. They are not real, but not too fake. Bought them on sale at Hobby Lobby with free shipping.
And the bouquet I made earlier with silk flowers will use as a tossing bouquet!
