Because I was doing so much other things for my wedding I decided to use fake flowers. I bought ours at Michaels during a half off sale so I could afford the real looking ones. Foam fake flowers especially look very real, nobody had any idea that my flowers were fake. It was much easier then you would think and since I used fake I had plenty of time for trial and error. I got most of the ideas off the internet and would just play with it until I got something that I liked. I can't stress just how easy this was. It's not as hard as many think.
Plus fake flowers can be passed on and reused. I gave most the flowers used in my wedding to my best friends grandmother who makes great decorative pieces using fake flowers and other things.
