Real Touch Flowers - Help please!

Hey ladies,

Im getting married next June in Paphos and I am thinking I would like to take artificial flowers with me, the real touch ones not silk!

I would like some suggestions if possible on which type to have:

My dress is a Maggie - Stella (sorry not sure how to post here) If you look it up it is the one shown with the burgundy sash.

My 2 older BMs will be in the deep burgundy with ivory and the flowergirl in ivory with burgundy like me.

I just dont know whether to keep to the same colours or go for something different??? I know that I would like some green in there somewhere and I dont want anything too over the top. Quite simple me image and not sure on posies.

What do reckon??? Anyone have any suggestions for me??? Sorry to have gone on :\?


    sorry it has to be real flowers everytime for me

    I was opting for real touch as I could then bring them home and have them put into nice vases and keep them.

    Do you reckon I should go for real then?

    hi how about having real flowers for your bouquet and artificial buttoholes? the prices i saw were about £10 for a buttonhole which i think is ridiculous! that's what i'm thinking of doing anyway! xx

    Definitely go with the artificial flowers if you want to keep them forever. I'm doing this with all my flowers as there's no need to pay out for real - the venue is filled with the scent of flowers so I won't be missing out.

    Here are a couple of ideas for you

    Your bouquet:

    BM bouquet:

    Flowergirl posy:

    Or you could use burgundy cala lilies or cream orchids with a burgundy centre x

    Hi everyone I'm also considering ordering artificial flowers how close to the wedding should you order them? Not getting married untill the 25th May so don't want them sitting around too long x

    MrsHigginstobe, you can order them whenever you want. I get married next June and I already have mine. I'm keeping them away from direct sunlight so they won't fade.

    The main reason I'm having artificial is so that I can keep them forever (on display) - they will be sitting around for years afterwards so there won't be a problem in ordering early x

    I think if you go fake go real touch, those ones from sarahs are silk and look very old skool wedding?? if that makes sense? like something from the 80's.

    just google some images and the one below has burgundy berries so would tie in with your dress even though the flowers are orange (you said maybe different colours?)

    this one is red and green with orchids

    All the pics are real flower but you could get one made up in real touch?

    What about an all green orchid bouquet? simple and green but had the burgundy bits in the middle of the orchid which would match your burgundy theme?

    Hi ya,

    I'm also considering real touch flowers as the climate I'm getting married in will kill the flowers within a few hours. Another bride on here has used this company and I am thinking of also using it. The flowers look stunning.

    Here's a link: 5.html

    She also has an e-bay shop.

    Thanks butterfly, thought some pictures may bring inspiration, I say artificial you keep them forever!

    Gypsy girl: Their bouquets are very expensive and ordering from the US wont we be stummped for import tax and VAT so will work out even more expensive?
