Remember my debate over real v. fake flowers for the wedding?
I even posted a poll where you could vote!
The results were pretty much in favor of real...
Who am I kidding...
It was 27 to 1 in favor of real flowers.
So I debated... I consulted... and I finally decided what would be best for US.
Yep... we're going fake. Fake flowers for our wedding.
Do you know that when I googled "real v. fake flowers" for an image there were like three pictures from my blog not at all related to flowers... Interesting fact. ;)
I finally decided I liked that picture of the pretty daisies... real or not. ;)
Anyway... When it comes down to it, fake will be cheaper. They were easier to track down as far as type and specific colors.
AND we can start putting them together as soon as they come in.
I am getting the two days before the wedding off from work.
Barely enough time to get my behind in gear and drive the few hours to my parents house
(where we'll be pre-wedding.) That said, trying to insert time to put together flower arrangements and bouquets just wouldn't happen.
So yesterday I finally sat myself down and ordered our flowers.
I had been putting it off... I guess because of the debate over real v. fake... but also because I knew it was going to be a significant expense.
Thanks to Afloral.com and their free shipping promotion going on UNTIL yesterday, I knew I had to get it done. So, I did. Free shipping is a GREAT motivator.
And it was not as expensive as I had feared! I got flowers for my bouquet, the girls' bouquets, pre-made boutonnieres for the guys and the dads and enough flowers for our centerpiece vases! I even ordered some less expensive daisies to make a toss bouquet that the lucky recipient can keep!! :)
As well as all the floral tape, wire and ribbon to put it all together!!!
Thank goodness for a horticulturally talented sister! Thanks Kayli!!!
So that's done! A HUGE to do off the list!!!
And only... 24 days to go!!!
It's getting serious now friends... ;)
Now to find something the girls can toss from their flower girl baskets..
Fake petals aren't going to work on the golf course I'm afraid...
So what about you? Did you/will you have real or fake flowers?
Do you think it matters and if so why?
