    I am doing a mix of fresh and artificial flowers because what I want is going to cost too much if I do all fresh. All of my personal flowers (all bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres) will be fresh as well the centerpieces for my GUEST tables. I am doing more extravagant arrangements for my 2 family tables and for my head table, which will be artificial. I didn't specify which flowers I wanted to use, I just gave a budget and flowers were chosen based on that and on the season.

    I'm doing fake flowers and greenery, I haven't decided on what material they will be made out of yet but they are a fraction of the cost and I want to make my own bouquets and centerpieces so I want time to do them in advance.

    Ohh 100% on the fake greens. My florist wanted $300 for a little bit of greenery for tables. We could easily get all that we need for less than $100 and then reuse it!

    This sounds beautiful and I can picture how the hydrangeas will really fill out your arrangements while complimenting your white roses.

    Oh that will look so nice, and I like how your bridesmaid's will compliment your bouquet. I hear you on using fake greenery to save $$. I am using fake flowers for that reason too!

    We are using a smaller shop in Niagara that has only been open for a little over a year I believe. She is super amazing and her work is beautiful.
    My bouquet will look something like this one, but with burgundy being the main colour. The bridesmaids will be opposite with lighter colours being most of the bouquet.
    We are not having any flowers in the reception, just some greenery which will most likely be fake to save on the cost!
