I personally am doing artificial for a few reasons. 1. I want to be able to keep my bouquet after without additional work. 2. Our wedding is in the fall so dried things kinda fit the theme. 3. Costs I'm also DIYing them so that'll save me costs too. Mt best friend did it for her wedding and they turned out great!
I am not a fan of flowers and the ones I love will not be in season, but I hired someone who did them for me, the photos do not do them justice. She charged me $350 for my bouquet and 3 bridesmaids circle bouquet things.
