I’m designing my own bouquets of burgundy, white and blush flowers. How many people did this? Where is the best place to get fake flowers for an affordable price without making them look TOO fake? Michael’s is great, but it adds up!

    Afloral.com is fantastic and you can get the fillers at Michaels to keep the price down. We are doing this for our decorative flowers

    That's where we went and it was soooo worth it! I have a similar colour scheme as you do and they are beautiful!!

    I was a bit disappointed that they were a bit flattened (bridesmaids flowers) but I was able to shake/shape them back into flower looking bouquets lol

    I paid a total of $117 and got a total of 17 bunches of greenery, flowers, and filler flowers in which most can be divided into 6 stems or more per bunch Smiley smile

    Michael's is a great idea! Get on their email list you will get coupons all the time (the only time i go to Michael's is with coupons)

    If you need a bunch of flowers to cover an area you can get a bunch of rose heads or other flower heads on amazon! That is where I ordered a few hundred pieces to do my centrepieces!

    Took advantage of the BOGO sale at Michaels for making my aunts bouquets and boutonnieres for her wedding--> I suggest having two people- one to get the cheaper green stems for BOGO, and the other getting the bigger bunches of flowers- considering you can get a fair amount of stems from each bunch its not too bad- spent about 110 dollars and i can get about 1 bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids, and 6 boutonnieres. Good luck!

    Michaels is the place to go! They always have big sales at the end of the season and watch for their coupons. Last week I was able to use their 55% coupon to buy my table number holders what cut the cost in half. You can find the coupons online on their website, they always have them and you can use them over and over.

    I'm getting mine at Michael's just keep looking for their sales event. You can also buy it at dollar store but i mostly seen blush and white colors of flowers. So you get those there and the rest Michael's.

    I have seen some decent ones at Dollarama actually. It depends on the colour and type. Most of them you can tell are fake but if you're willing to look through you might find some decent ones.

    I did this. And I'm loving them. I wait for huge floral sales at Michael's (50-70% off all stems) and I've bought a significant amount from afloral.com (which also regularly has sales of 15% off)
