Hello WeddingWire Family! What are you all planning on doing for flowers?! Are you going artificial or real? What kind of flowers are you going with?! Let us see what you've chosen so everyone can get some ideas. It's always nice to see what combinations everyone has picked!

My fiance and I decided to go with artificial flowers for a few reasons. One, the price of artificial flowers is 3 times less then real flowers. Two, we're getting married in a different province then where we live, so it'll be easy to transport. Three, the flowers won't wilt the day of our wedding in 35+ degree weather. And the fourth reason, we're able to choose the exact flowers we want instead of only having to choose from certain flowers that are in season with real flowers.

For our Bouquets we have decided on Cali Lilies, Anemone Flower, Berries and Leaves

For our Boutonnieres and Corsages we will have Cali Lilies, Berries and Leaves

And for our Centerpieces we have gone with Hydrangeas, Berries and Leaves

I don't have a picture of them made up yet since they're still at the flower shop but I'm excited to see the finished look when it's complete!!

    That's great that you have connections! Ivory roses always look nice together for weddings ❤

    We have opted for real flowers as a close friend owns a flower shop in the small town we live in and she does beautiful work. The bouquets will incorporate ivory roses (my fave!), different colors of gerbera daisies and orchids. All of my girls are wearing different jewel toned dresses so a mix of colors will be gorgeous!

    Doing a small amount from costco + fake eucalyptus for the tables Smiley smile were renting a ton of LED candles so our flower cost is super cheap. White roses, and their pack of mini flowers.

    I did artificial bunch of different wildflowers. The bees and bugs actually thought these were real. They ended up turning out pretty well and I got to keep my bouquet and my Bridesmaids got to keep theirs as keepsakes.

    I would honestly check out every single flower shop that you can find until you can find the right one! My fiance and I had to do that until we had found this hidden gem of a florist!

    I’m trying to work out a way of using artificial flowers (sola, paper, silk) but struggling so far to find authentic looking wildflowers! If anyone has any recommendations I’d love to hear them! ☺️

    Carnations are beautiful! If you two haven't gotten a florist already, I highly recommend Flower Affairs in Edmonton 10431 51 Ave. Margarita is amazing at her work.

    My fiancee has suggested artificial flowers and is planning to use them for her own bouquet, as well as the bridesmaids' ones. Carnations are her favorite (in a few different colors).

    I can totally agree with this!! I love baby’s breath! It’s also my fmil’s favourite. However peonies are my favourite flower so I have to somehow incorporate them in there 🤷🏽‍♀️

    Mine are from a local florist in Edmonton. Oh no! I hope you find some. Costco is a good choice for flowers as well.

    This is the final product of mine

    Oie,

    where did you guys get some of these fake flowers - they are lovely.

    I got overexcited and got a bunch a Michaels when they had a sale, and I've pretty much returned them all cause they looked too fake. If we need more - to costco we go!

    We did ask in may at the small town florist. She had no idea what would be in season or cheaper in September and gave me a magazine from the 80's to pick from... so florist was quickly abandoned as an idea.
