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!!

    I had made origami bouquets and boutonnières for my wedding (with help fromy bridesmaids, mom & mother-in-law), however with changes to our wedding due to covid, we got married immediate family only and didn't end up having a bridal party. Instead, I used the bouquets as photo props, others as wedding decor and we opted for real flowers for just my bouquet and my husband's boutonnière. The origami flowers were awesome, original, less expensive than traditional flowers and fun to make (though time consuming!). Plus, they don't die after the wedding!

    We did artificial rentals as the reasons you had made sense except it was local near my parents home. The vase with a white floral ball was the simplest as each table got one per 8 persons. The addition I added was watercolour beads and LED lights to go through the night for its brightness. The idea was the pride flag order of seeing the tables getting one per colour. This was a gift from my parents as they paid for it.

    Thank you! I love them all individually as flowers but they are quite different colour-wise so hoping they will all look good together. I also thought about hydrangeas or lilacs at first, but my florist advised me those (from bushes/trees or with woody stems) don't do well in bouquets because they need water or will wilt quickly. And the ones I've picked are such a different combination I've had to just picture it in my mind together since I can't find any bouquets with all those elements in it to visualize 😂

    I think the centerpiece will look amazing with the blue carnations!

    We were at our florist about 2 weeks ago to see how our flowers are coming along. Since we're going the artificial way, we picked our flowers out almost 2 years ago and they've been sitting in a box. She had a few pieces somewhat done but not completely done yet and this is our centerpieces so far this is what she's done!

    We are doing white gladiolus with blue/white carnations! They have been my favorite flowers since I can remember.
    I might add a little accent like leaves or baby’s breath..

    Hydrangeas are beautiful for centerpieces that why we went with them for ours!

    I did the same with our florist when it came to my bouquets except I told her I want to have Cali Lilies as part of it. That's when she was like Ok! and then brought in a few others to incorporate with the Cali Lilies and I mean she has been amazing! We went a few weeks back to see how the process was going and here's just a little bit of a sample of what my bouquet is like. It's not completely done yet

    Samee! I know I want hydrangeas in my centerpieces but I'll probably just let the florist decide for the bouquets

    We are doing fake for centerpieces and decor. I haven't really thought too much about what flowers specifically. For our bouquets we will have real flowers, also not too sure which kinds.

    Because we're not using too much flowers in our arrangements, we opted for real. Fiancee is using a lot of baby's breath and the florist will arrange for pastel colours flowers that are in-season to liven up the white.
