I would never do silk flowers! That's just my opinion! People know, and they will talk about it (not good). Nothing is better than real flowers....Period. If this is a little too much for your budget, have less fowers.
LOL - No they won't.
Silk flowers are a little more obvious than the real touch/latex flowers but I had a huge "fake" bouquet and I had people stopping to sniff my roses and sweetpeas.
SO anyone worried about the "realness" of fake flowers, don't be! They are awesome. I've still got my bouquet three years later.
