Fake flowers can look just as nice as real ones, and they last longer! If you're saving money, and you like how they look, what's the drama? Obviously the people who give you strange looks when you tell them haven't organised a wedding lately, and its nothing to do with them anyway!

I don't think it is cheap at all - all I had on my tables in terms of flowers were the petals - which I just said in another post cost me all of $30.

I did have candelabras, provided by the reception venue - covered in fake ivy - provided by the chair cover lady.

In the end I think my table decorations cost no more than $8 per table. and it looked FABULOUS! (if I do say so myself:P)

I think it depends on what look you are doing for...and of course personal choice! It is your wedding after all...dont worry what other people think.

I absolutly hate fake flowers - to me they are dust collectors...so all my flowers will be fresh - no matter what. My table arrangements are fresh terracotta pots in which I will be giving away to someone at each table - but thats my choice!

Go for what you want!!

i'm lucky that my reception's price includes candelabras for each table, and flowers and ivy to decorate them. there will also be flowers throughout the reception venue - AND i'm only paying $60 per head no extras!

i went to a wedding last year where they had tealight candles floating in bowls but the vase/bowl started to crack because the glass wasn't glass after all, or just couldn't handle the heat coming from the candles...so that's something you bride-to-bes might want to be aware of.

I'm only having flowers for the bridal party. We're not even having table decorations, because I don't see the point. I would rather have a really clean styled minamilist table - so that's what we're having.
I don't think it's cheap at all - it's your wedding! People probably won't even notice and even so, they will realise that you have better things to spend your wedding money on flowers.

Go for it!! I think a lot of non real flowers look very realistic!
