    I used artificial for my bouquet. My MIL made it for me, and it was beautiful. And the bonus is, I still have it!
    Thank you Brentscrystal!

    I used artificial for everything, but a large bouquet at the reception and the floating daisies in the center pieces. I still have my bouquet and my sisters two bouquets. My family and all the wedding party were able to keep their corsages as well. So both our mother's still have theirs, and our fathers!!!

    Let me see if I can find some pics for you!

    We are for our big wedding. We got all the flowers at Hobby Lobby 1/2 off. The last pic is what we did using the real flower example, I can't find my actual pic for some reason.

    I used artificial flowers for all of the decor...then my bouquet were real flowers. DH's aunt is very crafty and really did a good job....here are a few pictures of where flowers were included:

    Guest Book Table w/ artificial red rose petals:

    Groom's Table w/ green rose petals (and toy soldiers, and our love fern, haha).


    Our sendoff rose petals (real).


    The tables at the reception also had fake rose petals and the chapel had greenery that had artificial roses mixed in with them...the chapel where we had the wedding required that flowers indoors were artificial (except for bridal party bouquets) and outside had to be real.

    And this one doesn't have any flowers...but I think it's so cool....the flag stands out so much....

    I am thinking the ones for my flower girl will probably be artificial because of throwing them on the carpet. I've heard stories of the color in the flowers bleeding on the rug and my church as very light colored carpet. Mine will be real for sure, and I have no idea about the decorations yet. We haven't gotten that far.
