I will get married in next three month, I want to buy a silk wedding bouquets, because I search some very beautifull bouquet flowers at http://www.cloneflower.com and etsy.com.com, but one of my best friend insists that fresh flowers are the best, what do you think about real or artifical flower for wedding bouquet?

Congratulations!!!
I made all of my bouquets, boutonnières, cake topping, and corsages for my wedding, back in Nov. I used silk flowers. All of my attendants kept their bouquets as keep sakes. I am in the process of finding a display case for my bouquet: it's the size of a table centerpiece, and almost as heavy...lol! The men's boutonnières, including my husband's, are used as decor in our home, along with other decor that I made/used during our ceremony. Everything looked beautiful, no one could tell the difference, and I can keep them FOREVER. Real flowers are over-rated, and far too expensive for temp purpose. It's one day...and it goes so fast. Your flowers can be used as a memoir and decoration as a testimony to the most beautiful day of your lives. Go with SILK (not sure when your wedding date is, and I hope I'm not too late with my post)!!!
The following are photos of my flowers from my wedding. Hope they will help you to decide, if you haven't, already...

I currently have nice artificial flowers as decor in my house and people who stop by always think they're real.

Now that I know that there are beautiful life-like Silk flowers, I wish I had gone with artificial ones, because they'd be forever keepsakes for anyone that took home a centerpiece, and I would still have my bouquet.

myself, has to be real flowers. I would rather have no flowers or just greenery than artificial flowers. That's just me. I eloped, and I held a single bouquet of pale pink roses, that was enough for me.

For my wedding my wife used a mix of both to help balance the cost of expensive fresh flowers and cheaper silk flowers which are still beautiful. Fresh don't last long so if you are preparing in advance it's something to consider.

Real or none. I would do less of them if budget was an issue

i highly recommend you to spend little more money and to buy real flowers. The artificial flowers it is better to use for other events
