Here are the pics i have of the ones i did

 

I got all the flowers at Hobby Lobby during one of their 50% off sales, and for 5 bouquets, 8 boutineers, 4 corsages, and ribbon, I think we spent about 100 on everything. We did end up getting the most expensive roses though.

I currently have my bouquet in a vase being displayed in my house. So they do look very real and if you like the full open rose look, they work great.

Putting them together was not to bad, but i mainly just did the roses with nothing else.

Good Luck!!

I am using silk flowers, also. I got mine at Michael's, and I think they are very realistic-looking. I don't have any pictures of them at this time, but I'll try to post some after the wedding! :)

Silk flowers for less $$ can be found at Michaels, joAnns, & Hobby Lobby. Also check your local dollar stores - you may be surprised!

go to wedideas.com!  they are absolutely amazing!!!!  i think i found them from someone else on this forum, and my flowers were beautiful and looked so real!  i ordered my bouquet, toss bouquet, bouts and corsages from them.  they email you a pic of the bouquets before they send them out to get your final okay.  plus if you don't like them you can send them back and get them rearranged for free (just the cost of shipping). 

the email pic i got from them at first, the colors were all wrong!  so they worked with me and got the PERFECT colors! 

also, before that when i first decided to go with silk flowers, i went to michael's and they had some really pretty, simple premade bridesmaid bouquets that were 50% off.  so i got my bridesmaid bouquets for $25 total! 

the flowers from wedideas.com totaled (with shipping) about $150.  not bad!!
