Because I am doing feather arrangements for decor, I REALLY wanted to incorporate some into my bouquet.

I normally would have no interest in fake flowers, but I LOVE this:
SHABBY CHIC Wedding Bouquet and Boutonniere by Ardesign on Etsy

I may just have to go this route. I'm in love with this bouquet! It fits my "vision" perfectly

That's lovely. I find that a lot of fake flowers look very real, and that way you can KEEP your bouquet! We had fake flowers for our hair (me, DD and the bridesmaids) and so many people thought they were real.

Oh I love that! My bouquet was actually "real touch" flowers. I ordered them online and put it together myself. I don't think you could tell they weren't real unless you inspected them closely and I loved it and saved a ton of money. So I say go for it!

Looks great! If I can get the bouquet I want in silk (haven't found it so far) I definitely will!

When I went to the Arizona Bridal Fashion Debut in Phoenix, one of the vendors was CLAY flowers - they looked so real it was amazing! So expensive though!

If you are set on real flowers take the photo to the florist.I'm sure they can reproduce it.You may just have to buy the feathers you want.
Real touch flowers are great but almost cost the same as real flowers.

I looked at that shop, as well, a few days ago (this bouquet in particular)! I think that is the route I will be going. They look beautiful & you get to keep your bouquet forever. That bouquet is GORGEOUS!
