Do people use fake flowers for wedding bouquets?
Never use fake flowers in your wedding bouquet. Trust us, you will regret that. Don’t use them in your bridesmaids’ bouquets, groomsmen’s boutonnieres, or in the corsages or small nosegays that you would give to the mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom.

You can definitely use faux flowers instead of fresh ones (especially if you’re highly allergic to the real deal), but don’t go this route if you’re looking to save some money. In fact, good artificial flowers (the kind that look real) are usually made of silk and can be more expensive than their natural counterparts.
Are fake flower centerpieces tacky?

Peonies. Hands down, this is the most highly coveted of all wedding flowers. Everyone loves ’em, everyone wants ’em, but sadly, they’re one of the most expensive flowers.

Do grandparents get flowers at a wedding?
There aren’t any set-in-stone traditions about who gets to wear wedding-day flowers.
