Where to get a deal on silk/artificial flowers for wedding bouquets?

I want to make them myself but not spend an arm and a leg on each single stem

  • real nice one's do cost a arm and a leg! It might be cheaper to use real ones.

  • Micheals craft store. And they run a 40% coupon too. JoAnn's fabric store runs coupons too or they always have them 30-40% off. Dont go to walmart. Their flowers are ugly and cheap looking. Real one's will be a pain in the a$$ to keep them fresh and deal with at the last minute.

  • I got mine at Hobby Lobby. Michael's and JoAnn's are also good. Really any craft store has good looking flowers, and if you time it right you can get in on an end of season sale or something or use coupons. I had fake lilies in winter, and they looked really good, plus they didn't stink like real ones do.
