Are you planning on keeping your bouquet and don't want to go through the hassle of preserving your bouquet or having a dried out mite infested bouquet around the house? A friend showed me another alternative to that other than silk flowers. It's beautiful and looks just like real flowers and you can keep it for a very long time...as long as you are careful with it and don't drop it. These are carefully hand crafted with decomagic clay from Japan and is becoming very popular.
