Is it a faux-pas to mix artificial flowers with real blooms for wedding dГ©cor? -Andrea A. of Youngstown, Ohio, via Facebook

Dear Andrea,

Definitely not. However, if cost is a concern, good artificial flowers (usually silk) can be more expensive than real blossoms. So unless you're allergic to the real deal, consider forgoing the faux in favor of in-season blooms or affordable picks like carnations (which look great in a tight bunch) and gerbera daisies. Another great way to save? Consider repurposing your ceremony flowers at the reception. Assembling simple, small arrangements into centerpieces is a great cost cutter and can be a fun DIY project for you and your bridesmaids. That said, if you do decide to go faux, beware of long plastic stems-they're a dead giveaway and can cheapen the appearance of an otherwise lovely arrangement.
