oh no they are real and the most beautiful flowers ever. I just had a ceremony in march and i upgraded my flowers for $40. they were unbelievable. My friend that is a florist said she would of charged upwards of $200. I really would of loved to take them home but since we are not allowed on our last night my husband and i took my bouquet(flowers) down to the end of the peer and threw the flowers into the ocean. We had a glass of champagne and remembered what an incredible time we had shared over the last week.
