To Silk or not to Silk ..?

Ladies, I need your opinions ?!

This alter picture (just the rose arrangements) is the look I'm going for, minus the Chupa. My arrangements will probably have feathers incorporated.

Silk (or whatever they make at Hobby Lobby/Garden Ridge) or Real Roses ?

I want my bouquet to be fresh flowers only if I can get Black Magic and Black Baccara roses.

I will use Black Stems instead of green in the tall hurricane pictures.
Should I use silk or real rose petal in the places that I plan on scattering ?

I like and used real rose petals, but I am not a huge fan of silk flowers. That's just me though, and mostly because my mom is a floral designer :) Florists usually save rose petals, so I would ask how much they charge for a few bags then price out silk ones too! Good luck

I prefer real rose petals...its a mental thing I guess. I can always use them in my Cleopatra Milk Bath that I make...I will get with the florists shops I'm working with to see what their prices are.  THX !
