Should you use silk flowers for your wedding?

Silk flowers have had their ups and downs over the years. Many years ago, silk blooms had a less than positive reputation. This is mainly due to the fact that they were poorly made and they were also made from inferior quality which means that they would break and fade very quickly. Not to mention the fact that they look so very obviously fake. Today, artificial flowers have come a long way and there are some amazing silk arrangements that you can use to decorate your wedding.

Silk flowers don’t wilt

The number one advantage is the fact that you don’t have to worry about these blooms wilting early. They will look amazing for the entire day and evening without worrying about the weather or keeping them hydrated. This is important for your guests as well as all of those memorable wedding photos.

You can reuse them

You don’t have to discard your wedding flowers once the big day is over. You can save your bouquets and use them to decorate your home. Remember, you don’t have to leave the arrangements as they are, you can remove as many flowers as you like and create a whole new display.

Price differences

The one concern when it comes to silk flowers is the price. Quality silk blooms will cost more than those that are of an inferior quality. Silk arrangements can also cost more than fresh flowers but, if you want perfect centrepieces for your entire wedding, silk could be for you.

Mix it up

If you are looking for something in the middle, you can always opt for mixed arrangements that include silk and fresh flowers. The best way to do this is to invest in quality silk flowers so that they look great next to the fresh ones in each arrangement. Secondly, you should choose the right type of flowers. If a particular type of flower is not in season or if they are known to perish or wilt quickly, then these are the ideal silk blooms for your bouquets.

When you order silk flowers, make sure that you tell your florist that you want blooms that look just like the real thing. You don’t want anything less than the best for your big day.
