When it comes to your wedding day, nothing can be more important in your life. You spend months planning your wedding, while you probably spent years dreaming about it. Everything needs to be perfect and just like you imagined. And it should, because it is your day. After you’ve found the perfect man, the perfect dress and the perfect location, one of the next things you need to focus on are the flowers. This can get quite expensive considering you need flowers for the bouquets, the church and the reception. While you don’t want to sacrifice quality for price, a smart alternative is using silk wedding flowers.
Things have changed since the days when using silk wedding flowers were tacky or cheap. The industry has advanced so much that many flowers look like the real thing. Oftentimes, the only time you can tell them apart is by touching them. Hopefully your guests won’t be so nosy they’ll actually touch your flowers. Even if they do touch them, it won’t matter because they will look elegant and classy, all while saving you a bundle. You can use the money you saved to get a nicer dress or you could do the practical thing and save the money for starting your new life with the one you love.
Silk wedding flowers are available for all your wedding day flower needs. You can do just as much, if not more, with silk flowers that you can with real flowers. The silk flowers used today have such attention to detail that there even are life-like veins on the flower’s leaves. You can get all your boutonnieres, bouquets and centerpieces in coordinating flowers and colors. For your church decorating, you can get flower garlands and flower candle wreathes. The garland will look great on your seating, while the wreaths will be the perfect accompaniment to your romantic and spiritual candles.
Another great reason for using silk wedding flowers is because you won’t have to worry if the flower of you choice is in season. If it’s not in season, you won’t have to pay a ridiculously higher fee for getting greenhouse flowers. With silk flowers, the flowers always are in season. Many of the flowers also can be adjusted to match your wedding’s chosen colors. Some brides choose their flowers depending on what looks best with their colors. If you use silk flowers, you can choose the flower you want and have it adjusted to match your colors.
Even if money isn’t an issue for you, many brides decide to use silk wedding flowers because they’ll double as a keepsake. Why spend all that money on beautiful flowers that die in a few days? With silk flowers, you’ll have more than a photograph to remind you what your flowers looked like. Not only do they make a wonderful keepsake for the bride, they also make great mementos for the bridesmaids and mothers. Your friends and family love the fact they get to spend your day with you, they’ll be just as pleased to have a remembrance. They even can use them as part of their home’s décor afterward.
There are other ways you can keep your silk wedding flowers after your special day is over. Besides using the centerpieces as your own decorations, you can put the rest of your flowers in storage and recycle them at another wedding. If you have a family member who may be getting married in the next few years, ask them if they would want to use your flowers. Not only will this save them money, but you’ll feel as if you contributed to their big day. If this isn’t an option, or if they only want to use your centerpieces, another option you have is donating your flowers. If you used garland and wreathes to decorate your church, why not donate them back to the church? They’re always looking for decorative flowers they can use.
If you use silk wedding flowers for your special day, it also takes away the stress ordering real flowers. Since they are naturally grown, it’s always a gamble as to whether the flowers will be at their peak for your wedding day. They can quickly start to turn brown and wilt. You never know whether your flowers will look that way until the florist arrives to decorate. Why take the chance of a ruined wedding and no flowers? You could save yourself the hassle and stress by going with silk flowers.
If you are planning a wedding and haven’t considered using silk wedding flowers, just remember that the industry has changed and they no longer look fake and plastic. The silk flowers will give your wedding an elegant look while saving you hundreds of dollars, maybe even thousands.
