Wedding Tips and Ideas!
#72 Fresh or Faux? And some want both!
For some, the idea of artificial flowers is out of the question! For others, like those who want a lasting keepsake, or who's grandmother or other family member suffers with... terrible allergies, faux flowers are their choice!
A few things to consider - any chosen bloom is available year round when it comes to artificial flowers however, not all of them are realistic looking! Yes, some are cheaper but if you want high quality, faux flowers, they can be pricey - like in the case of "Real Touch" flowers. So realistic looking, you can almost smell them - but they more expensive.
And how about those blooms that are in season yet remain very expensive - case in point - Lily of the Valley - extremely expensive however, we have found some very realistic looking artificial stems that can be incorporated into your bouquets and arrangements for a fraction of the cost!
We have an upcoming wedding whereby most will be fresh flowers however the couple want their main centerpiece at the head table to be constructed using artifical flowers so that they can use it to decorate their home. A wonderful reminder of their special day!
Talk to your florist about all your options - a good one will make your dream wedding happen!
