Why Should I Use Fake Flowers for my Wedding? 7 Reasons Why Choosing Faux Permanent Botanical Wedding Flowers Sometimes Makes Sense

One of the bouquets below is designed using silk flowers and the other using fresh flowers. Can you tell which is which?

While we love designing with fresh flowers for our weddings and events, there are some instances when using faux silk Permanent Botanical blooms is a better choice. 

1. Your favorite flower is out of season on your wedding date

Imagine you dream about the perfect bridal bouquet all your life, only to discover your favorite blooms are out of season. Not a problem for faux flowers. Beautiful faux blooms are always available.

2. Less stress – No surprises!

Having your wedding flowers shipped to you months before your wedding date allows you to make certain that the bouquets and arrangements are perfectly matched to your unique style and theme.

3. Allergen-free

Faux blooms are ideal for allergy sufferers. No chance for itchy noses or watery eyes when taking wedding photos!

4. No one will know

Many of today’s silk flowers are botanically correct in shape and color so no one will be the wiser.

5. Low maintenance

Silk wedding bouquets can be packed and transported easily. Since there is no water source to worry about, these durable blooms are perfect for destination weddings. Take your dream bouquet with you.

6. Inclement weather

Even in uncooperative weather, you won’t have to be concerned about your wedding flowers freezing from the cold or wilting in the heat. Your guests may mind the weather, but your flowers won’t.

7. You can keep your wedding flowers forever!

Keepsake bouquets serve as lovely reminders for you and your bridesmaids. Your faux wedding flowers can also be repurposed. Several of our brides have used their silk flower ceremony floral arch to later decorate a mantel or hang above their bed.
