ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS

A lot of brides have been requesting artificial flowers instead of real flowers for their weddings. Artificial can sometimes be more affordable, but that shouldn’t be your reasoning for choosing it. Depending on the type of flowers, the season, etc. you can occasionally get better deals on a natural flower instead of its artificial counterpart. Whether you are doing artificial or real flowers, you can spend a fortune or do it on a budget. That is up to you! So when you set price aside, there are still a lot of reasons why brides are choosing fake over real.

  1. You can keep your bouquet forever
  2. You can get them as far in advance as you would like, which will reduce stress on the wedding day
  3. You can have flowers that may not be in season
  4. Your flowers won’t wilt throughout the day
  5. They are lightweight and easier to care for (no water!)
  6. You don’t have to worry about any allergies to certain flowers
  7. You can repurpose any of the flowers afterwards (centerpieces for your home, etc)

When you first think of artificial flowers your mind might immediately go to dollar store/cheap looking flowers but there are a lot of very realistic looking flowers out there. Your arrangements can still look incredible if you choose to go the artificial flower route!

DELILAH “WEDDING”

I did a collaboration last week and had some flowers left over so I made a bouquet and flower head band for Delilah. Once she saw it she begged me to take her “wedding day pictures”. So we put a pretty dress on her and did a little photoshoot! She loved it and when we got home she went and changed her dress so we could take some more photos.

As cute and fun as her little photoshoot was, the floral headband she is wearing is actually a great alternative for a full flower crown. It works great for bridesmaids, flower girls, or even the bride.

ANA & JACOB WEDDING

For Ana’s wedding day bouquet we went with primarily white bouquet with just a pop of color. Her bridesmaids were in different shades of pink dresses and their bouquets were just smaller & more simple versions of Ana’s bouquet. Then just simple boutonnieres for the groom & groomsmen.

ANA & JACOB BRIDALS

Ana and Jacob were such a fun couple to work with. I usually meet the groom for the first time when I am pinning his boutonniere on, but Jacob came along to our first meeting and it was a pleasure getting to know them both.

Their bridals were done by Charissa (www.charissaleephotography.com) and turned out incredible. All of these snowy wedding pictures that I get to be a part of are making me love winter weddings more than I ever thought I could.

SHALEE BRIDALS

Got to work with one of my favorite photographers again for this beautiful bride. Shalee makes winter look incredible. A lot of brides are currently asking for the green and white bouquets but I especially love this one because of all of the white in the landscape, her dress, and the flowers so it makes the green in the bouquet stand out so much. We are going to switch a few things up for her wedding day bouquet this weekend so keep an eye out for that post!

ELLIE WEDDING

I got Ellie’s wedding photos back from the incredible Sierra and I am so excited about them! Her wedding was the last one I did in 2018 and it was simple but so fun to do. Lots of greenery and white (just like her bridals). I did flower crowns for all of the bridesmaids as well as for Ellie, wristlets for the moms, a hanging eucalyptus backdrop for the reception, and boutonnieres for all of the groomsmen/fathers/groom. Her dress was absolutely perfect for the bohemian floral look we were going for.
