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.
