Lexi + Ben Ceremony

My cute cousin Lexi and her sweetheart Ben got married and I had the honor of doing their flowers! Their ceremony was at this beautiful barn in Draper and we did silk flower arrangements. I always love seeing all of the people who come out to support and show their love for a new couple. Here are pictures from the ceremony, I will post more from the reception in another post!

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!
