Fresh Blooms or Faux Flowers

May 3, 2023

When you start planning a wedding, the costs add up quickly. One of the biggest expenses are flowers. This Spring we've met some savvy brides who chose to use faux flowers in place of fresh ones. Hmm, will they look fake? Not if you find the right ones.

Today's silk flowers look better than ever. They are increasingly popular as an alternative to fresh wedding flowers. Their high-quality can easily pass for the real thing. You can choose to have your bouquet consist of only faux flowers, or incorporate sprays of faux flowers to accent a fresh arrangement. Using both faux and fresh can help keep costs down while featuring star blooms that may be out of season at the time of your wedding.

The silk flowers in this gorgeous bouquet look super real. The cascading shape is classic and graceful. The wedding ceremony arch is draped with complementary flower garlands. Absolutely stunning.

There are so many options. Collect separate sprays of faux florals and greenery for the DIY bride. Delicate crepe blooms can be a beautiful choice, especially if your wedding has a rustic vibe. Wooden flowers complement a boho bride and metal petals give an industrial flair.

We've seen felt flowers for a more playful and fun theme.

What ever you do, pay attention to quality. If you're buying online, order a few options ahead of time. The materials may look different in person.
