I often get asked whether couples should choose silk or fresh flowers for their wedding day. And the truth is, there are pros and cons to both options.
Fresh flowers are a classic choice for weddings, and for good reason. They offer a beautiful and natural look that can’t be replicated with silk flowers. Fresh flowers also offer a wonderful fragrance that can add to the overall ambiance of your wedding. However, fresh flowers can be expensive, and they have a limited lifespan. They will need to be ordered and arranged just before the wedding, and they may not last beyond a few days after the wedding.
On the other hand, silk flowers offer a number of advantages that make them a popular choice for many couples. Silk flowers are incredibly realistic and can be made to look just like fresh flowers. They are also more durable than fresh flowers and can be used for other events or home decor after the wedding. Additionally, silk flowers can be ordered well in advance of the wedding, allowing couples to plan and prepare without worrying about the flowers wilting or dying.
When deciding between silk or fresh flowers, it’s important to consider your priorities and preferences. If you’re looking for a natural and authentic look, fresh flowers may be the way to go. If you’re looking for convenience and durability, silk flowers may be a better choice.
Ultimately, there’s no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing between silk or fresh flowers. Both options offer their own unique benefits, and the decision comes down to your personal preferences and priorities. By working with a skilled and experienced florist, you can create beautiful and memorable wedding flowers, whether you choose silk or fresh.
