Funerals and weddings have something in common – flowers! In both cases, flowers are used to celebrate life; the end of a life and the beginning of a couple's life together. Flowers send many different messages for all sorts of different occasions.
An arrangement of daisies can be sent to cheer someone up and let them know that you're thinking of them. A dozen long-stemmed red roses says, “I love you” quite clearly. Flowers can be sent with get-well wishes, happy birthday wishes, congratulations on your new job or graduation, apologies, and of course, to new mothers to celebrate the birth of their new little one.
But let's face it; people can get through an illness, a birthday, a graduation, and more without a single blossom. That's not the case with a wedding. Start talking about a wedding and images of flowers come to mind. A wedding simply wouldn't be a wedding without a bridal bouquet and the many other arrangements that are part of the big day. From reception centerpieces, to corsages, to flower girl baskets to the wedding bouquets themselves, flowers are an essential element in a wedding.
When it comes to ordering flowers for your wedding, where do you begin? You can go from florist to florist scheduling consultations, or you can shop online for silk wedding flower packages that will cover all of your needs. Just turn on your laptop in the comfort of your living room or at a coffee shop with WIFI connection and you'll be on your way to planning the floral wedding of your dreams!
Silk wedding flowers are not only beautiful, but they're also practical. With silk flowers there isn't any worrying about whether or not the wedding bouquets will hold up in the heat or freeze in the cold. There are more colors and hues available than with fresh flowers and the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres are more durable than their fresh counterparts. If a silk bridal bouquet is dropped, it can easily be prepared if a bloom falls off or a stem gets bent. That's certainly not the case with fresh floral arrangements.
There isn't a better choice for the sentimental bride either. While you can preserve your fresh bridal bouquet, it's not going to look as good as your beautiful silk wedding bouquet ten or twenty years from now. You certainly can't pass your fresh bouquet on to your daughter for her wedding like you can your silk bridal bouquet.
Depending on the age of your flower girl, you may want to consider having a silk flower girl basket, no matter what. Children can be careless at times and you wouldn't want the flower arrangement that she's carrying to end up dropped and ruined.
If allergies are a problem with anyone in the wedding party, silk wedding flowers are the answer. There are many different silk wedding flower packages available online. Take the time to check them out before meeting with a local florist. You may be surprised at how much money you will save going with a silk wedding flower set.
