Hi, loves! Emma here. Do you love fresh flowers, but fake flower bouquets are starting to win you over? You’re not alone; many brides are opting for alternative wedding bouquets to save money and to have a lasting keepsake from the wedding day. If I had known about fake flower bouquets when I got married, you bet I would still have it in a vase on my desk. If you’re hesitant to go with fake flowers, it may be because you haven’t seen bouquets like these before! To inspire you, we’re rounding up twenty-two of the best fake flower bouquets. These are handmade and vary in material from fabric to paper — even paper. Wait until you see what we’ve found…
Fake Flower Bouquets
I love real flowers, but fake flower bouquets make complete sense. The best artificial wedding flowers are the ones which look real — or have beautiful handcrafted touches added to make it more personalized for the bride. Here’s why fake flower bouquets are a brilliant idea for weddings.
1. Fake flower bouquets last forever.
The concept of a bouquet that lasts forever is a pretty strong argument. Who wants to throw hard-earned money in the trash, just a few days after the wedding? No wilting. No drooping. No faded color. Just beautiful long-lasting flowers that look real and can be displayed at home for years to come.
Doesn’t this make an awesome centerpiece? By RiversEdgeRelics.
2. Artificial flower bouquets are more customizable.
If you want, say, peonies in October, you’re going to pay a LOT for them. Peonies are expensive in-season… can you imagine them out of season? But if you get a fake bouquet, you can customize it exactly to your liking. Any flower is in season when the flowers are silk. ;) This also means you can really play up your color palette, selecting individual blooms that tie in your overall theme and colors with ease. And for a lot less than you would pay with fresh blooms.
Besides the color and bloom options, consider the difference of handmade bouquets vs. fresh flowers when it comes to accents. With artificial flower bouquets, you can add brooches, buttons, vintage lace, felt, silk, beads, etc. to really put your own handcrafted touch on it.
3. Silk wedding bouquets are lovingly handmade.
Getting a fake flower bouquet doesn’t mean you’ll have to give it a go and DIY your way through it — instead, enlist the help of a professional who spends their days perfecting the craft of artificial wedding bouquets. Let someone who has a passion for their flower craft design something you’re really going to love; in the process, you’re supporting small business and you’ll have a lifelong memento of your wedding to display.
So, it all sounds great — what’s the catch? Some brides argue that the bouquet won’t smell like flowers, but here’s the thing: no one is going to smell the bouquet but you. So, really, if you can live without it smelling authentic, then who’s going to know? Or care? No big deal, we say!
Fake flower bouquets are a popular choice for couples who suffer from allergies; one less thing to worry about on your wedding day — and in your photos. And if you’re getting married in a humid climate, you won’t need to worry about the flowers wilting or looking a little worn in a short amount of time. Fake flower bouquets look fresh and absolutely perfect all day long.
To give you some inspiration, we’re rounding up twenty of the best fake flower bouquets. These are all lovingly handmade and will look beautiful on your wedding day — and beyond. Which one is your favorite?
