Hey, lovelies! Have you picked out your wedding flowers yet? You need to consider fake wedding bouquets that look real vs. fresh flower bouquets. Today we’re telling you why and answering the big question: do wedding bouquets have to be real flowers? Read on to find out!
Do wedding bouquets have to be real flowers? The short answer: no! Fake bouquets, especially fake wedding bouquets that look real, are a huge trend in weddings right now. And it’s not just because you’ll save money (you will) or because they’re just as beautiful as the real deal (they are). Fake wedding bouquets are in for a variety of reasons: you don’t have to worry about your wedding flowers staying refrigerated, keep them from wilting, you won’t sneeze or have allergic reactions to the flowers, and best of all — you will never have to throw them away! Plus, fake wedding bouquets are totally customizable so each one is made just for you. You can admire them in a vase on your desk or nightstand for years to come. We say that’s money well spent.
So, if fake wedding bouquets are all the rage, where’s a girl supposed to go to get ’em? One place to check out is Hey Bouquet. Renee pours her whole heart into her bouquet designs and it shows. She wants her brides to love their wedding bouquets forever, so she meticulously crafts them with the best materials. She uses on-trend sola wood flowers in an array of flowers to add texture, then combines it with preserved flowers for a true one-of-a-kind look.
It’s no secret that we love alternative wedding bouquets (remember this?) but I swear, they keep getting more beautiful every time we pop on over. Renee has a serious knack for floral design.
If you want, you can use fake wedding bouquets and arrangements all over your wedding from the ceremony (the flower girl can carry a small fake bouquet to keep, and bridesmaids can carry their own fake wedding bouquets, too!) along with flowers at the ends of your aisles and at the altar, chuppah, or arch.
At your reception, use fake wedding bouquets as centerpieces placed in mason jars (like these) or large glass hurricanes. If you’d like, Renee can even make specific centerpiece arrangements using fake flowers to give your wedding a completely cohesive look from start to finish.
With so many colors to choose from, your fake wedding bouquets can be completely customized to tie into your color palette, season, or theme.
My favorite from her collection is this bouquet, below; it’s gorgeous:
Renee also makes FABouquets, her collection of fabric wedding bouquets. Here’s one of my favorites:
