The Advantages of Artificial Flowers at your Wedding
There are many benefits of using paper flowers at your wedding, one being they can be as different and unique as you like. With so many different paper designs, textures and colours you can really let your imagination go wild.
Polka dots, stripes, stars, damask even leopard print... none of these choices are off limits. Paper flowers carry all the same benefits as you would expect from artificial flowers.
They can be kept forever and should be stored in a watertight box out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.
Another major benefit is size. With paper flowers you can make them as big or as small as you would like. You can make a real feature with giant hanging flowers from the ceiling over the dance floor or maybe strategically placed over each of your tables.
For a gorgeous vintage feel you could use the paper from old weathered books to create some stunning centrepiece flowers while your guests try to read the writing and guess which book they came from.
Paper flowers can also create a sensational back drop to your top table at the wedding breakfast.

Silk or Artificial Flowers
These are becoming more & more popular for weddings & celebrations due to the superior quality offered. Gone are the days of plastic dewdrop roses in garish colours to be replaced by flowers so botanically correct in every detail it is hard to tell the difference. Available in a vast array of colours and always in season you can have virtually any flower in any colour at anytime of year and unlike fresh flowers they are always in season. If you or your guests suffer with Hay fever they are perfect and you have no worries about allergies spoiling your big day.
You can purchase your flowers well in advance of your big day so no surprises or panic on the morning of the wedding if they are not what you expected.
For weddings abroad they are perfect, lightweight & easy to transport, they can be transported as hand luggage and a tried & tested method of transportation is a large hatbox which works perfectly.
The cost of silk is marginally cheaper than fresh but due to the excellent quality of the flowers they are now becoming comparable to fresh. The advantage of silk is that they can be kept indefinitely if they are stored or displayed correctly.
To store your silk flowers before your big day always use acid free tissue paper & keep them in the box they arrive in, away from damp & direct sunlight, which will fade them.
