When Faux Flowers Are A Good Idea

Every bride wants beautiful flowers on her wedding day! So what’s a girl to do when those Cafe Au Lait Dahlias are DOA because, yes, they are that delicate and don’t last long out of water. Love the idea of lush peonies? I hope you’re getting married in May! Outdoor wedding? Yikes! Hydrangeas and heat do not get along! Planning on taking pics a few hours before the actual ceremony or in between the ceremony & reception? It’s unlikely your bouquets can withstand all of that action and still look picture perfect for your walk down the aisle. The good news is that silk flowers have come a long way. You’ll have a tough time guessing which blooms are the real deal and which one are faux.  So when is it best to make the shift? Here’s our guide to when faux flowers are a good idea.



1. You can’t beat the heat! Whether you’re a summer bride, live in a warm climate or you’re having an outdoor wedding, heat is a big factor when selecting the right flowers. Sometimes Faux is the way to go. Nothing is worse then a floppy, deflated hydrangea. A faux bouquet or centerpiece is a sure fire way to keep your flowers looking picture perfect for the duration of your wedding from start to finish.


2. Out of Season, Out of Luck! Dahlias, Peonies & Poppies oh my! There are certain blooms that always come up when talking flowers and unfortunately these varieties are extremely seasonal and often unpredictable. Same goes for a lot of unique greens, berries and things like Moonglow Pepper Chilis, Privet Berries and Scabiosa Pods. Opting to use a few faux stems of these blooms mixed in with fresh flowers is a great way to get the look you want, no matter what the time of year.


3. Extended Portrait Sessions. If you’re planning on taking photos a few hours before the ceremony or for a few hours in-between the ceremony and reception, chances are your bouquets and boutonnières are not going to go the distance. There is nothing worse than a bride and her bridesmaids walking down the aisle or into the reception with dead bouquets. The same goes for floral crowns and floral hair pieces.  Fresh blooms do not last long out of water and they are also extremely heavy and difficult to secure into your hair for a long period of time. As for the guys, they are known to be less than gentle with their flowers, and are often taking their jackets on and off and tossing them about. Faux blooms are the way to go.

5 Reasons Why You Should Have A Winter Wedding

Winter months are typically slow season when it comes to weddings. It’s cold and dreary and all the best flowers are available in the warmer months, right? Wrong! Winter weddings are full of beautiful blooms and warm and cozy details.  Check out our top reasons why winter weddings are oh so perfect!



1. The weather outside may be frightful but the fire & hot chocolate, are oh so delightful! Hot Chocolate Bar? S’mores Station? A Romantic Glow from a fire pit at your cocktail hour or fireplace at your reception? Yes Please! Now that you cannot do in July.


2. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The Holiday season is a time for loved ones to gather & celebrate and every one is full of good cheer. The Halls are all Decked out and Everywhere you turn are warm glowing lights and cheerful holiday decor! Everything is merry and bright including your venue!


3. Baby it’s cold outside! How about a Bonfire After Party? Cozy up with friends and family around a warm fire. Sharing stories, warming your toes and making memories the will last a lifetime.


4. Over the River and through the woods…Forget the limo or bus, transport your guests by Horse & Buggy! What a sweet treat it would be to give your guests a little holiday tour of the city, park or small town where your wedding is taking place.


5. Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells…There are so many sweet wintery details that add the perfect touch of whimsy to your wedding day style. Pinecones, jingle bells & candy canes are just a few things that add character and charm to your decor. When it comes to fashion, fuzzy sweaters, leather boots and oh so cozy scarves are a sweet way to add an unexpected touch to your bridal look.


So make a list and check it twice because there may be more reasons then you think to say “I do” in the snowy season!
