It’s almost impossible to host a wedding without feeling a strain on your budget, and it’s particularly hard to order fresh wedding flowers without feeling the pinch. For example, a lovely bouquet of roses, orchids and gardenias runs upwards of $120!
As a result, some brides choose to order silk flowers instead of changing their flower choice or downgrading the size of their bouquet. Not only will they often save money with this option, they can also keep the bouquet long after the ceremony is over. Many silk or velvet bouquets even look quite realistic.
But, then again, they aren’t fresh flowers and they certainly aren’t traditional. What do you think? Do silk wedding flowers make you want to rant or rave?
