Beauty - I design all of my florals with high-end, New Generation Silk Flowers. These aren't the flowers you remember seeing on your Grandma's kitchen table! New Generation Silk flowers are the airbrushed makeup of the floral world, providing unequaled beauty from every angle and richer and brighter hues than real flowers.
Cost - The average cost of weddings in the US hit $35,329 in 2016, with a range of $2,500 to over $3,500 of that spent on wedding flowers!* I don’t believe that brides should have to spend this much on florals. By working with silks in an independent small business setting, I can eliminate the mark-ups of large florists since I don’t require design specialists, refrigeration, or day-of delivery. On average, I am able to offer identical wedding packages at close to half the cost of live florals.
*According to a study of 13,000 US brides conducted by TheKnot.com.
Non-Seasonal - Want a Christmas in July wedding? What about tulips in the winter? Many flowers are seasonal and become nearly impossible to purchase off season. Some florists can special order off-season, but this is very expensive. Silks are the perfect solution; you can get your favorite flower in any season!
Allergies - Many people (like me!) have allergies to fresh flowers. Silk flowers give you the beautiful look you want but save you from having watery eyes, sneezing, and a stuffy nose on your special day!
No Wilting & Flexible Delivery - During the hot summer months it is extremely difficult to keep fresh flowers from wilting, and regardless of temperature, many fresh flowers have a very small window before they start to wilt, which is why florists deliver them as close to the ceremony time as possible. With silks, you don’t have to worry about keeping them cool or in water, so they can be delivered whenever the bride finds it convenient.
Bees/Wasps - Are you having an outdoor ceremony? What about pictures in the park? If you are one of those brides who hates bees, silks were made just for you! Although they look real, pesky bees and other insects won’t be attracted to them.
Advanced Orders - There is a lot of commotion on your wedding day--people in, people out, deliveries here, deliveries there--it's a crazy day! And, if the florist is late, or the flowers were not what you expected, this could put a damper on your wedding day. Receiving your flowers in advance helps with that stress.
No Need to Preserve - When you have your wedding flowers preserved, they are actually taken apart and rebuilt to have a flat side so that they can be placed in a frame. With silk bouquets, there is no need for that service and you get to keep your flowers just the way they were on your special day.
