Nothing adds a pop of colour to your wedding day quite like your bouquet. Bridal and bridesmaid bouquets are gorgeous focal pieces that are also a memento of your big day. For most brides, floral wedding bouquets are a must-have but, unfortunately, they don’t last long. You spend all this money on a piece that is so beautiful you wish you could keep it forever, but within a few days or even hours on a very hot day, this work of art has wilted, shriveled up, and turned brown. That beautiful symbol of your wedding day, gone forever.
Your bridal bouquet should be a keepsake from your wedding the same way your guestbook, jewellery, or other items will remind you of your wedding day for years to come. You can dry or press your wedding flowers to save them, but the only way to guarantee your bouquet looks the same as at your wedding and every anniversary is to opt for silk flowers.
Artificial flowers are the best way to keep your bouquet as beautiful and pristine after your wedding as it was the day you got married. The best part is, no one will know they weren’t picked from the ground that morning! Silk flowers are a long-lasting alternative for wedding day décor, and the best part is, they can be incorporated into every floral facet of your wedding—from matching bridesmaids posies, buttonholes, corsages and cake toppers, the possibilities are endless! Any gorgeous arrangement you choose can be passed on to future generations, making it the perfect way to incorporate your parents’ wedding memories into your own without having to wear your mum’s wedding dress.
If you want the money you spend on your bouquet to be a lasting investment and not just rot away and be thrown away shortly after your wedding, you can’t go wrong with a stunning, silk bouquet.
And for that extra little touch, why not add one of our silver year charms to remind you of the special day even more.
