Real vs artificial flowers, what to use in a wedding
When deciding between real and artificial flowers for a wedding, there are several factors to consider. Here are some points to help you make an informed decision:
Appearance: Real flowers have a natural beauty and fragrance that can be hard to replicate with artificial flowers. They offer a delicate and authentic touch to wedding décor. Artificial flowers have improved significantly in recent years and can look quite realistic, but they may still lack the organic charm of real blooms.
Cost: Artificial flowers are generally more cost-effective than real flowers. Real flowers can be expensive, especially if you choose rare or out-of-season blooms. Artificial flowers, on the other hand, can be reused or resold after the wedding, providing a better long-term value.
Durability: Real flowers are perishable and delicate. They can wilt or lose petals if exposed to heat or not properly cared for. Artificial flowers are more durable and can withstand various environmental conditions without losing their appearance. They also won't trigger allergies for individuals sensitive to pollen.
Availability: Real flowers are subject to seasonal availability and may be limited in certain colors or types during specific times of the year. Artificial flowers are not constrained by seasonality and can be obtained in any color or variety at any time.
Convenience: Real flowers need to be arranged shortly before the event, which can add to the wedding day's stress. Artificial flowers can be prepared well in advance, allowing you to plan and organize without the last-minute rush. They also require minimal maintenance during the event.
Sentimental value: Some individuals appreciate the symbolism and transience of real flowers, finding them more romantic and sentimental for their special day. Others may prefer artificial flowers as a lasting keepsake that can be cherished long after the wedding.
Allergies: Some individuals may have allergies to pollen or certain flowers. Real flowers release pollen, which can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Artificial flowers, being synthetic, do not produce pollen and are a good option for those with allergies or sensitivities.
Environmental impact: Real flowers, especially those sourced from far away or grown using intensive farming practices, can have a significant carbon footprint due to transportation and chemical use. Artificial flowers are generally made from materials like silk or plastic, which have their own environmental impact during production. However, they can be reused or repurposed for future events.
Ultimately, the choice between real and artificial flowers depends on your personal preferences, budget, and the specific requirements of your wedding. You can also consider using a combination of both, incorporating real flowers for bouquets or key focal points while using artificial flowers for decorative arrangements or to ensure the longevity of certain arrangements.
Many weddings incorporate a combination of real and artificial flowers. For example, you could use real flowers for the bridal bouquet and select key floral arrangements, while opting for artificial flowers for centerpieces or venue decorations. This hybrid approach allows you to strike a balance between aesthetics, practicality, and budget.
Remember to discuss your preferences with a professional florist who can provide expert advice based on your specific needs and desires.
