Silk Flower Wedding Bouquets

Updated on September 21, 2014

Silk Flower Wedding Bouquets

Being in the wedding industry, I find that there are many reasons why you should consider having a silk flower bouquet for your wedding.

Here are some of the advantages of having a bouquet of these beautiful flowers that have such a natural look

- they keep for a long time

- they may be more available in the winter

- they are great for brides with allergies

- they are often less expensive than natural flower bouquets.

So, take a look at these beautiful bridal bouquets of floral silk flowers that I've suggested for you and be surprised at how natural they look

The Silk Floral Industry Has Evolved

You may not know this, but the silk floral industry has come a long way since the days of the fake and plastic looking artificial flowers. Imagine holding a bouquet of "plastic" flowers; not a very appetizing thought.

Now brides and their entourage can buy absolutely beautiful silk wedding bouquets that appear very much like real flowers in most every way. Upgrades to the basic variety are known by names like natural touch, soft touch or real touch. These flowers even have the feel of natural flower petals and often a natural aroma as well!

"Silk" Flowers are Great for the Bride with Flower Allergies

A bride that has flower allergies should consider holding a bouquet of these natural-like flowers. She can add scent oil if she wishes, for that delicate fresh flower aroma.

The Quality of Silk Flowers in Your Bouquet

I remember the "artificial flowers" that were available years ago, Take heart as modern silk flowers and their cousins, used in wedding bouquets and other floral arrangements, are much more realistic and natural looking.

These bouquets, assembled by professionals just as natural flower arrangements, are typically of a better quality than what you would find in your neighborhood craft store.

Styles, Sizes, Flowers in a Silk Wedding Bouquet

Your silk wedding bouquet is available in all the styles of natural bouquets. Holding a traditional round or a cascading bridal bouquet in front or long floral sprays in the crook of your arm are all possibilities for brides.

And you don't need to be either underwhelmed or overwhelmed by your flowers, as silk bouquets come in many sizes. Size your bouquet depending on the embellishments or simplicity of your wedding dress.

So many types of flowers are available. The bridal flower collection will have stargazers, orchids, roses, calla lilies, baby's breath, and other popular flowers in a wide variety of colors, from which you can choose. Or you can custom design the bouquet arrangement that you want for your wedding. Many types of natural looking greenery will fill out your bouquet.

The formality and season of your wedding, your personal taste and whether it is held indoors or outdoors are all factors that will affect the flowers, colors, and style of the bouquet you select.

Attention to Detail in Silk Flower Bouquets

The professional who arrange your silk flowers may wrap your stems with satin ribbon in the color of your choice or in traditional white or ivory.

The ribbons may be either French braided or wound in a spiral or crisscrossed ballet-style. Plus, you may request that the stems are showing or are totally covered by the ribbon. So, your bouquet will be created with all the love and tenderness of a florist creating a natural flower bouquet.

Silk Bouquets and Flowers for the Rest of the Wedding Party

Of course the bride will have a beautiful bouquet. Yet the rest of the wedding party can have beautiful and affordable bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages too. Consider:

Bridesmaids - Bouquets for the bridesmaids can complement or be a smaller version of the bride's bouquet. Their bouquets may also coordinate with their own gowns.

The Gentlemen - Flower boutonnieres for the gentlemen in the wedding party will look quite spiffy

Mothers and Grandmothers - Corsages in floral silk, for the mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom will make them feel honored and special.

Below, I've shown a few packages that have a bouquet for the bride as well as appropriate flowers for the rest of the wedding party.

Have You Thought About Floral Bling?

Your bridal flowers can be enhanced with "bling" too! That is, you can have faux jewels, seashells (for your beach wedding), butterflies, dragonflies, buttons and other touches added.

Silk Flower Toss Bouquets - These are the flowers that the bride customarily tosses to the single women at her wedding

Below I show a variety of colors for toss-bouquets.

The choice of white, lavender, light blue, pink and red, will go with many wedding color schemes. The purple one is adorned with crystal bling to be extra dazzling

What About Toss Bouquets?

Yes, your wedding bouquet can be ordered along with a toss bouquet. This allows the bride to keep her flowers and still follow the custom of tossing her bouquet at the wedding.

The toss bouquet is for the bride to throw during the wedding to all the single women attending the wedding, according to custom. This woman who catches the bouquet is then supposed to be the next girl to get married.

Some companies will give you a free toss bouquet if your purchase value is high enough. Or you can always order a separate bouquet to toss to the bachelorettes.

Custom Designed Silk Wedding Bouquets

If you see a silk bridal bouquet here or in a catalog that you just love, then order it.

Otherwise, if you are set on a custom designed bouquet, then discuss your palette and wedding theme, possible selection and arrangement of flowers as well as the use of "bling", with your floral consultant. They will offer tips as to what may be appropriate and look the best in your bouquet based on your wedding theme, dress, colors and budget.

Looking at many photographs of bouquets will help you narrow down the type of bouquet that you desire. If there is a similar style in the catalog or repertoire of the silk bouquet design company, your design consultant will usually be happy to create your perfect bouquet from that style or from a mere concept. In either case, your bouquet will be created by hand, with love, just for you.

      I had my wedding bouquet made from silk flowers in 1987. I still have it and it is still good. I think using silk is fine. It seems like there is such a large selection of beautiful and realistic looking flowers out there.
