Are you hammering out the details of your upcoming wedding? Then you’ve probably already realized that there are many of them — an overwhelming amount, even. From the centerpieces to the wedding cake, lots of choices must be made before you can get down that aisle. One of the most important, perhaps, is what type of flowers you’ll forever associate with your wedding day. And if you’re interested in an eco-friendly alternative to freshly cut flowers, consider silk flower bouquets. Faux blooms have recently increased in popularity not just because they’re a more sustainable choice, but also because they offer more flexibility and consistent quality.
Silk flower bouquets offer brides and grooms advantages that cannot be found in fresh flowers. Here we name a few:
With so many options out there for floral arrangements, you certainly have an endless array of choices for your big day. But when you choose silk flowers, you cut down on the waste of freshly cut blooms.
Because faux flowers don’t have a shelf life, they can be boxed up and placed on ships, which produce far fewer emissions than airplanes. Reusability is an important factor in living sustainably, and it’s pretty obvious that faux flowers are a clear winner in this category. The longer you use your artificial arrangements in lieu of live plants, the more positive impact they will have on your well-being and the reduction of your carbon footprint.
