There will always be a fight between a Real Flowers and Fake Flowers brides.
We all come from different communities with unique traditions.
I came from a country where no one uses fake flowers for weddings. Never. I mean never ever.
It`s a no brainer, we just don`t make this choice. And it`s only fresh flower bouquets. Always.
So here are my Pros to use real, fresh flowers for your special day:
1. Unique look – Every real flower is unique in its own way. The size, shape, shade, move and look completely different from very best manufactured bloom. No florist can ever make the same bouquet twice just because there is no identical flowers unless they are fake.
2. Aroma – There is no need to say twice. Nothing can compare with the aroma of the real flowers. Could you imagine a reception filled with scent of fresh roses, freesias and peonies?
I can, mine was.
3. Natural – Big and warm hug to Eco Brides! It`s just natural to have an environmentally-friendly bouquet in your hands. Ability to compost them minimizing our footprint on the Earth is a huge Yes from me. Go green
4. Memorabilia – Have you ever thought about using flowers or foliage from the garden grown by your lovely Nanna? Bouquet with a soul.
5. Emotions – Personally, I love a new trend of giving away the wedding flowers to the hospitals and care homes. There is a double use for real flowers to make people smile and enjoy a little gift.
6. Modern – Real flowers are always in trend.
7. And my favourite one – Just Because
And don`t forget, your bouquet will be on every photo photographer takes. Real bouquet only for your day, reflects only your style and character, your passion and drive!
So make sure there is Real Smiles, Real Flowers and Real Love.
