Fresh flowers aren't the only flowers you can have for your big day. These days, you can ask for wedding bouquets of silk flowers. Especially if you've got an interesting and quite complicated flower arrangement that you want to have for your bridal bouquet, you can look for a flower shop that uses silk flowers.
A bridal bouquet that looks amazing is the composite flower design. You'd think that this type has been around for only a few years, but it actually dates back to the early 20th century. While it is a complicated arrangement, it was initially created for those brides who were working on a minimal budget. Instead of using whole flowers, this design uses loose petals that are wired together to create one big flower. This is why silk flowers are more practical for this design. Fresh flower petals are too delicate to wire together, while flower petals made of silk are guaranteed to still look great even after wiring. Satin or organza ribbons are used as accents and finishing materials for this bouquet. Sometimes, indigenous materials are also used as accents to give the arrangement an exotic flavor.
The Biedermeier design is another popular arrangement for wedding bouquets of silk flowers. This style of arranging a bouquet consists of flowers of different types or colors. Flowers of one type or color are wired together tightly to create a circle or a core. Flowers of another type or color are wired tightly around the core of flowers previously made. Then another ring of flowers of a type or color different from the core and the first ring is made. This is usually chosen for weddings that use a variety of colors, such as those with summer and casual themes.
Another interesting bouquet design that's become popular recently is the fan bouquet. With the rise in popularity of Asian and vintage themes, this flower arrangement has become the choice of brides who want something different yet still romantic and elegant. This bouquet starts with a fan with a skeleton made of wood, bamboo or plastic. The skeleton is covered with a lacy fabric and is creatively finished with flowers and ribbons. This is another tricky thing to create, so silk flowers are sometimes used.
There are many other creative and complicated designs for wedding flower arrangements. Wedding bouquets of silk flowers are great for those who don't want to compromise the look that they have in their minds.
