  1. Choosing silk flowers will mean you can have your flowers when it suits you and this is perfect if you are travelling overseas or interstate for a destination wedding.
  2. Silk flowers won’t wilt in the heat like fresh flowers. This is a big plus when your getting married in the extreme heat. There are a variety of fresh flowers which are in season in the warmer months, but they aren’t the longest lasting. In all this only adds more stress to the bride knowing that her favourite flowers which have cost so much are not going to see the day out. Hydrangeas are one good example of this.
  3. Flower availability is often a problem for different times of the year. Take Christmas holidays and Valentine’s Day periods. Supply and demand can force the price of fresh flowers up and the biggest problem of whether they will be easy to source can break a brides heart when she has her heart set on a particular flower. By choosing artificial flowers of the same variety, this will easily fix the problem. If you still actively want to have fresh flowers for your wedding day, why not include both fresh and silk.  Adelaide silk flowers are also popular.
  4.  Allergy sufferers will love silk flowers. This means that not only a bride can carry flowers without suffering, but a silk arrangement is also the ideal gift to give a loved one who can’t handle fresh flowers with their pollens.
