White silk wedding bouquets

White and green wedding bouquets

These beautiful white artificial bouquets are ready for the Lanes Wedding Fair on 1st March, organised by When We Wed.

Whilst placing the bouquets on the windowsill for this photo I dropped the bridesmaid’s bouquet right on it’s head! If it had been made of real flowers it would have been a total disaster, with crushed petals and broken heads. But the artificial flowers just bounced and carried on looking perfect 🙂

Bridal bouquet of ivory roses, Lily-of-the-valley, apple blossom, Freesia and Tweedia with fern leaves. Bridesmaid’s bouquet of ivory roses, Lily-of-the-valley and Tweedia with fern leaves, and small child’s bouquet of rose buds, apple blossom and ferns.

There will also be matching buttonholes and table arrangements on display at the wedding fair.

I’m looking forward to chatting to lots of lovely couples about their wedding flower dreams and showing them just how beautiful silk flowers can be (and robust!).

Sunny silk wedding bouquet

Sunny silk wedding bouquet

The sun is shining and from my kitchen window I can see hazel catkins swaying in the gentle breeze against the clear blue sky and the first daffodils are starting to appear in my garden. It’s a lovely day, spring like, though we could still see proper winter weather for many weeks to come yet.

So on this sunny day I decided my blog and social media needed a little sunshine too!

I made this bouquet a few years ago as a wedding fair display sample. It contains artificial hazel catkins and leaves, yellow daffodils, tulips and ranunculus, with a yellow paper detail.

The bouquet and matching buttonhole caught Emma and Neil’s eye at the wedding fair and they ordered them along with four smaller bridesmaids bouquets and eight buttonholes. Although their wedding was in the middle of summer they still loved the spring flowers and just replaced the tulips with buttercups and a few yellow daisies. You can see more photos on the Real Weddings page.

The mixture of spring flowers and foliage with summer flowers looked lovely and only possible because artificial flowers are available all year round, allowing you to have whatever flower and colour you like no matter the season.
