This post is part of our wedding flower alternatives series. We all know that fresh flowers are absolutely beautiful, but unfortunately, they can also be fairly expensive! If you still want the look of fresh flowers without the price tag, you can always go with silk or faux flowers. Using fake flowers means you could reuse them as centerpieces in your home or sell them to another bride and recoup some of your money.

Why you should choose silk flowers for your wedding:

You get the same look as real flowers.

  • They last forever so they are not a disposable expense.
  • You can re-use them in your home after the wedding.
  • You could resell them to another bride to get some of your investment back.
  • They are usually way cheaper than the real thing!
