I am super lucky that I get to witness some incredible ceremony set-ups and some amazing decor, but recently I have seen a real surge in the demand for artificial floral arrangements and 'alternative' bouquets too.
Whilst there is certainly something wonderful about the aroma of a fresh bloom, when using flowers in your decor at a wedding or event, there are increasing numbers of couples that are opting for the more eco-friendly alternatives.
I chatted Emily, Director of Faux Bloom to understand more about this growing part of the wedding and events industry, and to learn more about the pros of going faux.
Over to you Emily. . . .
"Faux Bloom is a unique company providing an extremely versatile, more eco-friendly alternative to fresh floristry.
We are a local, friendly team of creatives who simply love what we do, from creating floral backdrops, arranging bouquets to installing our floral arches, preparation, professionalism & attention to detail is our focus on every project.
We always feel immense pride in hearing such frequent positive comments on how natural our arrangements look.
Over the years we have been able to source the very best artificial flowers; our blooms are extremely natural in design with ‘real touch’ orchids & wax leaf botanicals.
Our unique floral hire option maximises your wedding budget, creating exciting opportunities to add extra styling details that you may otherwise not have been able to afford."
The majority of clients who are drawn to us often admit they had not realised that our flowers were artificial.
