I must say I was a little hesitant on ordering silk wedding flowers and especially online. I ordered them and I was totally impressed at how beautiful they were. They really don't look like fake flowers at all! They were absolutely beautiful and the color was perfect! The silk bouquets were better than I ever thought they would be. Thanks so much! I will definitely tell friends about your website!
Flowers for the fitting: Plan to make one of your practice bouquets for the day you'll have your wedding gown fitting. Take the bouquet with you and critically evaluate the size, shape, length of stems, colors, and the style of your dress. Get the bridesmaids together at the same time. Make a note of the changes required to make them perfect. If some of the flowers don't look right (such as daisies with a silk beaded gown), make note of the changes needed. Confirm size, shape, and colors, too.
My love story with wedding flowers started in college when I took a basic floral design class then found myself volunteering at the campus flower shop. I studied floral design the hands-on way for several years - learning every aspect of wedding design. When I graduated, I opened my own little specialty bridal flower shop. And in the late 1990’s, I switched over to a new marketplace – the internet. And TheBridesBouquet.com was born online in 1999. The early years of selling online were kind of crazy and almost like the wild west. It is hard to believe that 20 years have passed and now buying online is what everyone does, but it wasn’t always that way.
Myrtle is one of the most popular types of greenery because of the variety of ways that it can be used. It has long stems which are lined with glossy leaves. The thick foliage that this creates looks best in floral centerpieces. It also exudes a sweet fragrance that makes it perfect for home decor. The myrtle is a representation of love and for that reason is often found in wedding arrangements as well.

A dedicated work area: To prepare your wedding flowers, whether you have small arrangements or large ones, you'll need an area dedicated to the task.

I’m sure lots of you didn’t know that “seasonality” is a proper word, but it’s a common phrase in the flower industry. We use it to describe flower varieties that have very seasonal growing patterns, which you definitely need to think about when choosing certain flowers. For instance, peonies have a very sporadic growing season, which is why they are insanely expensive at certain times of the year and not available in hot summer months. On the other hand, hydrangea are grown in green houses all year-round which makes them less costly because they are more readily available. Basically, when seasonal flowers are in season they are the best quality and most affordable!

More flowers are in bloom on the summer solstice than on any other day of the year, and summer brides can capitalize on this floral bounty with the wide range of fragrant and affordable wedding flowers available.

When selecting your wedding celebration arrangement, you are not restricted to fresh flowers. Silk blossoms that are made today are produced to make sure that they look really similar to fresh flowers. If you hadn't thought about using silk blossoms for your wedding event bouquet, you could want to give them a doubt. Not just will you save money, you will not need to bother with the flowers wilting as well as protecting the blossoms is a less unpleasant process.
Practice, practice, practice: No matter how simple your plan or how confident you might feel, plan to do at least one (preferably two) practice run. Purchase the flowers you've selected to construct one centerpiece and one bouquet and put them together. Keep track of how long it takes to prepare that one, then multiply the time by how many you'll need to make. This will give you a great idea of how much time you'll need to dedicate to the flowers when the big day arrives. You might find that you've bought more flowers than you need or that you need a fuller bow, requiring more ribbon. This is a better time to realize these things than on the wedding day.
