What should be included:
  • A reputable silk floral designer will sell wedding bouquets in a variety of sizes and price ranges. Ask about small, medium and large bouquets (round or cascading styles), as well as different styles of centerpieces, cake flowers and pew flowers.
Additional costs:
  • Online orders may incur shipping charges of up to $20. Check with the silk flowers vendor to see if shipping is included.
Discounts:
  • Afloral[2] gives free shipping with orders over $179, and silk boutonnieres are a bargain, priced from $1 to $4.

  • If given plenty of lead time, silk flowers vendors can fulfill orders long before the wedding day, saving the last-minute duties that come with using fresh flowers. The Knot[3] lists some additional pros and cons of using silk wedding flowers.
  • When shopping in the higher price range, look for a florist that carries silk flowers that look like actual blooms. A tip is to browse the floral designer's portfolio to determine how realistic their bouquets look on film.
  • Silk Specialties[4] carries silk wedding flowers in a variety of styles to match most price ranges.
