Helpful tips to convince your loved one to go faux over fresh
We know all too well the stress of planning a wedding. There are so many decisions to make and oftentimes many stakeholders. For many couples, parents and grandparents (sometimes footing the bill) want to provide say-so in major wedding decisions. Let’s imagine the wedding planning has commenced and you're faced with the tough decision of which wedding flower vendor to select. Although fresh flowers are the traditional selection, the budget or waste might not be something that feels right for you. And that’s OK! Premium silk flowers are just as beautiful and provide so many advantages over fresh flowers. But if your family and friends have different options on fresh vs. faux, how will you open the minds of your loved ones to what premium silk flowers have to offer?
A lot of people won’t believe it until they see it, but trust us when we say, our blooms are so close to the real deal that even wedding photographers and guests have a hard time believing our blooms don’t need to be kept from wilting. Just take a look at our real bride reviews! And there are many ways to introduce silk flowers to your family to increase their comfort level and support your decision to go faux.
