Your wedding day is a day of unforgettable memories. One of biggest aspects of your wedding is selecting the perfect floral arrangements. While fresh flowers have long been the go to for weddings, artificial flowers have been steadily gaining popularity. In this blog, we’ll explore the reasons why choosing artificial flowers over fresh blooms might be the best decision for your special day.


Artificial flowers offer a huge variety of colours, shapes, and sizes. This is particularly helpful if you have a specific colour scheme or unique floral vision in mind for your wedding. With artificial flowers, you can find blooms that perfectly match your theme, whether it’s an elegant and classic white wedding or a vibrant and eclectic celebration.


Unlike fresh flowers that can wilt and lose their gorgeousness over the course of a long wedding day, artificial flowers remain as beautiful at the end of the night as they were at the beginning. You won’t need to worry about your floral arrangements looking tired or drooping in your wedding photos, ensuring your memories are captured in all their glory.


For some, allergies can put a huge damper on the celebration. The pollen in fresh flowers can trigger sneezing, itching, and other discomforts for guests and even the bridal party. Let’s face it, no one was a sneezing groom or a bridesmaid with streaming, sore eyes! Artificial flowers, however, are hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice if you or your guests have allergies.


Weddings can be expensive, and whilst planning every penny counts. Artificial flowers are typically more cost-effective than fresh blooms, allowing you to allocate your budget to other important aspects of your wedding. For example, our moongates are £300 to hire, (or included in your package) to have a moongate as full as our artificial, you would be looking at over double this.

No Seasonal Limitations:

Artificial flowers aren’t bound by seasons. Regardless of when you’re getting married, you can find the flowers you desire. This is particularly beneficial if you’re planning a wedding in the off-season or if you have your heart set on a specific flower that may not be in bloom at the time of your wedding.

Eco-Friendly Option:

If you’re environmentally conscious, artificial flowers can be a more sustainable choice. They don’t require the resources used in cultivating and transporting fresh flowers, which often have a significant carbon footprint. By opting for artificial flowers, you can reduce your wedding’s impact on the environment.

While fresh flowers undeniably possess a certain charm and are absolutely gorgeous, artificial flowers offer numerous advantages that make them a compelling choice for your wedding day. Their endless variety, durability, allergy-friendliness, cost-effectiveness, longevity, and freedom from seasonal limitations make them an attractive option.

Ultimately, the decision between fresh and artificial flowers comes down to personal preference, but considering the benefits of artificial flowers can help you make an informed choice that suits your style, budget, and vision for your wedding day.
