Silk Plants

Silk plants can make excellent decorations for both the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. Those who are planning their wedding may find that fresh flowers are simply too hard to plan for and very expensive. On the other hand, silk plants are far more affordable and they can be an ideal choice for virtually any type of ceremony. In addition, they allow you to have something tangible to remember your special day by or even to give to those special people who made your day perfect.

Wedding Ceremony Flowers

Silk plants work very well throughout the wedding ceremony. They can be in use in your bouquet, for example. They can also be used to adorn the pews or rows of chairs that your guests will sit in while they watch you say your "I do's." One of the best ways to use a silk plant on this special day is on the altar or stage where you will be saying your vows. Here, silk plants can look amazing and yet still be very affordable. Some people end up donating them to the church to use as decoration, but they can also be taken home to be used for various decorations within the home.

Wedding Reception Flowers

For the wedding reception, silk flowers again can come into play and really stand out in terms of beauty and design. They will look great on the tables your guests will sit at. In addition, you can use them on the receiving table, gift table, wedding cake table and even on the main table where you will sit. Check with the reception hall to determine what your options are in using silk plants in this way.

For the most part, anyone can benefit from the use of silk plants throughout their wedding. This is one of the least expensive methods to having a beautiful wedding day without having to pay the extra costs for real flowers. Artificial flowers look just as beautiful but reduce costs by as much as 80 percent. They can be in use in virtually any area of your wedding design, to bring color to the event.
