Every woman imagines her wedding day as perfection – there is the wedding dress, the lovely entourage, the reception and her bouquet. The wedding bouquet may be the central element to the whole event. The theme is carried further by the flowers decorating almost everything during the wedding, from flowers along the aisle, to the flowers at the reception. The wedding practically blooms flowers all around.
A wedding is a celebration of life, and the union of two people. It is a community celebration as well, with friends, colleagues, and relatives invited to the affair, for the newly wedded to couple to share in their happiness, and for the guests to witness the event. A wedding is not truly a wedding unless there is the love of friends and family around the couple. Without it, it becomes a piece of legal document waiting to be shared and announced to the world.
The ceremony itself is full of symbolisms and meaning. The main theme is usually white symbolizing purity of purpose and love. The flowers symbolize the new beginning of spring. The ring symbolizes never-ending bonds and a love that is meant to be forever. The doves are for the couple that are bound for life.
Traditionally, flowers are placed everywhere at a wedding. This means a lot of flowers. For practicality’s sake, it would be better to use artificial flowers for some of the spaces. Silk wedding flowerscan be as great looking as fresh flowers, and they can be cheaper as well. The beauty of artificial wedding flowers is in the placement. With properly placed silk wedding flowers, volume could be achieved, while keeping the costs lower. These could be placed at mantle pieces, along the aisles during the ceremony, at the background or along walls of the reception. Whenever there is no need to put fresh flowers, the artificial flowers can do.
