We set ourselves apart from other floral companies by using high-end faux flowers that are just as beautiful as fresh. Our designers create custom arrangements, with a modern twist. And…by partnering with us you support eco-friendly practices. Why go faux? Here are ways we help the environment and you:
Approximately 90% of fresh flowers in the US are imported from South America - mostly Colombia and Ecuador. These farms rely heavily on chemical pesticides and fertilizers. A study in 2007 by the International Labor Rights Fund found that 20 percent of chemicals sprayed on Colombian flowers are illegal in the U.S. and in Europe, as they contribute to the contamination of soil and caused health problems for field workers. These same chemicals impact the surrounding flora and fauna, spreading by wind and contaminated water.
Allergies are nothing to mess around with! The last thing you need during photos is your grandma or best friend sneezing like crazy because they’re allergic to the flowers. With faux flowers, you have one less thing to worry about on your big day!
Most flowers sold in the US come from Colombia and Ecuador. They are transported by plane to the US and shipped in refrigerated trucks to their final destination. Faux flowers are shipped via ocean freight, typically from southeast Asia. It's estimated that ocean-freight shipping from China produces only one-twentieth the carbon output of air freight from South America! Plus, they have indefinite shelf life and don’t require additional refrigeration to keep them fresh.
Faux flowers will look amazing throughout your entire wedding day! You don’t have to worry about them wilting in the weather or slowly dying before your eyes. That means you’ll have photo-worthy florals from the first look through the last dance.
The beauty of faux flowers is that you can choose any flowers at any time of the year. So, your bouquet is based on your unique style and vision, rather than the season. (What a concept!) So, go wild and create the custom bouquet of your dreams!
Faux flowers have come a long way in the last 10 years, with real-touch blooms that make them look just as beautiful as fresh flowers. Plus, choosing silk flowers for your wedding is great way to be eco-friendly and budget conscious. One more reason to smile on your big day!
