How to Choose Artificial Plants for Your Wedding

The question has been popped – and now it's time to pop the question of floral arrangements! Wedding frenzy is real, but fret not - we're here to simplify picking out the perfect plants for the wedding.

What comes to mind when you imagine floral arrangements dripping with romance? Traditionally, red roses were the classic choice. There's just something about the deep crimson hue and the sensual velvet texture of a rose that captivates us. But times have evolved, and now, many are opting for distinctive plant arrangements to adorn their wedding tables. In fact, an increasing number of couples are embracing artificial plants to elevate their wedding aesthetics, and for good reason.

Before we delve into how to choose the perfect artificial plants for your wedding, let's debunk the primary myth about fake plants: the misconception that fake equals tacky.

Sure, back in the 80s, artificial florals might have been cringe-worthy, but fast forward to 2024, and we've made significant strides in creating realistic textures and colours for faux florals. From lifelike textured petals to intricately detailed plastic leaves, modern artificial plants closely mimic the real deal. Rest assured, we would never recommend tacky products for one of the most significant days of your life. Trust us on that!

Let’s dive in, shall we?

7 Things to Consider When Choosing Artificial Plants for Weddings

1. Consider Your Theme

Just as you would with a florist, consider the style and vibe of your nuptials. Are you aiming for whimsical or vintage charm? Embracing a contemporary or rustic feel? Opting for traditional elegance or bohemian flair? Whatever theme you choose, there are artificial plants that can complement and enhance your chosen aesthetic perfectly.

2. Quality, Quality, Quality!

As we mentioned, artificial plants have really upped their game in quality. But not all fakes are worthy of your wedding day. Look for ones made of durable materials that truly mimic real foliage. After all, on your big day, every detail should make your heart flutter!

3. Choose a Variety of Plants

You and your beloved don’t have to be the only ones building a new family unit - become a matchmaker for various artificial plants to design stunning bouquets, table arrangements, and all-around decor. Combine different types of foliage, from ferns and succulents to eucalyptus and flowers, to create a lush and vibrant atmosphere that will leave everyone in awe.

4. Bear in Mind Size And Scale

Depending on the size of your wedding venue, choosing plants that complement the space will make all the difference. The beauty of artificial floral arrangements is that you can have them custom-made! Faux floral arrangements can be specially made to fit any style or theme, so you don't have to worry about compromising your vision due to space constraints.

5. Plant Maintenance

Unlike those delicate red roses that may wilt, artificial plants offer durability and reliability. One major advantage of choosing artificial plants is their low maintenance. While they may require occasional cleaning or dusting to maintain their luscious appearance, they'll remain perfect throughout your wedding day, ensuring lasting beauty without any worry of drooping or wilting mid-ceremony.

6. Rental Options

An extremely cost-effective option for flower and plant arrangements for your big day is renting designs. Whether you opt for pre-designed and ready-to-go arrangements or individual pieces to customize, renting offers flexibility without the commitment of owning a large array of plants for a one-time occasion.

7. Personalize With Accents 

Add your own personal flair to any plant arrangement by incorporating accents such as ribbons, bows, or even twinkling LED lights. It's the small details that truly elevate your wedding aesthetic, and these touches will seamlessly tie the plants into your overall wedding decor, making your special day even more magical.
