Why should you select silk orchids instead of real orchids for your wedding? And why are they so popular? That is because of the many advantages artificial orchids have compared to real orchids.
It is almost impossible to see the difference between fake and real orchids, if you select a fist class product. The silk flowers have been made with much care, and real orchids have been studied closely to make the silk orchids look realistic. And you often do not have to pay extra for all that work.
Do you love an orchid from Papua New Guinea that only flower in March? Try to get one of those for your summer wedding. It is not easy; and certainly not cheap. Unless of course you look for a fake one. Then you can easily found it on the Internet, buy it and have it delivered in a few days. And the price will be much lower than for the real one.
Imagine that the whole decoration is based on pink. But on the wedding day florist tells you, that he can only get yellow orchids. You can avoid that catastrophe by selecting silk orchid arrangements instead. Then they can be ordered and delivered well in advance (no bad surprises on the big day).
Do you have an outdoor ceremony in the summer (or in the winter)? Heat or cold will make the real orchids wither. With silk faux orchids it is not a problem. They are very sturdy and can take both warm sunshine and cold ice.
Imagine the combination of your flower allergic uncle and a room full of orchids. It will be a sneezing and red eye disaster; unless you choose silk orchids for decoration. Then everybody will be safe (unless they are allergic to silk of course).
But the best part is probably that you can bring the silk orchids back home for memory that will last forever. Every time you look at the orchids, they will remind you of the big day.
There are a lot of reasons why silk orchids have become very popular at weddings. But you will probably only be happy, if they look realistic. And the way to make sure of that is to only buy first class silk orchids. You can find the largest (and cheapest) selection on the Internet.
