When it comes to flowers for your wedding, there are so many options. One that you may not think have thought of are permanent botanicals. You may have heard of this option called “silk” or “fake” flowers, but permanent botanicals may be the perfect choice for your wedding.
To be honest, in the past, we haven’t been fans of arrangements that use these types of flowers. The reason is they are often thrown together and those we’ve seen didn’t use the very good quality of flowers. Leave it to Andie Muller of Events by The Flower Studio to change our minds!!
Andie is a local master florist known for her beautiful work with real flowers. When the coronavirus hit and couples were scrambling to change their wedding plans, many still wanted to do a small ceremony with a celebration later. For these smaller ceremonies, they wanted to use flowers but didn’t want to spend a lot as most didn’t have the room in their wedding budgets.
With this is mind, Andie created her permanent botanical options. Using her incredible design skills and high quality permanent botanicals, she has provided couples with another great option for their wedding flowers that doesn’t have to give up style and design.
Reasons Permanent Botanicals May Be Right For Your Wedding
How do you know if permanent botanicals will work for your wedding? Here are some things to consider.
As we mentioned before, there are many options when select fresh flowers for your wedding. Types and availability are a few of the reasons that fresh flowers cost what they do. However, Events by The Flower Studio has options for the whole wedding party with personal flowers for around $300. If you are running on a tight budget or just doing a small ceremony until you have your wedding due to COVID-19, permanent botanticals can help with that.
Looks Like Real Flowers
The permanent botanicals that Andie at Events by The Flower Studio uses are impressive and look like real flowers. If flowers are not a priority wedding and you just need “to hold” something, this may be perfect for your wedding.
More Color Options
There are some colors that may not be available in fresh flowers. If you have your heart set on including certain colors, such as navy blue or Tiffany Blue, permanent botanicals will give you the opportunity to include these in your flowers as the color choices are more abundant.
More About the Events at The Flower Studio’s Permanent Botanical Collections from Andie Muller, Owner and Master Florist:
I work primarily with fresh flowers. Some permanent here and there, but never pushed. The Blush Collection came to my mind during the pandemic. I have seen so many people postponing and canceling their weddings because of the COVID, but then again, they still want to celebrate without spending much. So, I offered to one of the couples that inquired about my work if they were open for permanent botanical rentals because that would be enough to cover all their needs within their budget. They agreed and that is how these options started.
I really enjoy seeing beautiful arrangements being created with flowers that a lot of people dislike. Most people know them as “fake flowers” or “silk flowers”. However, as a professional florist, I can take these and create something that couples love.
This was my first ever styled shoot that I organized/led. After 7 years doing weddings and having so many styled shoots with other people’s ideas/ inspirations, I decided to have one for my first ever Permanent Botanical Collection. The vendor team did amazing and Daniella of Koontz Photography captured the shoot beautifully.
