Now when people hear the word "artificial", the first thing that comes to mind are flowers that look plastic and not "real". Well, believe it or not, they do look like the real thing. Artificial flowers comes in many forms. This includes silk, paper/cloth, plastic, porcelain, clay and soap. The most popular, especially for weddings, is silk.

Here are some things to consider when choosing artificial flowers:

Silk flowers' cost is about half that of real flowers. So if you are on a tight budget, you may want to consider silk. If you go with a florist, they usually carry high quality silk flowers so the cost may equal that of real flowers. Check with them to see if they carry lower cost silk flowers.

If you are creative, you can even put your silk bouquet together yourself or have a creative friend do it for you. You can purchase them either at your local florist or handicraft/gift store. If purchasing from the handicraft/gift store, pay a bit more for the better quality silk flowers.
