A bride's bouquet is one of the most important aspects of her wedding day. It not only adds beauty and elegance to her overall look, but it also has a special meaning. Traditionally, flowers have always been associated with changing seasons. For a bride, carrying a bouquet on her big day is a way of representing new beginnings, hope, and happiness. The only downside to traditional flowers is that they're often expensive and can wilt quickly. And, let's be honest, they're not exactly eco-friendly. This is where wood flower bouquets come in.
Wood flower bouquets are the perfect solution for brides who want all the beauty of fresh flowers without the hassle or expense. Plus, they last forever! If you're looking for something beautiful yet practical and still one-of-a-kind, wood flower bouquets are the way to go. Here's everything you need to know.
What Are Wood Flower Bouquets?
Sola (or "shola") wood flowers are made from a marshy plant scientifically known as Aeschynomene aspera. They're lightweight and sturdier than real flowers but not as rigid as one might think. Wood flower bouquet petals are actually quite soft to the touch, making them incredibly appealing as bridal bouquet substitutes. The natural color is white, but they can be dyed any color you like. Each wood flower is handcrafted and then preserved in a way that allows it to retain its shape and color for years to come.
Wood flowers are often mistaken for real ones, but there are a few key differences. For starters, wood flowers don't have any pollen. This makes them ideal for people with allergies. They also don't require any water or sunlight, so you never have to worry about them wilting or dying on you. And, since they're made from wood, they're completely biodegradable!
In terms of cost, wood flowers are often more affordable than their fresh counterparts. With wood flower bouquets for your bridal party, you can experience huge savings on wedding day floral arrangements, which frees up your budget for other exciting aspects of your wedding day or your new life as a married couple.
Why Brides Choose Wood Flower Bouquets
There are many reasons why wood flower bouquets have become a popular choice for brides, particularly in recent years. Here are just a few of the benefits:
This is probably the most obvious reason, but it's worth mentioning. Wood flowers really are absolutely stunning. They're most commonly chosen for their natural, rustic beauty, but they can also be made to look quite elegant and sophisticated. No matter what your wedding style or theme is, wood flower bouquets can be made to complement it perfectly. They come in an excellent variety of shapes and sizes, so you're sure to find the perfect ones to suit your vision. And, since they can be dyed any color, you have complete control over how they look.
As we mentioned, wood flowers are incredibly sturdy and durable - you can drop them, and they won't break. Also, they won't wilt in the heat or droop in the cold as fresh flowers can. If you're looking for a bouquet that will last all day (and into the night), wood flower bouquets are the way to go.
They Last Forever
When properly cared for, wood flower bouquets can last forever. Once your wedding day is over, you can keep your wood flower bouquet as a lasting memento or even pass it down to future generations. It's the perfect way to keep the memories of your big day alive for decades to come.
Wood flowers are sourced from sustainable woodlands, completely biodegradable, and don't require any water or sunlight, which makes them much friendlier to the environment than traditional bouquets. Additionally, wood flowers can be reused or upcycled into other home decor items after your wedding, further reducing their environmental impact.
