Planning your big day comes with a lot of decisions that have to be made. And one of those decisions, is what type of flowers you would like to have. Would they be…….artificial or real? This decision is a matter of preference. There are a lot of advantages of having artificial flowers versus real. I often hear people say that artificial flowers do not look real; however, it depends on the quality. There are artificial flowers that look, feel, and smell real; which depends on the quality of them. Some advantages of real flowers are: durability (no wilting/freezing), easy to transport, retain its beauty for many years, always in season, nonallergenic, and lifelike/realistic just to name a few. Live flowers exceed artificial flowers due to the mere fact that they are alive and are constantly changing, growing, and periodically blooming.
