10 Reasons To Use Artificial Flowers At Your Wedding

Planning a wedding involves countless decisions, from choosing the perfect venue to deciding on the ideal menu. One of the most significant choices you'll make is your floral arrangements. While fresh flowers have long been a staple of wedding decor, artificial flowers are becoming an increasingly popular option for couples in the UK. Here’s why you should consider them for your big day.

  1. Long-Lasting Beauty

One of the most compelling benefits of artificial flowers is their durability. Unlike fresh blooms, which can wilt and fade, artificial flowers remain vibrant and beautiful throughout your wedding day and beyond. This means your flowers will look perfect from the ceremony to the reception, no matter how long the day lasts. The best bit is, you can keep them in a vase at home forever!

  1. Weather-Proof Elegance

The UK is known for its unpredictable weather. Whether it's a sunny day, a sudden downpour, or a chilly breeze, artificial flowers are unaffected by the elements. They won’t wilt in the heat or get damaged in the rain, ensuring your arrangements stay picture-perfect regardless of the weather conditions.

  1. Allergy-Friendly

Many people suffer from pollen allergies, which can be a concern with fresh flowers. Artificial flowers, however, are hypoallergenic. This means your guests can enjoy the beauty of your floral arrangements without any sneezing, itching, or discomfort, making your wedding a more pleasant experience for everyone.

  1. Endless Range of Choices (Even Out of Season!)

With artificial flowers, the possibilities are endless. You can choose from a vast array of blooms, including exotic and out-of-season varieties that might be difficult or expensive to source fresh. This allows you to have the flowers you love, regardless of the time of year. It means if you want peonies in December - you can!

  1. Cost-Effective

Weddings can be expensive, and fresh flowers can contribute significantly to the overall cost. Artificial flowers are often more cost-effective, allowing you to achieve the look you desire without breaking the bank. Additionally, because they can be used long after your wedding, you get more value for your money.

  1. Easy to Transport and Set Up

Transporting and setting up fresh flowers can be a delicate and stressful process. Artificial flowers are sturdier and easier to handle, reducing the risk of damage during transit and simplifying the setup process. This can be particularly advantageous if you’re having a destination wedding or if your venue is in a remote location.

  1. Keepsake Quality

One of the unique benefits of artificial flowers is their longevity, allowing you to keep your wedding flowers as a memento. You can preserve your bouquet, centrepieces, and other arrangements as a lasting reminder of your special day. Some brides even repurpose their wedding flowers into home decor, creating a cherished keepsake that continues to bring joy for years to come.


  1. They Double Up As Gifts

Need a gift for your bridesmaids? Why not buy them a glass fishbowl or vase for them to display their bridesmaid flowers forever? It will not only be a welcome addition to their home decor, but it will also be a reminder of the special day.


  1. Easy to Take Abroad

Getting married somewhere else? Artificial flowers mean you can take your wedding flowers with you, wherever your destination. Even if that just means taking the buttonholes and corsages - it’s one less thing to organise with a florist in your destination country and you’ll ensure the design is all to your liking before you’ve left the UK. 


  1. Sustainable and Eco-Friendly

With increasing awareness of environmental issues, many couples are looking for ways to make their weddings more sustainable. Artificial flowers can be a more eco-friendly choice. They reduce the demand for imported flowers and the associated carbon footprint. Moreover, they can be reused for other events or donated to charity, extending their life cycle and reducing waste.





Artificial flowers offer a practical, beautiful, and versatile alternative to fresh flowers for your wedding. They ensure that your floral arrangements remain stunning throughout your big day, regardless of the weather or season. Plus, they provide lasting memories and can be a more cost-effective and eco-friendly option. As you plan your dream wedding in the UK, consider the timeless elegance and convenience of artificial flowers.
