The dis-advantages of Silk Wedding Flowers
Perfect Reproductions?.. There is a perception that silk wedding flowers will look fake and tacky - whilst there have been vast improvements in the appearance of Silk flowers - some flowers such as Calla Lilies are difficult to fake. Having said that there are some flowers varieties that are incredibly realistic and quite beautiful but you will need to shop around for them - good quality Silk wedding flowers aren't the cheap option and can be expensive.
