By Hermina Bevilacqua | August 23, 2017

Not sure whether to have fresh wedding flowers or faux for your special day?  Making a decision depends on a variety of factors. But before I get into this discussion I wanted to share with you my experience at the July Melbourne and Honeymoon Bridal Expo.  Our stand featured fresh wedding flowers only.  On display there were around 8 different bridal bouquet styles, with matching groom buttonholes, flower girls head circlets and floral crowns.  Couples visiting approached with curiosity, using phrases like, “are these real?”, “are they fresh?”, “are the flowers faux?”. Once they picked up and held the bouquet of their choice it was clear to see they were excited by the opportunity to feel what it would be like to carry a fresh flower wedding bouquet or wear a buttonhole.
