The earth laughs in flowers."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Flowers add such a beautiful and meaningful touch to a wedding and the tradition of carrying a wedding bouquet (though not quite what it is today) stems all the way back from the 15th century. But if you're a mountain bride who is planning a romantic backcountry wedding, an exclusive elopement beside a glacier, or a luxurious wedding during the middle of winter, it can be tough to keep those beautiful blooms looking fabulous.
One of the best options for keeping your flowers looking great in any condition may shock you - silk flowers. Yes, silk flowers can survive days at an exclusive backcountry lodge or the coldest and windiest of temperatures. Silk flowers are not the dusty old things your grandmother used to have in her home, but like most things nowadays, they have come a long way and are luxurious, detailed and remarkably similar to real flowers. In fact, all the flowers you see at the Oscars are actually silk flowers.
We were thrilled to discover an incredibly talented and luxurious silk floral designer in Canmore, F2 Floral Fashion. F2 Floral Fashion brings in the same luxurious silk flowers used by the Oscars and other leading designers across the world.
If you're still not sold on the idea of silk flowers, pop into her showroom and you'll be pleasantly surprised at the colour and beauty of the thousands of flowers she has ready for you to work into a gorgeous wedding bouquet at any moment. Here's a taste of F2 Floral Fashion's beauitful work and incredibly luxurious silk flowers. I know you can't tell the difference!
