Silk vs. Clay Flowers - Which is Better?

Recommended Posts

I need your input... for those of you who decided not to go with real flowers, which type did you go with, silk or clay? Are the clay flowers delicate and more difficult to travel with?

 

I have seen that several people recommended Plumerias Wedding Boutique, unfortunately, they are no longer taking custom orders. Any other suggestionshuh.gif

I absolutely LOVED all of my clay flowers and my bouquet! It sits in my guest room and I get to look at it everyday! It was EXACTLY what I wanted. I highly suggest them!

I purchased mine off of Etsy from FentonFlorals . She is amazing to work with. If you check out my planning thread you can see all of the flowers I had and in my siggy is my bouquet.

 

We traveled from slc to nyc to turks & caicos and back and the flowers are in perfect condition. I carried my bouquet in a duffle bag on the flight. All the rest of our flowers were in our suitcases. You could drop these and they would be fine.. its more like dont throw them, full force to concrete and expect them to be ok.

 

Hope this helps. PM with questions!

I'm afraid I don't have any pictures of my bouquet yet, it's only supposed to ship out this week. I got it from Silk Wedding Flowers By Pioneers Of Real Touch Flowers In Artificial Bridal Floral Arrangements though, they have pics from other brides on their site.

I feel like a total and complete noob now. Clay flowers? I had no idea. But honestly, they look pretty real to me, and I hate the idea of wasting real flowers, so this seems to be perfect. Question though:  are they MORE or LESS delicate than silk flowers? (and do silk flowers get crushed, for those of you who know)?

AH! Last question: what does one do with leftover clay/silk flowers after the ceremony/reception? I'm sort of at a loss for ideas.. donate them? use them for... some kind of project? My fiance and I will be moving into a small apartment so it's not like we have tons of room lol (I think he would kill me)
