Why FAKE is BETTER
...or at least when it comes to wearing silk flowers in your hair rather than real.
Listen, I'm all for the organic, real, beautiful blooms-in fact, I LOVE them and of course prefer them to silk BUT when it comes to wearing flowers, there are some things you should consider.
You know those freshly done floral hairstyles we pin so often on Pinterest? Here's the thing, most of those photos where taken during a styled shoot OR while the bride is getting ready. Most real flowers wilt SO quickly when they aren't in water and wearing vials of it in your hair just isn't cute or practical with all the dancing and celebrating you'll be doing or what about that dipped kiss once you say your vows? Water falling out of your hair just...well...you get the picture.
I've also talked to so many florists about this same topic and they would absolutely agree that WEARING SILK and/or PRESERVED flowers & greenery in your hair will actually hold up better during your entire wedding day and well after!
I've even had several brides wear their crowns and combs on their honeymoons as well their baby showers, family photos and even birthdays!
These adornments are carefully created to last even as an heirlooms! How stinkin' cute would it be for your daughter to wear your Floral Crown in the future?!
