Flowers are a major part of the wedding ceremony and reception. From bouquets to centrepieces, flower arrangements add to the theme and colour of the event. Discount artificial wedding flowers can be found locally at craft stores, or online through wholesalers. The most popular artificial flowers are made from silk, but there are other varieties and accessories that you can add to bouquets to make them stand out.

Silk Flowers

When purchasing flowers for a wedding, fake silk flowers present an effective alternative to real flowers. Artificial wedding flowers provide help for a wedding on a budget, since you can find multiple types at local crafts stores. In addition, artificial petals do not wilt, nor do they freeze in cold weather. The price is dependent on the size as well as how many flowers you need for your wedding. Roses can run as low as .99 cents from an online retailer, which is low in comparison to real flowers. However, if you want really quality silk flowers, the discount may not be worth it, since they are almost the same to the price of real flowers.

Other Varieties

While silk is mainly used for artificial wedding flowers, you may find other varieties made of satin, paste, clay, paper or organza. You can find handmade fabric roses, in satin and chiffon, from designers on Etsy that come in several colours and designs, from hairpieces for the veil to bouquets. These have a different look than silk flowers but also have an elegant, delicate appeal. Project Wedding also has do-it-yourself instructions on making chiffon and tulle flowers for a hairpiece or wedding gift.

Craft Stores

You have the added benefit of being able to pick and choose in person from local craft stores. Most large craft stores offer artificial flowers with occasional discounts, such as Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Hobby Lobby and AC Moore. There also might be local craft stores where you can find very realistic fake flowers. Laura's Floral Elegance in Northport is a silk floral shop in New York that also has an online shop. Their prices range from £29 at the lowest to £97 for bigger arrangements.

Online Retailers

You can find a lot of discount artificial wedding flowers on the web, either through the major craft store retailers or private online companies. Afloral offers discount flowers for weddings, including calla lilies, carnations, crystals and jewels, garlands and orchids. You can make your own or choose pre-made bouquets. Another wholesale online silk flower shop is 1888flowermall, which offers wedding bouquets by colour, flower and plants.
