How far in advance should I book my wedding flowers?

Can you design artificial flowers instead of real ones?
We can definitely use faux flowers instead of fresh ones (especially if you’re highly allergic to the real deal) but don’t go this route if you’re looking to save some money. In fact, quality artificial flowers (the kind that looks real) are usually made of silk and they're more expensive than their natural counterparts. The best way to save money on your flowers is to make arrangements multi-use Contact us for more details.
