We think flowers are a big day essential here at Wedding Ideas, but what if you’re allergic to pollen? What if you’re planning a wedding abroad in a super-hot climate where natural blooms would wilt? Silk wedding flowers could be the answer for you… We caught up with the team at Silk Blooms to discover their 10 best-selling bouquets and posies. Which one would suit your big day?



At number 10 on our list is the lovely Beth bridesmaid bouquet. This is a stunning coral and ivory tropical design made with quality artificial hydrangea and ivory calla lilies. It is a modern design that would be perfect for an elegant summer beach wedding. The bouquet is finished with ivory satin ribbon, a coral satin bow and sparkling clear crystal flower pins. The lilies have a look that is both fresh and summery, especially when paired with the sunset coral hydrangea!



Looking at this design we can almost smell the grassy fields of spring. The Tabby bridal bouquet is a gorgeous ivory and green design made of ranunculus, roses, trachelium and pretty cherry blossom. The hand-wrapped sage green ribbon handle gives a soft vintage feel and we think this design would be perfect for a shabby chic or country garden-style celebration.



The perfect match for a tropical summer wedding, the Yvonne bridal bouquet is a rounded design with orchids, Picasso calla lilies, roses and hydrangea. Vibrant pinks, oranges and greens paired with ivory and a hint of lilac make it a colourful and exciting summer design. This is a perfect choice for a wedding abroad – remember we can safely ship your wedding flowers straight to your wedding venue, or if you would rather keep them right by your side we can post them to you before you leave. And unlike fresh flowers, it’s legal and safe to take artificial flowers oversees in your luggage.



We just love the stunning coral, pink, peach and orange colours in the Anastasia bridal bouquet. It’s a wonderfully feminine design that would suit any spring or summer wedding. The bouquet has a mix of real touch orchids and roses and is hand tied with peach chiffon ribbon and crystal chain around the stem. These soft wedding colours are really on trend for 2014/15.



The Georgia bridal bouquet is a stunning modern rose design. This simple posy shape is perfect for a contemporary style wedding. The bouquet contains luxury fresh touch lilac roses and a sparkling crystal heart brooch. The handle is wrapped in white ribbon and a crystal band which adds a little bit of sparkle. A perfect bouquet for a modern wedding theme.



Our Delaney bridal bouquet is a turquoise real touch orchid bouquet finished off with beautiful wire detailing and clear crystal beads. It is a stunning contemporary design that would be perfect for a tropical, aquatic or beach-themed wedding. We can match the flowers and ribbons to your wedding colours perfectly, just send us a swatch or pantone code with your order and we’ll make sure we get it spot on!



Another beautiful bouquet that would look fantastic on the beach this summer. This is the Connie bridal bouquet – a modern design made of bright blue gerberas and pure white lilies and roses. This design is keeping things simple yet making a statement with the unusual blue flowers. Hand tied with luxury satin ribbon and finished with white satin and crystal mini roses throughout, this is a wedding bouquet no one will forget.



Our second most popular design for spring and summer is the stunning Savannah bridal bouquet. A sweet combination of luxury real touch gerberas, roses and beauty lilies in pale pinks and white. If you’re a girly girl, this is the bouquet for you. Have your bridesmaids in pretty pink dresses and matching bridesmaid bouquets, this will look fresh and elegant. The bouquet is finished with satin ribbon, pink soft netting and sparkling clear and pale pink Swarovski crystals.



Our Vermeer calla lilies are very popular with our real brides. This is the Sandra bridesmaid bouquet which is a contemporary purple design full of these beautiful blooms. You won’t find these unique, fresh touch lilies anywhere else. They are perfect for a modern style wedding and we can create them in any colour at all, just send us a swatch or Pantone code along with your order!



The beautiful Omaira bridal bouquet is our number one best seller! A magnificent display of luxury fresh touch roses, peonies, silk ranunculus and hydrangea. A fresh and feminine design that is very popular with brides from all over the world. It is a modern rounded posy and the perfect size. The soft colours look lovely against an ivory or white dress in the sun. The finishing touches of pearl pins and satin ribbon make this a show-stopping choice for a vintage wedding.
