It won’t come as much of a surprise that the wedding design industry is big business and least of all in the floral department. In fact, the wedding service industry was estimated to be worth at least £10 billion last year and that was in the UK alone.

According to various sources, the average newly-engaged couple will be looking to spend about 8-10% of their nuptials budget on floral arrangements for their big day. A hefty chunk when you consider all the expenditures that go into planning the wedding as a whole.

Flowers are always going to be an essential detail for any wedding design, but they don’t necessarily have to be real to create an everlasting impression.

7 Pros of Using Artificial Flowers in Wedding Designs

  1. They are hardy! No more wilting and shrivelling – especially during the heat of summer when so many weddings take place. In fact, they’re ready to go from the initial ordering process to the time of the big day itself.
  2. Artificial flowers also tend to be a lot lighter. This also applies to the various centrepieces as they won’t need a water source. This is important when it comes to transportation and hanging installations in the venue space. No water source = no water splash = one less thing to worry about! 
  3. Takes the stress away! You don’t have to order the flowers to arrive last minute so they are as fresh as possible or worry about them turning up on time. Artificial flowers can be ordered way in advance and then be lightly dusted and adjusted before they are actually needed. Also, if you are arranging them yourself this gives you plenty of time to play around with arrangements without having to constantly keep buying fresh ones.
  4. Allergies! If there are concerns that a wedding guest may sneeze through the ceremony or start sputtering through the speeches then this may be a good way to eliminate the fear of a sudden pollen attack ruining everyone’s day.
  5. The couple gets to keep them forever! This element of a couple’s special day will be frozen in time if that’s their wish. 
  6. Once their primary use is complete, the wedding display can then double up as a great gift of thanks to the bridal party.
  7. You don’t have to wait for the right season for a particular flower to appear! It’s the couple’s big day so their choices are widened by going down the artificial route.

Although you may not have the smell of fresh flowers, the versatility that faux-flora and fauna have to offer quashes any worries on that front. This is all about getting maximum impact with a minimum amount of stress and disruption. Plus, it’s about creating a lasting reminder of a beautiful day.

Luxury artificial plants for that ‘wow’ factor

Sometimes plants are the finishing touch little succulents on the desk or in the bathroom. Plants so well placed that you almost don’t notice they are there but the place would look empty without them. But sometimes you want your floral arrangements to have a big. You want them to have the ‘wow factor’ when customers first walk into your premises.

Floresy specialises in luxury artificial plants for creating impressive displays. Here are some examples of plants to choose from if you want to create something special.

Luxury Artificial Plants – Trees

Trees are perhaps the most obvious choice of luxury artificial plants. They also have the most impact. Trees are an unexpected interior feature and are therefore the most impressive. A tree can bring an organic and harmonious presence to any space. They give us a connection to nature. But likewise, an interior tree can also say “decadence” and “opulence”.

Large artificial plants such as trees are an investment but they pay for themselves in reduced maintenance costs. In addition to our catalogue range, Floresy also offers a bespoke artificial tree service

Luxury artificial plants – flower arrangements

Most flower arrangments are cut flowers which means they have very limited longevity.  With artificial flower arrangements, your display will not fade. It will stay fresh and in top condition for years to come. Another benefit of luxury artificial plants as flower arrangements is that they can be stored between seasons – or even sold and replaced! Artificial plants are assets for a business and are no different from furniture in that regard.

Floresy offers a great choice of artificial flowers in a choice of displays. Here are some examples of Floresy’s artificial flower arrangements that make great additions to restaurant tables, reception desks and restrooms. Floresy also caters for larger displays which are perfect as plant room dividers.

Luxury artificial plants – grasses and bamboos

Our artificial grasses and bamboos continue to be some of our best sellers. It’s because they are attractive, versatile and are near-identical to the real thing. But perhaps it’s the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity that bamboo and other grass species creates that makes them so very special.

Floresy is proud to present this arrangement which was on display at Millennium Hall during the summer of 2017. The theme for this brief was Holidays and Powerful Colours.

About Millenium Hall

The Millennium Hall is a shopping centre in Rzesow, Poland with over 1.18 million square feet of floor space. More than 250 clothing retailers occupy the units including global brands such as Lacoste, H&M and Nike. Plus many more restaurants, coffee shops and eateries.

The shopping centre is known for its complex ceiling architecture and was designed by Studio 5 Architects. The main challenge was balancing the acoustics and light in such a large and busy space. The mall is divided into multiple passageways, each with varying ceiling types and heights. The result is high-volume walkways with acoustic comfort and various light sources that add texture and interest. Develop Investment Sp. z o.o. completed construction in July 2011. 

Floresy in Full Bloom

Floresy’s concept was to meet the challenge head-on with a riot of summertime colour. Pinks, yellows, purples and oranges flood the central stairway within the mall with joy and humour. The dark green foliage defines the bright colours and helps them stand out within this sunlit space.

The vertical height of the shopping centre display area stretches the full four floors. To fill this impressive space, Floresy suspended the arrangements from the ceiling with cables.

The centrepiece of the display is a shop mannequin. Her inclusion reflects those used in the window displays of the retailers in the mall. Her dress has a long, flowing skirt made from flowers, greenery and tulle fabric. She is adorned with a hot pink garland of flowers around her head. Leaves and foliage decorate the cables that suspend her. The overall effect is fun and impressive. She almost looks as if she is swinging from a trapeze or garden swing!

Accompanying the main figure is eight large flower-wreath balls. Each cable again has more foliage decorating it. The hanging decorations mimic vines and creeping plants spilling down into the stairwell.

The complete shopping centre display uses over 400 flower buds and blooms in both the centrepiece and the eight flower-wreath-balls. The spring and summer flowers are from our collection and include peonies, gypsophila and carnations.  The unique design creates a buzz. As the shoppers pass by on their way between floors, the beautiful colours catch their eye. And they are sure to feel a summery sensation.

Floresy Design for Big Spaces

When designing artificial plant schemes for large spaces such as this shopping centre display, it is important to be bold. Bright colours and large eye-catching designs will have a greater effect than something more subtle.  Designing solutions for spaces like a shopping centre make it necessary to also consider the practical use of the space. And so when done properly, any communal area, such as this staircase, or other areas with a high foot-fall can be included in a design.

Using real flowers in a display such as this would result in a product that was impossible to maintain. Because of our extensive range of artificial flowers and plants, Floresy has the right solution for large-scale displays. Furthermore, our expert planning services mean we can design a display to meet with our customer’s visions.
