Why use Natural Touch and
Silk Flowers for your Wedding?
We know that most people would
think this is an absolutely crazy idea. But that is until they see what Silk
Wedding Flowers look like today.
We hear all the time "not
even the photographer knew!". And that is the best compliment we can get!
You will be able to keep your
Silk or Real Touch Bouquet for ever, (I still have mine n my daughter's room),
and give away as keepsakes all bouquets to your bridesmaids and boutonnieres to
your dad and groomsmen.
What's the difference between what WE call Silk Flowers, Soft Touch and
Natural Touch Flowers?
(Other vendors have other names, but we classify our flowers in 3 Categories)
Soft Touch Flowers are what the industry is
leaning towards to because of the wider variety of flowers and colors this
quality offers. These flowers are extremely realistic looking and realistic to the eye. The
best way to describe them would be a very thin petal, soft and amazing color reproduction. They can be dyed to any color.
These do not have a waxy coating.
Natural Touch Flowers have a thicker petal with
more texture and are amazingly realistic to the touch. The color/flower variety
is not as wide. They can be dyed but they might also bleed into other colors if
dyed, specially in darker colors. Keeping within in the standard available
colors is the best choice here. The stems are also amazingly realistic.
NOTE: There is
no price difference between Natural & Soft Touch Flowers
. They both have the same cost
per stem from our Suppliers, and therefore the same cost in a bouquet.
They both have the same
durability and even though you might have a preference in look and feel, it
really comes down to the type of flower and color you are looking for. If
getting specific colors and flowers is your priority we will work with both
types. You won't be disappointed by either of them!
Specialty/Silk Flowers Many Flowers do not come in either Natural or Soft Touch but are available in a High grade of Silk
Flowers. The color
reproduction and attention to details is what makes these flowers such a
wonderful choice. They look almost as good as Soft Touch Flowers and the only
difference is to the touch. But at a lower price point and with a much larger
availability of flowers and colors, this is a perfect flower by itself or mixed
with Soft/Natural Touch flowers to achieve a specific color mix or look. Some
of these flowers have a HIGHER cost than natural touch flower since they have a
higher amount of petals or because of the color mixing.
What are the standard flowers we use?
We use realistic looking
reproductions in an array of materials. We look amongst our suppliers for the
best option available for each individual Flower and Color. So some of our
roses are Velvet, some are Satin. There is really no Silk in the flowers known
as "Silk Flowers". Our Standard Callas are Soft Foam.
We use Grade 4 and Grade 5
flowers in our arrangements. Some items will include Grade 3 flowers to keep
the prices affordable. For example some Pews or Garlands will have them since
they won't be seen up close and these are items that are ordered in large
quantities. Please keep in mind Craft Stores carry mostly Grade 2 and some
Grade 3 Flowers.
All of the "Standard
Silk" arrangement you see in our website can be Upgraded to Natural Touch,
Soft Touch or Specialty Flowers. Please note that when Upgrading there will be
some color and flower shape adjustments. The Same Shape/Shade will most
probably not be available in a different quality. But we will maintain the same
design look and match the color as close as possible to the sample online or a
swatch that you may mail us.
Our Upgrade Options:
1- Specialty Flowers: The cost
of this upgrade is 30% to 60% above the list price for items that don't already
have Specialty Flowers in them. So if the list price is $50, the cost of the
Specialty Flower Bouquet would be $65 to $80.
2- Soft Touch or Natural Touch
Flowers. The cost of this upgrade is between 50% an 80% above the list price
for items that don't already have Natural Touch or Specialty Flowers in them.
So if the list price is $50, the cost of the Real Touch Bouquet would be
between $75 and $90. This is still a much better price than other websites that
sell real Touch Bouquets for $180!
