1) Where can you use silk flowers for your wedding?
You can us them everywhere–from bouquets and boutonnieres, to the decoration, and also gifts for the guests.
2) How long do silk flowers last?
There’s no specific limit to the life span of silk flowers. Silk flowers usually last years, or even decades, if they’re well kept. The key is to keep them away from direct sunlight. Humidity doesn’t affect their life. So for as long as they’re stored indoors, they can last for a very, very long time.
3) Are all kinds of silk flowers available?
Yes, we have peonies and ranunculus all year round. We also have flowers that are not easily available, not in season, or are very expensive in the local flower market such as poppy, corn flower, and lily of the valley.

- You’re guaranteed to have the flowers you love.

5) When the wedding is done, what can you do with the leftover silk flowers?
