How Artificial Wedding Garlands Came into Use
The use of flowers in weddings dates back to real historical times. There is proof of floral use in ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman weddings. Then brides carried sheaths of wheat as a symbol of fertility.
The Greek brides wore Olive twigs and branches to honor the Goddess of marriage, Hera. Ivy stood for the durability of marriage, whereas white blossoms meant sweetness.
The Romans used orange blossoms, thyme, marjoram, basil, etc. to shun evil and in pursuit of good luck. The Egyptian brides also carried thyme, but with garlic to ward off evil.
Again, a poem dating back to 1100 BCE relates love to Lotus. The same flowers were used in the Middle Ages, from the 5th to 15th century.
In the Elizabethan Era from the 15th to 16th century, the regular floral arrangement changed to posies, nosegays, and sachets. It is at this time; the kissing knot was introduced.
In the Victorian era, from the19th to 20th century, blossoming crowns became very trendy. The Queen herself wore an orange blossom crown, a symbol of chastity, and used a lot of flowers in the wedding, including her myrtle bouquet associated with beauty, fidelity, and immortal, true love.
In modern times, flowers are just as important. From the aisle decoration to the boutonnière, even the simplest weddings at least have a bouquet.
However, modern weddings didn’t limit themselves to the use of real and fresh flower garlands for the wedding; there has been the right amount of use of artificial flowers. But it isn’t the modern times that invented it.
Artificial flowers date back to almost 1500 years ago when the Chinese made silk flowers. This trend move from Japan, Koren to the European continent, where the French mastered the art of faux-flowers, and the English took it from them, ultimately making way to America.
Today many renditions of the silk flower exist, and many artificial flower garlands are used in real weddings.
Why You Need Best Artificial Wedding Garlands
I know some of you are skeptical about the use of artificial flower garlands at your weddings, even if it is the best artificial garland.
Less expensive floral use will scream falseness if not chosen rightly, and that is very off-putting.
Well, I will teach you how to counter these mishaps, but first, let us see why you need artificial flower garlands.
Here they are:
A Reminder Of The Day
The fresh wedding garlands may not be something that you can keep in your wardrobe for decades to show your grandchildren what your wedding day flowers were like, or just as a sweet memory for yourself. But these artificial greenery garlands can do that for you. They can serve as a reminder of your special day.
Token Of Gift
If you don’t plan on keeping your flowers, you can give them away as a gift to the ones who attended the wedding. In this manner, you’ll not just reduce wastage, but create goodwill.
No Dying Out
If you use real flowers, there might be a chance of them withering out due to excess heat or humidity. But with the best fake garland, not a thing to worry about. Not primarily about them dying out.
No Insect Attraction
Real flowers attract a lot of insects like wasps, bugs, and flies. But even if you fool a human with the falseness of your flower garlands, you can’t fool a fly. They’ll steer clear so as to confirm a bug-free wedding for you.
Sometimes due to excess heat or while dying out, flowers leave marks of stains. Now that is the last thing you want on your white as a pearl wedding gown (unless you’re wearing black, of course). With artificial flowers, lesser worries about the stain for you.
No Allergic Reaction
If Aunt Mary is allergic to Petunias, Buttercups, or Blueminks and those happen to be your favorite ones, don’t you worry pretty bride. You can have them made for you. A fresh artificial Bluemink garland that doesn’t disturb you or Aunt Mary.
If you are planning a destination wedding, then artificial flowers are right for you. They can travel with you, lying silently in your suitcase. The only thing you worry about is whether you packed them before boarding the plane.
Lighter In Weight
Artificial wedding garlands are actually lighter than the real ones because the fabric which is used can be customized. So much easier on the decorators.
Value For Money
Some argue that buying real flower garlands are cheaper than cheap artificial wedding garlands, while some say it’s actually expensive. But one thing is for sure. If you want off-season flowers in your wedding, or will marry in an area where flowers aren’t available and ordering them would be too much of a hassle, then artificial flower garlands are a cheaper option.
Like I said in my first point, artificial wedding garlands can be stored for a really long time without getting damaged or being eaten or decomposed.
Made In Advance
Artificial flower garlands can be ordered, made, and received in advance. But if you think from the real-flowers perspective, then it will not be a good idea to have your roses ordered and sent a week before the wedding, just in case.
Well, not just Christmas, but in case you have a new occasion coming, or simply want to decorate your house, you can use these stored garlands, thereby turning your cheap, fine-looking garlands into cheap Christmas garlands.
How to Buy The Best Garland for Wedding
You have to take care of a few things before buying any of these artificial greenery or colorful garlands for your weddings.
Let me tell you what they are:
Artificial flowers can be made of a variety of materials.
Polyester is the most common in terms of choice. And plastic is the most common material used to make the stem.
But if you’re looking for better quality, you can always opt for silk flowers or rayon flowers and real branches and stems.
To make berries and small fruits or buds, tapioca or flour is used.
But silk isn’t as durable as polyester, neither cheap.
Paper, latex, rubber, cotton, satin, etc. are also used in making flowers.
You can choose whichever one you like.
The design of your flower garlands is what you should pay notice to as well.
The flowers usually come with a stem, and sometimes the garlands bear no flowers, just plain old leaf, and stem.
Plain old might not be a useful term because it doesn’t do justice to the simple beauties.
So, if you want a forest-like theme or an elegant theme, just suit the design accordingly.
Look for the garlands which do not have a too glossy wax coat, because it might give in the fact that they are fake.
Opt for those with a more natural finishing color.
You can play with the shape of the garland. Instead of merely finding a cheap garland that hangs, find a garland that can be twisted and layered into different forms.
Before ordering, play with the shape of the garland and watch if you can actually incorporate it in different decorations.
Not just a flower wall, your garlands should be able to act as a runner, a chair decor, or event a Christmas garland because why not.
Watch if the artificial floral garland you are buying leaves stains.
There are some types that, when washed, leave dyes, and the color bleeds, ultimately fading.
Do a water soaking test before buying.
Before buying the garlands or any artificial wedding flowers, do not forget to check for safety.
Sometimes, wires, hooks, or pins may come out of the thing and hurt your finger or might ruin your dress by causing tears.
Always check when you are buying for these.
Look for artificial garlands that are made of eco-friendly materials.
In this manner, you can ensure zero waste, at least from the flowers.
Hopefully, you are now more willing to buy one from the best artificial garlands, more than ever, if I could persuade you with the information.
Flowers are an essential part of a wedding, flower garlands more so.
I have shown enough reasons why you could use artificial flower garlands. Not for just the flower wall, but to decorate a floral chair sash, headbands by cutting the garlands, aisle guideway, ceiling suspension, archway decoration; you can do so many things.
You can also use them side-by-side your regular real flowers if you’re not so sure, but obviously not together. Whatever the case, it will be multi-functional for you to use them, and a keepsake too.
These are enough, I guess, to give artificial flower garlands ago.
For outdoor or indoor home decoration, you need artificial plants, here is a review of these plants, should remember that that’s plants is realistic fake outdoor plants that can help you to the decor.
