As a professional wood flower florist, we hear this question a lot. Whether or not wood flowers are worth the investment depends on a number of factors, such as your budget, personal preferences, and the specific needs of your event. Here are a few things to consider when deciding if wood flowers are worth the investment:
Overall Cost vs Cost Effective: Wood flowers can sometimes be more expensive than real flowers, depending on the quality of the materials and the level of craftsmanship involved. However, they can also be more cost-effective in the long run due to their durability and reusability. If you plan to use the flowers for multiple events or as home decor after the wedding, the initial investment may be worth it.
Appearance: Wood flowers can be made to look very realistic, with intricate details and vibrant colors that mimic real flowers - or can be made to match your exact theme and color that cannot grow in the real world. We pride ourselves on creating stunning florals that photograph well, and last for years to come. If you're looking for a specific flower that's out of season or difficult to find in your area, or non-existent in fresh flowers, wood flowers can be a great alternative.
Sustainability: Wood flowers are typically made from the bark of the sola plant, which is a renewable resource that doesn't harm the environment. If you're looking for eco-friendly options for your wedding or event, wood flowers can be a good choice. Check out our blog post on the eco-friendly and sustainable benefits of wood flowers here.
Versatility: Wood flowers can be customized to match any theme or color scheme, and they can be used in a variety of ways, such as in bouquets, centerpieces, or as decor. This versatility can make them a good investment if you want to create a cohesive look for your event. Many times, they can also double as gifts for your wedding party, centerpieces as gifts for guests or family, and large pieces double as statement decor in your home after the event. When you work with NWB, we keep versatility, the lifetime and purpose of your florals throughout that lifetime in mind when designing for you.
Ultimately, whether or not wood flowers are worth the investment depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you value sustainability, durability, and customization, wood flowers may be a good choice for your wedding or event. However, if cost is a major factor and you don't mind using real flowers, they may be a more affordable option.
