How To Display Your Silk Wedding Bouquet
A good display is perfect for showing off your wedding bouquet, and will ensure that you never forget the momentous occasion.
It will also guarantee that the bouquet stays in tip top condition, and doesn't get dirty or fade.
There are a few things you should think about when displaying your bouquet. In particular, you must be very careful about
displaying your bouquet next to a window. But more about that later...
Anyway, you can display your bouquet in 3 different ways:
- On A Table
- On A Shelf
- In A Display Cabinet
Displaying On A Table
If you have a posy, then one way to display it is in a vase, on top of a table. Try and find a table that is out of the way
(A corner table, or dining table perhaps), so that the posy doesn't get in the way of your day to day routine.
If you place white and blue stones at the bottom of the vase, it will give the sense that the silk flowers are sitting in
water. This looks spectacular, and I highly recommend that you give it a try.
Displaying On A Shelf
You can also display your bouquet on a shelf. A high shelf is ideal, so that the bouquet is out of the way - you don't want
people knocking it over!
Two small wedding photo's on either side of the bouquet will look great, and will really draw the eye to your wedding display.
Displaying In A Glass Display Cabinet
The best way to display your wedding masterpiece is in a glass cabinet. This works really well with a photograph of your wedding
as a backdrop to the bouquet. It looks great, and looks simple as well - which as you're about to discover, is one of the
golden rules of bouquet display...
4 Golden Rules Of Bouquet Display
Whichever way you to decide to display your bouquet, there are four golden rules you need to pay attention to:
1) Place the silk bouquet in an area where it will draw attention to the eye. A well displayed bouquet makes a great talking
point, and will give you happy memories of your wedding every time you see it.
2) Make sure the bouquet is out of the way of your everyday activities. You don't want to be knocking it over, or pushing
it aside all the time. You might "know" that you'll be careful, but what about your children, or your pets?
3) KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid. Many people get carried away when setting up their bouquet display, and add too many photographs
and other wedding items. This clutters the display, which stops the bouquet from being the focal point. You want the display
to be VERY simple, so that eye is drawn to the the bouquet, and not to all the "junk" around it.
4) Make sure your bouqet is NEVER in direct contact with sunlight. Direct sunlight is very bad for silk bouquets, and will
make them fade and lose their color very quickly. Ideally you want to display your bouquet in natural room light. If you have
your bouquet anywhere near a window, just make sure the sunlight doesn't directly hit it!
