When creating a budget for wedding flowers, most couples face a time when they have to prioritize what they want and which pieces they decide against. But one way to get everything you want on a budget is to incorporate real and silk flowers in Denver and the Front Range. And we do this all the time for couples with our friends over at Compass Rose Floral. This friendor—friend+vendor if you didn’t know—is a business we work with often. So we wanted to give them a shoutout on the blog and highlight a recent wedding we did with them so you can see how well real and silk flowers can be integrated!
Some Denver florists will mix real and silk flowers, but we love teaming up with Compass Rose Floral for silk flowers so we can both play to our strengths! For a recent wedding in Larkspur, Brittany and Skyler used a beautiful combination of these media.
Painted Primrose created the bridal bouquet, centerpieces, petals, barrel arrangements, and fireplace mantel pieces. But everything else, our friends over at Compass Rose did, including the bridesmaid’s bouquets and the beautiful arch at the altar. We worked closely with the folks at Compass Rose to make sure flower types and colors matched as closely as possible. We hope you agree when looking at the bridal bouquet and bridesmaid’s bouquets together, this mix of real and silk/faux flowers looks great!
Many couples want an elaborate floral arch for their wedding, but it is one of the places where the costs can add up quickly. So some people choose to go the faux flowers route for their arch, like Brittany and Skyler did. Compass Rose does an incredible job with arches, and Brittany and Skyler’s is proof of that!
We are so thankful for Compass Rose, and that we can work with them to help couples get all the flowers they want within a budget that works for them. Here’s to many more weddings, Compass Rose Floral!
