I am planning on using tiger lillies at my wedding and would like a silk altertative to the real thing. This flower is something like I am talking about:
However, when I search for silk alternatives all I find is this:
As you can tell from the pictures, the silk flowers are larger and less “curly/shaped” than the natural counterparts with less black accents. Does anyone know where to find a good substitute for the real thing? I am not sure the real ones will be quite in season where & when I am getting married. I know they bloom in late summer here, so it is possible it would work out time wise, but I also don’t know about durability for bouquets, etc. I haven’t seen the “wild” versions in bouquets much. I don’t know if that is because they don’t exist commercially or because they aren’t common… any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
One more thing: all you florists out there, please advise. I am not against using real flowers if I can get them in July/August in central Indiana and if wild tiger lillies can withstand being placed in bouquets for floral arrangements.
NOTE: Here is an image close to what I would like. I would like Queen Anne’s lace/wild carrot mixed in with the Tiger Lillies. I would also like a dash of yellow, but haven’t figured out what yet.
