Yes you can submerge silk flowers. You don’t have to use the same flowers as in your bouquets. The color can be the unifying factor.

Your centerpiece flowers don’t have to match your bouquets. However, you should do a trial run with the exact kind of silk flowers you will use for your wedding. The reason for this is that some dyes will bleed. I went to a wedding where the centerpieces were submerged red silk roses and some of them turned the water pink.

The color alone will enough to make it seem like it belongs πŸ™‚  Definitely test it out though, since orchids grow in a straight line or slight curve… I’m not sure how your inspiration pic has a whole group of them not fighting to float! 

Good luck πŸ™‚

There really should be no  problem using silk flowers. I’ve never heard of the colors bleeding before. I’ve actually tried to bleach silk flowers but the fabric is so resistant to even bleach!

The only thing is that silk flowers can cause bubbles but I think I read on WB that if by using distilled water you can avoid that problem.

@woodwindwaker: ummmm… please say you are NOT putting a candle and paper butterflies togther!?

I an see problems and fires with that scenario.  Otherwise, a trial run and experimenting is THE BEST way to go!

@woodwindwaker: No problem!  It’s a cute idea, but… kinda a fire hazard? lol

what about having them attached to the bottom?  

Or even just sitting at each place setting?  If you’re having a sit-down meal it would look really cute on the napkin rings!!!  or even sitting on the plates…  

If you wanted to be REALLY creative, you could have one perched on the edge of each chair… they problem wouldn’t last long with everyone sitting in the chair, leaning back against them, but it’d be really cute for them to see right off.

Were using submerged silk flowers and I love how they turned out! They didnt bleed at all (though they are a pale pink) and they look very real when submerged πŸ™‚
