Flower arrangements have been used for hundreds of years in order to celebrate certain occasions, either symbolizing sadness or happiness, depending on what the situation called for. A tradition kept for countless years, flowers are developing more and more into a fruitful business, as they are gathering more and more clients on a yearly basis. If you take a moment to think about it, you can see these changes yourself if you happen to walk by some church on your way to work and you happen to see some church flowers mounted right at the front door. Did you happen to see that hey are becoming larger and more complicated with each year that passes?
Church flowers are used generally to honor a special occasion like a church celebration, or the religious part of a wedding. There are even contests organized in the United States of America, that offer prizes to the best church flowers, made by different organizations or by simple folk like you and me. In the same manner as church flower arrangements are used to celebrate a happy event, they can be used for those less fortunate moments, such as funerals, in order to symbolize respect for the deceased and also sadness towards the one that will no longer be with his family and friends. It is said that the larger the flower arrangement, the more he will be missed and the more important he was to the person giving the flower arrangement.
However flowers are generally connected to happiness so I say we talk a bit about bridal flowers. I can honestly say that women are simply not happy about the wedding, unless the flowers at the wedding look simply amazing and they fit the ceremony in the perfect way. This is why companies that are focused on flower arrangements are making a fortune these days, as wedding are becoming more and more complicated with each occasion that passes.
For those that have a smaller pocket however, or feel that having such a large number of flowers at a festivity is simply a waste, there is always the option of silk flower arrangements. They are not natural and they will not give out any odor whatsoever, however they are significantly cheaper than the natural flower arrangements, they will last a lot longer, they are definitely more resilient and the best thing is that you can later on use them again.
