● There are many silk flower cleaners available with florists and the departmental stores. These cleaners can keep the bouquet looking fresh.
The style of the bouquet depends on the bride. She can decide if it will be a round or a cascading bouquet. The bride can spice it up by spraying a nice smelling perfume of her choice over the bouquet. She can also ask the florist to glue crystals on the petals of the silk flowers. Such bouquets are gaining popularity and are here to stay.
