Strands of fresh and/or silk flowers are the easiest way to add a tropical touch to arches and alters, line the isle, decorate fences and more.
We offer a beautiful lifelike silk plumeria garland in our Islands Gift Shop!
Lifelike silk leis, shell leis, kukui nut leis, lifelike silk plumeria blooms, and lifelike silk plumeria garland strands make great keepsakes from your wedding. Forever leis and lifelike decorations are a more economical option than fresh leis and fresh decorations which require special packaging and expensive express shipping.
Great ideas for using forever leis and decorations are:
* Wear the forever leis for your wedding rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and/or wedding. Forever leis are available for the neck, head, wrists, and ankles.
* Use lifelike silk plumeria blooms for your flower girl to drop, sprinkle on ground where you will exchange vows, decorate tables, decorate cake boxes or favor boxes, use for flower toss instead of a rice toss.
* Use lifelike silk plumeria garland strands to line the isle the bride will be walking down, to create a circle of flowers where you will exchange vows, on chairs, on trellises, fences, alters, etc.
* Do a lei exchange with your forever leis every anniversary to relive your special day and recommit your love.
* Have a luau to celebrate your 1st Anniversary and wear your forever wedding leis to your celebration.
Tiki Torches are a great way to add a tropical atmosphere. If the wedding is in the evening the torches can be lit, if the wedding is during the day the tiki torch makes a great flower arrangement holder. To use as a flower arrangement holder as shown below remove the fuel holder and put the fresh or silk flower stems in it's place. Orchid sprays, fresh tropical flowers, or artificial tropical flowers are great for tiki torch flower displays. Silk leis are ideal for attaching on to the torch stand to add more tropical flare. Lightweight chiffon fabric can also be tied between the tiki torches to create an isle, section off areas, etc.
