Part of the fun of the real touch flower line is that they can be custom dyed to your exact color palette. The flowers are dyed using a variety of techniques,and our expertise and experience translates into the perfect dyed bloom that will not transfer dye to your hands or dress.
This year, we have had many requests for orchids to be dyed turquoise and dark purple. The effect is stunning and brides are giving these orchid rave reviews. Check out a few of the pictures of these turquoise and blue orchid bridal bouquets to see for yourself.
We can also dye pretty much any other flower – A beautiful example of incorporating a brides exact color palette is shown in Jill’s beautiful Fiesta Bouquet for her Mexican themed wedding. In her bouquet, she requested that mums be dyed to match her bridesmaids dresses that were turquoise blue, hot pink and orange.
If you have a question about dying real touch flowers, Destination or Not Bridal Bouquets will be happy to give you a quote for your custom dyed blooms.
It’s almost impossible to find a faux California poppy, whether real touch or silk, that looks at all like a California poppy. First is the texture of the petals (they’re always made to be super crinkly and fleshy-looking when real ones are really smooth and thin), but I don’t think you’d have control over that, since you advertise dyeing, not creating the flower from the ground up. But the right color is just as impossible to find. Every one I’ve found has the gradient the wrong way, starting yellow in the center and going orange toward the petal tips, instead of fading from orange in the center to yellow at the petal tips like they do in real life. And none of the faux ones I’ve found at least dye the flower all one shade of orange to keep it uniform– they all try the gradient and get it wrong (or they give the flowers bizarre orange and yellow stripes!). This makes me think it’s remarkably difficult to shape and color a California poppy. But I want to know with more certainty. I would like to know if a dye can give a white faux poppy (depending on the material) that authentic tangerines-made-of-buttery-sunshine color, or even better, that fade outward from orange to yellow that makes the poppies look like they’re little buttery orange suns themselves.
