How to Judge Quality When Shopping Online

When shopping online there is often a fear that what you see is not what you are going to get. This can be particularly stressful when you are shopping for accessories for one of the biggest days of your life: your wedding. Wedding Collectibles works to provide the best quality and a variety of choices, but we also look to provide items that will work for a variety of budgets. We've come up with 3 tips that should help you buy exactly what you are looking for.

Flower Basket

  1. A great rule of thumb when shopping for anything in your wedding is that you are going to get what you pay for. So if a flower basket is under $10, then it is going to be worth under $10 (unless there is some sort of mega sale). This does not mean it won't be pretty and nice or that you shouldn't buy it, but that it  does mean that it will not be the same type of product as if you were buying a basket worth $60.
  2. Working off of the first point, it is important to read the product descriptions, paying special attention to size and material. For example, the flower basket above is $7.95 with a 4.9 star rating. That is a great price for a beautiful and simple flower basket. However, as read in the product description, this basket is also 7 inches tall. So, while this may be perfect for your 3 year old flower girl, it may seem dwarfish in the hands of anyone over the age of 8. Imagine if you hadn't read the description and expected it to be larger; you might find yourself frustrated and thinking it was poor quality.
  3. The final tip for judging the quality of a product online is to read the reviews. By paying attention to star ratings and comments other shoppers have made, you can get an idea of what exactly you are buying. When doing this, be sure to look at both positive and negative reviews because what is bothersome to one person, may go unnoiticed to another.

Special Touch Flower Girl Baskets

 

 Special Touch Flower Girl BasketsStern Grove Wedding As one of the first to walk down the aisle, the flower girl is one of the first introductions to your wedding party look, so what you put your flower girl in can work to help set the tone. Flower girl dresses can be made to look like mini versions of the bridesmaid dresses, the wedding dress, or can be its own unique design that is in those wedding colors or wedding theme. One accessory that a flower girl can't go without is her flower basket! Like her dress, there are a variety of different designs you can choose from, but don't let yourself get too locked in to a typical flower basket and have some fun with it!

Flower Girl Basket with Embroidered Sheer Trim & Bows So, what are some options?

Taupe Pleated Silk Flower Basket

This flower basket (Taupe Pleated Silk Flower Basket) is not one that is necessarily out of the basket thinking, but it offers a put together look that will add style to your wedding. What is beautiful about this basket is that it offers a textured look, the cuteness of a bow, and a contrast to the starch white that is often featured in the flower girl look. So if you are looking to put your flower girl in white, we recommend using a colored basked like the one above to add dimension to your flower girl's color palette.

Burlap & Lace Flower Basket

Similarly to the taupe pleated flower basket, this lace and burlap basket offers up texture, color, and fashion. Additionally, it is completely one trend and works great across multiple wedding themes, including but not limited to country western, shabby chic, vintage, and fairy tale. With this in mind, one thing to look for when looking at a flower basket - just as with any wedding accessory - is to find one that adds to or otherwise incorporates your wedding theme. Thus, if you are having a beach themed wedding, then you will  want a beach oriented flower girl basket!

Then there are the non-basket flower baskets. A lot of brides are incorporating buckets or boxes instead of a basket. The above "Rose" flower basket is sort of in between in that it will be carried exactly like a basket, but its flower design sets it apart from its wicker basket kin. These are the type of flower baskets that really open the door for you to get creative.
