Now that you will soon be walking down that aisle, you need to realize that despite all the plans in place for this day, nothing else will be as important as that union with your soul mate. Flowers are pretty and can transform a wedding venue into a bubbly and lively place. You definitely want them as part of your décor.
However, spending so much on wedding flowers for a day might border on overindulgence. Additionally, when it comes to flowers, sometimes less is more. You absolutely do not want these items of decor stealing your show. The amount you spend on flowers is totally up to you. Forget the showcase; your union will be the greatest celebration on this day. If you are creative enough, you can easily be able to cut down that cost and still manage to have a beautiful set up. Here is how:
This can never be said enough – Do not get fixated on one type of wedding flower. Do not limit your options. Think of it this way- market demand, weather conditions and other issues can cause a sharp increase in flower prices.
Alternatives such as getting fresh flowers or the flowers in season will go a long way in slashing that budget. Being open minded allows for creativity. How about replacing those floral centre pieces with dramatic candle bars?
Stay in season and repurpose
Once again your choice of flowers will make or break you budget. If roses are in season and available at a cheap price, why not use them? Another way to save on flowers is to repurpose them. Think of how much you can actually save by getting those flowers that you used in the church and rearranging them at the reception. A good wedding planner will be there to ensure that the same wedding flowers are set up differently, maintaining the same splashy display of beauty.
Consider Budget Friendly Options
Flowers are lovely, so naturally you may want them in their entire splendor – until you hear the price. However, there are many options that are more pocket friendly. Instead of using expensive flowers such as roses and orchids, you can use other varieties that are cheaper but still lovely.
Picking wild flowers for a bouquet helps in substituting costly flowers. A mix of flowers adds up to a higher amount than one type of flower, but the latter can still be perfect with addition of greens.
