Flowers add so much to a wedding or even any other set up, but they can be really expensive. Anyways, there are some ways to easily cut flower costs!
Maybe you've been caught up in Valentine's Day fever, and you and your partner have been thinking about taking your relationship to the next level? Or perhaps you've been planning it for a while now, and you want to celebrate your wedding soon.
Whatever the case, these tips for saving money on flowers will do you good:
1. Go for smaller arrangements
I touched on this a little bit in the last tip, but cutting down on size will cut down on costs. Ask your florist if scaling back on the size of arrangements, bouquets, or ceremony backdrop will help cut back on cost. Smaller arrangements can still have big impact.
2. Use local and seasonal blooms
While this isn’t always an option, it never hurts to ask! Talk to your florist and see if local and seasonal blooms are available the time of year you are getting married and within your color palette.
3. Be flexible and go for bigger blooms
There are several less expensive options out there that can be great filler flowers for bulking up a bouquet rather than focusing on only using popular, expensive blooms.
Using a couple blooms that are bigger and take up more space is also a great way to cut back on the amount of blooms that will be needed!
4. Reuse your blooms!
One of the best ways to save money on florals is to reuse your florals. Your guests will (in most cases) not be seeing your ceremony and reception set ups at the same time. Take things that are being used for your ceremony and reuse them at your reception.
5. Do some of it yourself
If you are wanting to try your hand at putting together floral arrangements, this is a good chance, but make sure you can put together whatever you are going to put together before your wedding day.
