As florists, we understand that wedding flowers can be a significant expense. However, you don't have to sacrifice style to save money on your wedding flowers. In this blog post, we will share some tips on how to save money on wedding flowers without compromising on the style of your wedding.
Give your florist autonomy on what flowers to use
Choosing flowers that are in season is a great way to save money on your wedding flowers. Flowers that are in season are more abundant, which means they are less expensive. Giving your florist autonomy on what blooms to choose that fit with your colour and style will mean they can select the best bloom for the job, at the best price.
Repurpose your flowers
Repurposing your wedding flowers is a great way to get the most out of your investment. For example, you could use the same flowers for both the ceremony and reception. Or, you could repurpose your bouquets at the reception in spots like the bar and gift table. By repurposing your flowers, you can save money and reduce waste.
Use greenery in the design
Greenery is a fantastic addition to your wedding flowers as it can add texture and depth to your arrangements while keeping costs down. While greenery can still be costly to purchase, it can be used to fill out and cover up mechanics, particularly in larger installations. This means that using greenery can work out to be more cost-effective than an all-floral look. By incorporating greenery into your wedding floral design, you can create a lush, natural look that complements your wedding style while staying within your budget.
Limit the number of arrangements
Limiting the number of arrangements you need can be a great way to save money on your wedding flowers. Instead of having elaborate centerpieces on every table, consider having a few statement pieces and using simple bud vases for the rest. Additionally, you could use larger arrangements at key focal points, such as the ceremony and keep other spaces more minimal.
In conclusion, there are many ways to save money on wedding flowers without sacrificing style. By choosing seasonal flowers, using greenery, repurposing your flowers, and limiting the number of arrangements, you can create stunning wedding flowers that fit within your budget. We are here to help you create the perfect wedding flowers that reflect your style and personality, while also keeping costs down.
