Wedding Flowers on a Budget

You’re planning your wedding and you just don’t have a large budget for your flowers. What’s a bride to do? Let me give three suggestions to stretch your flower budget.

  1. Use high and low centerpiece arrangements.  The low or smaller arrangements will be less expensive than the larger or tall arrangements.  You also give visual interest to your reception area.
  2. You want to work with an expensive florist but you just don’t have the budget for his work.  You can have your florist make your wedding party bouquets.  You can then have a less expensive florist make your center pieces.  You get the best of both worlds….high end bouquets and reasonably priced center pieces.
  3. Use alternatives to flowers, especially for your ceremony site.  Try candles along your walkway (use laterns or other vessels to enclose any flames), use white ribbons on the pews or chairs or even bunches of baby breaths to make a statement.

Don’t despair if your flower budget is tight.  These tips will help you to find a way to get the look you want within your budget.

Happy planning!
