Your wedding colors are very important which means taking flower seasons into consideration for your wedding date. The cost of flowers not available in the current season is quite expensive. The additional cost of these flowers can easily force you to cut your flower needs in half to accommodate the inflated cost.
A great way to save money on your wedding is by using other alternatives to flower arrangements. For your flower girl, instead of using a floral wreath, consider using ribbon instead for a simple, elegant and cost effective look. Decorate your ceremony with silk flowers instead of fresh live ones. Using silk flowers not only saves you money, but you are able to keep it forever. You can move it from place to place and even use it from your ceremony to your wedding reception.
Shop around! Make sure you call plenty of florists when you are pricing flowers for your big day. Wedding flowers can be one of the costliest parts of your planning process. You may want to look into creating your own arrangements and buying your flowers from a wholesale outlet. There are many flower arranging tips online that can help.
The flowers you choose for your bridal bouquet are extremely special. They are the flowers that you will hold as you walk down the isle. Take care that you choose a bouquet that you will love and that complement the rest of the wedding flowers you have chosen.
When choosing your wedding flowers, don't choose colors that match the dresses. A flower that is the same color as your gown, or your bridesmaid gowns, will give the appearance of added inches to the waistline in all of your pictures. Colors that are different from the dress will subtract inches. Choose contrasting colored flowers to make everyone look better in those wedding photographs.
Save money on expensive floral arrangements and centerpieces by creating a more relaxed, informal, tea party-inspired reception area or wedding breakfast. Think delicate: small, dainty, fragrant pink and yellow rosebuds, affordable carnations, and tiny daisies. You can use vintage teacups and place settings to complete the look. Instead of a large, tiered cake, inquire about sweet, perfectly portioned petit fors.
Seasonal wedding flowers are a great way to mark the season that your wedding will take place in if you will be taking most of your photos indoors. Sometimes seasonal flowers can be expensive, so it can be a smart financial decision to combine seasonal greens with plants that are available year round such as roses, lilies, and gerber daisies.
