Your wedding day…so special, and it just has to be perfect. The perfect dress, delicious food, A gorgeous venue, adorned with blooming flowers to tie it all together. The trick is to plan all of the must-haves while staying within your budget. Check out these tips and tricks to maximize your floral budget:
Pick flowers that are currently in season.
It’s much easier for the florist to order, and will make your photos seem more natural. Using flowers that are in-season will add a little bit of personalization, forever allowing you to remember and celebrate the season you and your husband said: “I do.”
2. Use flowers that are locally grown.
Not only would it save you a few bucks, but helping out a local business is always a good idea in my book. In doing so, you would be supporting your community – while having a unique, stunning look on your special day!
3. Create an arrangement that leaves a huge impression right off the bat.
Make a statement that will draw your guests’ attention. Put a few large arrangements on an entry table and add small simple arrangements here and there throughout the reception area.
5. Add more greenery.
Leaves spread out more than flowers do and take up a larger amount of space. Having bright flowers that contrast with the dark greenery will definitely give your arrangement a classic look. Your guests will love it!
5.Choose a collection that includes large flowers.
Not only will it add statement and drama to your arrangements, you will need less flowers if you select ones that have larger blooms. Plus, it takes way less time for your florist to arrange.
