One of the biggest expenses after your venue and your dress is the florals for your wedding. While nothing says love and romance like beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers everywhere when you are spending that much money on objects that are likely discarded after your big day, how can you make sure you get your money’s worth? A good way to feel good about your flowers is to find creative and multiple uses for them. You can also research different kinds of flowers that are perhaps less popular or less expensive but will look gorgeous on the one day that it matters. In this issue quality might not matter as much as quantity. If you want to fill a room with flowers for a lush wedding it is not each individual flower that will be examined but the overall effect which is a great thing to keep in mind when budgeting for wedding florals.
The most common uses for flowers in weddings is as bouquets or centerpieces. Your bouquet is obviously incredibly important and you want it to be a reflection of yourself. If you aren’t usually into something big and showy consider succulents or your favorite everyday flowers for an eco-friendly and budget-friendly option. You need not “go big or go home” with your wedding bouquet because it’s not about impressing anyone as much as it about expressing yourself and if daisies or carnations are your favorite flower don’t shy away from those choices. Your wedding bouquet will go to a good home if you toss it and you other florals could be pressed or preserved. Try thinking outside the box when it comes to flower arrangements. While florists will take care of the actual arrangements use your flowers are decoration or to add a soft touch to your ceremony and venue.
If you feel as though your flowers can bring something fresh and lovely to your wedding day then you’ve done it right.
