If you plan to get married in the near future, you will need to hire a florist to help you with the floral arrangements. When you meet the florist, he or she will need to know what you want your arrangements to look like. It is important to know that flowers can be quite expensive, but there are a few things that you can do to cut down on the overall cost of the flowers you use at your wedding and reception. The following guide walks you through a few ways to lower your flower budget.
Use Baby's Breath to Create Subtle Décor
Baby's breath is often very inexpensive. You can use baby's breath as the centerpieces at your reception by placing the baby's breath in a glass jar, adding ribbon to the outside of the jar, and placing a lit candle on either side of the jar.
Roses Aren't Essential
Roses can be a very expensive flower to use at your wedding and reception. Instead, consider using less expensive flowers, but have them arranged in a unique way so that they look even more beautiful than they already are. If you use different types of flowers, it can often add depth and dimension to your arrangements.
Have Your Flowers Dyed
Brides often have specific colors they want to feature in their wedding. If there are specific colors you want to have in your wedding, consider having flowers dyed to match your color scheme. There are some colors of flowers that can be very expensive simply because they are so hard to find. Having the flowers dyed will save you time and money.
Less Can Sometimes be More
Consider carrying a single flower, such as a lily with a ribbon wrapped around the stem. You do not have to have a huge bouquet to look beautiful on your big day. You could also consider using your bouquet and the bridesmaids' bouquets as the centerpieces for the tables at your reception to save even more money on the flowers.
Once you have considered all of the ways that you can cut down on the cost of your flowers, your florist can start designing the arrangements. You will get to see an example of what the arrangements will look like before they are all created. This allows you to be sure that you like the way that they look and can have any changes made that you feel are necessary.
