The reality is that not everyone is fortunate enough to have an unlimited budget for their wedding day. Corners will have to be cut, some items struck off the list, may be some guests dropped, menus reworked and so much more, to make sure wedding costs stay within the budget.
Wedding flowers are most often a big budget item on the wedding list. However, you need to be aware that there are wholesale wedding flowers and wedding flower packages available for small budget weddings. No! It does not mean that you have to compromise on style and good taste. You can have beautiful blooms and still stay within the budget.
An interesting sidebar – the ancient Greeks are credited with using wedding flowers first. The Greeks of course used herbs in the bridal bouquet to ward of evil spirits and bring good luck. The original bridal bouquets were actually interwoven garlands and wreaths that the happy couple wore on their heads.
The traditional use of floral arrangements, bouquets and fresh wedding flowers in decoration make flowers one of the most visual parts of any wedding. Next to the beautiful bride and her gown of course! Investing time in researching and planning this particular aspect of the wedding planning process is well worth the effort. Every bride wants the best, but not at the cost of going bankrupt in the process.
Why not check out some of the ways by which you can get the flowers you always dreamed of having on your wedding day and still stick to your budget.
When planning the flowers, you need to consider choosing bulk wedding flowers to get the best prices. You are going to need personal flowers which will include your bouquet, the bridesmaids’ bouquets; boutonnieres for the groom, ushers, groomsmen, ring bearers, fathers, special male guests; corsages for mothers, grandmothers, great aunts, readers; flowers for the flower girls baskets and maybe their hair. Flowers for the ceremony venue will include the altar, aisle arrangements, arches and pew markers. Flowers for the reception site will include the guest book table, cake table, centerpieces for the bridal table, guest tables, favor table, gift table, buffet tables, miscellaneous tables and other locations you choose.
One way of sticking to the budget with your wedding flowers selection is to choose the blooms by season. Choosing flowers that bloom in June when the wedding is in October is probably going to triple the cost of the flowers. And you have the added problem of quality; the fresh wedding flowers you buy will lack in quality in a big way.
Not everyone can do a ‘Martha Stewart’ turning anything into something, but this is your wedding day we are talking about. Creativity will come because you will feel inspired for this special day. Take the time to study flowers, their colors and seasons before you decide on what you would like. Find a florist who will guide you in your choices and offer useful advice.
