Go double duty.
You can have the same floral arrangements for the ceremony and for the reception. You just need enough manpower to move stuff around while you are transitioning from one venue to the other. If everything is one place or venue, it will be even more convenient for you and you will be able to make the most out of your wedding flowers.
Buy in bulk.
The florist isn’t your only source for wedding flowers. A quick trip down to the farmer’s market to talk to the suppliers and to the wholesalers can cut you a price deal and can give you so much more option for the flowers for the wedding day. more than that, you can be rest assured that buying in bulk will give you more blooms for the wedding without stretching out your wedding budget that much. It is the perfect win for you as a bride. However, you need to know right out that it has always been and will always turn out to be a bit of a challenge because it means that you will be putting in a little bit of work somewhere along the way. This is a small price to pay though compared to the amount of savings you will be bringing in so it is still something worth thinking about.
Buy in season.
When flowers are in season, you get to make sure that you are able to maximize your wedding budget at some point or so. Although it may be true that wedding flowers are bound to cost you a lot of money, buying the flowers in season will more or less help you level off the financial blow a little bit. Always think about this and always consider this as much as possible. Think about the time of the year that the wedding day is happening in. do your research ahead of time. Ask your florist about the flowers that are in season at around that time of the year and make the most out of it. You can go with flowers that are in season and things will work out for you so much better at the end of the day. Buds that are in season are always the best way to go because you get to make the most out of your money. It gives you enough rope to run with for the rest of the other expenses that you have for the wedding day so far.
Bigger buds are always better.
It comes as no surprise how wedding flowers in general can end up costing you a lot of money but one way around this would be for you to go for a bigger bud selection when you are getting your floral arrangements for the wedding taken into account. Bigger buds technically mean that you are making the most out of the flowers that are being included. You don’t need as many buds and this can in turn save you a little bit of money somewhere in the process. More than that, the thing about bigger buds is that they are sturdier which technically means that they will last longer and take a longer time to wilt. You can even use them up as decorations long after the wedding is over so try to see how it will work out for you and ask your florist about it. Bigger buds are also more impressive looking so get this checked out one way or the other.
