Budget is a huge consideration when planning your big day and your wedding florals are a significant portion of that budget. Your wedding flowers will be one of the most photographed details of your wedding so it’s understandable why you want to spend the time and money. However, with a little creativity you can achieve an exquisite floral look without breaking the bank.
1. Go Green
Consider using more greenery than flowers in your centerpieces. Using flowers as accent pieces in your centerpieces rather than as the main focus allows you to incorporate your favorite florals in a budget-friendly way. Succulents are another way to add a trendy green vibe – use them in centerpieces, wedding bouquets, or boutonnieres!
2. Use Substitutes
Many times, you can swap one type of flower for another less expensive flower. For example, swap calla lilies for tulips, which are similar in shape. If you love the style of orchids, switch cymbidium orchids out for less expensive dendrobium orchids. Lavender and daffodil are also excellent substitutes.
3. Kissing Ball Pomanders
Wood curl kissing ball pomanders add instant color and texture to your wedding style without breaking the bank. Pomanders are especially versatile – use them to adorn pews, as bouquets, or as centerpieces. You can also combine them with fresh flowers or crystal elements for a dramatic reception decor look.
4. Silk Flowers
Sometimes you may come across a gorgeous floral arrangement and find yourself asking if the flowers are real or fake. Silk flowers are extremely convenient because they don’t wilt or require water, are lightweight and thus easier to handle and transport, and are durable in any setting. They’re also just as gorgeous as the real thing!
