Because you’re paying for a specialist service – one that includes consultation, sourcing, arranging, installation and pack down – cheap wedding flowers aren’t easy to come by. So, we’ve put together a few inside tips to help you get the most value out of your wedding flowers – while saving money where you can.
REUSE CEREMONY FLOWERS
Repurposing ceremony flowers into reception flowers is a simple, cost-effective way to add value to your wedding. Bridal bouquets can be reused to make a stunning bridal table statement, while aisle flowers can be transformed into centrepieces or hung as an installation in the space.
If you can’t source cheap wedding flowers, consider getting crafty with other aspects of the event. You can make unique, striking confetti by gathering and hole punching leaves. Minimal cost, maximum effect, and environmentally friendly!
There’s a lot of wastage at weddings, but pre-planning environmentally-conscious options can help free up budget for other things. (Like flowers.) Invite people to your special day with e-invites or recycled paper, ask for biodegradable floral foam tiles and use bamboo plates and cutlery.
Lush greenery is trending at the moment, with beautiful, leafy garlands featuring as the star florals of many weddings. Leaves, vines and ferns are a stunning and affordable way to bring some rustic elegance to the big day.
