Flowers on a Budget

Weddings and flowers kinda go hand in hand. From bouquets and boutonnieres, to aisle décor, centerpieces and petal tosses, flowers fit into every part of your big day. However, as DIY brides looking to save a buck you probably know by now that fresh flowers can quickly eat up a big chunk of your wedding budget. Never fear! Whether you are looking for budget friendly ways to introduce blooms to your wedding, or you’d prefer to stay away from fresh cut stems for eco-conscious reasons, there are ways to bring in floral elements and have the wedding of your dreams.
1. Use florals on your paper goods
The Allison invitation set is full of colorful blooms on the invitation, rsvp and insert card so your wedding day can be full of flowers, without spending a dime at the florist.
2. Get married in a garden
Summer is the perfect opportunity to get married outdoors. If you get married in a garden, the garden will provide blooms at every turn. Let nature do the decorating for you!
3. Make flowers
Oversize crepe paper flowers can make a stunning bouquet and centerpieces. You don’t need to be super crafty to put these together yourself. The bigger the flowers, the less you’ll have to make!
4. Limit your choice and buy wholesale
You don’t need to cut out fresh blooms completely if you are on a budget. Wholesale flowers are reasonably priced, particularly if you don’t mind doing the arrangements yourself. Limit yourself on your floral choices to keep the price down and have them shipped to you in bulk. Then go to town making bouquets and centerpieces.
5. Add plenty of greenery and other elements
To help your flowers go further add in plenty of greenery. Lush leaves mixed with blooms still gives the illusion of an abundance of flowers. Or instead of greenery opt to mix your florals with an out-of-the-box alternative. Brooches in your bouquet, feathers in your centerpieces, candles, sticks, pinecones, and buttons can all be combined for interesting and textured wedding elements.
6. Use non-traditional flowers – and grow your own
Roses, lilies and orchards are all gorgeous, but costly. Wildflowers and herbs are equally gorgeous and much more budget friendly, or if you have the space at home grow your own! With a little planning this is a very doable choice. (If you don’t have the green thumb in your family employ the help of your most horticulturally inclined relative as a wedding gift.)
