Wedding Budget TIps For Flowers

Wedding Flowers

If your dream wedding design features thousands of flowers, in full bloom and creating spectacular décor for your ceremony and reception, you can get an even more dramatic floral effect on a budget by following these top tips:

  • Always buy flowers that will be in-season at the time of your wedding. In-season flowers are more plentiful and therefore cost less.
  • Choose more locally-grown flowers. Your wedding floral designer can show you images of terrific, unique flowers and wildflowers grown native to our area, which will often cost a lot less than flowers that have to be imported from exotic areas.
  • Choose non-bridal flowers that may cost less. Some flowers are considered more ‘bridal’ than others – such as white roses, gardenias, calla lilies, stephanotis, and others – and at certain times of the year may cost more. Instead, look at unique flowers such as zinnia, ranunculus, and especially the top trend peony for beautiful effect on a budget.
  • Loosely-bunched wedding bouquets are in for a more romantic look, which means fewer flowers may be needed. Read more…

Honor Parents

Honoring Parents

In the past, parents were seen as the hosts of the wedding, based on their names being featured on the wedding invitation. They may have participated in the ceremony, and stood in the receiving line, and the father danced with the bride.

Now, according to top wedding trends, there are even more ways to honor your parents, and their lifetime of love and support, at your wedding celebrations, regardless of how much they may be paying for the wedding itself. Today’s bride and groom are more likely to pay for much of the wedding themselves, but they still want to pay lovely tribute to their parents and step-parents, as the case may be. Read more…
