Brides who plan their own wedding find that one of the most frustrating matters to settle are the flower arrangements. Flowers play an important part in the venue décor as the role of decorations and symbolizing the new life that is blossoming the before bride and groom. It is no wonder that so much time, energy, and attention is paid to choosing and arranging the right flowers. Picking the right flowers for that special day is no easy task but a few tips can make the task a bit more manageable or you can arrange flowers delivery.
Brides quickly learn that flowers do not come cheap and weddings require a lot of flowers. There are the brides’ maid bouquets, center pieces, accent pieces, boutonnieres, corsages, and most importantly the bride’s bouquet. Depending on the size of the ceremony and the amount of flowers the budget allocated for floral arrangements can reach into the thousand dollar mark and well beyond it. Many brides simply cannot afford to spend that kind of money on flowers.
This does not mean that a wedding should be barren of beautiful blossoms. Brides should first sit down and figure out a realistic budget. While flowers are important in the wedding they are not the most important part of the day. It pays to shop around pricing different florists and looking online for various deals. If you are lucky and know a florist see if you can get a discount on buying flowers on wholesale. Once you have determined the flower budget stay with it.
Once you have your flower budget set you can figure out what types of flowers you want. Roses are a popular choice but expensive and are no longer unique as a choice for weddings. You can find some truly unique and beautiful flowers to adorn your wedding venue and to include in your bouquet without breaking your budget plan.
To help cut costs even further choose flowers that are in season. These flowers will be cheaper and easier to come by. Of course, if you want to splurge on the bridal bouquet then that is fine but for the centerpieces and other floral arrangements choose flowers that are in season.
When deciding on floral arrangements you have to be realistic. While a venue filled to the brim with beautiful flowers is every Bride’s dream budget constraints must be considered. A minimalist approach at decorating will allow the grace and dignity of the ceremony to shine brightly. Minimalist does not mean cheaply done and it is easy to design a stunning ceremony using this deign theory. Focusing on a few floral pieces instead of inundating the room with flowers will make the whole room pop.
A Final Thought
Planning a wedding is no easy task. Flowers are just one part of the ceremony and honestly not even the most important part. That honor goes to your new spouse and the vows. Flowers add color, life, and vibrancy to the room and ceremony but those qualities do not have to break the bank.
