Go foraging for wild wedding flowers.
Even if the thought or the aspect of bring in wild wedding flowers might sound a bit off in the beginning, they have actually been making waves in the wedding industry all over the world. Believe it or not, once you get things done the right way, they can turn up pretty beautifully and more than that, you can be rest assured that they will save you so much money somewhere in the process. You don’t have to go through traditional wedding flowers if they don’t really fit in well with your budget. You don’t have to challenge your finances that much. Try to see if you can go around and forage in your local area. It will surprise you how the basic local flora can be so interesting and so try to go tap into that.
Repurpose your flowers.
If you are planning to have two different venues for the wedding ceremony and for the wedding reception party, you don’t need to pay for 2 different sets of flowers for them. Pay for one set and get them transferred to the other. Get them repurposed and you will have everything rolling for you without stretching out your wedding budget all that much at the end of the day. You can even go as far as using the bridesmaids bouquets as centrepieces. You can have a little contest about it and give out a little token or prize to the one who sets up the best centrepiece so far. Of course, an even better way of getting the flowers for the wedding repurposed would be to hold the ceremony and the reception all in one venue. Think about it. It is practical and convenient and when it all comes down to it, it happens to make perfect sense so far so try to think about it.
Go for more greens.
More buds mean more money and thus, more expenses on your end. Aim to incorporate a little more greenery in the flower arrangements so that you can save up on the costs that you are racking up somewhere along the way. There are a lot of options out there from extra leaves to ferns and even to baby’s breath sprigs.
Incorporate some fruits in the arrangements.
It doesn’t all have to be flowers all the time. As a matter of fact, something like this can be quite expensive and it is the type of thing that you can do without at the end of the day. The visuals can be quite breathtaking and can be quite unique, as a matter of fact. More than that, it helps to know that fruits are available in bulk from your local farmer’s market. If you would like to save up a little bit more, try to see if you can go for fruits that are in season. Get in on the wedding trend. It has arrived and it is actually here to stay so you might as well keep it in consideration.
