Weddings are not cheap at all and everyone knows this. But on the other hand, can you imagine a wedding where there are no flowers? We all know that flowers can brighten up the special day and make the wedding even more special.
There are so many things you need to pay for during a wedding including caterers and videographers. So to some of you, spending a lot of money on flowers may not be acceptable and reasonable. This article aims to provide you with ways in which you can still have a wedding filled with beautiful flowers yet not pay a mini fortune.
One of the greatest problems is that no one likes a cheapskate. You cannot simply go to a florist and ask them to provide you with the cheapest wedding flowers that will still make your wedding look sophisticated. Florists make a lot of profit from weddings, so may be reluctant to save you money.
The best thing to do is to pick your own flowers and just inform the florist about what it is that you want. But how do you decide which flowers will work out cheaper for you, but still be perfect for your big day.
What you need to know is that the price of flowers changes throughout the year. This is because there are certain seasons where flowers grow, and some where they do not. A common example is the Daffodils, which are common and inexpensive during the spring, but are rather expensive throughout the other seasons. Therefore, always pick flowers that are in season, since they will work out cheaper for you.
Flower colours also play a big part in determining the price of the flower. Flowers that are common colours such as red, white and yellow work out a lot cheaper than flowers that are blue or purple, since they are rare to find. Therefore, picking colours that are common will end up saving you lot of money too.
If you are going to have flower arrangements at the wedding, you will have to think twice about what could save you money. Flower arrangements that are simpler will obviously work out cheaper than the larger, more extravagant ones. If you definitely want to use exotic flowers in your arrangement, there is still a way of being able to save money. Rather than including numerous exotic flowers, only include a few stems of the exotic flower and use cheaper flowers to fill up the arrangement.
Want to know the best way of saving money? Do not use a florist! Whilst they are professional and are highly experienced, they do require payment. By cutting out all florists, you can potentially save yourself a lot of money. So where do you get your flowers from? Well flowers are available from practically anywhere nowadays. A simple supermarket will have fresh flowers and vases etc. Everything that you could possibly want can be purchased independently.
Remember that greenery can also spice up an arrangement. Purchasing greenery is not hard at all and you will see that there is a significant difference in price. Use a lot of greenery to make the arrangement look fuller. In this way, you would be able to use fewer flowers, yet still have an attractive looking arrangement.
By changing a few things and making some choice differences, you could end up saving yourself a lot of money. This way, you can still have the perfect wedding without burning a hole in your wallet.
