Beautiful flowers are an iconic part of any wedding ceremony- from the bridal bouquet to the table centerpieces, a wedding without flowers seems incomplete. However, for many couples, their choice of flowers can be the thing that makes or breaks the wedding budget. Couples planning a wedding will quickly find that popular blooms like peonies can cost a small fortune, particularly when not in season, while carnations are always comparatively cheaper. However, what about everything in between? How do you make the most of your flower budget for your wedding? Keep scrolling to get some tips!
Hydrangeas have huge flower heads, which means you can use less. They are a great option whether you use them on their own or mixed in with other flowers. And hydrangeas can be submerged in water to bring them back to life if they start to wilt.
2. Baby’s Breath
Baby’s breath has been the champion of budget flowers for decades. It’s a perfect wedding flower choice for couples who are looking to stretch their flower budget.
3. Peonies & Roses
Yes, peonies have romantic over-sized blooms and most brides love peonies, but peonies are relatively expensive. Roses in full bloom are a less costly alternative to peonies due to similarity in size, color palette and fragrance. If you find you must absolutely have peonies you can get away with using less because the flowers are so big and mix in cheaper blooms (like roses) to fill out your bouquet.
When mixed in with more expensive flowers of a similar color, carnations always take advantages of the awesomeness of their nearby neighbors. So carnations are the great filler for many wedding arrangements and we all know that they are inexpensive.
Skip the expensive flowers all together and opt for gorgeous greenery on your wedding day instead. Lush green leaves make beautiful table runners and fill out bouquets for a fraction of the cost of flowers.
