How You Can Save Money When Shopping for Wedding Flowers

by Robert Canning on June 17, 2022

When it comes to wedding planning, it’s not right to simply compromise on what’s available for you. Every critical component of your wedding must complement the type of person you are and your relationship, even when it comes to the flowers you choose.

Every bride wants beautiful flowers on her wedding day. However, it requires a particular investment. If you wish to retain your style while also considering your budget, there are some simple things you can do to achieve your goal.

1. Avoid the Peak Season

The most expensive time of the year to get married is during spring and summer. You can see an increase of 30 to 50 per cent in the price you’re paying for your wedding flowers during this time.

You should also try to veer from Valentine's Day. During this time, a lot of people give flower arrangements to their loved ones. You can save up to 50 per cent of what you’re paying during peak wedding season by simply having your wedding during the off-peak season. 

2. Choose Affordable Flowers

When it comes to flowers, it’s really easy to fall in love with so many varieties that you’ll never know where to start. However, this is one reason why you must be extra careful when choosing premium flowers for your big day.

Consider going for natural-looking flowers. You can get the same look at a much lower price.

3. Create a Realistic Budget

It’s not a secret that everything you need for your wedding will cost you a considerable sum of money. But, this also means that you have to be careful about every expense you make. To do this, be realistic about your budget. You don’t have to allocate a massive amount of money for your wedding flowers just because that’s the norm.

4. Select the Flowers in Season

You can save up a lot of money by choosing flowers in season. If you buy them from a flower market, you can get cut flowers at half the price of fresh flowers. You’ll be surprised just how much difference there is in the quality.

5. Add Foliage and Spruce It Up

Adding foliage is something that a lot of people miss. You probably shouldn’t underestimate the effect foliage can bring to your wedding table. This is one of the best ways to add volume, volume, and texture to your table without breaking the bank.

Think about it this way: you can use hydrangeas and leafy greens to create a gorgeous centrepiece. You can add floral picks and other decorative elements to your centrepieces. You can also use flowers as a means to decorate your wedding cake.

6. Have a Floral Arrangement Appointment

It’s usually a good idea to meet with a florist at least twice. This way, you can clarify your vision for your wedding flowers. You’re also going to be able to get a feel of how the florist works. This is also a good time for you to discuss your budget and the specific flowers you want to use.

Final Thoughts 

Whether you’re flying in your wedding flowers, getting them locally, or using fresh flowers only, there are ways to save money on your wedding day. You can reduce your budget by following the tips listed above and spend less for a wedding that will still indeed be memorable for you.
