Cost Saving Tips for Your Wedding

Written by Joanna on Monday, 17 September 2012. Posted in DIY Wedding Ideas


Tips to Save on Wedding Floral Costs:

  • Choose seasonal flowers
  • Create unique boutineeres with non-floral items
  • Choose a few high impact stems to "dress up" a modest arrangement
  • Mass large quanities of inexpensive flowers together for high impact and low cost
  • Use accessories, ei. stylish ribbons or unusal centerpiece containers, that caputure attention instead of pricey blooms
  • Use less blooms and more accessories, ei. fabric or paper items to decorate the room instead of florals
  • Consult an experienced florist before deciding what you must have.  The specific flower you'd like might be a poor choice for your wedding season (doesn't do well in heat or is out of season during that month.)  A florist can provide afforable alternatives.
  • Choose a mix of silk and fresh - decor arrangements can be potted plants or natural shrubs.  Rustic greenery can provide a romantic natural ambieance.
  • Don't skimp on style for the bride's bouquet.  This will be featured in every photo and play centerstage.  Be creative in design choices for the remaining bridal party.  Bridesmaid bouquets can be simplified or downsized. Pull accent flowers from the bride's bouquet to maintain a consistant scheme.

This yellow/grey board feature bouquets at 3 different price points, several backdrop options emphasizing paper and fabric decor, creative boutonieres featuring felt, dried florals, or pom poms.  Centerpiece options range from lush arrangements to fun drinks tubs to elegant scattered stems - all with eye catching impact.  Contact TLP for an inspiration board in your color scheme!
