If you're looking for an easy way to save up to a thousand dollars on your wedding, considering less traditional options for your flowers can help!
If you're a person who LOVES flowers, this cost saving option may not be for you. Remember, don't skimp on your favorite elements for your wedding. If you're a flower person - get gorgeous bouquets and table arrangements, and save on cake or linens. If you absolutely love sweets - get a delicious cake or sweets table and save on flowers. It's all about balancing out your budget!
Here are four easy ways to save money on your wedding flowers.
1. Design or Rent Non-Floral Centerpieces.
Even the simplest floral centerpieces can be $45 per table. Opting for decorated lanterns, candle arrangements, or faux flowers (AKA: "permanent botanicals") can easily save you hundreds. In addition to being elegant and affordable, non-floral centerpieces can be set up as early as you'd like and are hardier than floral arrangements - especially for outdoor receptions.
2. Choose Affordable Flowers for Your Bouquets.
Depending on the season, certain flowers can be very affordable and make for gorgeous bouquets, including baby's breath, sunflowers, gerbera daisies and more. Sensibly Stunning Events can work with your theme to develop and provide affordable bouquet options. Contact us for a quote!
3. Don't Have Bridesmaid Bouquets.
Depending on your wedding theme and color scheme, there are many non-floral options for bridesmaids. They can hold lanterns, pretty pinwheels, storybook rose bouquets (with flowers made from book pages), vintage feather fans and more!
With this option, the bride can order a single bouquet for herself, or opt for a non-floral arrangement as well. There are several silk, brooch and pearl bouquets available that are just gorgeous!
4. Opt for Permanent Botanical Bouquets. These days, so many faux flowers look amazing, especially in bridal bouquets. You'll find that in pictures, these bouquets look real. Stores like Michael's have gorgeous faux flowers and succulents that fit any wedding theme. Sensibly Stunning Events specializes in permanent botanical bouquets and can help design something perfect for your wedding day.
