Flowers always end up costing more than you budget for, their seasonality, the designer making bouquets, etc. all add up to a fluctuating cost that can easily put you out of budget. Below we have some ideas for cheap wedding flowers.
Cheap Wedding Flowers
Choose flowers that are in season for your wedding date
Flowers work much like produce when it comes to pricing. When produce isn’t in season the price goes up, and the same can be said for flowers. By choosing floral arrangements that are in season you’ll save big money!
Cheaper flowers can work too
Another option is to choose flower types that are just generally cheaper. Certain varieties usually cost less than others – a carnation vs. a rose for example. Keeping this in mind you can afford more for less and end up with arrangements that make your guests’ jaws drop!
Silk flowers bring money flowers
No one ever said your flowers had to be real. Silk flowers don’t die and wilt away – thus allowing you to source them online and buy them ahead of time. They also can be reused or even resold on eBay (which may be a good place to check for yours). And you won’t have to worry about seasonality or flower type here!
Saving Money On Flowers
Split the cost
If you talk to your venue or have a friend getting married within 24 hours of you, you could invite them to have the same flowers as you and you split the cost – saving both of you money.
Holidays can be magical
Having your wedding around a holiday can be a catch-22 but when it comes to decor you may be able to save quite a bit! Getting married around Christmas, for example, allows you to utilize existing decorations and commonly available Christmas decor to build up your tables and ambient decor.
