Saving Money on Wedding Flowers -Can you believe a florist advising against flowers at your wedding?

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

Okay, let me explain... When it comes to wedding planning, floral arrangements can take up a large portion of the budget. Brides want a Pinterest wedding, you know the wedding you see on Pinterest that you create your vision from. Those weddings are beautiful! But they are also often expensive. They use expensive high-end flower varieties, hard to get colors of those flowers, and large scale designs. I promise you that you can get a Pinterest wedding with a reasonable budget. Over the next few weeks, I will be explaining how. The first is to not use flowers. I mean to just not use them everywhere. One example is the current trendy design of bud vases for a harvest-style guest table. I see Brides shocked at how much putting 10 bud vases on a harvest table is. The truth is that you are paying for a lot of vases, labor, and sometimes more flowers than one or two arrangements on the table. But a great tip is to not have as many flowers to cover the space. Try 3-5 bud vases and mixing in a ratio of non-floral decor options will save you money without losing the look you are going for.

There are many non-floral decor options that can supplement your arrangements and help you save money. Here are some ideas to consider for your big day:

  1. Candles: Candles can add a romantic and elegant touch to your wedding decor. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, so you can easily find ones that match your wedding theme. You can use them as centerpieces, line the aisle, or place them on tables for a warm and cozy atmosphere.

  2. Lanterns: Lanterns are another great non-floral decor option that can create a romantic and intimate ambiance. They can be hung from trees or placed on tables to add a touch of rustic charm. You can also fill them with candles or fairy lights for an extra magical effect.

  3. Potted Plants: Potted plants are a unique and eco-friendly decor option that can save you money. They can be used as centerpieces or placed around the venue to add a natural and organic touch. You can choose from a variety of plants, such as succulents, ferns, or herbs, to match your wedding theme and style.

By incorporating non-floral decor options into your wedding, you can create a beautiful and unique atmosphere while also saving money. Whether you choose candles, lanterns, potted plants, or all three, your guests are sure to be impressed by the creativity and thoughtfulness of your decor choices.
