How to Choose the Best Wedding Flowers on a Budget

just-marriedFinding wedding flowers on a budget can seem like an impossible task out of your nightmares. As a bride, you have likely dreamed of your wedding day since you were a little girl. Now that you have found a man worthy enough to call a husband, you finally have a real wedding to plan. The problem is, weddings can be incredibly expensive, and you’re probably wondering how you can do it all on a tight budget. Luckily for you, wedding flower arrangements are one of the easiest places to save money without your guests even realizing it.

The reason why you can save a ton of money without sacrificing looks is because once you find a talented wedding florist, they will be able to help you. When you walk into a florist shop, you can ask about the different types of flowers, and once you sit down with the florist, you’ll be able to give them a color scheme and/or the types of flowers you generally like. This will allow them to pick out samples for you to look at.

If you’re looking to save money, there are many flowers that look similar, and can “stand in” for more expensive flowers. That’s just one of the ways you can cut costs. Another way is using more obscure flowers. That’s not to say you should use flowers that are more rare, because that will cost you. But use flowers that generally aren’t thought of as wedding flowers. It’s worth noting that the most widely known lily is the Madonna lily, which is white and yellow. A florist might advise you that in Russia, red tulips mean romantic love, and that carnations have different meanings as well; red is deep love, yellow is dejection, and white is pure love.

You can use being on a budget to your advantage. Break out of those clichés and find unique flowers. Use flowers that no one else would think of using in a wedding. Not only will you save money, but you’ll stand out in a beautiful way on your big day.
