How to Save Money on Wedding Flowers
Learn what to order to get the most out of budget wedding flowers
If you want the look of a luxury wedding but you’re working with a tighter budget, you are not alone. Many couples choose faux flowers because of the 70% cost savings over a traditional florist. But deciding order quantities without the help of a wedding planner or florist can be challenging.
Below we will be demystifying the floral planning process so you can confidently place your floral order and get the most out of your floral budget.
To save money on wedding flowers, you’ll need to plan ahead. Before you select floral quantities, it helps to get a general idea of the following information:
- Do you plan on having a bridal party? If so, how big will it be?
- Do you plan on faux floral centerpieces for each reception table? If so, about how many tables will you have?
- Do you want floral centerpieces for any extra tables like the gift table or dessert table?
- Do you have any special guests you would like to honor like parents, siblings, or grandparents?
Once you have a basic estimate of the information above, you are ready to place your order. We make it easy to update your order size so if you are still planning details and don’t have exact counts, don’t fret.
When ordering, take it one element at a time.
Our bouquets come in three sizes. From largest to smallest we have: Bridal, Bridesmaid, and Mini. Typically, the bride(s) will get a Bridal size or Bridesmaid size and the wedding party will get the next size down.
If you plan on faux floral centerpieces at your reception tables or on any of your dessert tables, any of the three sizes will work perfectly. All of our bouquets easily insert into vases so any bouquets used during the ceremony can be placed into vases and used as centerpieces. This is a great way to save money on wedding flowers!
If you would like to save even more money on your décor, rent our stylish, affordable vases. Each vase description will list which bouquets sizes fit into it for hassle-free planning.
A boutonniere (a small bundle of flowers pinned on the front of an outfit) is often used to recognize the wedding party, the couple, or other honored guests. They are an easy, inexpensive way to make someone look and feel special.
Like boutonnieres, corsages are a great way to honor special guests. A small bundle of flowers on a bracelet, corsages are a classy way to recognize those you love.
Once you have a list of those you would like to honor with a boutonniere or corsage, we recommend placing your order. This number can always be changed later.
We also offer a variety of other floral elements: sign swags, garlands, aisle markers, and more. All of these are fun décor additions that can be used in many different ways.
When you save 70% by going with a non-traditional floral option rather than fresh flowers, you have extra room in the budget for a little bit extra!
