Here are some budget ideas for your wedding -- ways to have a beautiful visual impact without spending a fortune.
First, make a checklist of all of the wedding flowers you will need.
Use only in season and readily available flowers. Be honest with your florist about your budget, and have them recommend the most inexpensive flowers.
When you go to your local florist give them a general style and color sceme.
You will want to give the florist some flexibility so they can use what is in season and cheapest.
There are certain times of the year when certain flowers cost a fortune, and other times when they are so cheap you can fill your hall with them.
To waive high costs try avoiding having your wedding in February when flower prices are at an annual high due to Valentine's Day.
To save on decorating costs try to hold your wedding during the Christmas season or immediately after Easter when a church will already be decorated.
When using large arrangements on an alter that can only be seen from far away use inexpensive flowers. Some inexpensive flowers are carnations. There are people who think that they can save money by moving the ceremony flowers to the reception. However, keep in mind that many churches and houses of worship require you to leave the flowers.
Florists also hate to move flowers because large arrangements are hard to transport, and can become easily bruised or damaged in transit.
Another cost saving idea is to find a venue such as a park or garden that is already lush and beautiful.
You might also try talking to your venues and see if any other brides have booked for the same day.
If the two of you can coordinate flowers and split the cost, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll save a lot of money.
You may want to consider ordering flowers from an online wholesaler where you can get better prices by comparison shopping.
Unlike at a florist, you will be responsible for all of the prep work of cleaning and trimming them, and keeping them alive until the wedding. (I would get a book perhaps used to show one how to trim the flowers)
