After choosing your perfect wedding venue it’s time to discuss your style, colors, and what type of wedding decor would suit you and your partner. A good starting point is discussing your favorite flowers and colors and building from there. The second factor would be your floral budget. As a general rule using flowers that are local and in season will bring your cost down. Also opting for low centerpieces vs. tall centerpieces will be more budget-friendly. You can also alternate tall and low centerpieces to create a more dimensional look.
Another way to lower your overall floral cost is to have larger tables and sit your guests 12 per table instead of a typical 10, the lower the number of tables, the lower the number of centerpieces.
When it comes to a bridal bouquet, I suggest that my clients not skimp here and choose something personal and meaningful. If you want exotic flowers, this is the place to use them.
For bridesmaids bouquets, you can simply pick a few types of flowers that you used in your bouquet and create either a mini version of your bouquet (minus the extravagant flowers) or make a monochromatic version of your bridal bouquet.
Have fun and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses!
