  • You don’t need to use a lot of flowers in the arrangement. Select a minimal amount of big flowers with lots of seasonal greeneries, plants, or herbs, like Eucalyptus. These are very fresh greens and they smell good, too.
  • We always suggest to our clients to re-use outdoor wedding ceremony flowers for banquet decorations.  For example, the flower pillars can be moved to the stage. The chair flowers can also be rearranged the as the dining table centerpiece. This avoids duplicates of decor that spikes up the cost.
  • The dining table centerpiece could be one of the highest cost decor in a wedding. One way to lower the price is to use many tiny vases with one or two stems of seasonal flowers or greeneries alongside tea candles in lieu of one big flower arrangement. This will definitely bring down the price tag!

  • Discuss your budget and specifications with the florist at the onset. Your florist also needs to know all the guidelines–such as style and color palette–as early as possible. It would be great, too, if you allow some creative freedom to your florist for as long as it fits your budget.
  • Consider green or non-floral decoration as an alternative. Want to break away from the tradition and cut costs? Try an arrangement full of greenery instead of flowers. It can achieve the look at a lower cost without sacrificing style.
  • Pinterest is popular go-to site among brides-to-be nowadays, yet do avoid asking the florist to replicate the exact flower arrangement in reference photos. Instead, look into the references carefully and try to find out why you like them. Then the florist can arrange the flowers according to your feel and have the chance to use seasonal flowers in an economical way.
