Flower Power Your Budget

Flowers bring such beauty to the overall look of your wedding! From bouquets to tablescapes, flowers can be incorporated any and everywhere. When selecting flowers and you are on a limited budget, you need to spend carefully. I've listed some suggestions to help you get through the process and save a little cash.

  • When dividing up your floral budget, create three categories - reception, wedding party and ceremony. Consider spending more for the reception as your guests will view these florals the longest.
  • When selecting your color palette, choose 2-3 based on your bridesmaid's dresses, season and setting. Some of my favorites are - red, turquoise and white; pale green, gray and deep purple; peach, raspberry and mocha; and lavender, raspberry and white.
  • Consider selecting flowers that bloom year round to cut on costs like roses, gerbera daisies and orchids.
  • Mix flowers and candles to create high or low arrangements and ask your florist for suggestions that fit within your budget.
  • Should you want to switch it up and not carry a bouquets, consider carrying a Bible or Prayer Book, candle, parasol or folding fans.
  • Consider renting live trees or green plants for the ceremony and add a few floral blooms for a punch of color.
  • Should you decide to DIY your flowers, check out companies like,, and who package wedding flowers and arrangements.
Until next time...WEDologize!
