When ordering your wedding ceremony and reception flowers, there are a few things you should know to make the process flow more smoothly...and also save you a few dollars. Consider a few of the points below:
- Chose flowers that are in season to save on costs. Tulips are a fortune in the summer and fall.
- Order a toss bouquet. Your actual wedding bouquet, as expensive as it is, should not be tossed into a crowd of single woman to tear apart.
- Use the bridesmaids bouquets as decor for the head table. I mean, what are they really going to do with them after the ceremony?
- Always order the groom and extra boutonniere. Once the ceremony is over and the groom has hugged plenty of guests, it's a good look for him to enter into the reception with a fresh flower verses a smashed flower.
- Add fresh florals to your wedding cake over sugar flowers. Trust me, they'll still add that WOW factor and savings to your pocket.
- Vary the height of your guest table centerpieces. Have lows and highs or clustered centerpieces, but make sure the highs don't impede guest conversation.
- Ask your venue if they provide anything that will enhance your table decor, such as mirrors or votive candles. You might as well use them...you are paying for them.
Until next time...WEDologize!
