The flowers for your wedding can be a big part of the ceremony and the reception. How do you get the flowers that you want without breaking your wedding budget? Here, you'll find a few tips that can help you cut the cost of the flowers for your ceremony and reception.
Mix Silk With Real
Silk flowers are simply beautiful these days, but they still aren't quite as good as the real flowers that you may have pictured all of these years. Instead of opting for just silk or just real, settle for a combination of both.
You see, you can use the silk flowers for decorating the aisle, and the hall, but you can use real flowers for the bouquets and boutonnieres. The flowers that will be part of the close-up pictures should be the most beautiful in the ceremony; after all, those are the pictures that will be displayed in your home and protected in an album.
Store Silk Flower Arrangements
One great think about silk flower arrangements is that you can make them months before the wedding date and still have them looking perfect for the big day.
If you're doing your own silk flower arrangements, you can make them here and there and place them in a climate-controlled area until the big day. If you don't have a place around the house to store them without worrying about cold, heat, or moisture-causing damage, then you'll have to lease a small storage unit in a climate-controlled facility. This storage unit will become invaluable by the time the wedding day arrives – you'll use it to store more wedding stuff than you'd ever think possible.
Gifting or Resell
You'll have the option to either gift the arrangements to those who attend your wedding, or you can resell them to recoup some of the cost. You've spent time and money creating these arrangements, so it's up to you – do you want to spare another bride the work of making her own, or do you want to give your guests something special to go home with at the end of the night?
Work with a floral designer to find a good balance of silk and natural flowers. He or she will be able to pick and choose what will work best for you while protecting the budget that you have set for the biggest and greatest day of your life.
