Budgets can be hard to begin and stick to, and when it comes to weddings and events, that couldn’t be more true. Oleta spoke with Wallet Joy this month on a few tips regarding your floral budget as you plan your wedding.
As you figure out how to save money on wedding flowers, start by researching the varieties that will be in season on your wedding date, according to Oleta Collins, you’ll save a pretty penny by choosing blooms that don’t have to be imported. And, of course, reusing your flowers is always a smart idea.
“Floral walls, circular arches, and arbors are not only an excellent ceremony backdrop; they are also beautiful behind a sweetheart or bar table,” Collins says. “This is best used in a venue where you have everything in one place, and transportation to and from another site would be difficult.”
For decor, she recommends asking your venue about what it already has on hand and the cost to rent. Renting directly from your venue could be less expensive than buying new decorations or using a separate rental company. Also, make sure to focus on what guests will actually see rather than nitpicking every detail.
“You don’t need everything, so focus on the more essential items that will make a big difference in the look and comfort of your guests,” Collins says.
