Wedding flowers are one of those things that can make or break your wedding. They make any space look amazing but can cost an arm and a leg to do so! So what do you do? Go on the hunt for cheap wedding flowers. Let me show you.
Top 5 Ways to Get Cheap Wedding Flowers (And Your Guests Will Never Know!)
Flowers make a wedding beautiful, but they also break a budget. If you're looking at flowers for your wedding but you're afraid of going over budget, you have options so don't panic.
Now for my tips, 5 tips to find cheap wedding flowers are you ready?
Be Mindful of the TYPE of Flowers Your Choose
Generally, the more popular wedding flowers are going to cost you more money. Make sure you shop around as well don't take the quote from one place a hard price. Check out these 16 inexpensive wedding flowers to consider.
Shop for Flowers Online
Shops like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, are great places to find inexpensive wedding flowers. From those who make amazing arrangements to those selling pre-used wedding flowers, you can find great deals online. You can find real and fake flower arrangements (don't rule out fake flowers!) When buying from Amazon you can use my tricks to earn free Amazon gift cards and get them for free!
Pick Your Own Flowers
This could be a little tricky because you will need to pick and arrange your flowers the day before your wedding, so they look awesome. You will want to get friends and family to help you with this. You can use wildflowers or pick flowers from your friends and family gardens. Make it even more special by making a centerpiece and making a nameplate saying picked from so-and-so garden. They will feel extra special, and it will be a great talking point!
Smaller is Better
A decorative jar with one or two colorful flowers can have a bigger impact than the whole bunch of flowers. A small set up for centerpiece like the one shown above is just as beautiful and people can still see each other across the table instead of trying to see around a bigger flower arrangement.
Keep Your Venue In Mind
Pick a venue that is outside and has flowers there already do it's less you have to decorate with. Some have generic arrangements for tables, maybe you look into an outdoor wedding at a garden, or a garden party reception.
There are many ways to save money on your wedding flowers! Here are a few bonus tips!
- Get flowers cheap and making bouquets and arrangements yourself (or with family)
- Don't write off using fake flowers!
