When it comes to wedding bouquets, there’s plenty to consider. From centrepieces, bouquets, buttonholes, vases and a host of other presentations. This can make the whole subject slightly daunting.
Will You Hire A Professional?
You’ll need to decide if you’re going to hire a florist or source the flowers yourself. You may save some cash doing it yourself but this could be a big task. As such, you must ensure you’re organised and get support from family.
Do Your Research
There are plenty of websites out there that will list all the various types of flowers on offer to make your beautiful floral displays. Take time to look through your options and think about your colour palette. Do you want red, yellow or blue to be the theme? Start to list all the flowers in your chosen colours and you can build your displays from there. Once you’ve chosen your flowers and colours, it’s time to visit the florist and get some prices. Our advice as always is to have a clear budget and stick to it! It’s easy to get carried away when planning your flowers but keeping to your budget is essential when it comes to saving money.
If you choose a florist, you can sit back and allow them to do the work on the big day. If however, you’ve opted to set things up yourself, there’s a few things you’ll need to think about. Make sure you have appropriate transport to pick the flowers up and take them to the venue. To avoid damaging them, call on someone who has plenty of boot space or a van. You’ll need to have a clear plan of where your flowers will be placed. Another thing you’ll have to think about is whether the displays require vases, bowls etc. You’ll need to ensure that you have plenty of friends and family on hand to help put the displays out. With some clear planning and organising, managing your own floral displays should be relatively simple and enjoyable.
A Great Alternative …
If you really want to save money, think about picking wild flowers for your wedding bouquets? This will require planning to find a good source of naturally growing wild flowers. Wild flowers, if done well, can look amazing and will save you a fortune. Research wild flowers, find out where they grow and start to plan your floral displays. From there, it’s just a case of finding a good natural source and picking until your hearts content.
Remember, choosing your wedding bouquets should be exciting so go ahead and have fun in the process!
