Saving money on wedding flowers isn’t always easy especially when the centerpieces you see on Pinterest and Instagram are extraordinary and high end, because who is going to share boring? There are some cool ways though that you can make your bouquet look awesome and still keep the costs down.
Using flowers that are in season, using mostly filler flowers and only one or two feature flowers and doing smaller bouquets will help. Also re-using the flowers from your ceremony as feature décor elements in the reception will help as well. Bouquets can be re-used as centerpieces, on the gift table, on the cake table and escort card table. Ceremony focal point garlands can be re-used on the head table, the sweet heart table, the buffet table or cake table. The arbor or chuppa can be re-used over the sweet heart or cake tables. Flower walls behind the ceremony can be re-used behind the sweetheart. Of course it does take time to move these items from one location to the other, if the ceremony & reception happen at two different locations and even if they are at the same location. If your décor is very elaborate, it may not be able to be moved in time if you have a short cocktail hour. You will also need to keep staff on hand to move the elements between the two points.
