As you are planning your wedding day, you are going to find it quite difficult to stay within your budget. This is especially true when it comes to your floral arrangements. After all, you are going to want your wedding and reception area to look absolutely stunning. And your first thought to get those places looking that way is adding as many flowers as you can. But that poses the question, “When to draw the line with wedding flower arrangements?”. So, when are wedding flower arrangements too much??
When to Draw the Line with Wedding Flower Arrangements
Okay, so for your wedding, you are most likely going to want flowers for the following:
- Your bridal bouquet
- Your bridesmaids’ bouquets
- Flower girl bouquet
- Boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen, and ring bearer
- Flowers along the aisle
- Flowers at the tables at the reception
- Flowers around the area you say your vows
Can you see how it can be super easy to overbuy when it comes to wedding flower arrangements??
One of the first ways you can draw the line when it comes to wedding flower arrangements is to cut out any flowers that are not necessary. Do you really need the flowers along the aisle for your ceremony?
Next, you can pare down the floral arrangements you do have. After all, do you really need massive floral arrangements on every table at your reception? Can you make do with smaller arrangements or even a simple flower stem or two?
Another option you have when it comes to realizing you are about to blow the flower portion of your wedding budget is to change the types of flowers you have for your wedding. If you have always wanted roses, but you have your wedding planned around Valentine’s Day, you know roses are going to cost a small fortune. This would be the time to choose a new favorite flower for your wedding day! Tulips and carnations are almost as nice, and they cost much less all year long.
It can be difficult to know when to draw the line when it comes to floral arrangements for your wedding. One of the first things you must ask yourself when planning your wedding budget is how important the flowers are to you. If you could care less about the flowers, then stick to the bare minimum.
If you happen to want your flowers to look nice, without breaking the bank, consider using your favorite flowers but in smaller quantities. A simple bouquet or a single flower stem on each table can look just as nice without the higher cost.
