Our bridesmaids will be carrying champagne hydrangeas. For my bouquet and six bridesmaid bouquets to be done using real flowers through a florist we would be looking at over $300 for teeny tiny bouquets. The cost of us making our own (including a toss bouquet and cake table decorations) was $70. I’ve learned that there are so many hidden costs when planning a wedding that trying to come in under budget will usually end up putting you pretty close to your budget. Despite keeping costs down as much as possible Josh and I are still over our initial wedding budget. Hopefully we can find some more creative ways to save money to help keep our numbers down.
Figure out what your budget is, what kind of flowers you want, and how many flowers you’ll need; then do some research. If your local grocery store is stocked with awesome quality blooms for a great price, then go that route. And if an online wholesaler is your best bet, click away! Just figure out what’s best for you and what you feel most comfortable with.
The Arabian Star flower or Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum arabicum, adds white punctuation points to this tinted blue hydrangea bouquet. Although there are hydrangea varieties that are naturally blue, they have a very saturated sky blue color that would not work in this pastel bouquet. Using floral tints allows the designer to inject a soft cloud blue into the bouquet that wouldn’t overwhelm the arrangement.
A bride-to-be that chooses red roses for her wedding celebration flowers is sending out a message of interest as well as of intense love. If dark pink roses are used for a wedding event, the pair is expressing a gratitude that they found each various other.
As you can see, the blossoms that you pick for your wedding will definitely establish the state of mind. Recognizing that, before you select your flowers, establish what kind of wedding and reception event you wish to have. Choosing the blossoms will certainly be a breeze when you do that!
Sissies - Sissies are lots of people's preferred blossom, yet not a whole lot of brides use them in their wedding celebration design. They could if they understood their relevance!
Floral arrangements are one of the best ways to bring your wedding color palette to life, so it's important to know what hues you want before meeting with your florist. Leading with a specific hue means it's easier to identify which flower options you have, then you can narrow down the best stems by season. For example, hydrangea grows in range of beautiful blue shades but it usually blooms from late spring through the summer, meaning the cost per stem might cost more for a winter wedding.
That's right; a lot of flowers bring a significance, or an unique value that has been given from generation to generation.
The ideal wedding celebration flower designers generally do lots of wedding events. Call or go to a few of the finest floral designers.

As I’ve mentioned on here before Josh and I are planning this wedding on a seriously small budget. We’re both still in school and while we will be graduated by the time we get married neither one of us will have started our careers and we do not want to start out our lives together by going into debt for a wedding. That said, we still want a beautiful, fantastic day. I don’t think that a wedding has to cost a lot of money to look amazing. If you’re willing to take on some of the tasks yourself you can really save money. After getting quotes for flowers from local florists and realizing that my dream peony bouquet was not only not feasible but not possible in July, Josh and I decided to make our own flowers and use silk ones so that we wouldn’t have to worry about them being fragile or potentially dying before the ceremony.
