5 Ways to Save Money on Wedding Flowers

1. Buy flowers in season.

Love peonies? They’ll cost way more in August than June when they’re in full bloom. If you order flowers in season, you’ll spend less than special orders for flowers flown in from elsewhere.

2. Utilize non-floral options in your decor.

Save money on wedding flowers by using them sparingly. As an example, non-floral centerpieces like candles or lanterns can be used or combined with small vases of wildflowers (or potted succulents). No one will notice a lack of flowers and you’ll spend less.

3. Choose larger blooms.

Fuller flowers like dahlias, hydrangeas, or peonies will give you more bloom for your buck. You can use less blooms and still make a big impact.

4. Go handmade!

Handmade isn’t always less expensive than traditional flowers, but they boast one major advantage. Handmade wedding flowers last forever! This means a handmade wedding bouquet — and the money you spent on it — isn’t thrown away at the end of the night. Instead, it becomes home decor to enjoy for years to come.
