Spring (Flowers) are in the Air!

The first tip to saving on your flowers is to go with what is in season!  Lucky for all you Spring/Summer brides there is SO many beautiful flowers in season!  The second tip I have is to go BIG.  While I love a simple arrangement of bud roses, they can be costly.  However, an arrangement of 1 or 2 large blooming flowers can be just as elegant and a lot more bang for your buck!

 

One of my favorites that fits this bill are hydrangeas.   Image

Peonies are also another lovely spring big blooming flower!

If your looking at a VERY tight budget.  You can’t go wrong with a simple arrangement of Baby’s Breath!  This poor flower has been treated like the ugly step-child for far too long and is finally getting some love!  No longer just a “filler” flower, you can make a breath taking arrangement for very little.

Just remember, while less can often be more….BIG can also be better 😉

Get The Most Bloom for Your Buck

When it comes to flowers you can quickly start talking about over $100 for just one bouquet or centerpiece.  This is where you really need to start thinking about how much you want to spend on flowers.  Do you really have to have roses everywhere?  Or could a few mixed in with other less expensive flowers be OK?  Do you have to have real flowers?  Or could very real looking silk flowers do?  Are you willing to pull up your sleeves and do a little work or get really creative?

One frugal tip here is to go BIG.  And I don’t mean a large amount of stems.  One way to maximize your budget is to use larger blooming flowers.  Such as sunflowers, hydrangeas, and peonies.  You can easily use just a few stems of these flowers and have a very full looking centerpiece or bouquet.
