Budget Blooms: Real ways to stretch your floral budget to the most

Gorgeous flower arrangements are an inevitable part of a picture-perfect wedding. Flowers have the amazing ability to transform and uplift the entire wedding scene, making even a drab location picturesque. However, flowers are expensive and your floral budget can quickly get out-of-hand, unless you plan well.

Fortunately, it is possible to stay within budget and still have fabulous floral décor at your wedding. Here are our insider tips to help you stretch  your floral budget and get great value for the money you invest.

1.Highlight bigger blooms

Larger blooms are not only more dramatic, they cover more space. So, you will need fewer large blooms to complete  floral arrangements, and they will create a strong impact. Discuss with your florist to find out which blooms are in-season at the time of your wedding. Design your floral décor with the largest of these, and there should be significant cuts in overall cost. A larger flower like an orchid may be pricier than roses. However, with the larger size you will need fewer of them to complete the arrangement. Sunflowers, orchids and hydrangeas are other good choices for maximum impact and economical prices.

2.Keep your centerpieces simple

Although your centerpieces are important, it isn’t too difficult to find budget-friendly choices that pack a punch. Expensive exotic flower installations can eat into your budget. However, a similar impact can be achieved with cheaper choices. Focus on the colors in the design. Your florist can suggest economical choices that will tie with your theme. You can also use few exotic flowers and complete the rest of the arrangement with cheaper seasonal fare.

3.Budget-friendly choices work for designs that are seen from far

While your centerpieces will be viewed up-close, other parts of your floral décor won’t receive too much focus. For instance, the flowers on the altar or lining the edges of the aisle or hall will not be scrutinized from too close. Hence, use cheaper flowers in these arrangements to save money. Filler flowers like carnations are saturated with color and hence the best choice for pops of color. However, these are cheaper than roses. Seen from afar, your guests won’t be able to make out the difference. As long as the effect is similar, it won’t matter whether you used carnations or roses in the actual arrangement.

4.Opt for seasonal and local blooms

This is often the cheapest way to get fantastic blooms. Since local flowers are easily available, transportation costs are minimum. Also, since local produce is fresh, it will look amazing. Seasonal blooms are another good way to keep your costs down. If you must have off-season varieties in your floral décor, prepare to spend extra as they have to be shipped from elsewhere. Off-season flowers may not hold up well, in the weather conditions at the time of your wedding. So, avoid the risk and splurge on local and season flowers instead.

5.Don’t splurge on the bridesmaids bouquets

The more bridesmaids you have, the more money you will have to spend on their bouquets. The prices can quickly add up, and its value isn’t really justified. Instead, invest in a spectacular bridal bouquet. Then plan your bridesmaids bouquets as miniature versions that aren’t too costly. Your florist can whip up alternatives that match yours. Once again, focus on the colors and design instead of the actual flowers in the bouquet.

6.Find alternatives to corsages

Corsages are pretty pricey, since there is a lot of effort involved in creating them. Unless you are very particular about having them, find an alternative to serve the purpose. Use single flowers without fillers, and they will cost  less. Your Wedding blog suggests several alternative corsage options from feathers to starfish and even buttons. We think this is a great way to tie it to the theme of your wedding, while deviating from the traditional floral corsage idea with an unexpected twist. Isn’t it a great way to get noticed? Check it out and get inspired.

7.Add extra greenery

Have you ever realized that the greens in your bouquet are rather inexpensive when compared to the blooms? Make the most of this factor, by choosing more greens and adding flowers as accents in your bouquet. Ivory or ferns cost far less, but fill space. They also add beautiful texture to floral bouquets, enhancing its appeal. So, use lush greenery in your bouquet and centerpieces. You will need fewer blooms, but have floral arrangements of noticeable size and impact. So, choose from foliage , herbs and ferns to add a lush effect to your bouquets for much lesser.

8.Add details like ribbons or lace

Simple additions to your flower bouquet, like a ribbon or lace will help it appear larger. It is also a romantic addition that will enhance the appeal of your bouquets. The same applies to centerpieces as well. Satin ribbons add saturated pops of color that will enhance the beauty of your flower arrangements. Lace adds a romantic note. So, these are classy choices that will help you create a better looking flower arrangement sans the cost.

9.Add a unique touch to your décor with non-floral centerpieces

Expensive flower arrangements with exotic blooms are always impressive. Nevertheless, this isn’t the only way to create impact. You can achieve the same effect by adding few cheaper and unusual items. You can find elements that tie to your chosen theme. The best part is that such items can also be reused in your home décor later. Take a look at this article on the Bridal Guide for some interesting suggestions along these lines. From Bird cages for garden weddings and rustic themes to pin wheels for outdoor weddings, there are plenty of amusing ideas to borrow and use. 

10.Choose airy flowers that add bulk to arrangements

Similar to adding foliage to increase the bulk of your floral arrangement, add bunches of light and airy blooms to enhance the volume of the entire arrangement without costing much. Wispy strands of baby breath act as great fillers for bouquets and centerpieces. A single stem will occupy significantly more space than a single flower. Hence, this is one option to explore. Your florist can suggest more such options that are pretty and light and create the effect you desire.

11.Reuse and re-purpose to get the most out of your wedding flowers

In most cases, you will have your wedding ceremony at one location and the wedding reception in another location. Although it may be the same venue, it is likely that your reception hall is different from the one for the wedding ceremony. In such cases, the common practice is to set up separate floral arrangements at either spot. However, the smarter option is to reuse the same flowers at the second location. Arrange to transfer the flowers from the first location to the second, and you will only have to pay the transfer cost. You will have to employ help to do this quickly and discretely after the ceremony. Plan this movement carefully before the wedding day, so it progresses smoothly on the day.

12.Go for non-floral bouquet options

There are many substitutes for real flowers that look just as good, or perhaps even better. Spend less by replacing your bridal bouquet and that of your bridesmaids with non-floral options. From fabric flowers to paper flowers, brooches, lace and even feathers, explore the variety of options available. There are endless options as long as you are flexible. The best part is that you will also have an unforgettable accessory that your guests are bound to remember. So, let your creative juices flow and come up with a non-floral bouquet option that ties to your wedding theme and is unique in every way. For more inspiration and ideas, take a look at this fantastic post on the Martha Stewart website.

13.DIY your wedding bouquets by going for what is cheap and available on the day

If you have time and are crafty, this is the best way to stretch your wedding bouquet budget. Visit the local market the day before your wedding, and find cheap flowers that fit your color scheme. You could even enlist the help of your bridesmaids or friends who are particularly talented in this area. However, remember that this is not an option if you are rather particular about what you want. On the other hand, if you are flexible and ready to go with what is available, this could be the cheapest way to find flowers for your bridal and bridesmaids bouquet at a bargain price. With a little creativity, you can easily find ideas for unique and beautiful bouquets with what is readily available.

14.Add seasonal bounty to the mix

Another idea for a non-floral bouquet is to add seasonal bounty like fruits, foliage and natural décor elements to your centerpieces. When you pair colorful fruits like limes, berries, apples or peaches, you can easily obtain the pop of color you choose. These also add texture and unexpected beauty to an arrangement. The best part is that such seasonal produce is often inexpensive and will bring down your flower budget significantly. Take a look at this post on the Martha Stewart website for some stunning centerpiece arrangements bursting with fruits and even vegetables.

15.Start with the grocery store bouquet

If you must save on your flower budget, look no further than the regular flower bouquets available at grocery stores. These give you the right base to begin your arrangements and designs with. Simply rearrange the blooms, add a few extra embellishments like brooches, twine or lace for a touch of glamour and you are ready to go. Remember however, that this setup requires extra time. So, don’t embark on this route unless you have time and skills to get creative and DIY on the day before your wedding.

16.Mix and match by cost of flowers

Flexibility is key to achieving the desired impact while staying within budget. If you want your floral arrangements to look lush and expensive, mix and match expensive and inexpensive flowers in your arrangements. One way is to go with alternating arrangements of flowers that fit each category. The other option is to use few large blooms of the expensive flower of your choice, and alternate it with inexpensive flowers as the fillers. Flowers like baby’s breath and daisies are perfect for this option.

Weddings are very expensive, and every penny that you save goes towards your future. So, it is wise to consider your options and make budget cuts wherever possible. Even if flowers are a priority in your wedding plans, you can achieve startling results without breaking the bank. The above suggestions should help you with this. Have we missed anything?

13 Top Ideas to make your bridal look unforgettable

Haven’t you ever felt that all brides tend to make similar (and safe) choices for their wedding day?

Even fashion forward and daring women tend to play it safe when its time to plan their wedding day look. After all, your wedding album will record your bridal look for generations to come. Why should you take a risk and look dated in just few years?

The good news is that you can still have a remarkable wedding day look that will be truly memorable, without going overboard. You can also adopt certain trends, without taking them to the extreme. It is in fact rather amazing, how just a little attention to detail can help you grab everyone’s attention.

This is what we shall explore in today’s post. So, check out the different ideas we have compiled, and let us know which of these is your favorite.

1.Choose a dress with stunning back details

Certain dresses are prettier from the back than they are from the front. This simple fact is often enough to set a bride apart and make her bridal look truly memorable. So, let this be the surprise element of your wedding day look. From keyhole backs to illusion details, daring low cut backs and even unusual embellishments in this region, there are many options to explore.

The best thing about this option is that you can even cover it up during the ceremony with your veil, only to reveal this interesting element when you take it off for the reception. Here are some dresses with fabulous back details that will wow your guests.

2.Lavish dose of color in your wedding dress

White is a signature color in wedding gowns. So, a pop of color is rather unexpected and interesting in many ways. Not only is it a great way to tie your look to the color theme of your wedding, this singular factor will also make your look instantly unforgettable. Colorful wedding gowns are always a big hit on the runway. Nevertheless, a fully colored gown entirely deviates from the typical expectation we have for brides.

Instead consider a gown with a vibrant dose of color in specific areas. This could be the bodice, as appliques, a colorful trim in the hemline, as a belt, in embellishments or even in the train. Here are some examples.

3.Pretty cover-up

Cover-ups are always intriguing, as they create an air of mystery and leave the onlooker wondering how the wedding dress underneath is. Whether it is a cape, capelet, jacket, shrug or stole, a pretty cover-up is an interesting addition to the bridal trousseau. It is also a functional accessory, for it will come to your rescue should the evening become chilly.

If you are a winter bride, your options in cover-ups are endless. Try on warm jackets or shrugs or invest in a beautiful pashmina that you can use again after the wedding. If your wedding is in summer or spring, a cover-up is unexpected,  and interested. Pick a lightweight, stylish accessory that will enhance your bridal look in an entirely different way. 

For more ideas on what you can use to stay warm on your wedding day, while looking stylish take a look at this post on Brit and Co.

4.A fascinator

Fascinators are amazing headpieces with signature appeal. They instantly grab attention, and definitely don’t go unnoticed. Make this the highlight of your bridal look, and it will be remarkable. Choose fascinators with floral details, birdcage veil details or pom poms for a vivid look.

The downside of this bridal accessory is that it is loud and very vivid. So, you should keep the rest of your accessories simple to avoid a cluttered look. Either pair it with understated jewelry or make sure your dress is simple if you want to wear more accessories.

5.Oversize accessories

You do not need too many items to enhance your bridal look. Just one or two bold, statement accessories will help you stand out. Don’t hesitate to experiment with one or two oversize accessories that will make a definite statement and help you nail that first impression. Choose from tiaras, sparkly head bands and big brooches. You can also wear statement earrings that are available in a wide variety of designs like chandelier earrings, large hoops or danglers.

Oversize accessories look best when paired with minimalist wedding dresses. This will enhance the impact of the accessory, as it will stand out against the simplicity of the dress. Plain satin finish dresses and soft chiffon dresses with simple dress elements like cap sleeves, high necklines and few embroidery details will allow the accessories to shine.

6.Bright lip color

Whether your wedding is in summer or winter, a bright lip color is all it takes to bring a bright touch to your bridal look. Let this be the highlight of your makeup, and you will look like a diva. Bright crimson and vivid orange shades are bold. When opting for colors as fiery as these, it is important that you keep the rest of your makeup simple. Do not overdo your eyes, or the entire look will be ruined. Also, keep in mind that different shades of red work are suitable for different complexions. So, make sure you choose the right shade that flatters your complexion for best results.

Apart from red, bright lively shades of pink are also suitable for making a bold statement. Consider bubblegum pink or magenta for the impact you desire. For more tips on how to pull of unusual and statement lip colors, I suggest you visit this post on the Bustle. 

7.Switch out the traditional gown for wedding separates

Wedding dress separates are a welcome change from the typical single-piece bridal gown. The best thing about this option is that you can mix and match pieces to create your own style. You can even switch out the typical wedding skirt with something more bold, like a pant suit. Nobody will easily forget the bride who wore pants, that is for sure!

Interesting options include heavily layered tulle skirts with crop tops that show a hint of skin at the waistline. You can even go with an inserted top for the skirt and blouse look of yesteryears. Even vary the length of the skirt to find one that flatters your figure and adds a youthful charm to your overall look.

8.Peep of color beneath the skirt

Pick a petticoat that adds a punch of color as it trims the hemline of your wedding skirt. Otherwise, pick some colored shoes to add a pop of color to your feet. Such doses of color in unexpected places will pep up your look instantly.

This is also a great way to tie your look to the wedding color scheme, without going too far. Your guests are bound to be intrigued by your attention to detail, and find the way you incorporated color into your outfit rather amusing.

9.Wear a flower crown

Flower crowns never lose their charm. So, wear one, especially if your wedding celebrates a natural or vintage theme. It is also the ideal hair accessory if your wedding is on the beach or at a garden. Bigger blooms add more drama. Nonetheless, a bridal flower crown with delicate and wispy flowers are just as charming.

Ensure that you choose the flowers for your crown carefully. Since certain flowers are sturdier than others, it is better to pick such blooms if you will wear the flower crown the entire day. The other option is to wear your flower crown for the ceremony, and replace it with another hair accessory for the reception.

10.Wear boots or sneakers with your wedding dress

Replace your wedding shoes with super-comfortable sneakers and you will not only find it easy to move around, it will also create a unique style. If your wedding dress has a short hemline, choose boots that cover up the exposed part of your legs for a super-stylish look. Remember that you can re-use these boots after the wedding, which makes it a worthwhile investment. For a shorter dress that ends between the knee and ankles, choose knee-length or calf length boots.

Sneakers can be adorable at a casual theme wedding. Pick it in bright, vivid colors that tie to the theme of your wedding for most impact. If you aren’t sure this is right for you, consider getting a pair of heels for the ceremony. Then switch into your sneakers at the reception, and dancing will be so much easier. It will also be an interesting twist to your bridal look, without too much effort.

11.Go barefoot if your wedding is at the beach

Whatever choices you make for your wedding, you should ultimately stay true to your personal style. If the reason you chose a beach venue is your love for the sand and the sea, you will most likely also enjoy the feeling of the sand in your toes. So, don’t hesitate to forego footwear entirely, on your wedding day at the beach.

Instead of a pair of shoes, go barefoot. But don’t forget to dress up your feet with pretty accessories that will make it look attractive. Wear an anklet or toe rings to add a touch of bling to your feet. Or dress it up with glittery tattoos or jewelry with sparkling elements to enhance the beauty.

12.Replace your bouquet with something different

The bouquet is an important bridal accessory. However, it is also totally expected. So, if you must add an unusual twist to your wedding day look, replace the bridal bouquet with something unique. Consider replacing the fresh flowers bouquet with a faux flower bouquet. You can make this from felt flowers, silk flowers or even paper flowers.

If this doesn’t satisfy your fancy for the unusual, go with even bolder choices. How about replacing the bouquet entirely with a lantern or feathers? There are many more such ideas for the offbeat bride on this article at the Rock n Roll Bride. So, don’t forget to take a look.

13.Wear a quirky hair accessory

Forget the veil, forget the headband and all other traditional hair accessories. Let your choice add a quirky touch to your wedding day look, when you pick a colorful and fun accessory that stands out.

Go for a fun, feathered piece with colorful accents that add a unique twist to your look. Or you could even replace the hair piece with a cute hat. Now, that is a look that your guests wouldn’t expect in the least. So, it is sure to go down in their memories.

Your wedding day is special, and it deserves to be one-of-a-kind. So, don’t hesitate to explore all the possible options. For it is always better to know than wonder “what-if” in the years to come.

Think beyond the bouquet—12 floral details for a fantastic flower theme wedding

Flowers are an essential part of most weddings. Whether flowers form the main theme or appear in a supporting role, they are a valuable addition to a wedding theme. These pretty little trinkets of nature have astounding beauty and versatility, and this factor makes them immensely appealing.

The bouquet is a statement piece in every bride’s ensemble. However, few brides think beyond these floral beauties and include floral details to enhance color and visual interest at their weddings. Nonetheless, we just love weddings that include floral elements, where these natural details appear in interesting and unexpected places. Not only are they pretty to look at, they instantly add a cheerful and buoyant note to the scenery. Here are some ideas for inspiration. Take a look and we are sure you will want to embrace a few (if not all!) to add more floral fun to your wedding day.

Fun floral invitations

Invitations are a great way to let everyone know that you fancy flowers. Floral details on an invitation are always classic. Few colors can uplift spirits and create a dreamy invitation. And the options are endless. There are hundreds of flexible options that allow you to customize your invitation to the last detail. If you plan to DIY your wedding invites, florals are an amazing concept for innovative and impressive ideas. You can choose to go with watercolor images, photographs or even floral silhouettes to embellish wedding invitations.

If you don’t want to do florals all the way and prefer subtle details, simply line the inside of your envelopes with floral prints. This detail will not go unnoticed, even while it will not compete with the main theme you choose. Take a look at this post on the Creative Market website for some brilliant ideas for DIY floral invitations. 

Flowery flower girl dress

Choose a stunning flower-detailed dress for your little flower girl, and she will literally own her title! Little girls always love flowers, and we are sure your flower girl will be no different. There are several options to consider. You can choose a dress with flower prints that match the colors at your wedding. Another option is to choose a floral lace dress that is elegant and classic. Finally, you can go all out by choosing a dress embellished with 3-dimensional flowers like roses. You can always find dresses that match the colors of your wedding scene, with any of these options. We are sure your flower girl will love your choice, no matter which of these three you finally decide upon.

Floral crown

Let a floral crown be your hair accessory, and it will speak loudly of your love for flowers. Also, nothing else screams summer, like fresh and fragrant flowers on a bride. Delicate flower buds and dainty daisies can be woven together to form a splendid accessory for formal themes. If your wedding is outdoors or less formal in style, consider wearing an oversize flower crown made from a rich selection of flowers to make a statement. If you do not desire such a dramatic look, there is always the option of weaving few flowers into your hair. Flowers can be used as natural embellishments for braided hairstyles.

Fragrant flowers like jasmines and rosebuds are beautiful and deliver a rich scent. You can also go for larger flowers like lilies or even local flora and fauna in your hairstyle to look the part. When choosing delicate flowers, remember that they are likely to wilt quickly. Either switch them out before they wear out or try to get hold of artificial flowers for the same effect. There are plenty of beautiful ideas on how to wear flowers in your hair in this post on the Bridal Guide. Check it out. 

Floral print wedding dress

Let your love for flowers free by choosing a wedding dress strewn with floral details. Floral lace is very popular among brides, with 3-dimensional motifs and appliques playing flower details to perfection. However, we suggest that you take it a step further.

Choose a wedding dress with ample floral work to highlight your theme. Watercolor prints, colorful appliques, or self-print fabrics can render a beautiful effect. Not only will you have a unique gown, but it will also be one that will forever remain etched in the memories of your onlookers. However, keep in mind that you may not easily come across bridal gowns with floral prints. With limited ready-made options, you may have to either go with what is available or custom-create your own dress. The other option is to shop in another dress aisles, like evening dresses or dresses for special occasions to find a suitable one.

This beauty features cheerful pink roses on white fabric. A pretty pink sash compliments the beautiful roses. Although the dress features floral prints, it fits the wedding dress expectation with its voluminous skirt and statement style elements.

Flower bag

Every bride needs an emergency kit for her wedding day. How about you pack all the essentials into a bag with flower-details? This will tie it to the theme, and will also be a beautiful addition to your ensemble. Choose a bag with floral details that match or complement the texture of your wedding dress. You can also find one that goes well with the rest of your theme colors.

Make sure the bag you choose has a reasonable size, so it can comfortably house all that you need to carry. This would be things like your hair and makeup essentials, tissues, smelling salts, handkerchief. These items will help you touch up your hair and makeup to stay fresh during the course of the day. It should also have emergency supplies to tackle any unexpected accidents. For more details on what to pack into your emergency kit, take a look at this previous post.

Floral bridesmaid dresses

If you think a floral bridal gown is too much, dress your bridesmaids in floral prints instead. Florals being a popular summer theme, it will be rather easy to find bridesmaid dresses that fit the description. Either mix and match or choose the same dress to achieve the desired effect. However, remember that it is easy to get carried away when you choose printed dresses for your bridesmaids. So, have at least two constant dress elements that will keep the look cohesive. Simple silhouettes usually look the best, when you want the prints to be noticed. We also suggest keeping the rest of the accessories simple and monochromatic, so the emphasis is on the print on the dresses.

Desserts with floral details

Sugar flowers are always a pleasant sight, and hence the perfect choice for decorating wedding desserts. Whether used all over the wedding cake or scattered around the perimeter, floral cakes are always welcoming. Fresh edible flowers are another interesting option that adds more visual interest to your dessert arrangement. Take a look at this previous post to find out how to decorate your wedding cake with flowers for a splendid effect. Finally, you can even consider cupcake cases adorned with flower details for the intended impact. These could be served at the table or set aside as favors for your guests to take home.

Choose subtle and natural colors to create a refreshing and natural arrangement. Simple but uncluttered details look best on desserts that match a floral theme. Take a look at the above image, for instance. The flawlessly sculpted cake is embellished with just gold foil and purple blooms. Despite the simplicity of the details, it looks spectacular.

Petal confetti

One of the timeless wedding traditions that continue to this day is to shower the newlyweds with confetti. Let petals replace paper confetti at your wedding. Pack them into delicate cones and hand it out to your guests to shower on you. This is the most romantic option available, and it is easy to arrange. Freeze-dried petals are available for the purpose. These look fresh and being bio-degradable, are a green choice for the festivities. So, whether these are showered on you while you are outdoors or inside the wedding hall, you needn’t worry about cleaning up. Further, it doesn’t stain when in contact with your white wedding gown. You can also use the same to scatter on your wedding tables and even along the aisle for a colorful and interesting effect.

Flower runner

Here is an interesting way to spice up your wedding tables with unexpected décor. While your guests will be expecting to see flowers as part of the décor and in the centerpieces, they aren’t likely to expect the entire table runner to have flowers. Pack flowers throughout the runner of a long table and the effect will be stunning. Use a neutral color tablecloth, so all the attention is focused on the colors of the flowers on it. Also keep the rest of the details simple, so there are no distractions and the flowers form the main focus of your tablescapes.

Flower garnishes for drinks

Add colorful, fresh edible flowers as accents to signature cocktails that will be served at your wedding. This detail is rather simple, but will certainly not go unnoticed. Your guests will in fact appreciate your attention to detail. Make sure that the flower color compliments or contrasts with the color of the beverage that is served. You can pair it with other elements in the garnish, such as berries to complete the effect. While choosing the garnish, ensure that the flowers are fresh. Keep the design simple, to just convey the theme without going overboard. Oversize blooms can also be placed in mason jars for a colorful touch.

Flower carpet

Arrange flowers or petals to form an attractive flower carpet that will steal everyone’s eye. Choose colors and designs that tie to the theme of your wedding, and set up the flower carpet at a location that will be easily visible. Although it can take a while to complete the details, the impact is worth it. Another benefit of this idea is that you can make the flower carpet as big or as small as you choose. It needn’t be formed of fresh flowers either. You can even add leftover petals from the rest of your décor or faux flowers to create an intricate design that is bound to impress.

Flower swing

An unusual, but very impressive way to incorporate flowers into your wedding day scene is with a flower swing. It is also a wonderful photo prop, that can be the focus of many beautiful wedding photos. Find a well-lit, noticeable spot at your wedding venue and arrange to have a swing decorated with flower arrangements up. After the couple has their turn, it can be enjoyed by the rest of the guests and we are sure it will be a lot of fun for everyone. If it isn’t practical to have a hanging swing at your venue, we think this idea of the circular swing on the Hallmark channel website is the perfect alternative.

We hope these ideas inspire you to add plenty of flower power to your big day. Do you have any more ideas, that we missed? If yes, we would love to hear them in the comments below.
