3

For those who have an unlimited budget when it comes to planning their wedding, expensive flowers are more than likely one of the top things that they are considering. If flowers are the area that you are most likely to splurge on, you may be interested to learn more about these specific flowers. If you are trying to save money on your wedding flowers, be sure to steer clear of these options.

Casa Blanca Lily

This is considered to be the most expensive flower for weddings. Unfortunately, they are also some of the most beautiful options as well. If this is your favorite flower and you are planning to include it with your décor, be prepared to spend a pretty penny on it. However, you can save some money by only using it sparingly and including other flowers in the arrangement as well. Red roses pair very beautifully with this flower and are a very popular addition to a Casa Blanca Lily wedding.

Gardenia

Not only are gardenias beautiful, they also have a fantastic aroma that comes along with them. Since they are very expensive, you may want to choose a different flower for your wedding, however. One option to think about is going with a different type of flower and wearing gardenia perfume instead.

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas are also a beautiful option and are extremely popular. One of the best things about them is that there is a huge variety in color options that you can choose from. However, since they are so expensive, an alternative might be necessary. One fun idea is to go with Snapdragons instead. Not only do they have a similar look as what hydrangeas offer, but they also have a good variety when it comes to different colors as well.

Lily of the Valley

The flowers are beautiful and there is not really an option that can replace their unique look. They also have a fantastic scent to enjoy as well. If you are determined to have them in your wedding, you may need to look for some silk options rather than real in order to save your budget.

Orchid

These delicate flowers offer a beautiful look for any wedding. They also come in a variety of colors and are stunning to look at. With expenses running high for brides who choose this flower, you may need to find some other areas in your wedding to save money on. This can help you to pay for this lovely flower so that you can still have them in your wedding.

Conclusion

There is an endless amount of flowers to choose from for your wedding. Even if you cannot include these beautiful and expensive options in your wedding, you will still be able to have a beautiful wedding. Just remember, keep your eyes open for discounts and be open to making a few changes here and there in order to keep your budget intact.

The Best 5 Tips For Your Bouquet

Your wedding bouquet is a fundamental part to your special day. There is more than likely no other day in your lifetime which will see you holding a carefully constructed and tailor made bunch of flowers. Some weddings have even been known to have been designed entirely around a bunch of flowers.

Nevertheless and unfortunately, we are not all born with flower knowledge, so brides to be can often be confronted by countless choices, styles and colors, that really does not make the situation any easier. If you think Wang Peonies is a rude word, you have some learning to do! Oh and it is a flower, you awful minded thing.

Select your wedding dress, and then your bouquet.

There will come a point in your planning schedule that you will need to meet up with your florist for a consultation. At this point it is a great idea to bring along a picture of your wedding dress. Your florist can tailor your bouquet design to compliment your dress and to ensure that the flowers don’t ‘drown you’. A perfect bouquet should stand out without dwarfing the bride under countless amounts of plant life while allowing the silhouette of the dress to be seen easily.

It’s not only the shape and size of your dress that matters.

If your wedding dress includes fine detailing on the skirt, avoid trailing bouquets like the plague. You don’t want to be creating a lot of fuss around the bottom of your dress, but if your dress has a long train or large bustle in the back you may want to balance your look with a dramatic bouquet. Avoid hiding your beautiful waistline as this will be your narrowest part, make sure that your bouquet is far narrower than your waist to avoid looking frumpy and wider than you are.

Different flowers are available in different seasons.

You may have your mind set on the perfect flowers for your bouquet but sadly some flowers just aren’t available at certain times of the year. And if they are, they are incredibly expensive. So keep the seasons in mind when choosing your flowers.

How to hold your bouquet.

How hard can holding flowers be? Well, nervous brides can instantly find such a simple task incredibly difficult when placed under pressure. Many brides make the mistake of carrying their beautiful bouquet far too high with both hands, which results in raised or hunch shoulders. You do not need us to tell you that this is not a good look.

Have your bridesmaids on ‘bouquet-watch’, let them remind you to lower your bouquet below your hip and away from your dress if they see you rising your flowers up. Your bouquet can be a great way to hold your posture, which means you will look just amazing in photographs too.

Keep your bouquet fresh.

If you have chosen to have a hand tied bouquet, you may be able to refresh its appearance in the evening for your celebration party. Simply cut off between an inch to two inches of stem and drop them into some water for awhile. They will look like new, just in time for your evening celebrations.
