A quick tip for brides on a budget who like the tall glamorous floral look for their reception. A great way to achieve the look without breaking the bank is to alternate the tall floral pieces with some shorter centerpieces. Hydrangeas are available year round in variations of colors and a great way to bring volume and elegance to any arrangement.

Don’t Be Picky

You may have to compromise with your floral decorations if you are on a tight budget; this is especially true with your flowers choices. Be open to several different types when it is time for you to choose. If you decide to buy your flowers from a local florist, tell the florist your budget and see what types of flowers they propose. Be open to the suggestions.

Just like with your wedding food, using flowers that are in-season can save money. For example, tulips are beautiful, but they are winter/early spring flowers. If you can find them during their off-season, the price could be as much as -5- times the cost during their “in-season”.
