How To Find Cheap Wedding Flowers

Cheap Wedding flowers are relatively straight forward to achieve, if you know what to look for.

You can achieve the look you want with inexpensive flowers with just a few smart choices.

Many flowers are imported and therefore available all year round. However, transport and greenhouse costs bump up the price of these flowers, so they tend to be cheaper and better quality when in their ‘natural’ season.

Spring brides also will need to be aware that the price of flowers will peak around Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

If you’re leaving your cheap wedding flowers to the professionals, there are a few things to bear in mind. Shop around for a competitively priced florist. Be up-front and tell the florist how much you’re willing to spend and ask them NOT to show you anything above your budget.

That way you won’t be tempted to blow the budget. If you don’t have a clear idea of the flowers you want, by telling the florist your colour scheme and what flowers you DON’T like, they can work within your budget to find suitable flowers for you.

Remember to keep it simple – a few larger wedding flower arrangements will have a greater impact than lots of smaller ones.

Also, consider using fewer expensive flowers and bulking these out with less expensive ones and striking foliage. For those wedding flower arrangements which are only seen from a distance (e.g. on an altar), consider cheaper big blooms e.g. chrysanthemums.

If logistics permit, consider bringing the flowers used to decorate the ceremony venue to the reception. This can be more hassle than it’s worth however, as it may hold up guests being granted access to the reception.

For those of you having a church ceremony, see also ‘Decorations’ , where I talk about timing your wedding to coincide with an event at the church, so you can benefit from existing flower arrangements. If your reception venue provides candelabras for the tables, these require little, if any, decoration.

So you see, cheap wedding flowers are possible – it just takes a little know-how!
