Wedding Flower Money Saving Tip Number 1:

Cut out the delivery charge

You can save big if you give the job to a trusted friend, or someone who wants to be involved and help out on the day.  Your bridal bouquets, buttonholes, corsages, floral crowns and function flowers can be expertly packaged so that you can collect them and take them to the bride and venue.

Function room set-up

Assemble your bridal party, get creative and have fun arranging flowers and foliages. Do this the day before, so all you need to do is place the flowers on the table on the wedding day.  Assign the task of setting the tables with your arrangements to a family or friend who wants to contribute to the day.

Wedding Flower Money Saving Tip Number 4:

Be savvy when choosing flowers and foliages

The real secret to saving big is to choose flowers that are in season.  Go for more foliages than flowers.  And choose monotone over multi-tone, which means go all white or all pink flowers.  Select a flower and carry that through from the bouquet, to the ceremony and party. Keeping it simple is the key to cutting the cost of your Wedding Flower budget.
