3 Tips for Getting Wedding Flower Arrangements on a Budget, Port Jervis, New York

From the bridal bouquet to the table centerpieces, flowers are an important element of a wedding. That doesn't necessarily mean you have to spend a fortune on them, though. If you’re on a tight budget, here are a few savvy tips for getting bouquets and flower arrangements that are as affordable as they are breathtaking. 

3 Budget-Friendly Tips for Wedding Flowers 

1. Buy in Bulk 

If you have a creative eye, purchasing the flowers in bulk and making the arrangements yourself—or with the help of your wedding party—could save a considerable bit of money. For even more savings, opt for flowers with lots of volume, so you can order fewer blooms. Examples include hydrangeas, freesias, alstroemerias, and gladioluses. 

2. Choose Local Blooms in Season

If your wedding will be during one of the cooler or dryer months, look for a florist that has a greenhouse on-site. They’ll be able to supply a broad range of local flowers no matter the season. 

3. Complement With Filler 

Greenery and filler flowers can elevate any bouquet without increasing the price. Some of the most popular green accents include myrtle, ivy, leather fern, silver dollar eucalyptus, and dusty miller. As for filler flowers, your florist might recommend sea lavender, snapdragons, poms, or baby's breath.

Don't forget the twine, burlap, velvet strip, or satin ribbon to hold it all together. No flower arrangement is complete without such accents.
