Go for flowers that are in season.
Don’t be all set with a certain type of flower or with a certain type of setting that you would like to get for the wedding day. For example, peonies are almost never in season. They are almost always imported from somewhere else and this is why they can cost triple or even quadruple the cost of roses in general. Knowing this ahead of time will save you from so much pain and even financial burdens further down the road and this is something that you ought to go ahead and take into account as much as you possibly can. You can go ahead and do a little bit of research about this especially when you have the time. On the other hand, you can also try to just go ahead and talk to your florist about this while you are at it. If you don’t, you might end up with fewer blooms that are overpriced because they had to be ordered off from somewhere and most of the amount that you will be paying for will turn out to be labor and shipment fees which might cost so much more than the actual flowers alone. When you go for flowers that are in season during the time of the wedding, you get them in volume for a very minimal cost and this can turn out to make all of the difference in the world when it all comes down to it.
Go for wild wedding flowers. They are relatively for free. Most people or brides in general are quick to frown upon the thought of checking out wild flowers for the wedding but the truth of the matter is that wild wedding flowers can turn out to save you a whole lot of money at the end of the day. Wild flowers can be colourful and interesting and altogether full of substance and whimsy at the same time. If you are lucky or if you are nearby any open spaces, you get to actually play around with the possibility of picking out your own wedding flowers and getting them for free if they happen to be wild wedding flowers. They are for free and they are fairly natural so try to see if this is something that you can look into when it all comes down to it.
Pick a florist who is flexible with the rates.
There are a lot of florists out there in your local area but when you are picking yours out, what you need to go ahead and make sure of as much as possible is that your florist is someone who specializes in wedding setups in the first place. Look into what they have done in the past and try to see if this is something you can use for when you are picking someone out from a crowd of florists. Determine a budget and try to stick to that no matter what happens.
Go for more greens and larger blooms.
They look just as nice without costing you as much. A great florist can work this out for you. Plus, green can be really refreshing on the eyes and this is what you can leverage on for your wedding flowers.
