A small and intimate wedding is a great option, especially when working with a tight budget. But that doesn’t mean you have to completely do without flowers or any other special tradition at your wedding. With a bit of planning and these pointers from Rose Hill Weddings, you can have a magical day you’ll remember forever.
- Consider your timing. Having a wedding near a major holiday, like Christmas or Easter, means churches and other venues may already be decorated for the holiday, saving you money on decor. Likewise, choosing flowers that are local and in-season will be much less expensive than having your favorites shipped in from elsewhere.
- Consider your blooms. Budget blooms and filler flowers like baby’s breath, carnations and mums can not only make gorgeous stand-alone bouquets, they can surround more statement blooms like dhalias or roses for a fresh but inexpensive centerpiece.
- Consider your decor. Fancy garlands and pew end-pieces will start to add up quickly, but the decor you use in the ceremony can be repurposed as centerpieces and table decor in the reception. A little planning and forward thinking, as well as a great friend or bridesmaid to make the transition, can make this happen seamlessly and give your entire day continuity.
Your big day does not have to come at big cost. Have an honest discussion with the floral experts at Rose Hill Weddings about your budget and desires and let us use our creative geniuses to make your wedding day a beautiful one.
