You don’t have to tell me that weddings are expensive! There are so many expenses to make a wedding day happen and they add up fast. I know that many brides are sticking to tight budgets and have to prioritize what they want to invest in.
This. gets. hard.
I heard a tip that I loved that I think is worth sharing! Not only can this tip save you lots of money, but it can make a great impact on the way your photos turn out…
If you’re having trouble making decisions on where to cut expenses back and you’re having a hard time figuring out what to do with your florals then I suggest you invest in your bridal bouquet (and bridal party bouquets if you can). Don’t worry about all the other florals (centerpieces, aisle decorations, etc.) as much.
When photographing a wedding we can utilize the bride’s (and bridesmaids) beautiful bouquets in different arrangements and give the illusion that there were florals everywhere. Ummmm…yes please! Of course it would be nice to have florals everywhere, but I understand that for some budgets that is just plain unrealistic.
If you are able to invest in your whole bridal parties florals then you could recycle your bridesmaids bouquets and use them as floral centerpieces at your cocktail hour or around your reception. Get creative with your flowers!
The bridal bouquet can be used to spice up the bridal details, the cocktail hour, the reception, bide and groom portraits, and wedding party portraits! We can make those florals go a long way.
So if you’re in a budget pinch for flowers, I would definitely put more of your floral budget to your bridal bouquet since it will be a focal point (and should be!) for so many pictures.
Past brides, how did you utilized your florals to the max on your wedding day? Have any tips or tricks for brides-to-be?
