The #1 Way to Save on Wedding Flowers

When planning your floral budget, keep in mind all of the different purposes for flowers in your wedding: the bride's bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen, mothers' corsages, fathers' boutonnieres, centerpieces, and ceremony arrangements.

So what is the #1 way to save on flowers without sacrificing the overall vision for your day?


Lessen the number of people in your wedding party (fewer bouquets & boutonnieres to buy) and the number of guests (fewer tables that require a centerpiece). You can still have the beautiful flowers you fell in love with but you'll need less of them.
