Your Wedding Bouquet – You Don’t Have to Spend Hundreds of Dollars.

It’s your wedding day and you’ve always pictured yourself with a stunning bouquet. Then you go shopping and the sticker shock is the only thing that’s stunning. You can have beautiful flowers for you as the bride and for your wedding party without spending a fortune. And you don’t have to be a professional florist to do it.


Keep in mind the season of your wedding. If it’s fall, you can order tulips, but you’ll pay a fortune. If you go with mums, which are in season in the autumn, you’ll pay a lot less.


Stay away from the exotics like tuberoses, gardenias, orchids, or calla lilies incorporated into your bouquet. Stick with more common flowers like carnations, roses, and baby’s breath.


You can carry a single spray of orchids or a single calla lily. One flower of an exotic species makes a dramatic statement and doesn’t cost a fortune.


You can carry a single white rose tied with a satin ribbon and each of bridesmaids can carry a rose to match or contrast with their dress.


If you have to have the traditional flowing bridal bouquet you can cut costs elsewhere by being creative with your table setting flowers.

If we spend lots of money for wedding bouquet, it can make us headache after wedding. Why? We need to think more on how to recover back our wedding ceremony expenses. If there is a good way to cut wedding cost, why not be followed? I'm agree with Dee, for this precious information that can open other people mind in manage properly their wedding ceremony...Thank's Dee...

These are great tips! Although keeping it simple and pretty will ultimately save us hundreds of dollars, most brides (the ones I know anyway) would prefer having a grand and intricate wedding bouquet. But I will tell my aunt who's getting married about these tips anyway.
