Trim that Floral Budget
I love flowers. If I could create arrangements everyday all day I would be a happy camper. As a florist, I know they are an expensive item at an event. Flowers and Decor can start anywhere from $3,000 and up. For an event that has a budget of $30,000 that is 10% of the budget. You still need food, the location, entertainment, transportation, clothing, just to name a few.
In this blog, I give you some ideas on how to trim that floral budget.
#1 Green, Green, Green!!!
I love this trend right now. All these bouquets and decorations with a few flowers and more greenery. It call the bohemian look…The less flowers you use the less you will be spending on that budget.
#2 Reuse it
I tell my customers to reuse those flowers. Example take those bouquets and use them in the reception. Put them on the head table or even the guest tables. All you have to do is to tell your bridesmaids to place their bouquets into the vase once they enter the room. Have the vase ready with water.
#3 Light it up
Don’t you just love the glow of candles and in a clean clear or frosted vase. Why not do that. Place candles with a few flowers on the table it’s so romantic. The more candles, the more romantic.
#4 Keep it simple
ou do not need huge arrangements on the table. Besides your guest can’t talk to the people on the other side of the table because of that massive arrangement in the center.
#5 Change it up
Do not do all large/tall centerpieces. Try large/tall, small/short and candle arrangments (remember, we love the glow).
10 tall centerpeices @ $200
Total = $2000
4 tall centerpieces @ $200
3 short centerpieces @ $100
3 candle arrangments @ $50
Total = $1250
