Wedding Planning Tips

Alternatives for the Wedding Bouquet

A wedding bouquet is the center piece to a woman’s look when she walks down the aisle. It’s the accent piece that draws in the eyes to the bride. Wedding bouquets can vary in size in style. Most are floral designs which some chose only a few flowers to hold, while others choose a large bouquet with many different colors and flowers. Some people even get bouquets for their bridesmaids to hold. These wedding bouquets can get quite expensive. Between the type of flower and the size of the bouquet you could spend upwards of five to six hundred dollars, but there are ways alternatives to a floral bouquet that will bring down the cost and look just as beautiful.

One option is to only carry a single stem, instead of a bouquet. If you are using flowers in your décor, you can use of the same flowers you already paid for, or you can get one that is one of the accent colors. Something else you can do is to create your own wedding bouquet. You can buy the type of flowers and ribbon you like and you or one of your bridesmaids can arrange and decorate the flowers as you desire. By doing this you will say cost on the actual flower and the labor for your florist. Another option is to buy silk flowers. You can get these at your local design store, and you don’t have to worry about them breaking apart when it is time to throw the bouquet.

You want your wedding to be as beautiful as possible. Just know you don’t have to break the bank to have the look you want.
