How to Maximise Your Budget for Wedding Flowers

1. Choose Seasonal Blooms

Every season has its own beautiful blooms that you can choose for your wedding.

For example, sunflowers, aster, and Muscari bring brightness to summer.

If you're having a spring wedding, you may want to consider Paphiopedilum Orchids, forget-me-nots, and ranunculus.

In autumn, spiraea, freesias, and Calla Lillies are in season.

For winter celebrations you'll have the choice of flowers such as anemones, delphiniums, and lilac.

This is only a small selection of the stunning blooms that become available throughout the year.

So, you'll never be short of an impressive selection to add style and sophistication to your wedding day.

The main reason why choosing seasonal flowers optimises your wedding flowers budget is that they are usually grown and sourced locally so they are generally fresher and in better condition than imported blooms.

This means they create a colourful and impressive display.

And, they last longer than many flowers that are imported.

We love visiting our local flower market to source fresh blooms for our bespoke creations.

Choosing seasonal flowers is also a sustainable option.

When blooms are sourced locally you reduce the carbon footprint for your wedding because there's very little transportation involved.

So, you get to feel good about helping the planet and you have luxury floral decor that you and your guests will always remember.

Plus, eco-conscious wedding planning is hot right now, and making this choice will help you on your planning journey.

2. Make a Statement

If you're aiming to get the most impact from your wedding flowers budget, opting for a statement installation is a great way to do it.

They capture the attention and imagination of all those attending.

And they can be used in any area of your venue where they're the best fit.

They're a stunning way of welcoming your guests with a staircase adornment.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
We also love integrating flower arches into celebrations.

They're a showstopping addition and they're often used as an alternative to an altar.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
As part of our luxury wedding flower design services, we meet couples in situ at their venue at the start of the process.

So, we can help you see how statement floral structures are a good investment choice when you're spending your wedding flowers budget.

3. Work With a Florist You Trust

Working with an experienced and reputable florist is essential when you're spending your wedding flowers budget.

You learn where you should spend money and how your floral vision can be realised.

4. Adopt a Multi-Purpose Approach

If you're investing your wedding flowers budget in luxury floral installations, you want them to adorn your celebrations as creatively and impactfully as possible.

Adopting a multi-purpose approach allows you to do this.

It enables you to move flowers between locations and use them in a variety of ways.

This makes the best use of the blooms you've invested in and also promotes continuity across your wedding landscape.

As an example, once your ceremony is complete, it's possible to utilise flowers used to decorate the aisle or rows of seats as a feature of your reception tablescapes.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
Larger installations can also be transported between ceremony and reception locations.

This enhances the flow of the occasion and the WOW factor they create is longer lasting.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
We'll discuss any multi-purpose installations you would like with you.

And, we'll be there on the day to make sure everything is in place as it should be.

So, you get the maximum impact from your wedding flowers budget.

5. Invest in a Stunning Bouquet

Your bouquet is a floral high point of your wedding day.

All eyes are drawn to it and to your stunning dress and accessories that it complements.

It follows that this is where a significant slice of your wedding flowers budget will be spent and you want to take people's breath away with the results of your investment.

Don't forget that your bouquet is going to be a star of the entire day whether that's in your hands as you walk down the aisle, as decor on the top table after the ceremony, or during the much-anticipated bouquet toss.

So, planning your wedding flowers budget with it as a central focus makes sense.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
Larger blooms like roses, Calla Lillies, and peonies look stunning in a bouquet to accompany a romantic ballgown.

Dainty flowers like Lily-of-the-Valley and sweet peas are perfect additions to fun hand-tied posies that complement shorter dress styles.

And, we love playing with shades for a statement bouquet that stands out from the crowd.

6. Add Ribbon or Tulle

Spending your wedding flowers budget isn't just about flowers.

An example of this is that additions like ribbon and tulle can take floral structures like your bouquet to another level.

They provide a stylish finish that personalises the flowers.

Ribbons are also a beautiful and whimsical addition to a wildflower bouquet for a wedding with a natural vibe.

And, they bring magic to a fairytale-influenced bridal look.

Adding features such as ribbon and tulle works with many types of bouquets.

You can also consider including elements such as wood and twigs in your wedding flower creations, to add texture and depth.

7. Focus on Memorable Tablescapes

Where will your guests spend a great deal of time at your wedding?

The answer to this is likely to be sitting at a table at your reception venue.

So, you want to give them an unforgettable experience.

Your floral tablescapes go a long way to making this happen so they're a major focus for your wedding flowers budget.

We'll work with you so that your budget is spent on creating magical spaces where your guests can savour celebrating your wedding with you.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
Every aspect of your tablescapes helps to convey the overall theme of your celebrations.

So, investing your wedding flowers budget in ensuring flow and cohesion as well as spectacle makes sense.

After all, they're a focal point of your day so making them special is vital.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
We love unleashing our creativity in designing table centrepieces and the overall landscape.

It's something we're passionate about.

And, every detail, no matter how small, is given our full attention.

Our designs don't just look amazing, they're created to enhance the overall experience.

So, we ensure they're at a height and position that doesn't interfere with your guests' social interaction.

Everyone can easily communicate and have a fabulous time.

8. Incorporate Votives and Vases

Still on the subject of tablescapes, we love how the striking effect of your wedding flowers budget can be optimised by adding vases and votives to the overall design.

Placing different coloured blooms in vases of various sizes transforms your wedding tables into a unique and beautiful natural kaleidoscope.

Votives also add a bespoke vibe to your tables.

You can also include candles of different sizes to add interest and depth.

If you're concerned about using real flames in your wedding decor, you can opt for LED candles instead.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
Our team will incorporate votives, vases, and other features into your tablescapes according to your ideas and our vision.

Doing this optimises the results you get from spending your wedding flowers budget.

9. Be Mindful with Your Decor Choices

When you have a wedding flowers budget in place, it can be tempting to use it in an attempt to fill every table, ledge, and alcove in your venue.

This isn't the best way to maximise your wedding flowers budget.

It's important to think holistically when designing your wedding florals.

How do the flowers and structures you choose fit with the decor of your surroundings?

See how our bright and streamlined table centrepieces for a wedding at The Lanesborough perfectly complement the lavish Regency architecture.

The results are attractive rather than distracting.

10. Don't Forget the Foliage

Foliage should feature in your wedding flowers budget as a way of adding depth and texture to centrepieces, bouquets, and installations.

Although greenery such as ivy, ferns, eucalyptus, and jasmine tendrils do not have the same cost implications as the flowers for your wedding they are still a factor when maximising the impact your wedding flowers budget has.

So, don't forget them.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
You can even choose a full foliage bouquet for you or your bridesmaids.

This look really pops when the foliage is continued throughout your wedding decor.
Flowers by Blooming Haus
Whether you're choosing foliage as an accompaniment to flowers or as an element on its own, it's a vital aspect of your wedding flowers budget that shouldn't be underestimated.

We'll help you make the best choices from the array of foliage textures, shapes, colours, and sizes available.
