3 Cost Effective Wedding Flowers Options

More and more brides are on a tight budget when it comes to planning their special day. For some the first thing to try to cut back on are flowers. If you do plan on cutting back here are a few things to consider:

First: Try to pick a florist who understands your budget requirements and wont try to up sale you on flowers that are out of season or not in your budget. Be honest with you florist about bottom line cost and what you have to have and what you can live with out.

Second: Be very careful when price comparing with florist. Prices vary based on a multitude of reasons. If you are planning on price shopping, be sure to know exactly what you are pricing out. For instance I had a bride come into my shop and had told me that she had gotten a much less expensive quote form another florist, but could not tell me what flowers were being quoted or quantity. One bouquet quote for the same flowers may vary just based on quantity alone. So be sure to know exactly how many roses, flower etc. are going into your bouquet or arrangement so you will have an accurate comparison from florist to florist.(I.E: an $80 bouquet from one florist may have 6 roses where another florist may have 12). If there is minimal price difference go with the florist you feel most comfortable with and who understands your style and needs.

Third: Look for alternative options for your floral needs. Here at Flower Boutique we offer a “DIY” service for the budget conscious bride, or for the hands on bride. You and your bridal party create your own bouquets and centerpieces. Our space and services are designed to have bridal parties come in and create their own bouquets and arrangements for their wedding. It is a fun and affordable way to have flowers for your special day with a cost savings of anywhere between 30% — 50%.

Chris and Julie’s Unique Ice Carving

DJ Network member, ATMOSPHERE PRODUCTIONS provided the entertainment for Chris and Julie’s June 23rd wedding and thought this was a truly unique ice carving….. Red Sox fans can skip the picture.

In the past we’ve noticed that many couples choose the same type of ice carving themes: Swans, hearts, doves and angels.  This New York Yankees logo carving was something i’ve never seen before.  It certainly was a most unforgettable feature of Chris & Julie’s wedding.

What would you select for a truly unique ice carving?  Take a look at these ideas from Ice Matters from Waterbury, CT

Affordable Centerpieces for Your Wedding Reception

Affordable Centerpieces for Your Wedding Reception By Mia LeCron

When it comes to decorating your reception tables, the centerpieces for each table play a major role in setting the tone and style of your wedding. They will be one of the major focal point for your guests while they are eating their meal, and spectacular or unique centerpieces can add an element of sophistication or surprise to your event.

The most established kind of centerpiece is flowers and it is the most expected. There are literally hundreds of floral centerpiece designs, from tall lilies to tightly packed roses.

You should really shop around and check out different wedding supply shops and online specialists to see the different possibilities, and look at the varying prices. You must also remember that you will need a centerpiece for every table, so it could get expensive if you are planning to invite a large guest list.

For a cheaper option, buy the flowers yourself from a wholesaler, and produce simple displays such as six tulips in a glass vase. You could also use the bridesmaids’ bouquets as centerpieces to really get the best value out of them.

Believe it or not, this happens all the time. Instead of fresh cut flowers, consider using potted plants as centerpieces. You can decorate terracotta pots and pick plants that flower in co-coordinating colors to your scheme.

These centerpieces will last long after the day has finished, and provide a lovely gift for those you would like to give them to.

Popular alternatives to floral centerpieces include candles and fruit. Candles are a wonderful way of creating an air of romance and enchantment for your wedding, and look particularly effective if your venue is dimly lit. However, if you plan to hold your reception in the afternoon, with plenty of natural daylight, candles may not produce the appropriate dramatic effect.

You could purchase candelabras for each table for an elegant look, or consider the less formal appearance of floating candles in a large glass bowl.

You must ensure that any holders or bowls you use are heat-resistant, and also check with your venue for any restrictions they may have on the use of naked flames.

Fruit is a nice and decorative choice, and can also be eaten later in the evening! Other edible choices include candy, chocolate lollipops or Hershey’s Kisses. Use your imagination to display whatever treats you choose in an exciting way, using glitter, streamers or balloons.

You can be as original as you like when it comes to your centerpieces, and you could choose something really personal such as hand-written poems or family photographs in ornate picture frames.

If you are having a themed wedding, create a unique centerpiece that reflects the wedding motif. A wonderful centerpiece for an oriental themed wedding is a bonsai tree, or large origami creations. Anything that matches your theme is best.
