How to Save on Wedding Flowers! 


So this wedding process has been crazy! With less than two months to go, I couldn’t be more excited! Planning has taken up most of my free time (hence the lack of posts), but I think it will be worth it when our day finally gets here. 

One area of the planning process is flowers. As beautiful as they are, they are also extremely expensive! One of our quotes neared $2,500!! Outrageous! I only have three bridesmaids and groomsman. How can it be that expensive!?? 

Luckily, I’ve found an alternative that is both beautiful and cost effective. Where I live we have a lot of Amish and Minnonite families. One Minnonite family is known for providing beautiful flowers for weddings throughout the year. The woman who does the flowers has been beyond wonderful! She knows what flower works with others, is so flexible, & most importantly affordable! 

Her total for our wedding flowers is $520! Granted, we would have to attach any ribbon to bouquets (she has to do two other weddings our wedding weekend, we will finish off the bouquets and such). Still, I was just shocked at the wonderful help and price!

My advice for wedding flowers is to try to find local or whole sale locations. You will save hundreds. Also, don’t be afraid to put the arrangements together yourself. There are numerous YouTube videos that can provide guidelines. Put that money towards something else for the wedding! 😉
