Wedding Day would not be happily concluded without fresh & beautiful flowers and some creative arrangements by professional florists like Farm florist, honey combers, happy bunch, etc., whose services will undoubtedly add pops of colors to your big day.

Flower bouquets, bundles, boutonnieres, corsages, altarpieces, and table centrepieces will add a large number of dollars to the all-out wedding bill. So, if you are planning for your special day’s flower arrangement and want to do wedding décor, check out below 7 amazing ways to get affordable wedding flowers for any budget. We hope these tips will make your day ravishing with an affordable budget plan.

1. Visit your local flower shops


Many local grocery stores have a separate department for flowers so you can try to contact these stores in your area to get hold of the fresh flowers the moment it is delivered to them. You may get it at a much lower price as compared to professional florists. These stores also offer affordable floral packages that include corsages, bouquets, boutonnieres and ceremony flowers. With an added bonus, you can also place an order for your wedding cake from the same shop to create a good relationship with them. With that, maybe they will also give more discount on your flower package.

2. Buy flowers from wholesale retailer

If you are living in a big city like Singapore, explore your local flower market to get fresh buds at lower prices from wholesale retailers. Professional services such as Flower Delivery Singapore ships creative flower packs with free same-day delivery as low cost as possible. Though you have to remember, it is essential that you understand all the flower arrangement process thoroughly if you want to plan everything on your own while making sure it fits your budget. You would need best floral shears, decorative wrap, floral tape and pins for the bouquets, or a vessel for the flowers to effectively coordinate your budget with wholesale flower shopping.

3. Place an online order for your wedding flowers

Arranging flowers for your wedding on your own will create a hectic schedule for you. As an alternative choice, go online; browse some best flowers delivery websites to ease your workload. They will provide fresh flowers delivery on-time. However, this can cost more than buying flowers from wholesalers, but it can save you a lot of time with an assurance that you will get the best flowers for your special day décor.

4. Go for potted options


Wedding flowers come at expensive costs, so it becomes quite stressful to manage such things on your own. To avoid the pressure of arranging wedding flowers at low prices, go for potted plants, herbs or flowers rather than a cut flower arrangement. You will still get the fresh aroma, colours, and textures of cut flowers with a fraction of the total flower’s price.

5. Silk flower is also a great option


Artificial silk flowers can also create a classic look to your wedding décor just like real fresh flowers. They won’t wilt or fall apart, and also you don’t need to be kept moist or cool until your event, so you purchase them anytime before your wedding. However, silk flowers can be expensive but can sell them later at best which will help you defray the wedding arrangement cost. There are some florists available who give silk flowers on rent, and you can return them after your special event.

6. Say “I Do” in the presence of nature


Even the most lavish wedding décor can pale as compared to the natural outdoors beauty. Choose a spot for your big day where you can advantage from natural colours and textures offered by the vines, shrubs, trees, wildflowers and bushes. For example, you can go to your local botanical garden without spending much. Say “I do” to your soul mate under a big willow tree in the presence of nature and cut down your wedding décor cost at a great extent – it doesn’t make the special occasion less special.

7. Use creative centerpieces


There are considerable alternatives to traditional wedding flowers such as vases with pearls, classic centrepieces with stones, crystals, feathers, lanterns and leaves, so if you want décor at affordable costs, you also go for this idea. You can also arrange your own wedding centrepieces by hanging you and your partner’s framed photos when you both were still kids; it adds fun to your wedding day.
