Did you know that (according to the The Wedding Report) a bride's wedding bouquet costs between $136-$154? How would YOU like to save money on your bridal bouquet and bridesmaids' flowers? If you're reading this blog, I suspect you would like to...
Our best piece of advice = Get grocery store or Costco flowers and DIY your wedding bouquets.
Why? They already package them in pretty bouquets. They're really inexpensive, usually less than $20. Even if you need to purchase 2 of their bouquets for a really full look, you've saved yourself some serious cash! Once you're purchased your flowers (should be the day of the wedding if possible), keep them in water as long as you can until you need to make the bouquet. Simply secure the trimmed stems in 2 places with floral wire, wrap the stems with ribbon then secure the ribbon with pins. Violla!
Another great idea is to grow your own flowers. Yes, you will need to be conscious of what blooms and when in your area, but you can grow exactly what you'd like and have some nice, organic wedding flowers!
