How much do wedding flowers cost? It just depends on the type of flower, time of year and colors. Keep in mind if you're thinking of getting married during the Christmas season Or around Valentines any red and white flowers will cost more. Always make an appointment with a florist to get accurate pricing for what you're looking for.
One of the easiest ways to save money on your wedding is to buy your wedding flowers in bulk and DIY them yourself (or hire it out to someone looking to build their portfolio). For our wedding, we bought our flowers in bulk from a local wildflower farm and saved a bundle! Here are my top 5 places to buy flowers in bulk for your wedding:
Easy DIY wedding bouquet. For Daunavan's and my wedding, we actually bought ALL 6 of our bridesmaids bouquets, my bridal bouquet, and ALL 30 of our centrepiece flowers from Costco for $90. My best friend's mom made all of the bouquets and they looked amazing. You don't have to have a professional do it to make them look good.
The cost of planning a wedding can add up quick. There are ways to cut on the cost when planned right. From the season you have your wedding to the location of the reception. Everything you decide will determine how much your wedding will cost. For example, it is cheaper to have your reception on a week day rather than the weekend. Keeping your guest list small will save on catering expenses and also drinks if you decide to serve alcohol.
