Tips on Working With a Floral Budget

It is important to have a budget set on the amount you wish to spend in this area. Flowers can become a major expense so, before getting caught up with all the beauty and glory of your selection it is wise for you to come up with a figure that suits your budget before you approach a florist. Be sure to give yourself a minimum of four months when approaching a florist, the time is necessary to for them and yourself to be able to gather important information and recourses for the project. You will hopefully hire an honest florist who will work with your budget providing you have one.
Working with a budget does not mean you will sacrifice any of the beauty or romance, rather, it will allow you the opportunity to shop around, ask questions and determine the most suited arrangements and style while, helping you to get more familiar with floral types and their décor arrangements, you may even get some great ideas.
Typically estimate spending approximately 10% of your wedding cost on the flowers and décor.
Approaching Your Florist With A Budget
Many florist who are given budget to work with can help you decide on the look you are after without breaking the bank. This can be a big help and often you may even come up under budget. Before meeting with your florist, decide on the color scheme, style and size of your wedding to present to the florist. Bring along color swatches so that the florist can recommend flowers that willmatch or work to complement the atmosphere of your ceremony.

The flowers you may see once entering a florist shop are often the ones which can sweep you away and give you ideas on your perfect look but, watch out for there prices. Often the displays are the highest costing arrangements in the shop, they are there to intentionally temp your senses.
The Advantage Of In Season Flowers
A way to eliminate unnecessary expense is to choose flowers that are in season, your florist should be able to point these types out to you. Generally speaking, Easter lilies are traditional in the early spring season. Whit tulips and lilac are also a wonderful in season choice for spring. Peonies are frequent in May, roses are good throughout the summer. Be sure to give serious thought to your flowers selection as they add beauty and romance to your ceremony.
The Beauty In Price With Silk
Another way of cutting cost and staying on budget is with silk flowers. A silk floral arrangement is a great way of cutting cost, done right, they look like the real thing and with a broader choice of colours. While real flowers die quickly after all that money spent on décor, silk flowers can be kept as decorations or keepsake tokens to be used in different decorative projects for home or as a gift to hold long after the wedding. If you are a romantic for the smell of fresh flowers but likes the advantage in silk then compromise is one way of satisfying your spirits. Use real flower in areas more important in silk in other areas.
