    We found a balance. Got beautiful flowers for the bouquets but centerpieces are a small vase of flowers so those are not too costly

    I will be saving.

    I am not picky at all when it comes to flowers, but I do have a color theme that I would like to keep through the event: white and baby pink. I was told my other brides that they got their wedding bouquets and decor from the floral department of their local grocery stores. I have seen their prices and they said that they can do a bouquet for around $20. As for the centerpieces, I have not yet decided if I want to go with real flowers, tissue paper, or something else, but I'm definitely planning of saving.

    We are going all out in a sense where we are getting specific flowers to get a look I want.

    We have shopped around to find the best quality and price so I'd like to think we saved. We're also only getting a bouquet for me and my (2) bridesmaids. I'm making tissue paper flower bouquets for our centrepieces which has also saved a fortune.

    Save! We did paper flowers instead of real flowers and it was the best decision ever! They were less expensive, lighter, we could get them in whatever colours we wanted, we didn't have to worry about them wilting and we could keep them afterwards! Everyone raved about the flowers! (We got them from Etsy and the vendor was More Paper Than Shoes.)

    Paper Bouquet and Rings

    P.S. love that lego bouquet!

    We are getting more flowers than I had originally thought we would but I just couldn't help myself. Our florist gave us some good ideas and I loved them so we went with them. It is all going to cost under $1500 so I am happy with that!

    I will splurge to get the flowers done all at a reasonable price, just have to have the connections through family and friends who are crafty to lend a helping hand.

    Saving. Real flowers at cost from the wedding planner we have for the day of wedding. We pay for the flowers and she puts them together for free! Our center pieces are going to be leaves with stringed led lights!

    Save! We are doing bouquets but having non floral centrepieces. The venue has some outdoor planters we can move around so we will use those during the ceremony

    Save! We did the traditional bouquets and they were big and voluptuous! But I didn't get any centrepieces from her or decorations. Plus she does it from home so her costs are down

    Save! We decided on non-floral centerpieces to save money. I originally didn't even want to do bouquets - the girls were going to carry lanterns instead, but my fiancé is a little more traditional and wanted floral bouquets. We're just going to keep it simple with some baby's breath bouquets!

    Save! Our flowers for the venue are included in the price. So we pretty much just need to look into the bouquets etc which I don't plan on spending too much money on it.

    Save . We will be making the bouquets and the venue comes with centrepiece that we really liked . Maybe order some bulk flowers for a few extra decor pieces but not planning on spending much

    I want to save, but I don't know how! Everywhere seems so expensive. I want simple wildflower bouquets and boutonnières and I want to arrange the flowers in the centrepieces myself. Anyone got any tips on the most cost effective way to do this?

    Save , this isn't worth it to us. We are having lovely bouquets, the venue supplies center pieces, and I'm adding some glass vases with sunken orchids and candles to the head table only. That's it for flowers.

    So much saving here. Planning on doing paper/paper mache flowers from old newspapers. This way it can be recycled and and it fits the theme
