Dallas Florists Offer Tips for Saving on Wedding-Day Blooms

“Forgoing boutonnieres, corsages, and flower girl crowns can help save hundreds.” —Jessica Huston, Root and Bloom Floral Design

“Consider color. White flowers are typically cheaper. There is a premium price tag on some specialty varieties that come in popular wedding palettes such as blush, burgundy, and champagne.” —Ashley Cortese, The Rogue Rose

“Put your floral budget into your reception and don’t do anything at the church. Your guests are only there for a short time and likely won’t remember what flowers were on display.” —Kerrie Smith, A Stylish Soiree

“We recommend using larger blooms, such as hydrangea, to cover more real estate.” —Taylor Pritchett, Lilium Floral Design

“Personal bridal party flowers can take up a significant amount of a tight budget. Either reduce the size of the bridal party or give your bridesmaids a more simple design to carry.”
Maxine Owens, Max Owens Design

“We incorporate rental pieces and candles, as the cost of renting a tall, gorgeous candelabra may bring the same wow factor as a tall floral arrangement at a fraction of the cost.”
Joche Westmoreland, Joche W. Events
