Weddings don’t have to be expensive especially when it comes to blooms. But of course, we want something inexpensive but looks great still – for our guests and the photos. Here are 10 amazingly beautiful yet inexpensive flowers for your bouquets and all other flower arrangements.
Baby’s Breath is economical and charming, and it is the elegant and traditional bloom for bridal bouquets. The best thing about this, aside from being extremely affordable, is it is available in all seasons.
It looks great on long, trailing ribbons for an ethereal wedding and they make a nice, delicate, and airy flower crown. Baby’s Breath is the champion among all budget flowers.
Alstroemeria, also known as Peruvian Lily, is another hardy and affordable flower that has a wide range of eye-catching colors - a perfect fit for every bridal theme. It comes in many different patterns and volume and is usually smaller in size. What’s more? It’s meaning is associated with friendship, fortune, and prosperity.
Wax flower is perfect as an accent or filler flower in bouquets, centrepieces,or bouts. They look like little Lilies of the Valley and they usually come in two-tone colors. This flower has a woodsy feel with many blooms on one stem.
Daisy is a great flower to use for cheery springtime bouquets. A classic budget wedding flower is the Gerbera Daisy that comes in a wide range of colors and sizes. Daisy spray, on the other hand, is hardy and is an easy mix to any bloom for a wildflower feel.
Carnations are pretty well-known for being one of the longest-lasting cut flowers. They also have typical appearances on weddings as their uniquely serrated petals are great for bouquets. Plus, they are great for tall arrangements and a perfect filler to any design.
Chrysanthemum, also known as mums, is a great flower to add to wedding bouquets for their lush, exotic blooms, that look similar to pom poms, without having to give out extreme amount of cash. In choosing mums as a wedding flower, be specific on the type of stem you want - whether to use compact and smaller flowers known as the garden mums, or the spidery and big blossoms known as the florist mums.
Roses for wedding bouquets is a no-brainer. Knowing the fact that it is famous for being a romantic flower, roses are also relatively inexpensive. Plus, they come in a variety of designs, colors, and sizes - with some even looking like peonies.
Queen Anne’s Lace
Queen Anne’s Lace can be easily mistaken for Baby’s Breath due to their similarity in having tiny white blossoms. But this flower is being distinguished by its flat-topped cluster. It prettily adds a texture to other blooms when mixed, and usually serves as the ‘green’ for the bride who doesn’t want lots of greenery on her bouquet.
Lilies are stunning no matter what type they are. They always seem to look delicate and sophisticated at the same time. Their huge, beautiful petals always stand-out in every arrangement. The moment you will see the variety of their colors and sizes, they will never look the same way to you again.
Sunflower has big, bright petals with a variety of bright colors that could make any day to seem bright and happy. Their strong stalks are great to place in unexpected locations around the venue.
