Buckhead florist, Peachtree Petals, has become synonymous with Atlanta weddings. Our FTD Master Certified florists have an abundance of experience in planning and executing flowers and decor for wedding ceremonies and receptions. It is this experience and dedication to customer happiness that has caused Peachtree Petals to be named Atlanta’s number one wedding florist by WeddingWire.com and TheKnot.com. Throughout all of the brides our staff has met with, there seems to be one thing in common: All brides have a budget they must stay within. We work with brides with budgets of all sizes and we’re always looking to provide them with the best value for their dollar. In an effort to do so, here are some tips for saving money on wedding flowers.
Repurpose Flowers: The wedding ceremony is when all eyes will be on the wedding party at the end of the aisle. Since this is the one part of the day where there is one focal point, try playing up that focal point with flowers. Create an aisle way or altar out of flowers and be sure your bouquet and the bouquet of your attendants are full and pop with color. You can then re-purpose all of these gorgeous flowers by using them in the reception space. They can be used as centerpieces, head table or cake table decor, and more.
Corsages: A new trend on the wedding scene is to remove bouquets for bridesmaids and opt for floral wrist or hair corsages. The wrist corsages are perfect for freeing up your bridesmaids hands during the ceremony and are more useful in the reception rather than a bouquet that will be abandoned as the dance floor begins to liven up. A hair corsage does the same, but what is truly unique to this idea is the unexpectedness of the flowers being worn in the hair rather than carried down the aisle.
Artificial Flowers: Artificial flowers have come a long way since their introduction. With our Permanent Botanicals collection launched last year, we can easily incorporate these realistic long-lasting flowers into your big day. You could have a combination of fresh and artificial flowers, or simply use your favorites from our gorgeous collection of artificial flowers.
In-Season Flowers: While we will try to use whatever flowers you desire for your big day, we recommend looking at flowers that are in season around the time you intend to be wed. This will drastically help cut costs in your flower budget. When our accomplished team sits down with you to discuss your ideas and budget, they can also discuss what flowers would be in-season and which would be the best value in terms of affordability and most importantly, quality.
Go Green: For spring and summer weddings, centerpieces and decor with lots of greens are perfect. These greens are budget friendly and make the perfect background for bright pops of colors from fewer flowers. We recommend our Pure Essence Bouquet which features greenery like white cabbage, star of bethlehem, and green trick, which perfectly compliment the few white blooms inside.
