Budget Wedding Flowers
You know how planners recommend making a list of your priorities before you create your wedding budget? Well, I haven’t talked about flowers up until now because they’re way, way down there on our list.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some beautiful flowers at the weddings I’ve attended as a guest. And I love checking out wildflowers on hikes. But spending thousands of dollars on something that’s going to die in less than a week makes my head hurt.
So when our day-of coordinator offered to make our flowers for us, I jumped at the opportunity. She has a wholesale flower permit and access to the flower market at Pike Place, and I have realistic expectations about what she can do with my admittedly small flower budget.
Here’s a little bit of flower inspiration to brighten your day (and hold me over until I can see what our options are in person!).
I love the slightly wild, fresh-picked style that’s been so popular lately. Eucalyptus, large-petaled flowers (peonies, maybe?), a little bit of texture, and exposed stems fit the look I’m going for.
