Wedding flowers are one of the most important elements of your special day. They set the tone, define the color palette, and express your personal style. Some brides choose to buy flowers wholesale and attempt to design them themselves. They arrive in a cardboard box just prior to the wedding, allowing little time for the bride and family members to deal with them. Everyone is scrambling at the last minute, rather than socializing and enjoying loved ones from out of town. At The Holly Berry we hand process all flowers on arrival and cooler all arrangements so they are at their peak of freshness. The following are just of few suggestions and ideas for cost cutting.
1. All glassware for centerpieces doesn’t have to match. Using assorted sizes and styles (borrowed from friends or purchased from garage sales or Goodwill) will save cost and add interest to the tables.
2. Limit the bouquets to a single type of flower. A bouquet of all gerberas, hydrangeas, roses or sunflowers can be quite stunning.
3. Cut your own sticks and branches that your florist can add to centerpieces for extra flair.
4. Cut down on your set up fee by asking a family member to pin on corsages and place centerpieces the day of the wedding. All florist are more than happy to answer any questions that day.
Most importantly, a professional florist can handle problems that may come up concerning slight changes in colors or flowers without bothering the bride on your important day. The Holly Berry staff has over 100 years of combined experience of wedding work and is sensitive to the needs of all wedding budgets.
