The garlands can be accented with pinecones, fairy lights, or other decorative elements to create a magical ambiance for your guests.

2. Seasonal Centrepieces 

Embrace the beauty of each season by incorporating seasonal flowers into your centrepieces.

By selecting blooms that are in season you ensure their freshness and vibrant colours, while also adding a touch of natural authenticity to your wedding.

For example, spring may bring blossoming cherry blossoms and tulips while summer offers vibrant sunflowers and dahlias.

These seasonal centrepieces not only enhance the overall theme of your wedding but also evoke the spirit of the time of year you have chosen to tie the knot.

4. Festive Centrepieces

If you're having a wedding in late November or December, adding festive touches to your floral centrepieces is a wonderful idea.

Include elements like berries, pinecones or twinkling lights to your floral centrepiece to infuse a festive spirit. Consider using rich reds and greens for a traditional look.

5. Dried Flower Arrangements

Nowadays, many couples choose dried flower centrepieces for their weddings. It's a more environmentally friendly option and adds a rustic touch to the overall vibe.

Dried flower arrangements can be kept as special keepsake allowing you to cherish the memories long after the wedding day has passed.

How to Get Your Dream Wedding Flowers on a Budget

If you're looking to stay within a budget for your wedding flowers there are several strategies you can consider.

  • Swap out expensive options for more affordable blooms or mix and match your favourite flowers with more budget-friendly choices. 
  • Save costs by sourcing flowers locally and seasonally as this helps avoid expensive shipping fees.
  • Avoid big flower weekends like Mother's Day and Valentine's Day when wholesale flower costs tend to skyrocket.
  • Repurpose flowers from one part of the event such as the ceremony to another, like the reception.
