5 Tips For An Inexpensive Floral Wedding Decorations

Catering, location, wedding dress, table decorations – the cost of a wedding can quickly add up to a small fortune. If you get quotes from a florist for lavish floral wedding decorations with a bridal bouquet, table arrangements, car decorations, etc., the costs here can also quickly be in the high three-digit, if not four-digit range. However, it can also be done much more cheaply. Today we would like to give you a few tips on how you can create inexpensive flower wedding decorations without having to forego a lush flower display.

Tip no. 1: Arrange your flower wedding decorations by yourself

The cost of flower arrangements can be reduced by more than half if you arrange the flowers yourself instead of having custom-made bouquets and arrangements delivered by a florist. Of course, your arrangement won’t be able to compete with masterpieces from a professional, but simple vase decorations are easy to arrange yourself. Do you have a friend who enjoys floristry? Perfect, then ask her for help so that you don’t get stressed out just before the party. It doesn’t have to be the entire flower arrangement – if you don’t dare to do the bridal bouquet, leave it to a florist. If it turns out to be a bit more expensive, you can easily recoup these costs with the self-made table decorations. You can order fresh cut flowers in our online shop and have them delivered to your home – and you will always receive automatic quantity discounts for larger quantities.

Tip no. 2: Use seasonal flowers

Peonies are fantastic flower decorations! But not necessarily in October – at least not if your budget for flowers is limited. While they can be had for a reasonable price in the peak season months of May and June, the cost per stem for these can be well over double or triple in the off-season. Therefore our tip: use seasonal flowers! These are always cheaper than special flower varieties that have to be purchased out of season. In our seasonal calendar, you can get an overview of which flowers are in season in your wedding month. And in our cut flower catalog, you can then select the flowers available for that month in the color and size of your choice.

Tip No. 3: Lots of small vases instead of large arrangements


Small vases have two advantages over large arrangements: on the one hand, single stems are very easy to decorate in the vase without much prior knowledge, whereas an arrangement requires a little more practice and skill. Secondly, with several small vases, each with one or two individual stems, you need a much smaller quantity of flowers than with a large-diameter arrangement. At the same time, several small vases look just as lush as a large arrangement.

You can also save a lot on the vases themselves. Instead of buying vases for one-time use, you can also rent them. Many online shops offer this service if you can’t find what you’re looking for locally. Keep your eyes open for beautiful vase alternatives in your everyday life! For example, jam jars decorated with a bit of lace are great as an inexpensive vintage table decoration, and tin cans can also be sprayed on and used as a vase with a retro look. Especially in the current upcycling trend, unusual ideas can be implemented on a small budget.

Tip No. 4: Use decorative elements several times over

Have you ever thought of using individual decorative elements not just for one purpose, but for several? Church arrangements, for example, also look good later on the cake buffet and the pew pendants can also be used to great effect on the bridal chairs in the location. Good planning and organization are everything – discuss with your witnesses and helpers which short-term changes can be realized without disturbing the course of the celebration too much.

Tip no. 5: Greenery creates fullness

A full array of flowers is what many bridal couples want. However, flowers are usually much more expensive than greenery. However, a little greenery in the vases helps to make the floral decorations look much fuller. Not for nothing is it often said that the greenery trend is one of the most affordable wedding trends around. Even a pure greenery decoration with just a few flowers can look great and is usually quite affordable. It doesn’t always have to be the lavishly tied eucalyptus table garland, individual eucalyptus or Ruscus stems artfully draped can already make such a gorgeous decoration.

With the addition of floral decoration, a magical floral decoration can be arranged!
