Many a bride has fallen out of love with her wedding flowers when she sees how much they’re going to cost.
However, if you have a wedding on the horizon and you’re looking for fabulous flowers, you’ll love these chic and cheap ideas from one of Perth’s leading florists.
The starting point is the choice of flowers – and A Touch of Class florist highly recommends that brides choose those varieties that will be widely available at the time of the event. The florist also says that white flowers can be pricier than coloured ones because some of the more delicate ones bruise easily and flower shops have to order an extra flower delivery to compensate for that.
Another cost-saver is to buy flowers online from a wholesaler.
The florists all say that brides shouldn’t dismiss the humble chrysanthemum as it’s a versatile and fabulous wedding flower. Just imagine round balls of oasis, with white chrysies packed tightly around them, running the length of the table.
An inexpensive but fabulously stylish idea is to use simple paper bags over ordinary containers to bring out your colour scheme.
Flowers grown in pots are also becoming an increasingly popular choice for weddings, say the flower shops in Perth. It just needs a bit of forward planning to get the flower delivery blooming on time, but potted orchids, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies-of-the-valley and even miniature roses look absolutely sensational when dressed up in their wedding finery with tulle, organza, ribbon or even feathers.
Size counts, says A Touch of Class, and brides should be mindful that bigger flower heads such as hydrangeas may be more expensive per bloom but will take up more space in a vase than say, three roses or three tulips.
If you’re getting married, why not have a chat to your local flower shop or online florist about your wedding flower delivery that will give you just what you want for less than you’d expect!
