Picking the types of wedding flowers for your special day can really be a daunting task. There are sooooo many types of wedding flowers and those Pinterest-worthy images you’ve probably seen can make them all look stunning. And unfortunately, some wedding planners, florists, and organisers will not give you their most honest opinion when it comes to helping you choose the most affordable wedding flowers that will look gorgeous for your wedding day. Seasonal availability and the climate of where you’re being married are often overlooked but crucial factors.
Pro Tip: If you’re looking to have a gorgeous bridal bouquet on your wedding day, expensive or inexpensive wedding flowers won’t look much different as long as they’re arranged, mixed, and matched professionally. It’s also important to consider your wedding’s date since particularly out of season flowers will cost you much more than seasonal wedding flowers and may be extremely difficult to source. The key is to do your own research before consulting with any wedding florists or organisers.
