8. Still Want Flowers?
Many Brides just have their hearts set on flowers for their wedding decorations. How do you use flowers while staying within a strict budget? Firstly, avoid flowers that aren’t in season. Fake flowers are another option; you can get quality artificial flowers these days that will not break the bank. If you must have fresh then you’ll need to keep the damage to a minimum. As opposed to having arrangements on your tables, you could scatter pretty petals over the tables. Otherwise a single stem flower in an elegant vase is simple but sophisticated. Another trick is to bring your ceremony flowers to the reception. Decorate your cake or gift table and your guests will never know.
