Are Flowers Really Worth it?
Are flowers really an expense you should splurge on? I totally understand the thought process – Why spend so much money on something that is going to just die?! While this is not a rash thought, don’t forget that they will be in your wedding images that you will have forever! There are so many expenses when it comes to wedding planning and I totally understand that. Normally, brides prioritize what they want to invest the most in and what they want to try to save money on. Usually brides want to invest in photographer, videographer, and dj. I totally recommend those being high on the list, if not the highest, but don’t leave out flowers! I recommend making your bridal bouquet a huge priority! Spend less on the bridesmaids bouquets and groomsman boutonnieres and focus on your bouquet. I, along with most other photographers, use the bridal bouquet to add to bridal details, reception details, and of course bride and groom portraits. And it really does make a huge difference. The bridal bouquet is a simple focal point when it comes to your images so I highly recommend going for your dream/pinterest-find bouquet. Go big and go bold, add in colors that look great together even if they aren’t exact colors of your wedding (I so regret not doing this for mine!!) And find an experienced florist and TRUST THEM! A good florist knows what they’re talking about. Let them get creative and make your dream bouquet.
