When it comes to booking the florist for your wedding, it's very common for couples to experience some serious sticker shock. From corsages and boutonnieres to altar arrangements and reception centerpieces, the tally adds up quickly, leaving some brides to rethink their dream bouquet. Wedding budgets are serious business and keeping your purchases within them can be tricky. While there are many ways to save money on your wedding as well as wedding budget cuts you should avoid, finding cost-effective alternatives to your ideal flowers may not be as obvious.
While in your wedding floral dreams, you may picture thousands upon thousands of exotic flowers making their appearance in every inch of the day, it's likely that your budget just doesn't allow for it. And trust me when I tell you, that's okay! Two of my favorite cost-cutting options are quickly being recognized for their tiny price tag as well as their undiscovered elegance: carnations and baby's breath.
Baby's breath? YES! I know what you're thinking, but stay with me here and tell me these photos aren't gorgeous...baby's breath or not!
