Forward by Daniella: Flowers play a huge part in the overall look and feel of your wedding day and the ones you choose for your bouquet are the most important. I get lots of questions from brides on how they can still have flowers in their bouquets that make an impact without breaking the bank. To help with this, we teamed up with flower expert Ann Remo from Gardening Limited. While living in various parts of the country Ann built her knowledge of flowers and today tends to her own garden and also her blog where she shares her passion with her readers.

Having a beautiful wedding on a budget can be tricky, but with careful planning and creativity, it can be pulled off very well. One important detail on any bride’s big day is deciding on the right bouquet to carry down the aisle. Since we are talking about weddings on a budget, today I want to mention the top five most inexpensive flowers to use in a wedding bouquet.
With some research, you will find that there is a variety of inexpensive flowers that can be used to make a gorgeous wedding bouquet. Wedding style, colors, location, and the season you want to be married in may mean some of these flowers may not be available to you, but hopefully, this list will give you a better idea on what to look for when choosing flowers for your inexpensive wedding bouquet. Let’s look at each of these factors in more detail below before talking about those flowers.
Is your dress over the top or simple? Your overall dress style is an important factor when choosing what type of flowers to include in your bouquet. You may only want to carry one flower or a bouquet with one type of flower down the aisle.
I was planning on buying a single stemmed rose since my dress was a simple short spring dress that I bought on clearance on a whim. One of my awesome sisters-in-law ended up making me a gorgeous colorful bouquet that I still love seeing in my wedding pictures to this day. One way to choose flowers is by looking at your beautiful dress.
Another factor when choosing from these flowers is the color scheme of your wedding. You want to choose flower colors that match and compliment the overall look and style of your wedding day. I love color, so all of these flowers would make a perfect fit for my bouquet, but your wedding day may have one or a specific set of colors.
The season you are planning on getting married in may determine what type of inexpensive flowers will be made available to you. If you will be married in a warmer climate your choices will be wider than if you choose to be married in the wintertime, for example. With some research, you can find the perfect flowers for your wedding season.
Now that you are keeping in mind your wedding style, colors and the season you will be married in, take note of these beautiful and inexpensive flowers that make great additions to any wedding. Use one or all of these flowers to make a unique wedding bouquet!
Here are the top five most inexpensive flowers to use in a wedding bouquet.
These fun flowers come in a variety of colors and sizes. Make a bouquet with several daisies in the same color, a mix of colors, or with several other types of flowers.
Carnations are one of my favorite flowers since they last long as cut flowers. Carnations are definitely not the fanciest looking of flowers, but they make great bouquets in a bunch or mixed with other flowers. These pretty petaled flowers bloom in late spring.
Baby’s Breath are definitely one of the go-to flowers when you are looking for something to add to a wedding bouquet. Although small in size, Baby’s Breath can add dimension to a bouquet of different sized flowers. These flowers bloom in summer so keep that in mind when choosing flowers for your bouquet.
Sunflowers are another popular but inexpensive type of flower used in wedding bouquets. Seeing these large, bright, yellow flowers makes me super happy and they will add a pop of color and dimension to any wedding bouquet. Sunflowers make great additions to summer weddings.
Chrysanthemums, or mums, are another type of flower that comes in a variety of sizes and colors. If you are looking to use a small flower, you will want the garden mums. The larger, showier type are the florist mums.
Whether you use some of these flowers or a combination of them and others, you will be able to make a beautiful and inexpensive wedding bouquet that will look timeless with your dress on your special day.
