Become a Top Wedding Planner – Money Saving Tips for Buying Bridal Bouquets to Share With Your Brides

 

Recently become a wedding planner and not too savvy yet about helping your brides have the bridal bouquets they want without breaking the bank? The October 2010 issue of Brides magazine has a guide to bouquets that will give you budget tips that you can share when shopping with your brides. Here are a five of them:

1) Suggest the bride ask the florist to make the bouquet with flowers that are in season and locally available. Shipping flowers in from overseas can be very pricey.

2) Limit the variety of flowers. The florist needs to buy bunches of every type of flower the bride wants so she could be paying for blooms she may not need.

3) Limit or skip the glitz. Bouquet jewelry, crystals and feathers will add to the cost of her bouquet.

4) Stick to a simple design to keep labor costs low. Any arrangement that requires extensive hand-wiring, usually for delicate flowers like lily-of-the-valley, will be expensive.

5) Use more foliage that blossoms. Greenery will help keep costs down.

It’s helpful for a bride to bring photos from magazines so florists know what she is looking for, but make sure she understands that magazines often feature very expensive arrangements. Ask her to be flexible if she needs to stick to her budget.
