3 Secrets on How to save money on your wedding Flowers | Floral Friday Orchid Inspiration at Highlands Inn Big Sur Coast
X X X
If you’re an orchid lover, today’s Floral Friday is for you! These hot pink Phalaenopsis (also known as Moth orchids), take elegant to an entire new level of gorgeousness! Floral Design by Reina shows us how you don’t have to mix and match a wide variety of flowers, to get a stunning centerpiece, and shares a few inside secrets on how to save money when planning a wedding.
Tip #1: If you purchase one type of flower for your wedding or event, it’s extremely less expensive to buy in bulk.
Tip #2: Mirrors! Stack mirrored planter boxes to put your florals in. This deceives the eye into believing there are more flowers than there actually are. What a genius idea!
Tip #3: Phalaenopsis (Moth orchids) are easily accessible in the Spring and Summer months. Purchasing flowers that are in season, instead of having to special order them, will save you tons!
Use the flowers more than just the centerpieces. Add them in bouquets, boutineers, mothers corsages, on a table setting, ceremony arches, and throughout the reception. These simple, yet minor adjustment on your florals, can save your pocketbook a lot of heartache. If you didn’t see last weeks Floral Friday kick off, which also contained these hot pick orchid beauties, check it out HERE! Thank you to Highlands Inn for hosting us and allowing us to use your stunning balcony for our table set up!
