A La Carte Flowers

Affordable Wedding Flowers in The Triangle of North Carolina 

In response to the pandemic and micro weddings, some full-service florists and designers now offer small-scale flower and decor packages. Some packages include pickup or delivery of made-to-order centerpieces and bouquets. This option is perfect for couples who want to save a little bit of money but still have swoon-worthy floral arrangements. It’s also a lot easier than trying to make DIY centerpieces (at least, it is for those of you who are like us and not crafty). Keep scrolling for quick tips on how to save money on florals and our recs for affordable wedding flowers in the Triangle of North Carolina.

Advice on Affordable Wedding Flowers

Along with choosing a local florist, there are several other ways you can save on wedding flowers. By selecting flowers that are local and seasonal, you can save on shipping while also ordering fresh blooms with less expensive stems. Another way to save is to choose bigger blooms. The grand size will cover your space with fewer flowers. Going green with leafy garlands or woodland ferns is also an inexpensive alternative to take up space while enhancing your wedding flowers and decor.
