How Much Should I Budget for Wedding Flowers?

Budgeting might be one of the most stressful parts of planning your wedding but the more you know about the cost of things, the more you can prepare. The first thing to know about budgeting for your wedding flowers is that your venue and the time of year of your wedding are big factors when it comes to the price of flowers. For example, if you imagine bright sunflowers or elegant hydrangeas at your wedding, it is likely to find them cheaper during the summer when these flowers are naturally in bloom. But opting for summer species for your winter wedding might drive up the cost of flowers in their off-season because there will be less supply of these seasonal species. Considering your venue, the price of wedding flowers will depend on how much space you will want or need to fill up and decorate using flowers.

According to a study by The Knot, the average cost for wedding flowers in 2021 was $2,300. However, it is important to remember that the cost of flowers will be extremely dependent on the flowers you pick for your wedding and the time of year your wedding is held. When you opt for a professional florist to handle the flowers for your wedding, you are receiving so much care, expertise, and promise compared to buying fresh flowers in bulk at your local grocery store.

A professional flower shop, like Sweetwater, offers fresh cut flowers grown locally from their wholesaler or flower farm. The florist not only meticulously designs the arrangements for stunning flowers at your wedding, but they also guarantee proper handling and storage of the flowers to ensure they look perfect for your wedding day. When you pick up your wedding flowers from Sweetwater, we can arrange a specialized travel box with water for the flowers to safely arrive at your venue. Speak with our professional florists at Sweetwater to receive an estimate for wedding flowers and for more details about what is included in our wedding flower packages in Colorado Springs.

Which Flowers Do I Choose for My Colorado Wedding?

Whether you are imagining your wedding to be flourishing with exotic flowers or traditionally decorated with red and white roses, the flowers you
choose for your wedding should be special to you. Flowers hold a longstanding message of love, passion, and emotion. At Sweetwater, we believe flowers share a special language that can spread natural joy and love between others unlike anything else. Our hope is that all the brides who walk through our doors share with us what flowers mean to them so we can do our best to fulfill your vision of your dream wedding.
If you love wispy and whimsical, talk to your Sweetwater florist about a looser, more organic bridal bouquet! If you are a bride looking for a style on the fun side of things, you will want to consider a varied mix of flowers combined with loose greenery. Flowers best for the whimsical bouquet include buttercups (ranunculus) and cream roses to align with this less formal look. Then pick wispy greenery such as seeded eucalyptus, viny jasmine, and Ruscus. With the loose cut flowers and greenery, your bridal bouquet will appear bigger as you walk down the aisle.

For a tighter bound bouquet popular for the elegant and traditional look, roses are almost always the featured flower. The round bouquet or posy bouquet will feature a prominent cut flower, typically the rose, tightly bound together for a clean, put-together look for your walk down the aisle. Hydrangeas, peonies, and blossoms are popular flowers for the traditional bouquet as these types of petals help create the dome structure of the florals

What Are Wedding Flower Trends in 2022?

Flower trends for weddings in 2022 are planted in the roots of earthy colors and styles. For example, utilizing the elegant look of pampas grass, branches, and leafy greenery are big trends for the natural elements in weddings currently. Adding greenery such as these examples help fill the visual gaps at your venues such as between table centerpieces in the reception area. To add interest and diversity in floral arrangements, especially bouquets, another trending style is to use the bright colored Amaranth and curly willow flower. There are so many design styles for your wedding flowers, leaving plenty of options to personalize your wedding! Speak with one of our Sweetwater florists about all the ideas and design styles you wish to see at your dream wedding.
