What should I budget for my Wedding Flowers?
A wedding flower budget is like a special little pot of gold set aside just for all the beautiful blooms that will make your big day even more magical. It's the amount of money you decide to dedicate to the floral arrangements and decor that will bring colour and fragrance to your ceremony and reception.
Think of it as your chance to be the ultimate flower child, and create a picture-perfect floral wonderland that will have your guests oohing and ahhing in awe. So, grab your bouquet and let's make some floral dreams come true!

When creating a wedding flower budget, couples tend to enlist the help of a florist who can provide guidance on the cost of various types of floral arrangements, such as bouquets, buttonholes, centrepieces, and ceremony decor. It's important to keep in mind that the cost of wedding flowers can vary greatly depending on the specific flowers and arrangements chosen, as well as the location and time of year.
How much of my entire wedding budget Brighton should I allocate for flowers?
Generally, couples can expect to spend anywhere from 10-15% of their total wedding budget on flowers. However, this percentage may vary depending on the couple's priorities and preferences. For example, if an insta-worthy floral dreamland is your top priority, you may choose to allocate a much larger portion of their budget to floral arrangements.
It's a totally personal choice and really depends on your vision for your day. If you are spending most of your budget on an elaborate Oscar De La Renta Dress then you might want to pair back your florals to only the essentials. If you're wearing a simple & elegant dress you might want to amp up the florals, with abundant displays of colour and texture. Your wedding flower budget Brighton is up to you!
It's important that you communicate your budget clearly to your florist, as this can help us make recommendations that will stay within your budget while still achieving the desired look and feel. I always do my absolute best to make your dreams come true and if your budget doesn't allow for a big focal feature I can suggest alternative options or suggest which items you could cut to make room in your flower budget. I've flowered (what seems like) a million weddings and seen hundreds of combinations of items, so I know what makes an impact and is memorable and what gets lost and is unnoticed.
I'm always super upfront about money and budgets for wedding flowers, it's one of the first questions that I ask couples so that we don't waste precious time being unrealistic about what is possible. I never want to lead you down a path where at the end you can't have your dream floral pieces, so your wedding flower budget is one of the most important pieces of information I work with.
