When in doubt, ask your florist for some insight. According to event planner Kristine Cholakian Cooke, owner of Simply Charming Socials, your florist should be able to give you some great alternatives that meet your expectations visually and are also more accessible for your date. "We always find that brides who are more open-minded going into initial floral meetings can truly learn about flowers and options they didn't know existed," says Cooke. "In the end, the results can be beautiful and unexpected."
Our bridesmaids will be carrying champagne hydrangeas. For my bouquet and six bridesmaid bouquets to be done using real flowers through a florist we would be looking at over $300 for teeny tiny bouquets. The cost of us making our own (including a toss bouquet and cake table decorations) was $70. I’ve learned that there are so many hidden costs when planning a wedding that trying to come in under budget will usually end up putting you pretty close to your budget. Despite keeping costs down as much as possible Josh and I are still over our initial wedding budget. Hopefully we can find some more creative ways to save money to help keep our numbers down.
More flowers are in bloom on the summer solstice than on any other day of the year, and summer brides can capitalize on this floral bounty with the wide range of fragrant and affordable wedding flowers available. Not only are these flowers most affordable and lush during June, July, and August, you may also expect to see some of these flowers in bloom if you have an outdoor garden wedding.

Pair your favorite colors with pampass grass and eucalyptus to create a wedding bouquet as unique as you.

Blooming in early summer, yarrow comes in yellow tones, as well as white, pink, and red. The fern-like foliage is attractive as well as a fragrant addition to wedding flower arrangements. Brides should take some of their yarrow-containing flower arrangements home to grace their tables, as the cut flowers can last as long as three weeks. The flowers dry very well if you hang them upside down in a dry area for two weeks.

The awkward-sounding name of this bloom derives from Greek and means “love flower.” Most often available in shades of blue or sometimes white, these delicate flower clusters add volume without density to table centerpieces. Agapanthus is gorgeous on its own when tightly clustered into a bouquet but also adds a pop of color when combined with a neutral bloom such as baby's breath.
