Doing it yourself is the best way to be a budget saving bride. It requires being a go-getting, creative, and crafty person who recognizes the benefits of designing your own wedding flowers and decorations. One of the best ways to save money is to reuse as many flowers and decorations as possible throughout your big day. Create a cohesive design and be a budget-savvy bride by taking your flowers from the ceremony right to the reception.

Aisle to Reception

Who doesn’t love a well-decorated wedding aisle? This crafty bride placed mason jars of flowers down the entire length of her aisle, leading to the ceremonial arch. The jars contained a few stems of all the flowers in her wedding; daisies, stock, snapdragons, and roses. Then, the bride’s team moved those vases to the reception space once the ceremony was over. The placement of flowers near the Guest List sign enhanced the area and created an immersive appearance throughout the big day.

One of the most common repurposed pieces used from ceremony to reception is the bridal party bouquets and the arch piece. Check out the stunning arch piece, bouquet, and bridesmaid's bouquets. See how we used them as the decor at her head table? The joy spread from both locations as her guests could get a closer look at each special arrangement. Most people don't get to see the finished art pieces that are wedding bouquets.
