Flowers are some of the most beautiful, and oftentimes most expensive, elements of your wedding. Marcy Blum, wedding and event planner and author of Wedding Planning For Dummies, talks with Lisa Birnbach of about wedding flowers.

Marcy offers some great tips for cutting costs on flowers, including the use of seasonal flowers or inexpensive varieties, such as sunflowers. She also provides some decorating advice to make things a little more dramatic, including the use of candles and only one type of flower rather than mixed bouquets and arrangements.

You should also consider using silk flowers instead of fresh, particularly in centerpieces. Or another alternative is to use flowering potted plants or baskets of fruit instead of traditional floral centerpieces. If other aspects of your reception are more important to you, such as food, wine or the location, don’t be afraid to cut back on your flower budget.
