BLOOM BUD­GET 101

New Zealand Weddings - - PLANNING -

Keep these point­ers in mind, if you think you might need to trim your flo­ral bud­get:

If you’re get­ting mar­ried in a breath­tak­ing out­door lo­ca­tion, con­sider keep­ing flo­rals min­i­mal to let the venue shine.

Keep it sim­ple and stick to one or two types of flow­ers paired with lots of green­ery.

“Us­ing sea­sonal flow­ers is es­sen­tial,” says Rosie Holt of Rose Tinted Flow­ers. “Get­ting pe­onies shipped from the States is not cost-ef­fec­tive.”

Don’t for­get to ask about any ad­di­tional costs, such as trans­porta­tion to the venue or hireage for vases and flo­ral stands.

Set aside an ex­tra cou­ple of hun­dred dol­lars just in case – bet­ter safe than sorry.

Flow­ers should equal 8-10% of your bud­get.
