The bride and groom are often asked whether they have any flowers they would like to give away on their wedding day instead of buying flowers.

Wedding bouquets can be expensive, and if you’re like most couples, you’re probably wondering how to save money on wedding flowers. Here are some tips for finding discounts and negotiating better prices:

Look online. 

When you’re looking for wedding flowers, the best place to start is by checking online. Find deals on wedding flowers by using search engines. You can type in specific types of flowers, locations, or even dates to find the best deals.

There are often deals to be had on flowers, and online flower vendors often offer free delivery when you spend a certain amount.

Many wedding businesses offer online discounts and special offers. Check out their websites before visiting in person.

Ask around. 

You’ll be surprised at what people know about where to find discounts on wedding flowers. Talk to your friends and family, or look online for forums or blogs that discuss the topic.

Friends, family, and acquaintances may have connections to local florists who are willing to give you a discount. Be persuasive and ask for at least 15% off the regular price. You might even be able to get a discount simply by mentioning that you’re looking.

Compare prices. 

Are the flowers you want affordable, or do you want to spend a little bit more for high-quality flowers?

Before you even start shopping, make sure you have an idea of the types of flowers you want and the prices that are available. You can find prices for flowers on Ecommerce websites, wedding blogs, and wedding showrooms.

Use price comparison tools.

If you’re looking for a specific type of flower, like roses, there are often many online price comparison tools that can help you find the best deal. Check out several sites to find the best deals on flowers.

Once you have a few potential florists in mind, start comparing prices. It’s important to find a florist who will offer you a good deal on flowers.

Ask about delivery. 

Many florists offer delivery for an extra charge. Ask about this fee before making your final selection. Also, make sure to find vendors who can deliver to your venue. Otherwise, you’ll have to carry the flowers with you on your wedding day, which can be a hassle.

Ask about substitutions. 

Sometimes florists will allow you to make substitutions, such as using dried flowers instead of fresh ones. Be prepared to discuss what substitutions you are willing to make and what is acceptable to the florist.
