Some couples prefer that their guests throw rose petals as confetti, but why not take this a step further. Any type of small flower can look very pretty as confetti, especially in wedding photos. You can opt for Daisies, Piper’s Anemone, Asters, Bluebells, and Jasmine for your wedding confetti. Using fresh wildflowers is a wonderfully colorful confetti idea.
You can use dried leaves for your Autumn Wedding as your confetti. It is eco-friendly, and will also suit the surroundings of this gorgeous season. You can collect these leaves all over your garden and neighborhood – just be sure to keep them stored in a dry place. Or you can use dried petals for a slightly more colorful, but still nature-based option.
Couples tend to push their budget more towards catering and drinks for the pre-drinks and then ensure there is enough furniture i.e. seating and entertainment to ensure the guests can relax and enjoy themselves. When it comes to flowers you as the couple can ensure some arrangements on coffee and bar tables that pull through the theme of your wedding.
It is important to assess your pre-drinks area first and see what it lends itself to. If you are getting married during summer and have a gorgeous outside pre-drinks area; flowers are necessarily that important and needed.
There’s a misconceived idea from some brides about the budget for their flowers. If you’ve got this Pinterest picture it’s almost certain that it will cost a lot of money to recreate. Any budget can work, but you need to be willing to accept the type of look your budget will allow. R5 000 can work if you’re willing to manage your expectations. If you are very serious about a certain look, you would have to cut/plan your budget better in other departments.
