This trick has come in handy two different times JUST TODAY! Are you ready for it?
Use greenery from nature for some of your accent decor!
Seriously it is one of the finest ideas EVER. You just wait until you scroll down a wee bit to see what I mean exactly. This bride did it, and it was top notch.
There are a few catches, lets be real. One, we have about a 3.5 month window to grasp the opportunity, out of the 12 months in our year. (I suppose that is an untruth actually!!) Getting married in the winter? Go find a forest, I bet there are evergreens there!!
Another Catch is that sometimes it is tough to find out which types endure being cut and out of water, for example to make a table garland. The fix is simple, do some trials.
This is all from nature folks. Stunning isn't it? Oh and look...here is another one!
Here is a true story friend. When numbers are crunched and the quote is given, often if its a little out of reach for some, the first things that are cut out are details such as table garlands and greenery accents. So why not go this route? It is a way to get the look of your dreams for a fraction of the cost.
There are other options also. One being mixing greenery purchased from your local florist with forged greenery. You will have everyone fooled. So if you were originally needing 25 bundles of greenery from your local florist, you could do 8 bundles instead and mix it in.
Here are some of my go to types of greenery in our area. Photos only as I am not sure of the name of them all.
I hope this has been helpful! Please know I love to chat, so if you have any comments or questions please leave them bellow. I look forward to hearing from you! Happy Planning.
