While planning for the big day, many brides have the belief that couples must be married in a traditional sea of flowers consisting of beautiful blooms such as roses, lilies and peonies. While any bride would be lucky to get married in a ceremony filled with lovely flowers, not all brides are capable of doing this because of their wedding budget.

An Alternative to Wedding Flowers

Even though flowers are beautiful, think practically about what your budget allows for. Wedding flowers will only last 1 day, and even though flowers are lovely to have at a wedding, there are many ideas that don’t include flowers which brides and grooms can incorporate to provide a romantic atmosphere for their wedding and their guests.

If a lot of flowers cannot fit in your budget, consider searching for a wedding venue with a beautiful backdrop. Think of different and creative places to get married. For example, the classic beach wedding is always a beautiful setting. With a glorious ocean view for guests to look at, there isn’t a great need to go overboard with expensive flowers. At a beach themed wedding you could place sea shells on the ground covering the edge of the wedding aisle. Another idea for an evening beach ceremony, or any outdoor wedding, is to line the aisle with tiki torches or strings of lights instead of having flowers that are decorating the seats. This will provide low, intimate lighting … very romantic!

Other romantic, scenic places that couples might consider are a park, a rustic barn or even a botanical garden (flowers already included!). All of these places are very picturesque and wouldn’t need a lot of flowers and decoration for the wedding ceremony. These types or settings are often beautiful on their own. If you are a more traditional couple, and would like to be married in a church, search for a church with stained glass windows and great architecture details. All of these elements would contribute to a beautiful wedding that any couple would love to have!
