If your heart is set on a huge cascade of orchids and gardenias, find other ways to cut the overall bill.
Instead of full flower wreaths, have your flower girls or junior bridesmaids sport a delicate halo of baby’s breath. This flower is so economical that just one stem at less than a dollar can be enough to dress two wreaths! A bridal bouquet comprised of nothing but baby’s breath and a few sprigs of purple statice would also be beautiful and inexpensive.
But, if you still must have the orchids, downscale on the attendants bouquets, it’s YOUR day after all!
