There’s no doubt that a Quinceañera celebration can get quite expensive, but there are quite a few ways you can save money on your party.
Use these tips to cut the cost of the flower arrangements for your Quince!
Make them Yourself – In order to save on your floral arrangements, why not make them yourself instead of hiring a florist. There are many websites that offer bulk floral packages so you can create your own arrangements in the comfort of your own home. If you need a little inspiration to get you started, you might want to check out a few step-by-step tutorial videos on YouTube.
Buy Seasonally – The biggest thing to remember in order to keep the cost of your flower arrangements down is that you want to buy flowers that are in season during your party. Flowers such as tulips, lilies, peonies and hydrangeas are spring blooms, while sunflowers, daisies and orchids are in season during the summer. Roses, daffodils and hyacinths are in season during the winter and fall months.
Choose Big Blooms – Another excellent tip that can help you cut the cost of your floral arrangements is to pick large blooms. The larger the bloom, the fewer you’ll need to fill the space of your arrangements. Chyrsanthemums, peonies, hydrangeas, lotuses and sunflowers are all large blooms that will look fabulous in your arrangements.
Consider Alternatives – Many girls have their hearts set on using a particular flower such as the peony in their floral arrangements, but these type of stems can be expensive. If you want to have the same look without breaking the bank, you should consider alternatives that look similar. For example, garden roses and ranunculus are exceptional alternatives to peonies.
Use Fillers – Many brides and quinceañeras find that they save a great deal of money if they add lots of filler to their floral arrangements. You can use all kinds of things including branches, candles, rocks, beads, or green foliage like moss to fill in the extra space of your arrangements.
