Five budget-friendly alternatives to the wedding flower wall


Written by Katie Byrne


Want a wedding flower wall - but don't have the budget? Try these ideas instead...

 

If you love the idea of having a flower wall at your wedding - à la Kim and Kanye - but simply can't stretch your budget to make it a reality, fret not! We've found five beautiful ideas that will help you create the look you want for your celebration - and best of all, they won't break the bank! 

 

#1 For a gorgeously rustic approach, consider this.

 

 

Colourful cans of flowers will make a beautifully bright addition to a quirky-with-a-rustic-twist wedding. Just make sure the cans are firmly secured in order to avoid any catastrophes...! Image source.

 

 

#2 If you want a creative challenge, this is for you!

 

 

Gorgeous paper flowers in varying shades of white, ivory and cream will add a chic touch to your reception - enlist the help of some crafty friends to get the blooms made even quicker. Click here for the easy-peasy tutorial from Paper Blog.

 

 

#3 Chalk at the ready...

 

 

Use a chalkboard sheet to create a floral feast for the eyes - you might not be able to afford (or source!) the blooms you want for your day, but you can certainly draw them! Image source

 

 

#4 Want a more understated look? You'll love this idea...

 

 

Wallpapering a pretty floral print onto a board can make a delightful alternative to the real-bloom wall. Simply ask a DIY store for free samples of your favourite papers and you should have enough to create your wall! Image source.

 

 

#5 Finally... Try this if you want real blooms but have a small budget 

 

 

Talk to your florist about positioning flowers stem-to-stem across the wall, held in place by tape. If the thought of watching your flowers wilt throughout the day doesn't appeal, try silk or plastic variations instead. Image source.
