One of the easiest ways to save money is to purchase your wedding flowers by season. Choosing spring wedding flowers for your fall wedding is a recipe for a blown up budget. If you absolutely must have peonies at your winter wedding, be prepared to pay triple for them or consider moving your wedding date to the spring/early summer.
