This simply means getting the most from the flowers that you will be using. There really is no sense in getting separate flowers for the ceremony and the reception especially if the flowers you are using are gorgeous and you know would look good for a long time. Think of ways you can repurpose the flowers to be used in the ceremony for the reception.
The larger, the better
If you are strapped for cash, then you should consider getting large flowers over small ones. They may be more expensive but the good thing about large blooms is that you only need a few to complete an arrangement. Therefore, they actually save you more money.

You can also compensate the lack of flowers by using cylinders or vases of different heights. It is all about using ones imagination.
Sometimes, one is enough
Instead of using many different kinds of flowers in an arrangement, you can try using a single bloom. Sometimes, a single beautiful flower is enough and can make a stronger statement than a bunch of so-so blooms. Sample of flowers that you can display on its own are anemones, peonies and dahlias.
You don’t have to stick to the traditional way of arranging flowers. If you have a florist then what you can do is to challenge him or her by setting a budget and conveying to her the look that you want. If you are making your own flower arrangements, then try to think out of the box and look for inspiration away from the usual sources.
