AdvertisemenCarnations are one of the cheapest flowers you can buy. I've heard some people refer to them as tacky when it comes to weddings, but I think if you use them correctly, they can look absolutely gorgeous! Great way to save money on your flower budget.
Your bouquet is the most prominent place you can use them. They're very fluffy, so they'll give you a nice full bouquet. Mix them with other flowers or greenery to amp up the look.
You can also use carnations in your decorations. Anything from your ceremony to reception table centerpieces.
