Hosting a formal event usually ends up being more expensive, and the flowers for such an event will prove to be no exception. Formal events are often accented by flowers such as roses, orchids, and calla lilies in clear glass, crystal, or metal containers. An arrangement of only one or two types of flowers in a simple design will lend itself well to a formal occasion. If you have a tight budget but you love those all-rose centerpieces, think about adding some greenery (as pictured in the photo below). Pretty lemon leaf tips are a perfect accent to the roses, that way they will still look full but you will use fewer flowers.

An all calla lily bouquet is simple but elegant, and works well for a formal wedding:
