Are you ready for wedding season? No, we’re not crazy! Other than June, September is the most popular month to get married – and it’s fast approaching! For almost every couple, one of the most stressful factors in the wedding planning process is sticking to a predetermined budget. Tradition dictates that flower arrangements have to take up a big chunk of your wedding spending, but it doesn’t have to be that way, because DIY-ing your flowers can save you bucket loads! An added bonus of creating your DIY floral arrangements on a smaller budget? There will be more room left over for fun things like food, drinks, and music. This week, the Blooms Save, Don’t Splurge is going to break down a beautiful peony, hydrangea, and amaranthus bouquet featured on The Knot, and give you ways to splurge, save, or save even more!
Thinking of a tropical theme for you wedding? This boutonniere featuring blushing bride protea and dagger fern will bring the beauty of the rainforest straight to your ceremony!
Peonies are a bride favorite, and it’s not uncommon to see the ruffled blooms in soft romantic arrangements. But with summer still in full swing, we wanted to design a summer peony bouquet that was bursting with colors and texture. So we paired tall stems of blue delphinium with coral charm peonies, and surrounded them with bright yellow fillers like solidago, yarrow and our favorite, craspedia billy balls! This is the perfect bouquet for a summer outdoor wedding and the bride who wants to stand out!
