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!
