A Beautiful + Inexpensive Way to Have Fresh Flowers for Your Wedding

This blog post is inspired by and made possible by my lovely best friend Kayla Eddlestone! For her wedding, she wanted fresh flowers for her bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets but she didn’t want to have to budget hundreds (or sometimes even thousands) of dollars to do so. And like I said in my speech at her celebratory dinner, Kayla knows what she wants and she goes after it.

In this case, she wanted white roses, baby’s breath eucalyptus, and other greenery. She placed an order through Sam’s Club ahead of time, and they arrived 2 days before the wedding. The day before the wedding is when me, Kayla, and our other best friend, Megan, put all of the bouquets together.

Kayla was slightly stressed because she thought putting together the bouquets would take a very long time, but she forgot how awesomely creative and efficient her best friends were *hair flip*.

We needed to make 8 bridesmaids bouquets, 1 maid of honor bouquet, 1 bridal bouquet, and a toss bouquet. Here’s a list of the items we used during this process:

For the bridesmaids bouquets we used baby’s breath, 3 roses, and assorted greenery. For the maid of honor bouquet we did the same combination only more of it so it would be slightly larger. Kayla’s bridal bouquet was comprised mostly of eucalyptus and roses, and the toss bouquet was just a small bunch of baby’s breath. We gathered and arranged the flowers and greenery together, and when we were satisfied, we held them together with the floral wire and floral tape wrapped around the stems.  We kept each bouquet in its own vase with a little bit of water in it. The morning of the wedding we wrapped them with the ribbon and secured it with 2 pins each.

As you can see in the pictures, they came out beautifully! They were just as Kayla imagined they would be. And guess what?! We only used half of the flowers and greenery she ordered. She spent about $200 on her order, so really it only took about $100 worth of flowers and greenery to make everything we made. It also took us under two hours to make them all. This was a Pinterest win if I’ve ever seen one!

So if you’re on a small budget, want to have fresh flowers for your wedding, and are even a little bit crafty, then definitely try this method! If you’re interested in making your own fresh flower bouquets feel free to ask us any questions you have.

I am so shy and awkward so I was nervous to have professional pictures done. But they make you feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Saying they are amazing is an understatement. I will always go to them for photography. Dylan and Danielle and truly the best.

Three Twenty Studio is the best!!! They have done my engagements, graduation, and wedding pictures.

What was MOST important to me was to connect with each of my vendors. They were so accommodating and thorough with anything I wanted or with any hesitation or fear I had for my day. I’m over the moon with my pictures and my film! Thank you so much. I’ll cherish this forever!

I just felt an instant connection on the phone with Dylan and I knew they were the right decision.
