Thursday Thoughts: Wedding Flowers

With all the craziness over the summer, I haven't had much time to do anything and even less time to do anything wedding-related.  Now that things are slowly calming down, I'm finally able to get back to planning our wedding and while I was chatting with my cousin the other day, the topic of flowers came up.

If you know me, you know that I love a good bargain and would always rather do it myself than dish out some skrilla to someone else.  Wedding flowers, however, are not something that I can do myself.  First off, I seem to have two black thumbs.  And secondly, even if I were able to grow my own flowers, I'd need a field full of different flowers to create the look I'd want.  And lastly, how the hell do I put them all together without it looking like I just picked a few flowers out of the ground and just tied them all together?

Well, as luck would have it, I stumbled upon a genius solution to all our DIY wedding flower woes:  Bloominous!!  The idea is simple:  you find the arrangements that you like and Bloominous ships you everything you need to make it happen.  Simple, right?

They have the cutest collections (my favorite is the Party Pop but the Bohemian Desert is a close second), the prices are all under $100, and they provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to arrange everything to make it look exactly how it is in the pictures!  It's like finding a flower arrangement on Pinterest and then instead of asking a florist to put it together or going out to different shops to find the right supplies to make it yourself, it all comes directly to your doorstep.

So, if some time in the near future you see me post photos that look similar to this one:

You know exactly where it came from.  Seriously though, I think I'd order one of those centerpieces just to have it on my desk.

Where'd you get your wedding flowers from?  Are you a bride on a budget?  Would it be weird to have a wedding centerpiece on my desk at work?


  1. For whatever reason I thought you were married! YAY for weddings! When is it? The flowers are gorg :)

  2. Girl, I am with Krystal; I thought you were married. Guess there is still time to join the celebration. When is your wedding? I seriously love that idea for the flowers! They are frikken beautiful! Love it all!

  3. oops i 3rd the thought you were married. we suck clearly.
    gorgeous flowers! i have 2 black thumbs as well, thankfully my best friend and MOH was amazing and she made them out of the flowers in her backyard! so for free :)

  4. I must be living in a hole because I didn't know you were engaged!!!!!!!! Congrats! (yes, suckage to all of us commenters so far, except I didn't think you were married yet, except you have a kid so I don't know why I didn't think you were married.....I must be progressive, ha!). Anywho, love the DIY arrangements idea! Though it means you might have to do them the night before so they look still look great in the morning. Tip, don't put them in a fridge that's too cold or they'll freeze to death.I love how colorful and soft this arrangement is but also love the succulents!

  5. Hi Duckie! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it! I think it's a great idea to try to assemble your own wedding flowers! I did try myself and it was a mess! I think it's perfectly FINE to have wedding centerpiece at your desk! It's pretty, smells nice, and you can always say your fiance got them for you! :)


  6. That website is pretty awesome! I love your choices! I have a black thumb as well...good luck! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  7. Haha! I love it! Do you know how many people steal centerpieces at my family's events?! It's nuts! But even beautiful wedding centerpieces have been known to land on office desks :)

    keep up with the planning I say!
