Save on wedding flowers by mixing faux and fresh flowers for your wedding day
Every love story is unique, and Casey and Casey's journey to their happily ever after is no exception. These two lovebirds found each other in the digital age of dating, and little did they know, that their shared first name would represent the beautiful balance they bring to each other's lives. As they embarked on their wedding planning adventure, Casey was faced with the challenge of finding the perfect wedding flowers to complement their venue. In her search, she stumbled upon Something Borrowed Blooms and decided to incorporate stunning faux floral collections into her big day, along with fresh blooms.
Let's delve into the story of how Casey created her dream wedding by mixing premium silk flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms with fresh flowers.
When it came to selecting a wedding flower vendor, Casey had a clear vision. She wanted florals that would complement her venue's romantic, warm palette, and she had a particular fondness for flower garlands. However, initial quotes from traditional fresh florists left her worried that her vision might be out of reach.
It was during these moments of uncertainty that she discovered Something Borrowed Blooms, a game-changer that reignited her excitement for the wedding planning process. The rent & return faux floral options provided her with the elaborate florals of her dreams, while still fitting comfortably into her budget. Casey's heart was set on the Nina Collection the moment she laid eyes on it. The collection's color palette exuded a romantic, boho charm that perfectly matched her venue's ambiance. The warm and dreamy colors of the Nina garlands made them an ideal fit for her wedding decor.
Casey covered her circular wedding arch in Nina Garlands and lined her aisle with the same lush arrangements. She decided to incorporate real flowers for her personal flowers such as bouquets, boutonnieres, and cake decorations. By showing her fresh florist the Nina Collection, her florist was able to select fresh flowers to coordinate seamlessly. The mix of fresh and faux flowers throughout the ceremony blended perfectly and helped the couple stay within their overall budget, without sacrificing on florals.
Casey simply relocated all of the ceremony florals to the reception which also helped to keep costs low. The gorgeous ceremony arch was moved behind the wedding party table which was the perfect way to repurpose this gorgeous installation for the reception. The tables were lined with floral garland and accented with Grand Centerpieces for a bit of height variation. Tulip Candlesticks were added for a little bit of ambiance and the perfect tablescape was complete.
