Dawn & Dave’s Monterey Magic

Couple creates a Pinterest-worthy wedding with silk wedding flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms


Dawn Ethel's love story began with chance encounters through mutual friends. Reconnecting with old pals led her to her now-husband's apartment, where she spent time even before meeting him. Despite his initial serious demeanor, Dawn discovered the hidden goofball behind the stoic facade. Their love story was unconventional, filled with laughter and surprises, leading to a gorgeous October wedding.

Keep reading to learn more about the stunning details of Dawn and Dave’s wedding day!

The Planning

The wedding planning journey started with the couple's decision to tie the knot in picturesque Monterey, CA. Post-covid wedding planning conditions created limited vendor availability and the added complexity of planning a destination wedding without a coordinator. Securing the perfect venue within budget was the first milestone that put the couples on track for the wedding of their dreams. Drawing inspiration from Instagram tags of weddings at the same venue, Dawn embarked on a research trip, turning her vacation into meticulous wedding planning.

The Blooms

Choosing the right floral vendor was a critical decision for Dawn. Quality, reliability, and pricing were non-negotiable factors when selecting. Disappointments with traditional florists ultimately led her to move forward with Something Borrowed Blooms. A friend of Dawn's was a bridesmaid in another wedding in which SBBlooms flowers and decor were used. Her friend's positive experience solidified her decision to move forward with the rent and return floral company!

The Gemma Collection immediately caught Dawn's eye, aligning perfectly with the vibrant colors she envisioned for her Monterey wedding. Local flowers like Bougainvilleas inspired her choice, and SBBlooms offered the advantage of renting premium silk arrangements with this vibrant stem without worrying about wilting blooms. The planning process may have been intense, but the Gemma Collection brought the essence of Monterey to life. Dawn captured this perfectly by walking down the aisle with the Gemma Bridal Bouquet (Bougainvillea)

Check out the Gemma Collection here.

The Details

While wedding planning, Dawn faced the challenge of visualizing all the details coming together, however, on day-of, all the details came together flawlessly. Tulip Candlesticks, initially thrown in to fill space, turned out to be a delightful surprise, elevating the overall look of her dining tables. Tables were lined with lush Gemma garland and Gemma Large centerpieces, adding variation to the reception space. Bridesmaids were dressed in mix-matched blue dresses that paired beautifully with the Gemma Bridesmaids' bouquets, while the groomsmen sported light blue suits accented with the Gemma Boutonnieres

Dawn's meticulous planning and attention to detail, coupled with SBBlooms' rentals, resulted in a wedding day filled with enchantment and visual appeal.

The Review

Dawn's overall experience with SBBlooms was nothing short of exceptional. Describing it as one of the best decisions she made for the wedding, SBBlooms helped tie the entire wedding design together seamlessly. The silk wedding flowers and decor left everyone impressed, with guests surprised to learn they weren’t traditional fresh flowers.

Dawn says that she would choose SBBlooms again, reflecting on the positive impact it had on her wedding day. Her Monterey magic was made complete with the vibrant and hassle-free blooms from Something Borrowed Blooms, turning her dream wedding into a beautiful reality.

Congratulations to Dawn and Dave, and we’re so honored to have been a part of your wedding day!

Pantone Perfection: Peach Fuzz Takes Center Stage

It's that time of the year when the prestigious Pantone Color Institute unveils its ‘Color of the Year’, and for 2024, the spotlight is on the charming and soft hue of Peach Fuzz. This delightful shade of warmth and serenity is making waves in the wedding world. At Something Borrowed Blooms, we are embracing this trend wholeheartedly, offering an array of exquisite floral arrangements that capture the essence of Peach Fuzz.

We’re all about providing your dream wedding flowers on your terms, and so there are no packages or minimums providing your full flexibility to build your own wedding flower assortment!

This new and unique cake trend is both simple and stunning. And it’s easy to create using our line of floral garlands, with posies, and loose stems for added height and dimension.

Affordable Elegance: Achieving a Stunning Wedding on a Budget

Something Borrowed Blooms' Bride stays true to her wedding flower budget with premium silk wedding flowers. 


Meet Mckenzie and Ervin, a couple whose love story began in high school but truly blossomed as they faced the challenges and joys of everyday life, sharing experiences in the service industry. Their journey from friends to life partners culminated in a wedding that defied conventions, showcasing the unique essence of their style, personalities, and priorities. 

In this blog post, we'll explore Something Borrowed Blooms' pivotal role in crafting of Mckenzie and Ervin's breathtaking wedding. What makes it even more remarkable is that this was accomplished while adhering to their modest floral budget of under $600!

Continue reading to discover how this SBBlooms Bride orchestrated a stunning wedding on a budget that is both achievable and beautiful.

The Planning

After the proposal, McKenzie took it upon herself to plan the entire wedding. A task that might seem overwhelming to some but armed with a clear vision and trusted recommendations from friends, she found the process surprisingly manageable.

When it came to choosing wedding flowers, McKenzie had her heart set on premium silk arrangements. Her only criteria were that they looked beautiful and authentic while keeping the planning process stress-free. Fortunately, her fantastic photographer introduced her to the concept of rent and return wedding flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms.

“My photographer raved about how beautiful the florals looked in person and how beautiful they photographed. That’s what really sold me! I also loved the convenience of SBBlooms and that you had the option to do local pick up or have them shipped to you the week of the wedding!”

Because the venue was already breathtaking, minimal decor and florals were needed. Therefore, the order only consisted of wedding flowers for the bridal party!

The Blooms

From the second McKenzie started exploring the wedding flower collections; she fell in love with the Nina Collection. This premium silk flower collection embodies the essence of a romantic Western sunset with its warm and dreamy color palette. It features a variety of terracotta and light pink open dutchess roses, dusty lavender, rust ranunculus, and dark plum apple blossom sprays arranged together beautifully. Textured with pampas grass and curly willow, this bohemian desert-inspired collection works well for any season. 

“The Nina collection is BEAUTIFUL! I knew I wanted colorful flowers because me and my bridesmaids were all wearing white. I wanted our florals to really stand out and the Nina collection had the perfect colors and tones to compliment my spring wedding!”

McKenzie styled her Bridal party in ivory luxe satin halter dresses from Show Me Your Mumu, accented with the Nina Bridesmaid Bouquets. This all-white look allowed the florals to really POP! We hope to see this trend continue through the 2024 wedding year. Ervin sported the Nina Boutonniere (ranunculus) that perfectly complimented his emerald green suit. The groomsmen played it neutral in tan suits accented with the Nina Boutonniere (pampas) for some variation.

The Review

“Wedding planning can be stressful! As a bride, you want everything to be beautiful and perfect & it’s very consuming. SBBlooms was a lifesaver in my wedding planning process because I knew it would be beautiful, and I didn’t have to stress about it. The customer service was phenomenal, and the flowers were absolutely beautiful! I would recommend SBBlooms to everyone!”

Mackenzie and Ervin’s wedding, adorned with the stunning blooms from Something Borrowed Blooms, is a testament to the idea that a beautiful wedding doesn't have to break the bank! With careful planning, a touch of creativity, and the right floral partner, couples can achieve a dream wedding without compromising on style or budget.

Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you so much for choosing Something Borrowed Blooms to be a part of your special day!

A Stylish Affair: Dri Buonocore's Wedding Day

TikTok wedding influencer rents premium silk flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms for wedding day


Sharing real Something Borrowed Blooms’ Couples on our Blog is one of our favorite topics. It’s a chance to give our followers insight into the entire wedding planning process, from the perspective of a fellow bride. From the early stages of planning to pulling all the wedding details together to fit their vision, each couple's story is unique. We’re thrilled to add Dri Buonocore and her now-husband, Matt’s, wedding day to the blog. Dri had a beautiful vision, and we’re so honored to have been part of her special day.

Keep reading to learn all the details about Dri and Matt's wedding day, from the initial planning to the Something Borrowed Blooms review.

The Planning:

In December 2020, Matt surprised Dri with a proposal at Renault Winery. From there, the wedding planning journey officially began! And true to post-COVID times, the engagement period was an extended one. Through the planning process, Dri started her own TikTok page, documenting and sharing her planning process and experiences with other brides. And of course, fellow brides fell in love with her! From her down-to-earth personality to her fashion advice and money-saving tips, Dri’s content was relatable and she quickly grew a following. For Dri, ordering a preview pack was her first experience with Something Borrowed Blooms, and it was a MUST-have for deciding which floral collection to go with.

“One of my favorite parts of wedding planning was getting SBBlooms preview packs. I was always pretty dead set on Wren, but of course, I had to confirm the decision. I saw Audrey, Millie, Eloise and Gemma. I loved them all and even assigned them to my future life events beyond the wedding. I had a long engagement and placed my order in advance – which, of course, led to me changing what I needed one million times. It was so easy to adjust my order online to accommodate my needs through my customer portal.”

Order a Preview Pack here to get started!

The Blooms:

Flowers are a crucial element of any wedding, but for Dri, managing her budget was equally important. She wanted to create a vision filled with beautiful florals but without breaking the bank. After considering various options, she decided to go with Something Borrowed Blooms, and here's why.

Quality: SBBlooms provided exceptional premium silk floral arrangements that exceeded Dri's expectations.

Peace of Mind: Dri knew exactly what her wedding flowers would look like, ensuring no day of surprises!

Eco-Friendly: Knowing how much waste is produced on the average wedding day, Dri felt relieved knowing she would help eliminate that factor for her special day.

Cost Savings: The total cost of their wedding order was a fraction of what she would have spent if she went with traditional fresh wedding flowers.

“For my guest count and desired amount of florals, I was looking at quotes ranging from 10k-25k. In typical florist fashion, it also had the caveat of “if I can source these flowers at the time.” I quickly ruled our traditional florals because I truly could not wrap my head around spending 10k+ on florals that would be tossed after a few hours and the amount of waste it would produce.”

For Dri, the Wren Collection was love at first sight. The collection perfectly matched her vision of traditional wedding florals with a chic modern twist. The soft whites, pinks, and the inclusion of orchids added a lively touch that set her wedding apart from the typical "all white" bridal florals.

The Bridal party carried the Wren Bridesmaid Bouquets, while dressed in light champagne satin dresses in various styles from Revelry. The Groomsmen wore traditional black tuxes while Matt, the groom, wore the Wren Boutonniere (Single Orchid).

The Reception was filled with various products from the Wren Collection. By renting her wedding flowers from SBBlooms, Dri was able to bring all of her ideas to life and then some, all while staying within her budget. She lined Wren Garlands across the mantle behind the sweetheart table for a picture-perfect backdrop. As a finishing touch, Dri lined the edge of the table with the bridal party’s Wren Bridesmaid Bouquets, which she was able to repurpose from ceremony to reception. Dri also decided to mix Wren Large Centerpieces and Wren Grand Centerpieces on Short Gold Stands on her tables.  

The Review:

Dri wholeheartedly recommends SBBlooms to every nearly-wed couple she knows, and her wedding guests couldn't stop complimenting the beautiful florals that added an extra layer of magic to her special day.

“A true bright spot of Something Borrowed Blooms is the team. Customer service was always quick to answer any questions I had via email, and ensured everything in my LARGE order got to me in perfect condition and on time.”

Ultimately, it's not just about the flowers or the decorations. It's about the love, the journey, and the memories created. Dri and Matt's wedding celebrated their unique story, filled with love, laughter, and beautiful florals. Congratulations from all of us here at Something Borrowed Blooms!

A Blooming Love Story with Casey and Casey

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.

The Blooms

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.

The Ceremony

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. 


The Reception

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. 

Tips for Mixing Faux and Fresh Flowers:

For brides considering a blend of faux and real flowers, Casey offers some valuable tips:

The Review

What made Casey decide to rent wedding flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms? It was the exceptional customer service that stood out to her!

From their SBB Insiders group to their YouTube tutorials, preview packs, and quick-responding customer service team, I can't tell you the number of hours I spent utilizing all of their resources. They truly made my wedding planning experience much easier, and I can't imagine what my wedding would have been like without SBBlooms.”

Last-Minute Wedding Flowers Made Easy with Something Borrowed Blooms

Tips for conquering your last-minute wedding flower needs with ease.


Planning a wedding is an exhilarating journey filled with joy, excitement and a fair share of surprises. Amidst all the careful planning, sometimes unexpected situations arise, leaving you with a need for last-minute solutions. One of the most vital elements of any wedding is the flowers. Whether you've faced a sudden cancellation from your florist, encountered last-minute changes, or simply found yourself caught in a time crunch due to procrastination, fret not! 

Something Borrowed Blooms has got you covered with their innovative rent and return wedding flower service, even if your big day is just around the corner.

1. When the Florist Cancels: Your Knight in Blooming Armor

Imagine everything going according to plan until the unthinkable happens – your florist cancels on you. Panic might set in, but don't worry. This is where Something Borrowed Blooms steps in to save the day. Their service allows you to rent stunning, high-quality silk flowers that look just as beautiful as fresh ones, and they can be ordered as close as 10 days before your event. Need them even sooner? Contact our customer service team at info@sbblooms.com, and we can make that happen!

You won't have to compromise on the aesthetic appeal of your wedding, and you'll have flowers bound to leave a lasting impression. Not to mention, you’ll be saving a pretty penny. These stunning silk blooms certainly mimic the real thing, but the price tag does not. You’ll save over 70% compared to your original fresh florist budget. And that will probably leave you questioning why fresh flowers were your first decision anyway.

2. Navigating Last-Minute Changes with Elegance

Wedding planning is a dynamic process, and sometimes unforeseen changes creep up at the last minute.
