Behind the Scenes of Nash Blast 2022

Premium silk flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms ‘wow’ guests at David’s Bridal event

Our team hit the road this fall to participate in the largest bachelorette party of all time - David’s Bridal’s First-Annual NashBlast. Hosted in Bachelorette capital of the world, Nashville, TN, the event took place at the Viralish House hosted by TV’s Kaitlyn Bristowe with an exclusive limited edition collaboration with DanielXDiamond.

When the David’s Bridal team reached out to us with interest in collaborating, we were immediately intrigued. We’re always open to showcasing our premium silk wedding flowers and the trip to Nashville was an added bonus. The team envisioned an over-the-top floral display to compliment their high-contrast color palette of black, white, silver, and hot pink. And we knew how to accomplish just that!

The Vision

Our creative director tackled the design project in such a fun way. She thoughtfully curated a combination of three complementary floral collections and introduced them separately into three phases of the party - The front entry, indoors, and outdoors space. As guests progressed throughout the party, she envisioned the florals mimicking the tone.

Featured collections included The Audrey Collection to welcome guests at the front entry with a clean and polished look. The Gemma Collection inside the party for a bold and impactful statement. And finally, The Kinsley Collection outdoors where the heart of the party took place for a fun and playful vibe.

The Front Entry


Audrey garland and centerpieces scoured the grand staircase approaching the mansion's double doors, which made for the perfect area to tie in a fun balloon arch! Our team started by placing Audrey Grand Centerpieces on each step. From there, they continued intertwining the lush and full Audrey garland throughout the centerpieces. Take a look at the complete install, isn’t she dreamy?


Upon entry, guests were welcomed with charcuterie and a plethora of hors d’oeuvres. The entire spread was accented with bright and bold bougainvillea from our Gemma Collection. But it didn’t stop there, Our Gemma collection was the main focal point for a selfie mirror as well. 

The installment started with our team attaching one Gemma garland to the bottom of the mirror with command hooks. They placed a Gemma grand centerpiece on the ground right next to the mirror. To create the waterfall look, our team connected garlands up the mirror and wrapped them around the base of the grand centerpieces. This resulted in a super fun selfie space for guests to capture beautiful photos.

Spade & Sparrows, Kaitlyn Bristowe’s signature wine brand, as well as goodies from Dew Edit, her brand for hair scrunchies and accessories were displayed throughout the outside area. Of course, we added floral elements to make it fun and festive! The scrunchie display was accented with Kinsley garland draping down the sides for an added floral element.

Flanking each side of the bar with Kinsley Grand centerpiece made for an impactful burst of color. We added in our Pink Plume Sprays for some added texture and height. And who doesn’t love feathers!?

The Outcome

We couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. We may be a little biased, but we think the florals stole the show! Completing this install with fresh florals would have taken quite the budget - think like, tens of thousands of dollars! But with premium silk florals from Something Borrowed Blooms this over-the-top, Instagram-worthy floral display was affordable and easy to assemble. If you're looking for high-impact florals for a wedding or any event, look no further. This event is proof that Something Borrowed Blooms is the answer.

High School Sweethearts Tie the Knot with Stunning Silk Wedding Flowers

Brianna and Steven share all the details of their wedding flower experience with Something Borrowed Blooms.


True love always finds a way, and that’s especially true for friends turned lovers; Brianna and Steven! The couple celebrated their special day with family and friends along with their two beautiful children by their side. From the venue to the flowers, the day was everything Brianna wanted and more.

Keep reading to find out how SBBlooms Bride, Brianna, styled the wedding of her dreams using the bold and beautiful Gemma Collection.

Price, convenience, and sustainability were the most important factors in a wedding flower vendor for the couple. 

“We of course had a budget to stick to, but at the same time, I didn’t want to sacrifice the vision I had for the wedding, with florals being a huge part of it. I wanted affordability, beautiful flowers, and the ability to repurpose them from the ceremony to reception - all of which we got from SBBlooms.”

It's no secret fresh wedding flowers are a considerable expense. And unfortunately for couples planning during the wedding boom, the price increase driven by supply and demand can be too much to bear.

“I couldn’t imagine paying thousands of dollars for flowers that would inevitably die or be thrown out at the end of the night. It made sense to go with silk, and being able to rent them too was even better!  Additionally, I really wanted to line the ceremony aisle with flowers, and the only way I could do that affordably was with SBBlooms.”

With modern colorfulness in mind, the Gemma Collection was exactly what Brianna and Steven were looking for to create their wedding day vision. The Gemma Collection resembles the natural beauty of an Italian sunset with its warm gold and pink color palette. The collection features a beautiful mix of traditional florals and modern greenery including golden dutchess roses, trailing peach spray roses, cream English roses, along with lush bougainvillea, pittosporum, and magnolia leaves. 

“Although the more traditional, white bouquet is pretty, I wanted flowers that more uniquely represented me. The Gemma bridal bouquet made a statement but in such a naturally beautiful way. The warm gold and pink colors are the perfect combos for a modern and romantic wedding.” 

Bridesmaids used the Gemma Posies while the groomsmen sported the matching Gemma Boutonnieres, which accented the marigold bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen ties perfectly! 

We especially love how Brianna was able to repurpose flowers from the ceremony to the reception. Following the ceremony, the couple moved all Gemma garland and Grand Centerpieces to their sweetheart table and added classic candlesticks for an elevated look. Multi-purpose flowers pulling double duty is such a smart way to extend your floral budget.

Brianna also created the most adorable ring bear presentation. Jeremiah, the couple's 1-year-old son, was included in the wedding party procession as ring bearer in a floral adorned wagon accented with Olivia Garland.

Down to every detail, Brianna planned a beautiful and cohesive celebration of their love.

“Something Borrowed Blooms was amazing! The website was super user-friendly and the exclusive Facebook group so helpful during the planning process. The entire process from ordering to returning was as seamless as possible.”

Congratulations Briana and Steven! We’re so honored to have been a part of your special day!

Kelly & Hunters Dreamy Chapel Wedding

Wedding Flower Stylist, Kelly, shares her dream wedding along with all the floral details from Something Borrowed Blooms

Hello there, Kelly here! I wear many hats throughout the workday at Something Borrowed Blooms, but 1x1 floral styling is one of my favorite parts. If you’ve signed up for a Live Styling Session chances are we’ve met. I married the man of my dreams back in May at the cutest chapel in Louisiana, with our baby boy by our side. Day in and day out, I help couples with their wedding flower visions, but today I’m super excited to share mine with you.

Keep reading to learn how we pulled off the fairytale wedding of our dreams!

Hunter and I got engaged in December of 2020 and I placed my order for my wedding flowers with Something Borrowed Blooms the very next day! I secured the items I knew I absolutely needed (Bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, and a couple of garlands). And I knew how easy it was to edit my order after placing it, so I didn’t hesitate to start my order immediately.

In the midst of planning our big elaborate wedding, we were pleasantly surprised to find out we were expecting. At this time all wedding plans were put on hold until our bundle of joy arrived. Luckily the floral terms were very flexible, so I was able to push our event date out to a year until we made our final decision on a date. After deciding on May 14th, 2022 I requested for my event date to be changed in the system and added additional items for our new plans all through my customer portal. It was that easy!

Yes, Something Borrowed Blooms was an obvious no-brainer for me!  Every day, I see firsthand how cost-effective, stress-free, and convenient it is to rent your wedding flowers, so how could I go any other way!? If you’re on the fence about renting your wedding flowers. Do a little research and you’ll quickly see why this is the most cost-effective and beautiful wedding flower choice on the market.

I chose to mix two collections together to create the flowers of my dreams - The Bianca and The Wren Collections. The Bianca Garden Cut Bridal Bouquet was the perfect choice for my personal flowers, but I loved everything in The Wren Collection for everything else. I also loved the idea of mixing collections because it felt unique to me.

The Ceremony

For our ceremony, we welcomed our guests with a sign accented with two Wren aisle markers outside of the chapel. We stacked multiple Wren garlands on the altar for an overflowing orchid install. We used two Wren grand centerpieces on tall stands and two on short stands to create a stunning focal point for the exchange of our vows. We scattered black iron candlesticks on the altar behind us for a touch of ambiance, which was just dreamy! These paired perfectly with the ornate gold candlesticks provided by the venue. I often hear brides going back and forth on mixing metals, but I say go for it! It creates dimension and looks intentional when done right.

The Reception

We moved the grand centerpieces over to the reception area after the ceremony. I love how the flowers can serve double duty - again helping to keep the overall cost down! The grand centerpieces were placed on both sides of our greenery wall with a ‘Cheers’ neon sign, right in front of the dance floor. Our family-style dining tables were decorated with centerpieces from the Wren and Bianca Collection. Mix-matched china from Pure Vintage Rentals gave that chic-vintage look I was going for. We moved the black iron candlesticks from the altar to the table and scattered them throughout with the sunburst votives. We also moved the Wren garlands from the ceremony around the cake table and the sweetheart table, where Hunter and I shared our first meal together as husband and wife.

SBBlooms Tip: If you don’t have a wedding coordinator, task an eager-to-help friend or family member to move decor from the ceremony space to the reception. 

I wanted a budget-friendly dress that I felt beautiful and comfortable in, especially since having our baby back in October. After endless scrolling, I found the dress of my dreams on Showpo.com! The ‘Put a Ring on it’ dress fit me like a glove and only a couple hundred dollars. I paired it with pearl drop earrings and a studded veil from Etsy for an elegant and classic look. The Bianca Bridal bouquet (garden-cut) was the perfect touch to complete my bridal look.

Using the Wren cake cluster and Honeysilk ribbon helped create those Pinterest-worthy detail shots! The welcome sign was moved to the entrance of the tent where our audio guest book from Ring-a-Ding was stationed. Using this fun alternative to a traditional guest book will forever be something we cherish! All of our friends and family got to leave us voicemails and they were so fun to listen to.

At the end of the night, the provided return checklist was used to ensure everything was accounted for and packed back up. It was simple and beautiful in every way. And now I can personally attest to the savings, convenience, and sustainability that Something Borrowed Blooms offers.

I hope you all enjoyed my wedding details as much as I love seeing your wedding dreams come to life. If we’ve met in a styling session or via customer service, drop a note below to say Hi!

3 Trending Autumn & Winter Color Palettes

Top wedding flower and color combinations for the fall 2022 wedding season

A new wedding season is just around the corner and we couldn't be more excited to kick it off with some Pinterest-worthy wedding looks! So much so, that we just released our newest lookbook to inspire our SBBlooms Bride’s dream weddings – Introducing the Autumn/Winter 2022 Lookbook. A collection of gorgeous wedding flower and color palette combinations to inspire your wedding planning.

Take a look at our top three wedding color palettes for Autumn and Winter 2022.

Green hues have been trending for some time now, but there is an underutilized shade of green that’s taking the focal point. Olive is here just in time for the most popular wedding season. Shades of merlot and ice pink compliment olive green and complete this alluring combination. 

Our Stella Collection is taking center stage with the NEW Stella Bridal Bouquet (Garden-cut). A stunning new bridal bouquet addition made entirely of wine and marsala peonies and ranunculus. Hints of eucalyptus create dimension as the shape creates beautiful movement. The longer-than-average stems truly create the ‘fresh from the garden’ look. Add in bright pink florals like our Gemma garland to add a dramatic pop of color.

View more Alluring Olive inspiration and tips to recreate here!

We’re absolutely SWOONING over this warm and rich color palette! Including, the color of the year – veri peri, a soft mauve, and rust. Create an unexpected combination by pairing the palette with the delicate and classic Wren Collection. Take it to the next level with a mix of velvet and satin for a luxurious aesthetic. 

View more Vintage Velvets inspiration and tips to recreate here!

A wild mix of eucalyptus accented with antique beige and creamy linen is what makes our Taylor Collection our most versatile look. Choose a neutral color palette and accent with greenery for a classic wedding look for any season. Add a little elegance to any bridal bouquet by wrapping the stems with a Honeysilk ribbon. A beautiful lightweight ribbon with a crepe matte texture on one side and soft satin on the other.

Create a Custom Wedding Flower Look

Add your own personal touch to any Something Borrowed Blooms wedding floral arrangement

If you’ve been searching for wedding flowers, but haven’t come across your exact vision it's time to get creative. Adding your personal touch to your wedding flowers can help to create the cohesive wedding design you’re set on.  At Something Borrowed Blooms, we specialize in premium silk wedding flower collections, perfectly designed and curated for an affordable and cohesive wedding. With 20 premium silk floral collections to choose from, you’re bound to find one that matches your wedding vision. But we understand that sometimes even the best designs aren’t JUST right for your unique needs.  Although we don’t create custom arrangements, we can help you create the look you’ve been dreaming of with a few tweaks and additions of loose stems and garland

As we wrap up this busy Spring/Summer wedding season, we’re reflecting on some of our favorite additions to our beautiful premium silk arrangements. Our couples created some of the most beautiful settings this past season and we can’t help but share their great ideas!

Keep reading to be inspired by some of our favorite ‘custom’ Something Borrowed Blooms wedding flower looks.

Periwinkle and Blush

A soft and elegant pastel color palette has been a huge trend this past season! So much so, that it's safe to say our Millie Collection has been having a real MOMENT. Our Brides have been getting creative by adding other products to the arrangements to complete their vision.

Intertwining our Peony garland with the Millie garland will create a stunning garden-inspired look. With the help of some zip-ties and clippers, hanging this on a pergola or arch takes little to no time at all and can be used again at the reception!

SBBlooms Bride, Elizabeth added fresh light pink roses to her Mille Bridal Bouquet (Garden-cut) for some added color. But you can recreate this look by adding our Pink Rosebuds (Set of 12). Simply add the short stems to the bouquet and you’re good to go!

Dried Neutrals

Our Wren Collection embodies a modern and neutral color palette with subtle hints of color. Adding our Dried Cream, Tan, and Pink pampas grass bundles to this collection's arrangements can turn this contemporary floral collection into a boho-chick look in seconds.

Pair with warm colors like SBBlooms Bride Toni, for a Pinterest-worthy aesthetic.

Bold and Lush

One of our favorite mix-match duos is the Nina and Laurel Collections! For brides who want more greenery in the gorgeous sunset-inspired collection, we always recommend mixing in our ‘all-greenery’ collection, The Laurel. SBBlooms Bride, Diana decided to do a little DIY after receiving her blooms and attach the Laurel Posies on the back of the Nina Posies with handy zip-ties. This creates the illusion of the two collections as one, and adds the perfect amount of greenery!

After the ceremony, she detached the two posies from each bridesmaid and added the single posies in vases for her centerpieces… How genius?!

The possibilities are ENDLESS! Check out our collection of loose stems. You might find something that takes your wedding flower collection of choice over the top. Check out the video below to see a few combinations of our bridal bouquets and loose stems.

There are many ways to add your personal touch to our premium silk wedding flowers. Tell us in the comments how you plan on making your borrowed blooms your own for your big day!

3 Tips for a Budget-Friendly Elopement

Skip the big wedding and opt for an intimate ceremony with these three helpful tips

Following your engagement, the time will come to decide what kind of wedding you and your partner want. Do you want an elaborate wedding filled with hundreds of your closest family and friends? Or, would you rather have an intimate ceremony that includes the two of you in a place you find yourself dreaming about? If you answered yes to the second question, eloping is calling your name and you will NOT regret it.

Keep reading to learn our best tips and tricks for an elopement you’ll never forget!

1. Rent the Flowers

Just because the ‘guest list’ will be small, doesn’t mean you can’t have beautiful floral arrangements for your big day. A fresh flower bridal bouquet can cost anywhere between $175-$250 depending on the location and seasonality of the blooms. With Something Borrowed Blooms, you can RENT a premium silk bridal bouquet for just $65. Want to keep your bouquet? Purchase it and we’ll make one fresh, never before used, just for you!

Showcase the Bridal bouquet in your bedroom or purchase a watercolor keepsake to have and hold forever. 

2. Save on the Dress

Any white dress will do! Whether it’s short or long, the most important thing is that you feel beautiful in it. #SBBloomsBride Sara opted for a cute mini white dress for her courthouse wedding that she found on E-bay and paired with our bright and colorful Kinsley Bridal bouquet for a fun and eclectic look.

Following their intimate ceremony, they held a beautiful dinner reception with friends and family and decorated the space with coordinating Kinsley centerpieces to accent the tables.  

3. Pick your Dream Location

If a courthouse wedding isn’t your groove, choose a destination you and your partner have always wanted to visit. As a bonus, you’ll already be in your honeymoon spot once you say your “I do’s”!

There’s no better time to utilize our extended 10-day rental period than for a destination wedding. Our 10-day rental period allows couples to receive their blooms domestically and travel with them wherever they wish to exchange their vows. How cool? Couples can receive their wedding flowers in the comfort of their home with a 10-day period to travel freely across the country, or internationally, and back before returning your blooms. The convenience of a 10-day rental also alleviates the stress of finding a local FedEx when you’re in an unfamiliar city.

If you’re renting a bridal bouquet and boutonniere or a full assortment of products, you can’t beat the price of our rent and return wedding flowers!

With these helpful tips in mind, you’re ready to plan a perfect elopement on any budget!

Happy planning!

Introducing Wren

Our most luxurious silk wedding flower collection gets a brand-new name


Say hello to Wren, formerly known as our Wtoo Collection and one of our most popular collections. The Wren Collection is a statement in itself and embodies luxury and modernism all at an affordable price. So much so, we’ve decided to showcase the wedding of Kaitlin and her now-husband, Joe. With premium silk white orchids, blush, and beige duchess roses it’s no wonder this collection is a showstopper at every wedding!

Keep reading to find out how SBBlooms Bride; Kaitlin styled the wedding of her dreams using the Wren Collection.

When planning for wedding flowers, Kaitlin and Joe's number one priority was making sure they got the ‘most bang for their buck’. They wanted to keep costs at a minimum without sacrificing quality. Of course, this is where Something Borrowed Blooms came in!

“I rented with SBBlooms for several reasons. The prices were outstanding compared to the prices and quotes I saw for real florals and they look just as real. I also loved that SBBlooms also offers decor so I was able to get the gold stands I needed for my grand centerpieces and more right on their site which was convenient and made it a one-stop-shop. The customer service team is so great and helped me with any questions I had; they even offered their suggestions and ideas. Lastly, I love that they offer preview packs beforehand so I was able to see for myself how real the florals looked in advance. It was important that I knew what I'd have on my day and wouldn't be surprised in any way.“

With the couple’s elegant venue and cinnamon rose satin bridesmaid dresses from our friends at Revelry, the Wren Collection was a no-brainer. The Wren collection makes for a dramatic statement with its natural design of overflowing blooms. The collection includes a beautiful mix of white, cream, linen, and soft blush open rose varieties, paired with white and pale peach orchids. This premium silk orchid collection provides affordable luxury and design for all.

“I just felt like it had to be Wren! I know greenery is super popular, but I felt like this would be unique and give a nice, luxe touch. I also loved the asymmetrical look that they have.”

“I couldn't have asked for a better experience! As mentioned, I loved the look of my florals and got several compliments from guests; they looked amazing in all of our wedding pictures, too. The process was super stress-free, I received everything on time and it was so easy to simply ship them back after the wedding and see that they weren't going to waste. From start to finish, I knew I could rely on SBBlooms and that if I had any questions or concerns I could voice it with their team and get a helpful response. I definitely recommend them to anyone considering using them for their next wedding or event!”

Congratulations Kaitlin and Joe!

5 Sustainable Wedding Ideas

Keep the planet and your budget in mind with these sustainable wedding hacks

We’re celebrating earth day with helpful tips and tricks for an eco-friendly and sustainable wedding! If throwing a waste-free ceremony and reception is a top priority for you as a couple, then these 5 sustainable wedding ideas will make your planning a breeze all while reducing the carbon footprint on our beautiful planet.

From renting to recycling, keep reading to successfully throw a beautiful eco-friendly wedding!

1. Rent your Wedding Flowers

The ultimate sustainable choice on the wedding day - rent your wedding flowers! After all, flowers are arguably the biggest waste day of the wedding. Most flowers are just used for a few minutes for the ceremony or hours for the reception before being thrown out. 

At Something Borrowed Blooms, we specialize in premium silk wedding flowers that are both on-trend and on-budget. Our collections of beautiful silk wedding flowers are recycled and refreshed after each use to ensure the highest quality with each rental, with little to no waste. Flowers are passed on from one wedding to the next, providing for one of the most sustainable wedding flower options on the market. And these eco-friendly florals also include many other benefits including full price transparency; our prices are the same all year long, so you don’t have to pay a premium during holidays, and unlimited availability; our flowers are always in season no matter where or when you tie the knot!

SBBlooms also sources packaging from SFI-certified suppliers! This means our boxes are corrugated, 100% recyclable, and also reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

2. Second-hand Wedding Gowns

A one-time wear dress is the opposite of sustainable! If you’re looking for an alternative consider Still White, a company that allows brides to sell and buy gently used wedding dresses for a fraction of the cost of designer prices. With sustainability at the forefront of everything they do, Still White's mission is to invest in future-focused solutions, which is why they contribute 1% of their revenue for the good of the planet. Every wedding gown purchased reduces carbon emissions, water, and textile waste. And by re-wearing a fashion item, you give it a longer life and reduce its carbon footprint.

This tip is a win-win! Get your dream wedding dress at a discounted price and help the planet at the same time

3. 'Green' Party Favors

Let’s face it, party favors often end up in the trash creating unnecessary waste. But you can change that! Send your guests home with a cute potted plant or jar of honey like the ones below from White Confetti Box on Etsy to commemorate their time at your wedding! Not only is it eco-friendly, but who wouldn’t love a succulent or something sweet to add to their favorite treat. The best part? These party favors won’t go to waste!

Or, reach out to local bee farms and nurseries for these party favors and support your local businesses!

4. Plantable Wildflower Invitations

Leading up to the wedding date, there are so many events that traditionally require paper invites. Think engagement party, bridal shower, couple shower, bachelorette/bachelor party, rehearsal dinner, save the dates, and finally the wedding invite. So much paper, all to end up in the trash!

Consider using plantable wildflower invitations like the ones below from My Eco Designs on Etsy! Instead of your guests tossing the invites in the trash, provide them with an eco-friendly option to plant their invitations and grow wildflowers at the same time by using quality recycled seed paper. 

5. Create a Wedding Website

Want to go completely paperless? Wedding websites have been increasingly popular within the past few years. With our lives grounded by technology and our digital devices, it just makes sense for these important events to sync! Zola offers free wedding websites that provide customization and online RSVP

What better way to showcase your entire wedding experience on a personalized website!

There are so many ways to incorporate more sustainable choices for your wedding. Choose a few that best suit your plans for a beautiful wedding day and take pride in conserving mother nature’s resources. 

Being eco-conscious is one of our top priorities at Something Borrowed Blooms. We are committed to providing couples with a more sustainable & eco-friendly alternative for wedding flowers. With that being said, we love taking a part in spreading the word on all eco-friendly wedding day options.

Happy Earth Day from all of us here at SBBlooms! Tell us, what are some ways you’re keeping sustainability in mind on your wedding day?

How to Create the Perfect Wedding Ceremony Space

Recreate these three popular wedding ceremony flowers with ease.

By now, you’ve selected your ceremony location and most likely have envisioned your vows taking place in a specific spot. Since this will be one of the most photographed scenes from your wedding, it’s now time to put some focus on elevating the space with beautiful florals.

Keep reading to be inspired by the most sought after wedding ceremony spaces that can be recreated with premium silk flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms.

Ground Arch 

Since releasing our Spring 2022 Lookbook, #SBBloomsBrides have been obsessed over the featured ground arch using our newest Bianca Collection. With the luscious pampas grass and beautiful blown-out duchess roses and ranunculus, it’s easy to see why brides are dying to recreate this look for their ceremony space.

With a little creativity and DIY, the ground arch can be achieved in as little as 20 minutes by using large centerpieces and grand centerpieces, along with garlands from any collection! Start by placing the 4-6 grand centerpieces at the back and curve them towards the front. Add in 6-8 large centerpieces to create the arch and add 4-6 garlands on the ground to hide the centerpiece vases and finish off the look. Consider adding small centerpieces to help cover the gaps and create a seamless look. Voila! A beautiful focal point for you and your fiance to say ‘I do’.

This look would take a fresh florist hours to create and could easily cost $1,500+. But achieving this look with pre-arranged premium silk flowers takes a matter of minutes and a few hundred dollars.

SBBlooms Tip: Reuse the garland and various sized centerpieces at your reception to save on cost!

Trailing Arch

A true Pinterest-worthy setup! We’ve received lots of design questions on how to create our grand opening and Jane Collection install. Using our floral garland and grand centerpieces, you too can create this gorgeous trailing arch too!

Place two grid walls or similar structures to fit your style on either side of the ceremony spot. Start by placing one grand centerpiece on the ground, on the outer side of each wall. Next, zip-tie the garland at the inner corner of the grid wall and work your way down diagonally. Adding more garland as you go down creates a fuller look. Once you reach the bottom, wrap the garland around the vase of the grand centerpieces to hide the vase. This creates an emerging floral design. Repeat on the opposite side and you’re done!

Minimalist Floral Altar 

This ceremony design is an SBBlooms favorite! If you’re looking for an easy and simple way to elevate your ceremony space, look no further than our grand centerpieces and stands paired together. We recommend two tall and two short stands with grand centerpieces on top of each.

Place two stands on each side of the ceremony space and stagger one slightly forward and the other slightly back to create a stunning look with depth and interest.

How are you designing your ceremony space with SBBlooms? Tell us in the comments below.
