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! 

“SBBlooms really exceeded my expectations of what a rental wedding flower vendor could provide. 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.”

Casey's wedding planning experience, enriched by Something Borrowed Blooms, showcases the magic of combining faux and fresh flowers to create a dream wedding.

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?

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.

And that will probably leave you questioning why fresh flowers were your first decision anyway.

2. Navigating Last-Minute Changes with Elegance

Their wide selection of flower arrangements ensures you'll find the perfect blooms to match your new vision and needs, without the stress of worrying about a tight timeline. Plus, with flowers delivered directly to your doorstep three days before the event pre-assembled and ready to shine, you'll have ample time to concentrate on the more important things, like being in the moment and enjoying this special time with family and friends.

3. Embrace Procrastination's Silver Lining

Let's face it, life can get busy, and sometimes procrastination gets the best of us. Maybe you were overwhelmed with wedding flowers and didn’t know where to start, or perhaps you didn’t have the time to dedicate to a fresh florist. Whatever the reason, don't let your last-minute planning situation dampen your wedding spirits. Something Borrowed Blooms takes the rush out of last-minute flower shopping. Their easy-to-use website makes it a breeze to browse, select, and order the flowers you need for your big day. And since their flowers are available for rent, you won't be left with buyer's remorse when flowers typically get thrown in the trash at the end of the event.

Breaking the Fresh Flower Wedding Tradition

Why Modern Couples are Renting their Wedding Flowers


Weddings are highly decorated events, often accented with lavish flowers and decorations. In fact, it’s hard to imagine a wedding celebration without flowers. As the costs of weddings continue to rise, we’ve seen a shift in behavior. Overall, more couples are looking for practical alternatives for the wedding date, saving both time and money. And that’s where rent and return wedding flowers come in.

Follow along as we explain why modern couples are choosing to rent their wedding flowers instead of following the traditional route of fresh.

Cost Savings:

Weddings can be expensive, and fresh flowers can take up a lot of your budget. That’s why many couples are looking for alternatives to fresh flowers, and maybe you should too! If fresh flowers aren’t high on the list of ‘must-haves’ for your wedding day, consider premium silk flowers, which will save you thousands of dollars in your overall budget. Take the savings to the bottom line or allocate to other areas in your wedding that are more important to you, like the dress, videographer, or your dream honeymoon!

An average wedding order with SBBlooms is around $500, compared to the national average of $3,000. That’s over 70% in savings!


Today’s couples also want the easiest wedding planning experience. With Something Borrowed Blooms, we make planning for your wedding flowers not only stress-free but fun! Join a community of over 6k past, future, and present brides in our exclusive Facebook group. There, you can sign up for a Live Styling Session to meet with one of our Blooms Stylists. Our trained bloom professionals are here to help you visualize your special day!

Placing an order for wedding flowers can be overwhelming, but we make it easy. Preview your exact florals online with peace of mind. Because our flowers are faux, we guarantee what you see is what you get, without the substitutions or unknowns associated with fresh flowers! Want to take it a step further? You can even preview our blooms in person before the wedding date by placing an order for a preview pack. With a preview pack, you can sample two arrangements for four days and receive $20 in rewards points to put towards your wedding order. Once you’ve fallen in love, add your wanted items to the cart and continue through the checkout process. You have the freedom to make edits to your order in your customer portal (Psst. you can’t do that with a fresh florist!).


Today’s couples are more conscious than ever about our planet and the way we care for it. This means they take into consideration every aspect of their wedding and how it affects our environment. For any couple keeping sustainability in mind, renting your wedding flowers with Something Borrowed Blooms is the obvious choice!

We have over sixteen collections of beautiful silk wedding flowers that are recycled and refreshed after each use to ensure the highest quality. Flowers are passed on from one wedding to the next, providing 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!

So why are modern couples renting their wedding flowers? Because today's couple keeps cost-savings, convenience, and sustainability in mind when planning for the most important day of their lives.

We wanted Morgan to see and feel our premium silk blooms in person before coming to a decision about her wedding flowers, so we arranged a preview pack, with samples from the Jane Collection. Needless to say, she fell in love with the quality and overall design!

Morgan tied the flowers in perfectly with her wardrobe selections. Bridesmaids wore Eucalyptus green chiffon dresses in different styles that perfectly matched the Jane Bridesmaids Bouquets for “just an elegant, clean vibe”, Morgan says. Stone and his Groomsmen sported black suits with emerald green ties accented with a Jane Boutonniere (Rosebud) to coordinate with the all-green and white look.


The Ceremony

The couple said their ‘I do’s’ in the backyard of the gorgeous estate with around 200 of their closest family and friends. Morgan's grandfather walked her down an aisle lined with lush Jane Aisle Markers and white rose petals.

Our team created a gorgeous altar space for the wedding that included two descending floral structures flanking the archway. To create this look, we utilized tall and short gold stands wrapped in Jane Garland and Spiral seeded eucalyptus garlands for filler. Jane Grand Centerpieces were placed at the base of the installation, as well as the top of the short stands to top it off. Loose stems such as our needle nose eucalyptus and eucalyptus spray were scattered throughout to fill any gaps for a cohesive floral moment.

The Reception

Jane large centerpieces and grand centerpieces on gold short stands accented the dining tables throughout the space for eye-catching height variation. Twinkling gold glass votives were also displayed for a bit of ambiance to light the night.

Our main focus areas for the reception space were the sweetheart table and mantle installations. The sweetheart table was easy to decorate with Jane Garland, as we simply placed it to spill off the table. On each end of the table, gold Tulip Candlesticks elevated the look for the couple's first meal together. In the corner of the setup, two Gold jugs were ready for Morgan to display her beautiful Bridal bouquet.


The Review

Morgan had the sweetest words to say about her entire experience with Something Borrowed Blooms!

“I truly cannot express how incredible the SBBlooms team is. Working with them was an absolute dream. The only hard part of the process was deciding which florals I wanted - they had so many jaw-dropping options that I just couldn't decide. One part that is overlooked is the fact that I received them by mail the week of the wedding - it's such a relief when the floral team you're working with sends you your flower arrangements early to make sure everything is there, so you have one less thing to worry about on your big day. Speaking of less stress - how about us not having to worry about our flowers wilting during the heat? There was no need to stress about refrigerating flowers and finding the space to store them because they are silk flowers.

I was in complete shock once I saw the setup! From the centerpieces at the reception to bridal party bouquets,  and boutonnieres every detail in between, the SBBlooms team made my dream wedding come to life! I couldn't get over the fireplace arrangements and the entire setup of the ceremony. I wish I had another wedding so I can experience this all over again!”

We were so honored to be the sole floral provider for Morgan & Stone’s wedding. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Burleson! Thank you for choosing Something Borrowed Blooms for your special day!
