Blooms on a Budget #01
The Budget Savvy Bride

Blooms on a Budget Logo

Hello, everyone! My name is Maddy Hague, and I write the nesting blog Somewhere Splendid, and am also a co-founder of the budget-conscious party and wedding DIY site Confetti Pop. My pal and former Nonpareil Magazine partner Jess asked me to cross-post a project I’ve been working on for my blog, thinking it may be of help to you all! My hope is that it will be incredibly inspiring and relevant for you all as you plan your florals for your big day.

Today, I’m bringing you a new series called “Blooms on a Budget.” I’ll be designing floral arrangements for $20 or less to help you put together your own floral decor without breaking the bank. In this series, I’ll be sourcing flowers from supermarkets, local flower shops, or floral markets rather than trade-only wholesale dealers in order to ensure the budgets are accurate and that it’s reasonable to assume you will have access to these flowers, as well. If I only use a portion of the bunch – say, half, or a quarter – that will be reflected in the final budget so that if you are estimating out the cost for multiples, the final price will be as close as possible. I may incorporate non-floral materials, in which case, those materials will also be included in the final cost. Vessels will not be included in the cost.

Let Jess and I know what you think! If you like what you see, I invite you to join me at my other projects, Confetti Pop and Somewhere Splendid- xo, Maddy

  1. What a great idea for a series! I did my own flowers for my wedding from supermarket blooms and had no idea what I was doing. This is so helpful for brides on a budget! Great first centerpiece!

    • Thanks! I think Maddy did a great job! That’s awesome that you took the DIY route for your own wedding- I’m sure it helped you save some money!

  2. I LOVE THIS!!!! Not only is the arrangement gorgeous – it’s so affordable. Plus, I’m loving the graphic used to show the flowers and their price. It’s a great design.

    • Thanks, Brenda! Maddy is a whiz when it comes to this stuff! Happy to have her sharing this series with our readers! :)
