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.
