The Flower Recipes

You can’t have a garden wedding without flowers, so our friends at have whipped up two flower recipes using beautiful blooms that won’t break the bank!

Carnations are a great choice for any bride who’s on a budget because they come in a wide range of colors and can create the appearance of a fuller, bigger bloom when bunched together. They paired these affordable stems with Peach Ghobi Roses and Spray Roses to bring in a little color. Eucalyptus is a great filler and looks super dreamy when paired with these blush blooms. The results are total garden wedding perfection, and both of these arrangements cost around $30!*

*Flower prices are subject to change, this is an estimate based on the average cost of those flowers in those specific quantities.

Tips for pulling off a Garden Wedding on a Budget


Blooms by the Box - Garden Wedding Inspiration

Play on the outdoor garden theme and let your ceremony space double as a reception area. You can even use the chairs from the ceremony as dining chairs if you time cocktail hour just right!


If your garden wedding is during the summer, try and position it near an area with shade or near an indoor area with air conditioning. Splurge for menus, programs, or place cards that have thicker stock so they can double as fans!


If your garden party is at night, check with local government to see if there are sound ordinances/is a curfew for that area


Floral arrangements should be placed in their spots no earlier than an hour prior to the beginning of an outdoor reception. Wilted flowers don’t promote the fun, romantic vibe associated with a garden party!



We hope you've found this helpful and inspiring in planning your own big day! For more cost-saving inspiration and flower ideas, visit our partners at Blooms by the Box! Stay tuned for our next installment in this series!
