- Wedding: July 2012
When it came to budgeting for my July 2012 wedding, it quickly became apparent that spending beaucoup bucks on fresh flower arrangements wasn’t one of my priorities. I was happy with the though of using faux flowers or coming up with another bouquet ideas. After tossing around ideas for other kinds of bouquets (the brooch bouquets, fabric roses; etc) I decided to go with fake ones.
I posted last week about a coupon code available for afloral.com -I ordered several different bunches of flowers from them, spending a total of $72.70 (including shipping).
I used coupon code FLOWER at checkout to save 10% (My actual flower total was $62.80)
I ordered 12 bunches total, and when they arrived (fast!!) I couldn’t help but pull them all apart to assemble my 6 BM bouquets and of course, mine too! Here’s what I came up with:
maid of honor:
4 other bridesmaids:
It only took me about 2 hours to do these (I’ll be honest, I was watching the first Sex and the City movie at the same time, and I kept stopping to watch certain parts lol)
All in all, these bouquets ended up costing me $13.95 each, including the floral tape, ribbon and pins I used to wrap them with!! (They aren’t wrapped yet, though)
And, its one more thing checked off my to-do list, with 9 months to go!
