Welcome to the last post of the Budget Series… I know, it’s sad. So far we have covered Vintage, Romantic Garden, Wildflower and Modern themes, and today, we give you Rustic! If there are any other themes you would like to see, we may be able to create a few more Budget Series inspirations, but you’ll have to let me know in the comments below! After you learn how to create this Rustic Wedding, of course…
With this Rustic Inspiration you can create a Bridal Bouquet, 2 Bridesmaids Bouquets, 2 Mini Bouquets, 5 Boutonnieres, and 8 Centerpieces all for $360 (with a 5% discount. Just Ask!) That’s a lot of arrangements for not a lot of money! 🙂
Wholesale Flowers to order:
The Hydrangea gives you a lot of bang for your buck with its large head size, and it’s a beautiful focal flower that is available in dozens of colors. Using a focal flower like the Hydrangea, together with the Rustic Combo Box lets you create full and lush bouquets and arrangements. To make the Bridal Bouquet you will use 3 Hydrangeas, 7 Scabiosa Pods, 1 bunch Silver Brunia, and 1/2 bunch Dusty Miller.
To create 2 Bridesmaids Bouquets you will use 1 Hydrangea and 5 Scabiosa Pods in each one. Violet’s Tip is to, “Use plaid or grosgrain ribbon for a textured accent!”
Hydrangeas make an such an easy bouquet! To make 2 Mini Bouquets for the Moms, Junior Bridesmaids, or Flower Girls, use 1 Hydrangea and accent with Dusty Miller. So Easy and so Beautiful! 🙂
For 8 Rustic Centerpieces, Violet suggests using rectangular wooden or copper boxes/containers, such as this Wooden Planter found on Etsy (Check garage sales and flee markets to find them cheaper, or if you are super crafty, DIY!). Each centerpiece should include 2 Hydrangeas and a few clusters of Silver Brunia, then tuck in a few stems of Amaranthus and Bear Grass in among each one – they should each be different and NOT perfect or over done! You can embellish these with fun wooden or metal ‘farm’ treasures or even something as fun as indian corn or fresh beets, bok-choy or local wheat for a really rich textural effect. Have fun with it!
Well, there you have it! 5 Budget Friendly Wedding Flower Inspirations! If we missed a theme you would really like to see, then let me know in the comments below!
