1. Budget & Priorities

Your wedding budget should reflect the things that are most important to you, like capturing fleeting moments or throwing an unforgettable party for your friends and family. From the bridal bouquet to outfitting your wedding party in blooms to centerpieces on every table, wedding florals can cost a pretty penny. Trying to keep a tight budget without sacrificing style? Silk flowers by Something Borrowed Blooms cost a fraction of the rate of real flowers and the available collections are just as gorgeous and statement-making as live blooms.

2. Expectation = Reality

When your wedding flowers arrive on your big day, they should look exactly like you imagined and discussed with your florist! Co-founder of Something Borrowed Blooms, Lauren Bercier, was inspired to start the company after her own wedding florals turned up totally different than what her florist had promised. Renting silk flowers for your wedding from Something Borrowed Blooms ensures that you know exactly what your florals will look like, meaning you have one less thing to worry about when you should be enjoying tying the knot!

3. Sustainability

When it comes to millennial weddings, we’re hearing more and more that couples are prioritizing sustainable choices in their wedding planning process. If the idea of buying a bunch of flowers to be used for a single occasion makes you stress over the inevitable waste, renting silk blooms for your wedding can be a really great alternative. Not only are the florals not being wasted after your sparkler send-off, but the entire model of renting through Something Borrowed Blooms is based in upholding sustainability and re-using the same stunning pieces again and again.
