Not to scare you or put any bad vibes out into the universe during your wedding planning journey, but finding dreamy wedding flowers isn’t as easy as seeing a pretty photo on a floral designer’s Insta feed, attending a follow up consultation, and saying “That! That’s what I want. And lots of them. Thanks.” There is a whole process that needs to transpire and even when things go as well as can be expected , there can still be hang ups on the day that begins your happily ever after. That’s why we’re major fans of
Something Borrowed Blooms, a ‘Rent and Return’ Floral Boutique that specializes in premium silk wedding flower collections. And before you worry about your wedding flowers not being real , let this fact console you: SBB’s flowers look real, smell amazing, and are always picture perfect — no matter where or when you tie the knot. If they look like beautiful bridal blooms, smell like beautiful bridal blooms, and photograph like pure botanical artistry, then, yes, they’re real and they’ll work stunningly for your real wedding.
Serving couples from coast to coast, Something Borrowed Blooms offers over 70% in savings compared to a traditional fresh florist. That’s probably the most surprising and satisfying coup, but what might be even better than the savings is the utter convenience of it all.
In fact, Something Borrowed Blooms actually has a Blooms Styler Quiz that you can play around with to discover the floral energy that’s perfect for you and your partner and your party-to-come.
You simply go online to Something Borrowed Blooms and choose from over 16 beautiful floral collections and décor options, including bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, boutonnieres, garlands, aisle markers, cake flowers, and more. Since there are no packages or minimums (another great thing when you consider how different and unique weddings are these days; you don’t have to have 12 bridesmaids anymore or feel pressured to opt for ALL high centerpieces for your reception), you can just purchase the items that fit your particular event needs.
You can preview a sample pack of whichever blooms you’re gravitating towards and get a precise firsthand look of exactly what you (and/or your wedding party) will be holding on the aisle. This is extremely peace-of-mind ensuring, especially speaking as the Matron of Honor for my sister who got married a few years ago and didn’t have a single frame of reference for how her flowers would turn out on her wedding day. Everything did turn out beautifully on ‘game day,’ but when we went in to see the “sample” floral centerpieces and bouquets about 6 weeks out from her wedding, they were not even close to what we had discussed with her florist. They were the wrong colors, wrong floral varieties, suffice it to say, it was a very disheartening experience.
Which isn’t always totally straightforward when you work with a fresh floral designer (because issues with floral availability, wholesaler prices, market fluctuations, etc. can have an impact on your final costs). With Something Borrowed Blooms, once you figure out what kinds of flower power you do want to feature on your big day, you just enter your payment details at checkout with a 50% deposit (to lock in your looks!). The remaining balance is charged once your total floral order has shipped, and perfectly packaged flowers arrive at your doorstep THREE full days prior to your wedding celebration.
Enjoy your chosen blooms throughout the duration of your wedding weekend, and then return them the following business day using the prepaid shipping label enclosed in the order.
It’s seriously as simple as that. No hidden costs, no unaccounted-for circumstances throwing a wrench in your total expenses.
In a perfect world, we’d all have a bestie like Isabela who could snap her fingers and grow rows and rows of roses for our weddings, but unfortunately we're just not there yet (p.s. if you haven’t seen Encanto, make sure you get on that, it’s magic).
That’s why we’re just smitten with Something Borrowed Blooms. Not only is their attention to detail effortlessly on-point, they strive to make ALL of their floral looks natural and photo-ready. Each stem is hand-selected and styled by professional fresh floral designers, and between each rental, every floral item goes through rigorous quality control (and can be refreshed, if needed) before it’s rented to the next bride.
