How to Plan a Wedding Under $10K

Six helpful wedding tips to keep your wedding under budget. 

Although the cost of weddings have decreased over the past two years (thanks, but no thanks COVID), the average wedding is still well over $20K. But your wedding doesn’t have to be! There are so many ways to have a beautiful and memorable wedding day without going into debt or overextending you and your family. 

Before setting your budget, we always recommend making a list of your top priorities - your non-negotiables that you know will make your day just as you’ve dreamed. Once your list is defined, then you can start to shift your budget in other areas to ensure your top priorities get the appropriate share of the budget for your wedding. For every couple, those non-negotiables look different. If you’re set on the perfect venue, then scale back on your guest list to make it happen. Or if having a large guest list is what your heart desires, then get creative with the catering and bar set up. 

We’ve outlined a few of our favorite tips for keeping a wedding within a $10K budget, but give yourself permission to splurge in some areas and save where you can. It’s all about the balance.

Tip No. 1 

Opt for a small backyard ceremony

This is by far the most effective way to drastically reduce your spend since the venue is always the biggest ticket item for the wedding day. Think about unconventional venues, like the home of a family member or friend or a unique AirBnB. COVID has definitely shown us all how special and absolutely beautiful a well-planned backyard wedding can be. If your guest list is already on the small side, this might be a great option for you.

Reserve the backyard for a beautiful ceremony space. Guests can transition inside for cocktail hour as the backyard is transformed into a reception space. Be sure to hire a caterer and day of coordinator that can accommodate the flipping of the space, while you and your guests enjoy. 

Tip No. 2 

Trade fresh flowers for faux rentals 

We may be a little biassed on this one, but premium silk floral rentals are another great way to pull in major savings in the wedding budget. And it just makes perfect sense, because fresh flowers die... DIE! Used for just a few hours or sometimes even minutes and never touched again for the rest of the reception. By renting silk florals from Something Borrowed Blooms for the ceremony and reception you’ll save thousands of dollars in your overall wedding budget without having to sacrifice on quality or style. Our premium silk flowers are guaranteed to be picture perfect and most wedding guests don’t know the difference!

Wedding flowers

Choose from over 15 floral collections that include bridal bouquets, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, centerpieces, aisle markers, garland, floral hair accessories, even decor! Select only the items that you need; no need to stick to predetermined packages or minimums. Your beautiful silk blooms will arrive three days before your event date, giving you time to set up and decorate your venue.

Tip No. 3 

Get smart with the dress

Selecting a wedding dress can be overwhelming - so many styles, materials, designers and the list goes on. If you’re wanting to narrow down your options and your investment, stick to reputable online retailers that offer well-made, affordable little white dresses or even full gowns. ByWatters is one of our favorite brands of little white dresses with a FAST turnaround time. The brand offers high-quality designs from Watters, but quicker and more affordable than ever! They have options for just about any type of celebration - ballroom, courtyard, backyard, or whatever!


Tip No. 4

Narrow down your photographer's focus

Photos and memories are some of the only keepsakes from the wedding day, so instead of skimping on talent, we suggest you narrow down the time with your photographer. Instead of opting for a full 10-12 hour day, stick to 6-8 hours and really maximize their time with you. While shortening the window, your photographer will be most focused on capturing the best images from the most meaningful part of the day. What happens before and after their time with you is typically best caught on camera phones anyway! 

Tip No. 5

Scale down your cake

A cake from your local bakery always seems reasonably priced for most celebrations, but tack the word wedding onto it and the price increases exponentially! Cut down on the expense with a smaller cake for the statement piece and pictures, and have a sheet cake or cupcakes in the background to feed the majority of your guests. Dessert bars have also become increasingly popular over the years and can also offer savings compared to a traditional wedding cake. Enhance your cake or dessert bar with cake florals that coordinate with your wedding flowers for a cohesive look!

Tip No. 6

Choose eco-friendly invites

Evites eliminates the waste associated with mailed invitations and pulls double duty in the savings category, eliminating the cost of print and postage! Your guests will appreciate less paper waste and the convenience of electronically adding the date to their calendar. Support your evites with a beautiful wedding website and your guests and you will have everything centrally located, including the responses! 

There are so many ways to save on the wedding day, but sometimes you just need to give yourself permission to think outside of tradition. Hopefully, these tips have helped to ease some stress and inspire your wedding planning. We love hearing from our #sbbloomsbrides, so please share your favorite wedding savings tips with us below!

Erin & Harrison’s Fairytale Garden Wedding

College sweethearts tie the knot at an intimate northwestern estate, adorned in beautiful flowers from Something Borrowed Blooms.

Newlyweds, Erin and Harrison met in the early days of college with dorm rooms just steps away from each other and studying the same major. The two instantly began a friendship that would soon blossom into love after just one date. When planning for their wedding, COVID-19, like many other couples, steered their plans in a different direction but ultimately for the better!

Keep reading to learn how SBBlooms Bride; Erin, styled the wedding of her dreams using the Millie Collection!

Erin’s original plans shifted not only from COVID-19, like so many other brides in 2020. But interestingly enough, the delayed wedding allowed for the wedding flowers of her dreams with a new collection release from Something Borrowed Blooms! She originally planned to use the Audrey or Olivia Collection but instantly fell in love with our Fall 2020 release, the Mille Collection.

“...The Millie Collection was the perfect collection for us - she is elegant but has enough variety to be interesting. I love the hydrangeas and the colors of her! I actually was able to pick out the fabric for our custom napkins based on the colors Millie used, so everything coordinated so well. The centerpieces for Millie are gorgeous and can stand on their own as a feature piece.  As a last-minute decision, we even used the centerpieces to line the aisle, before moving them to the table.”

(LOOK at that beautiful Millie Bridal Bouquet!)


As Erin was searching for a wedding flower vendor, convenience, transparency, and design were top of mind! In comes Something Borrowed Blooms...

“... No surprises the day of, and you can easily coordinate decorating without worrying about real flowers wilting, etc. I was doing all of the wedding planning myself, so I loved being able to know what the color palette was, what kind of flowers were included and the final "look" I was going to be getting.”

“The team at SBBlooms is amazing! Via the SBBlooms Brides Facebook group and Instagram, I saw how attentive and accommodating they are. I could email, direct message, comment, and someone would always get back to me. They also have so many different collections to choose from to cater to every type of bride. I think a big benefit to brides considering SBBlooms is that they have built a large community of customers, so you can see real photos and ask questions. You never feel alone in the process!”

Erin and Harrison’s wedding was definitely a romantic garden dream. Elegant, intimate, and stunningly simple. The Millie Collection fit perfectly into their vision not only as a breathtaking floral collection but doubled as a convenient, stress-free, and cost-effective wedding decision.

Congratulations Erin and Harrison!

Best Wedding Flower Collections to Mix & Match

Create your dream wedding florals with endless options from SBBlooms

When it comes to choosing your wedding flowers, you probably have a specific vision and budget in mind. Whether you’re hoping to have your blooms all match perfectly or a variety of different styles throughout the ceremony and reception, it’s never been easier to make your dream wedding flowers a reality.

With Something Borrowed Blooms’ rent and return wedding flowers, the options are truly endless. Couples can choose from sixteen different collections and styles and mix and match products to fit their needs. For some couples, pairing premium silk flowers with fresh flowers provides a great solution for a maxed-out budget. Others love to take advantage of ALL the savings by opting for silk florals for the entire wedding day. Offering full flexibility and unlimited pairing options from different premium silk floral collections, there are no packages or minimums. You’re in charge! Pick and choose your wedding flowers to perfectly fit your individual needs.

There are so many combinations that work beautifully together. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite combinations here!

Audrey & WTOO

Our traditional all-white Audrey Collection pairs beautifully with almost ALL of our premium silk floral collections. With luscious white florals including ranunculus, peonies, and hydrangeas, it’s hard to find a collection that doesn’t pair well. Our favorite combination of all is paired with the WTOO Collection.

SBBlooms Bride; Kaylee, mixed both of these collections for a stunning luxe look for her special day. By using the WTOO for most of her ceremony arrangements and subtle hints of Audrey, the neutral pops of color complimented her gold decor perfectly. She completed this romantically lit reception area with our Classic Gold candlesticks, small and large gold votive holders, small WTOO centerpieces, along with our WTOO and Audrey garland

Want to see these two collections together? Order a preview pack or sign up for a LIVE styling session here!

Nina & Laurel

The perfect pairing DOES exist! Two of our most bohemian-inspired collections used together can create an irresistible, natural look. So much so, that we often encourage all of our SBBlooms Brides renting the Nina Collection for their special day, to incorporate products from the Laurel Collection to enhance the organic vibe. With the Nina Collection having this season’s most sought-after color palette of rust, light lavender, and deep plum, the coleus leaf and lavender sprigs of the Laurel collection peak through to match ever so perfectly.

SBBlooms Bride; Mady, incorporated both of these collections for her wedding reception and we couldn’t be more impressed with how it all turned out! Pictured below, is the gorgeous Nina garland used for her sweetheart table with the Laurel garland placed on both sides with Nina cake cluster stems placed throughout.

Want to see these two collections together? Order a preview pack or sign up for a LIVE styling session here!  

Jane & Stella

A tried and true pairing that’s been a favorite for years! Our beloved Jane and Stella Collection will always be a gorgeous pairing. With the neutral green and white color palette of the Jane Collection, much like the Audrey collection, she goes with almost all of our other 16 collections. But, when paired with the moody marsala color palette of the Stella Collection, it brings to light a whole new romantic wedding flower collection. 

SBBlooms Bride; Angel, used the Stella Bridal bouquet for herself and paired her red bridesmaid dresses with the Jane bridesmaid bouquets. With her bridesmaids carrying a soft neutral bouquet, her bridal bouquet allows her to stand out more with pops of color.

Traditional Modernized - The NEW Kimpton Collection

Red and blush wedding flower inspiration, perfect for fall and winter weddings. 

Every so often, our team at Something Borrowed Blooms catches a strong desire to give a little extra love to a collection that may not be receiving the same attention as others. This time around, the beloved Kimpton collection was lucky enough to receive a much-needed makeover.

For this Something Borrowed Blooms original, updating a traditional color palette into a modern, romantic, rouge and blush wedding flower collection was just the inspiration we needed to get this fall/winter wedding season started!

Keep reading to find out all the new details of Kimptons NEW look.

The new and upgraded Kimpton Collection features the same rich red and pink color palette, perfect for the fall and winter months. This premium silk wedding flower collection is composed of lush burgundy hydrangea, red, pink, and two-toned spray roses. Complemented with magnolia leaves and an abundance of seeded eucalyptus, giving it a natural look.

With this refresh, we’ve decided to offer two styles of bridal bouquets. The Kimpton Bridal bouquet (round) is a traditional nosegay shape with added seeded eucalyptus. The Kimpton Bridal bouquet (cascading) is a true modern descending bridal bouquet, perfect for the bride looking for a dramatic overflowing bouquet of flowers.

Noteworthy Kimpton Collection product updates also include the Kimpton Bridesmaid bouquet, centerpiece, aisle marker, and posy. We’ve even added two NEW products to the collection - A delicate Kimpton floral hairpin and a second Kimpton garland, filled with lush magnolia leaves.

Kimpton can be paired with an array of beautiful colors, but our design team fell in love with pairing her with soft lace and blush for a truly romantic vibe. Colors such as soft champagne and blush from Revelry’s satin collection were an excellent choice for the bridesmaids. For the bride, the gorgeous Bradley gown from Watters. A slight mermaid-style gown accented with a lace bodice, crepe skirt, and button detail along the back.

For finishing touches, each model was styled in jewelry from our friends at Embark. Silver necklaces, bracelets, and earrings embellished with opal stones to enhance the overall color palette.

We hope you love our updated Kimpton Collection as much as we do! For more inspiration, browse our floral collections, and follow us on Instagram for real wedding inspiration.

Wedding Flowers that Travel

Wedding flowers for your destination wedding or elopement just got easier with Something Borrowed Blooms!

After what feels like an endless year of being cooped up, we are seeing more and more couples with a sense of adventure, and rightfully so! Destination weddings and elopements are the perfect way to reflect your fun-loving spirit and venturesome heart as a couple. But, how will your wedding flowers follow where your feet may bring you? No need to worry,  Something Borrowed Blooms makes traveling with wedding flowers simple and stress-free. And great news, we’ve just added an extended rental option to give couples the freedom to bring their blooms wherever they may roam. Spend less time worrying about sourcing fresh flowers in a city you don’t know and more time making memories to own, with our rent and return silk wedding flowers that are always picture perfect! 


Our new 10-day rental period allows couples to receive their blooms domestically and travel with them wherever they wish to exchange their vows. How cool? Couples can receive their wedding flowers in the comfort of their home with a 10 day period to travel freely across the country, or internationally, and back before returning your blooms. The convenience of a 10-day rental takes the stress of finding a local FedEx away when you’re in an unfamiliar city.


Something Borrowed Blooms ships anywhere in the continental United States and Canada, but what if you and your love decided to elope to a place like Cabo San Lucas? We have a solution! Start your wedding order or quote, by creating an account through our website and selecting your wedding date. Below the wedding date box, there’s a toggle button with ‘Make my Order an Extended 10-day Rental’. By clicking this, the prices on each of our products will reflect the price you would pay for the 10-day rental, instead of the standard 5-day rental period.

Continue through the shopping experience by adding any and all items you desire to your cart. There are never any minimums or package requirements, so you’re free to create an order that meets your specific needs. The check-out process is quick and easy. Once your order is placed and your 50% deposit is paid, you’re all set! Your blooms will be delivered to your door 3 days prior to your event date, ready to travel wherever you go! Need your order sooner than 3 days prior? If so, select your event date as the day you plan to travel. This will ensure your flowers are in-hands before your travel date.


When selecting the 10-day rental option, your total will be adjusted accordingly - twice the price of the original rental period with a special 20% off discount! Here’s a quick comparison to show the various pricing options of wedding flowers.

Although the 10-day rental price is steeper than our traditional pricing, there’s still A LOT of savings to be had. Even more so, when compared to resort pricing. Often resorts have pre-contracted florists for weddings and events, meaning you can’t choose your florist or price shop. Typically there is a set price and packages that you’re presented to select from and at times floral selections can be limited depending on the time of year and location of the resort. Knowing exactly what you’ll receive on your wedding day from Something Borrowed Blooms is a huge advantage for those type-A personalities.


If you’ve been contemplating an elopement in the pink sands of the Bahamas or a breathtaking mountain top ceremony with the love of your life, there’s never been a better time to do it. We hope our rent and return wedding flowers will ease the stress of planning and become part of your sweet memories!

Questions about the new 10-day rental option? Reach out to us on our website or send us an email at info@sbblooms.com. You can also join our SBBlooms Brides Facebook group to get all the insider pro tips and advice from past and present SBBlooms Brides.

How to Make the Most Out of Your Wedding Decor

Save hundreds by repurposing ceremony decorations for your reception

You’ve planned out the decor and flower arrangements for your wedding ceremony to a tee when you’ve suddenly realized you have a whole other event to decorate for; your reception! The price of decor quickly starts to rise as you finalize your table count and other areas like your welcome sign, cake table, and sign-in table. But decorating for your reception doesn't have to overextend your budget. Keep reading to find out how you can transform your reception by repurposing your ceremony decorations. 


We recently released grand centerpieces, which are just as grand as the name. These extra-large centerpieces make a BIG statement at the ceremony and reception. We’re full of excitement over these new centerpieces, so we’re overflowing with inspiration on how to elevate your ceremony and reception space, saving major dollars when compared to fresh floral centerpieces of the same size. 

These large centerpieces can be paired with our centerpiece stands for added height and impact. Stands are rented in two colors, gold and pewter, and two heights, 45” and 29.5”. Pair a stand and grand centerpiece together for the focal point or alter at your ceremony space and later move the display over to your buffet table at the reception. Not having a buffet-style reception? No problem. Repurposing your grand centerpieces at the head table or family of the bride and groom can be another way to pull double duty on these lovely flowers. Depending on the style and theme of your wedding, you may also choose to forgo a traditional stand and place these voluptuous centerpieces on top of wine barrels, as suggested by our SBBlooms Brides


We LOVE when our brides repurpose bridesmaid bouquets for the reception. Save money on centerpieces by using the bouquets for your tables. Purchasing some budget-friendly vases and placing them on tables or areas where you need extra blooms, is a great way to save money, and reduce the number of products you use during your wedding. Pictured below, an SBBlooms Bride got creative and lined her Taylor bridesmaid bouquets in front of the wedding party table. Another bride showcased her gorgeous Audrey Hand-tied Bridal bouquet as a focal point for her seating placement cards. 

Placing your bridesmaid bouquets around your cake table is also a great way to maximize your floral budget! Right after the ceremony, have your bridesmaids drop their bridesmaid bouquets off at the cake table. Arrange the bouquets in a semi-circle around the cake to create a lush floral arch. Read more on how to enhance your cake table decor here.

SBBlooms Tip: For collections with flat-backs, add a couple of posies to make the back look fuller. 


Aisle markers are one of our favorite products to decorate with because the possibilities are endless! These beautiful arrangements are so versatile and we have so many tips and tricks up our sleeves when it comes to decorating with them. Use the aisle markers to drape on the edge of your ceremony chairs or pews to line the aisle. You can also add to your arch by combining two or three together to create a swag element on one side. Move this arrangement to your welcome sign walking into the reception area.

Don’t be afraid to use our products in more ways than one! We love when our couples get creative and find ways to utilize our products other than their original purpose. Also to mention by doing this, you can save hundreds and you’ll have less cleanup to worry about at the end of the night. We hope we’ve inspired you to get crafty and think outside the box when it comes to your wedding decorations.

The Future of the Wedding Flower Industry

Something Borrowed Blooms’ Founders Share Exciting News on the Future!

 Something Borrowed Blooms Co-Founder & CEO, Lauren Bercier

It’s not often that we share business updates on the blog, but this news calls for all the spotlight because it’s GOOD and we couldn’t be more proud. New and exciting things are happening at Something Borrowed Blooms. We just completed our Series A Fundraising with a $1.5 million investment from a Venture Capital partner. Why? Because they believe that the future of the wedding flower industry is Something Borrowed Blooms - and so do we!

To date, we’ve served over 13,000 couples across the US and Canada with our rent and return silk wedding flowers. We founded Something Borrowed Blooms with cost savings in mind, but immediately saw a need to modernize the industry in a technical way by offering a stress-free and transparent eCommerce solution for wedding flowers. In doing so, we've created a business model that's truly unique, providing so much value to today’s modern couples looking for more sustainable and eco-friendly options for the wedding day. But this is just the beginning of the journey for Something Borrowed Blooms, because there’s still so much more to offer the industry that’s bound by tradition.

Each handwritten thank you note, online review, referral and tag motivates us to work harder to share our brand with more couples; providing affordable, sustainable and stress-free wedding flowers all over the US & Canada and beyond! With more capital and a stronger network we will continue to grow, expand, and most importantly - innovate!

We're excited for the future and we think you will be too. We'll soon be expanding our headquarters in Lafayette, LA, adding new product lines and services, and enhancing our online features, making the Something Borrowed Blooms shopping experience even better than today!

 Something Borrowed Blooms Founders, Laken Swan & Lauren Bercier

To our lovely past Brides, our new customers anxiously awaiting the wedding day, and those of you just in the market and exploring all your options - THANK YOU for supporting Something Borrowed Blooms.
