Flowers and the bride on a budget...

I wanted to share this blog with you all because I am big on people working within their budget to get what they want, and while that is looked down upon by some, I think it is a very wise thing for a new young couple to do when they are starting out. It makes no sense to go broke or get in debt because of one day when you have an entire life to live and look forward to.

So I wanted to share this really cool idea I found in a store on etsy for the bride who loves flowers and romance but needs to stick to their budget. Flowers are very easily one of the most expensive things you will spend on for your wedding, and if you don't, you are likely to end up with a very scaled down version of what you want, or not so great looking flowers which let's face it always looks pitiful and sparse.

The good news is that you don't have to give up what you want, you just have to think outside the box and be a little bit more creative, but for those who feel a little challenged in that area, that is what I am here for. So an easy solution to this problem is to use fabric flowers. These are made in various ways and styles and all have different looks and feels. They are fun, creative and actually allow for more flexibility as you can have them any way you want them...with variations on colors, patterns, prints right down to textures and the material they are made out of.

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea of what I am talking about as well as to inspire you to find something that works for you. If you are a crafty kindda girl, this should be a fun project for you and the bridesmaids, but if not take a look at www.etsy.com/shop/reallybadkitty on etsy and www.etsy.com/shop/jillianns for options and really good prices.
