A Budget Bride's Secret

Everyone is always telling me how amazing my bouquet was on my wedding day. Well let me pass on this little secret from one bride to another -


I got my bouquet from Kroger THREE HOURS BEFORE MY WEDDING FOR $19.99! 


There is a Kroger not far from my job and I go there often. On Wednesdays for me and DH's date night, I always get roses on clearance for 3.99 for a dozen to put on our table. The roses are always beautiful, fragrant and still fresh. I knew right from the beginning of my wedding planning that I didn't want to spend a ton of money on flowers, so finding a bouquet so beautiful the day of my wedding was heavenly!


FLOWERS FROM KROGER - IT'S A GOOD THING!

I'm doing the same thing with Sams Club.


It's so much cheaper that way!

Yes it is Elle! Thought I would pass this along for bride's who want beautiful flowers but don't want to spend a ton if they don't have to!

I couldn't believe I had found such a beautiful bouquet on the day of my wedding! I walked in there it was Kristen! DH sent me roses from a florist that were 89.99 that didn't look anywhere near as gorgeous as my bouquet!

I love Market Basket for their flowers too! There is nothing wrong with spending money wisely and it leaves more for the most important aspect of all. . . The Honeymoon!!

Yes!!! I bought my bouquet from a Safeway (grocery) the day of my wedding as well!! Everyone talks about how big of an expense flowers are and I think for me it would have been silly to spend so much! Since I was set on only sunflowers, it was easy to just buy them from the stores!
