Top Reasons Why You Should Rent Wedding Flowers


Working with fresh flowers and individual florists for your wedding means that your bridal bouquet concept may not be exactly how you dreamed it, especially with supply chain issues and shipping delays. Sometimes substitutions are required if the fresh flowers you wanted are blooming too late or if something was damaged in transit. There's also creative differences with each wedding floral designer.

With wedding flower rentals, you know exactly what you will receive when you place your order. Something Borrowed Blooms takes great care in providing multiple images of each product so you can see the details when deciding which wedding table centerpiece or bridal and bridesmaid bouquet is perfect for your wedding.

Budget Conscious

Some brides, grooms and engaged couples planning a wedding are looking for ways to save money on wedding flowers and renting your wedding flowers is a great option.

With rental wedding flowers, you'll pay a fraction of the price you would pay a professional florist using fresh flowers for your wedding.

For example, wedding table centerpieces from Something Borrowed Blooms range from $28 - $38 and include the vase photographed with the centerpiece.

We know it was on the top of your mind...yes, rental wedding flowers really do look real! 

Something Borrowed Blooms uses premium silk flowers from top notch suppliers and hand picks each bloom to be added to their bridal bouquets, boutonniere and centerpieces. They also wrap the wedding flowers with pot-pouri smells so the blooms smell real, too!

Not only do the wedding flowers look real, but since they are silk you don't have to worry about wilting!
