One of the most popular current bridal trends is the elegant, yet down-to-earth “rustic” themed wedding. The desired fresh vintage feel was recently embodied in this Vermont Barn wedding, photographed by Stylish & Hip Wedding Photography.
The two brides chose the Webster Barn in Morrisville, Vermont as their venue which provided plenty of room for guests, fresh air, and gorgeous scenery. A Wildflower Pack from BloomsByTheBox.com gave our girls the perfect inspiration to complete their vision. To complete the package, they chose to add billy balls, blue cornflower, green spider mums and pompon buttons. The bridal bouquets were made with the same types of flowers, but each was unique. As a LGBT friendly vendor (a same sex right advocate!), BloomByTheBox.com provides excellent service to all of its customers to aid in flower selection, flower care and DIY arrangements.
These Do-It Yourself arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres added a very personal touch to a lovely wedding. With no buyer restrictions, you can buy wholesale flowers in bulk online at BloomsByTheBox.com and save money! Looking for more wedding inspiration? Visit BloomsByTheBox.com today!
Choosing what kind of fundraiser to do for your organization can be tricky. You want to pick a fundraiser with a high profit margin, does not require too much out of pocket expense, and will be easy to sell. Well, we have the perfect solution. Sell flowers during Valentine’s Day! It is incomparably convenient to order roses or carnations, bunch them together in pairs with some greenery and sell mini bouquets for the best results. You can make anywhere from $6-$15 on each mini bouquet you sell! Or you can even sell roses by the stem!
The fact is, people hate spending $100.00 on a dozen roses but still want to bring something home for their loved one. Offering a small 3-6 rose bouquet with filler and greenery is a perfect way to help people spend less while helping you make more.
If you don’t want to fuss with the flowers you can get prepared rose or carnations bouquets. All you need to do is get the flowers out of the box, cut the stems, put them in water, and sell them!
This type of fundraiser is especially good for college organizations such as sororities, fraternities, and student organizations. Selling mini bouquets in high traffic areas such as student centers, bus stops, and classrooms will yield a high profit. The convenience and low price will make it an easy purchase choice for students passing by.
What about a church fundraiser! This is a great chance to raise funds and provide low cost flowers yo a congregation. Sell them at weekly meetings or a church service to get the best results.
Like we said earlier, it can be difficult to raise funds for a cause or organization but when you are supplying flowers, an affordable price, and convenience on a day like Valentine’s Day people are extremely likely to buy.

This beautiful nature themed DIY Wedding is a great example of how a vision and thought can really turn into a beautiful wedding. The couples love for nature truly translates into a beautiful, warm wedding. These beautiful moments were captured by Jaye Kogut Photography, a truly one of a kind photographer with a unique talent for creating memories within a photo. Visit Jaye Kogut Photography blog for more of her wonderful photos and wedding inspiration.
Becca and Jeff’s wedding was held at Camp Ockanickon in Medford, NJ on November 3, 2012. They both really love nature and wanted to incorporate it into their wedding – so they chose the camp ground and a lot of natural rustic features. They both got ready in log cabins, the girls did their own nails the night before the wedding and her two sisters put letters to spell out “Jeff and Bean” on their nails. The mother of the bride did the centerpieces and the bridal party collectively decorated the mess hall where the cocktail hour and reception was held. They had a live band perform and a touching lake front ceremony.
The yellow, purple, burgundy, pink and orange flowers create a pop of color and correlate with their rustic centerpieces including pumpkins, lanterns, and raffia. The bouquets feature purple hydrangeas, miracle roses, bronze cushion mums, hot pink and burgundy carnations, green hypericum berries, and variegated pittosporum.
How adorable is this shot? The boots…the dresses…the wood….amazing!
