I am really racking my brain trying to cut costs in every way I can. Weddings are freaking expensive in case you haven't heard.
My awesome dad is covering most of the costs, but the decorations, invitations, programs, and dress are up to me. So how do I save money on flowers?
Decide that fake flowers will be just as nice as real flowers, especially when you have an aunt that is crafty as hell and would absolutely LOVE to put together some nice flower arrangements for you.
Shop around local crafts stores and Wal Mart. Realize that paying $2.00 per FAKE rose is ridiculous and start feeling like a failure.
Call sister and complain. When she seems distracted and acts likes she doesn't care if you can't afford flowers for a wedding, hang up and pout.
Put on a determined face and turn to the interwebs.
Find a seller that is offering 252 red roses for $37.99 with FREE shipping.
Realize that it's too good to be true and start researching.
Determine that the seller has tons of positive feedback and the flowers have a 60 day money back guarantee.
Then debate with yourself whether or not it is too early to buy flowers.
Tell self to shut the hell up and click Buy already.
Do a happy dance because you just saved $466.01.
