Alas, if you want a wedding on a budget – it does take work and work means… well, working. But have no fear, fellow lazy bitches! I've rounded up my best tips and ideas for finding a wedding bouquet on a budget (and not breaking a sweat).
All hail the lazy bitches! We're the ones who would rather pin pretty stuff on Pinterest than actually get off our asses and DIY them. We're the ones who opt to let our partner plan the entire honeymoon because it allows us to spend that time cleaning out our DVR. Yes, we are alive and well in the wedding community – though we're enjoying said community reclining on our collective bums.

The Lazy Bitch's Guide to Finding a Wedding Bouquet on a Budget
1. Right off the bat, forget fancy florists – they are too expensive for us and generally take an entire DAY to do the wedding flowers thing. All day to plan one bouquet? Pffft. No. Instead, go to a small, local florist who will probably have a few good options or designs for you to look at with little hassle and in a few hours. Bing, bang, done.
2. Know what flowers you want already? Cruise Blooms by the Box for a solid deal. Sometimes it's a all there in a pre-made arrangement. Sometimes you'll need to DIY it. But generally, you can find yourself a good deal AND do it from the comfort of your couch.
3. Check out your local supermarket. No really, there are TONS of pretty flowers there at any given time and most are a steal. If you're worried about choosing the "wrong" colors or getting stuck with an ugly pre-made bouquet then your best bet is to stick to picking only flowers that are all in the same color family.
4. Delegate. Seriously, if you know what you want – why not have a friend or family member find the flowers and even make the arrangement for you (that's what I did for my wedding)? This is a task to palm off to someone dying to help… then just show up to walk it down the aisle.
