Blooming Buckets for Brides
A great option for budget-savvy brides, we offer in-season stems for your wedding or event that can be arranged by you, your family members or your bridesmaids. This program is available mid-June through mid-September only.
Buckets come with all florals and foliage needed for lovely, balanced arrangements. Each bucket makes approximately 4-5 medium sized arrangements or 6-8 small arrangements. There is a 3-bucket minimum. Each bucket will contain 40-60 stems for $85/bucket, with $5/bucket refunded when buckets are returned.
The key to this option is flexibility. We accommodate your flower palette with the most beautifully and abundantly blooming varieties growing that week. We cannot reserve specific flower varieties because seasonal flowers come and grow by season. We do not import from international growers. We do not grow roses. If your heart is set on particular flowers, you will be happiest working with a florist who can guarantee it, and who will charge you accordingly.
Some focal flowers (like dinnerplate dahlias or peony stems) are $2 to $4 apiece due to larger investments in root stock vs. seed, and market value. We are happy to include these in your buckets for a small additional cost. We will confer with you before adding these pricier flowers to your buckets.
Your Blooming Bridal Buckets will be available at Bleeding Heart Flower Farm between 10 am-3 pm the Thursday before your event or by other arrangement. (Delivery is $50 plus round-trip milage. We cannot deliver to locations farther than 60 miles from our farm.)
You can return your buckets at our Farm at any time during the week following your wedding.
Your upfront $100 deposit reserves your date on our calendar, with remaining balance due at pick up. A larger deposit may be required for high-volume requests. Once your date is reserved, we will send you directions to the Farm as well as helpful tips to keep your flowers their freshest for your day. Sign up soon to reserve your date!
Some brides like to DIY their centerpieces and chair flowers but prefer to have their personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages) designed by a professional designer. Bleeding Heart does some custom design, partners with local design professionals for other engagements, and can help suggest and guide you in finding the perfect fit for full service design. Alternatively, we are happy to source flowers to a floral designer of your choosing.
