Let’s talk wedding flowers.

They can be super pricey, but they’re so pretty and damn, they smell good. But paying a florist — or floral designer — can often cost considerably more than a pretty penny. And DIYing can be one huge asspain. Which is why I’m super in love with our partner, Bloominous.

As a less-than-stellar DIY-er, and a broke-ass, Bloominous is the kind of company that is like, literally, made for me. So, they’re probz a good fit for you, too.

Here’s the thing: Because Bloominous cuts out the middle man (floral designers) by sending you pre-prepped stems — cut-to-order, de-thorned and trimmed — along with all the goodies and bits ‘n’ bobs to fancify the bouquet yourself, you’ll end up shaving a pretty huge chunk off your original floral budget.

With step-by-step photo instructions so easy that even I could master ’em, bouquet and centerpiece DIY becomes a lot less daunting — and time consuming, since the kits show up right to your doorstep and you don’t have to go out to a craft shop to try to find the right doo-dads for assembly. And since the have kits for centerpieces, boutonnieres, bridal and bridesmaids bouquets and hell, even a flower crown, your flower needs are pretty much covered.

So, got that? You save time, money and you know … headache. Sign me up, yo!

Oh, wait, the best part? Well, that’s for you. Specifically one of you. The one of you who will win your own bridal bouquet kit — stems, ribbon, pins, ribbon and whatever else is needed — of your choosing from one of Bloominous’ 6 collections.

As per usual, for each task below that you complete, you’ll earn one entry. The more entries you have, the better your chance of winning. Open to US residents only (sorry, darling!).

    We’re big into food here at The Broke-Ass Bride. If you follow Dana’s other blog, LaRueBlog, then you’ve seen the slew of Korean food she’s been cooking up. And myself? Well, I cook every night — but some nights that “cooking” is just mac & cheese. Most nights, however, I try to get a little creative and a lot delicious. And that usually involves a mess. Because, let’s be real.

    And there are few things that inspire Hulk-like rage in this girl than grease stains on a favorite T-shirt or spaghetti splatter on … well … anything. While I’ve totally mastered the art of getting such stains out of clothes, it’s so much easier for me to not have to deal with it in the first place. Which is why I’m stoked to have a mini-arsenal of aprons.

    Winning Wednesday Get Frisky in the Kitchen with an Apron from Flirty Aprons

    Plus, they’re cute as hell. I have the aqua damask style and the yellow chevron style from Flirty Aprons, and they’re actually the cutest. I get a funny little boost every time I slip one on for some heavy-duty grub-makin‘, and I know that handsome guy I love thinks they’re pretty adorbz. And there’s definitely something a little alluring about channeling June Cleaver for a day.

    But you should probz just see for yourself, and enter to win your Flirty Apron of choice! From polka dots to chevron to cupcakes to country floral, there are a huge range of styles and patterns to choose from. All the aprons have long ties to form into a fancy bow if you so desire, and the oh-so-necessary pockets to hold your phone/recipe card/whatever.

    As per usual, each task in the widget below equals one entry. The more tasks completed = more entries earned = better chances of winning. And don’t forget to tell us which style you like best in the comments! Good luck, darlings!
