Affordable Artisanal Wedding Bouquets and Floral Arrangements by Runaway Flowers
Runaway Flowers is an offshoot of The Bloom Room designed to bridge the gap between standard-issue bridal package wedding bouquets, and exquisite but pricey bespoke blooms.
If you’ve been swooning over gorgeous Pinterest images of artisanal wedding florals, but can’t quite bear to pay the price of a bespoke wedding bouquet, Runaway Flowers is here to make your day. An offshoot of floral atelier The Bloom Room, Runaway Flowers is the florist’s new line of artisanal wedding bouquets and table centrepieces at affordable prices. The easy-to-order wedding florals allow you the freedom to style your intimate celebrations however you want, without the difficulty of actually DIY-ing your floral arrangements from scratch.
Jaclyn Lim, girl boss of The Bloom Room, tells us that they dreamt up Runaway Flowers to fill the fuss-free wedding floral niche in Singapore. “In terms of wedding flowers, local brides-to-be only get to choose from two extremes: one-size-fits-all flowers that come along with bridal packages, and exquisite but pricey bespoke blooms,” she says. “That’s why we developed Runaway Flowers, which combines quality craftsmanship with pocket-friendly prices. All Runaway Flowers designs feature our signature style, which is an offbeat and organic blend of fresh, fun flowers.” The collection of beautiful wedding bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and table centrepieces allow brides to fulfil their floral visions while saving a pretty penny.
With its easy-to-shop online collection, Runaway Flowers is great for a bride-to-be who likes the romance and adventure of putting together an intimate, handcrafted wedding. If you’re looking to style a casual, smaller wedding, you can simply email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm availability of your wedding date, then visit the site and choose what you need for your celebration. After carting out, all you need to do is fill up a short form detailing your colour palette and ribbon choice, and Runaway Flowers will process your order and send you an itemised quote within 24 hours. Make a 50% deposit to confirm your order and Runaway Flowers will craft floral arrangements based on your chosen colour palette. The balance will be due three working days before your wedding date. You can choose to pick up your own flowers, or have them delivered to your venue for a fee, where you can let loose your inner stylist to create your personalised, intimate celebration.
Runaway Flowers gives you the liberty to pick and choose only what you need for your wedding event. For instance, if you’re planning to decorate your ROM ceremony on your own, you could cart out a Standard Bouquet ($165) to use as your wedding bouquet, a couple of Boutonnieres ($18 each) for your groom and your father, and two to three Standard Table Centrepieces ($78-$180), whether in mason jars or low vases, to decorate your ROM table or lunch buffet tables. A fun and casual café wedding could be spruced up with a dozen Small Table Centrepieces ($35-$68) in rustic mason jars or enamel mugs, to add a pop of fresh colour to each table. A minimum order of $350 applies.
The affordable price point means a couple who want artisanal floral designs, but aren’t fussed about specific flower types, could put together their wedding florals for less than $500. “We are able to lower the prices yet still include quality craftsmanship because we remove the consultative process that is characteristic of our bespoke service at The Bloom Room,” explains Jaclyn. At Runaway Flowers, Jaclyn and her team work with chosen colour palettes instead of taking brides through The Bloom Room’s very customised process of creating a bride’s wedding floral dream.
The Bloom Room’s exquisite bespoke florals call for a higher price tag because the atelier pays personalised attention to each couple, by scheduling detailed consultations, working with regular flower suppliers to order the couple’s preferred blooms, and making several trips to different nurseries to collect the flowers that make up the couple’s specific floral mix, while giving them peace of mind with regular updates. Bespoke wedding bouquets come with a complimentary matching groom’s boutonniere and range from $200 to $420, depending on whether you choose more affordable blooms such as roses or gerberas, or more luxurious flowers such as peonies or David Austin roses. In comparison, an artisanal Standard Bouquet and a boutonniere at Runaway Flowers costs $183.
With their artisanal designs, affordable price point, and easy online ordering system, Runaway Flowers is great for brides-to-be who want to DIY dessert tables or put together intimate family luncheons, and even for bridesmaids organising pretty bridal showers to pamper their brides. To make things even easier on brides planning their weddings, Runaway Flowers is teaming up with Winifred Kristé Cake to create wedding packages that include wedding florals and a wedding cake.
