Let’s face it: brides and grooms are already busy planning their weddings, so anything to alleviate the stress from making yet another decision is a welcome relief for most. For those who especially lack the bandwidth to carefully curate arrangements for the wedding, floral startup Farmgirl Flowers is now offering up an easy and quite beautiful solution that can be delivered directly to your door (or your venue).
The San Francisco-based brand announced Wednesday, July 25, that it’s debuting a new wedding-specific collection so that engaged couples can seamlessly access affordable bouquets and centerpieces all pre-arranged and carefully packed and shipped directly to chosen destinations.
“Growing up in rural Indiana, I always found special occasion flowers to be a little lackluster,” CEO and founder of Farmgirl Flowers, Christina Stembel, tells The Knot. “We just didn’t have access to a lot of premium floral options.”
The alternatives are oftentimes bleak, something Stembel hopes to dissipate with her delivery service. “It wasn’t uncommon to see fake arrangements come down the aisle or on tables at weddings,” she adds. “That’s why I’m so excited to introduce this collection.”
Stembel, a former event planner herself, launched the service in 2010 with $48,000 of her savings. Since then, she’s expanded her business, of course its latest derivative centered on weddings in peak season. “Now brides and grooms can have beautiful, hand-tied bouquets and boutonnières on their special day,” she says, “no matter where they live.”
Stembel’s team decided to name their wedding line the “City Hall Collection,” with its offerings fitting everything from an elopement to a larger-size bridal party’s needs.
Traditional brides and grooms will want to start with the “Tie the Knot” package, which includes one boutonnière and one bridal bouquet. The aesthetic is comprised of “romantic neutrals” in typical soft wedding hues like creams, soft corals, mauve and whites, and the bouquet comes with a bountiful 20 to 25 stems.

Couples can add to the “Tie the Knot” package with the “To Have and To Hold” line, which is perfect for bridesmaids. This deal comes with two smaller bouquets each comprised of about 10 to 12 stems, and the best part is it pairs well with the bridal bouquet aesthetic.

Finally, make it easy on your groomsmen with the “Heart on Your Sleeve” line which includes two boutonnières also in the romantic neutrals aesthetic.

Centerpieces are also easier for all your wedding-related events with the brand’s new Vase, Vase, Baby Collection. The line includes a seasonal collection comprised of blooms and lush greenery. Plus, a vase comes with the arrangement itself. This particular line is pre-arranged and suspended within the packaging to prevent any mishaps for when it’s delivered to your door.
