When planning a traditional wedding, flowers are one of the main priorities. But what about when you’re planning to elope? Does that mean all the details go out the window? Definitely not! There are still many great ways to include gorgeous flowers to enhance your special day. The floral experts at Rose Hill Weddings have a few tips to help you make a great choice for elopement flowers!
Setting Consider the surrounding area when choosing your flowers so they look natural to the environment. Wildflowers, for example, look right at home in a garden or meadow, while rustic foliage is perfect for a mountaintop wedding.
Seasonality For choosing flowers quickly and economically, opt for blooms that are currently in season. They’ll be much easier to obtain with little notice, and less expensive to design.
Preference If you or your partner have certain flowers that are meaningful to you, by all means- include them! On the other hand, if there are particular blooms you’d rather not include in your wedding bouquet, be sure to let your florist know so they can design the perfect arrangement just for you.
Size Compact, hand-held bouquets are a perfect accent to a quick elopement. Easily designed (especially if you’re traveling out of your local area), less expensive and oh-so-sweet, a smaller bouquet makes a perfect accessory without overwhelming your look or event.
No matter how you plan to escape, an elopement can be very exciting! Choose flowers that reflect your personality and mark the day with something special and significant. Talk to the floral designers at Rose Hill Weddings about your plans and let us create the perfect design for your special day.
