As we all know, we are amid an unprecedented time in history that will not soon be forgotten. Over the past year and a half, although impacted differently, I think it is safe to say we have all learned to pivot in a way we never have before.
When it comes to weddings and events, there has definitely been a shift. Although many couples are still choosing large, elaborate weddings, many have gone another direction. There has been an uptick in small, intimate gatherings that have cast a whole new light on elopements. Long ago, eloping had a bit of a negative connotation. It was mostly for those who chose to "runaway" and tie the knot. Now, beautiful, thoughtful, creative elopements are being planned on the regular.
As a wedding florist and flower farmer, I have the honor of getting to be a tiny part of these events and I have to say I am smitten. Elopements, especially in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest have an unmatched sweetness to them. Couples prioritize inviting their very closest friends and family, a location they love, photographer, florals and they are all set. The emphasis on those elements is incredibly rich.
When you are deciding on which elements of your wedding are most important to you remember that choosing not only what you want but who you want to do it is really important. I can help you to decide on which flowers are available and fit your needs best, based on the time of year and style of arrangements you want. I create florals within your budget, with your vision in mind. Not only that, but I often plant flowers for specific events in mind! When you decide to book with Beauty Grows Wild, you not only get a florist, you get a flower farmer as well.
I think the most important thing to remember when you are planning a wedding is to stay true to what you really care about as a couple. Once you have a really clear picture of that, making the decision to keep it small or go big will be easy!
