The details of your intimate wedding or elopement are what make your special day uniquely yours.

Your location, vows, and even who you choose to invite are all a reflection of you and bae as a couple. Another small but important detail are your elopement florals, if you choose to have them. There are no rules for elopements, so if you don’t want flowers you can totally skip them.

For my floral-loving couples, creating the perfect elopement florals isn’t always easy. Here are some things to consider when thinking about what you want.

What’s in season?

There are certain flowers that are “in season.” Double check what those will be for your big day! Sunflowers are legit from May – November, tulips are perfect November – May, and roses bloom all year round. If you have your heart set on a flower that isn’t in season during your date, it may still be an option. If it is, just keep in mind it’ll be more expensive to include in your bouquet or arrangements.

Leave it to the pros

Making bouquets and floral arrangements is an ART. I know it’s tempting to save some money and make your own, but I strongly encourage my couples to opt out of a DIY floral moment. The pros know what they’re doing. They can find the perfect shades to match whatever you want and will know how to deal with any emergencies so you don’t have to stress about it.

Know your options

It’s 2023 and floral options have gotten wild. Now you can choose alternatives like silk flowers, that photograph like the real shit. I’m serious! Check out The Faux Bouquet for the real deal.

Silk flowers can be scented to smell like the real deal and will look the same on your 50th anniversary as they do on the big day.

Keep us in the loop

PLEASE for everyone’s sanity coordinate the arrival of your elopement florals with your photographer. This helps us get pictures of them with your other details, like rings, shoes, and vows, before it’s go time.

If you’re heading out to Denver for your elopement, I love these local baddies for florals!

Before you pick your elopement florals, you better book your photog!
