Using local flowers is a great way to do two of our favorite things: save money and support small businesses!
Local wildflowers add beautiful interest to weddings. By using flowers that grow in the area, your guests get more of a sense of location. Especially in beautiful Colorado, highlighting location makes for a gorgeous, cohesive day. Wildflower bouquets are some of our favorite things to design. We love the loose, flowy boho look and the way they just scream Colorado. Our mountains grow some beautiful flowers! Using them in your bouquet makes for a real, wild Colorado wedding.
Flowers that are local and in-season are also a great way to save money. Using local flowers doesn’t only mean using flowers that are native to Colorado. While many of our local partners do grow Colorado wildflowers, many of them also grow more “traditional” flowers. If you need roses and dahlias you can get them! Getting your flowers from a local farm generally means you won’t have to pay as much for shipping. Your flowers will also be fresher and of higher quality than flowers shipped long distances. Many of our local partners also offer bulk flowers, which is really great for our DIY brides!
Supporting local businesses, especially lately, is an awesome way to give back to your community. Plus, like I mentioned above, they tend to offer much higher quality product! I included some of our favorite local partners below.
