A beginner’s guide to DIY wedding flowers
publication date: May 1, 2020
Weddings are a huge opportunity for local flower farmers, especially with the growing awareness of and demand for seasonal, sustainable flowers. And, if there is one time that people really want special flowers, it’s at their weddings.
I live in a wedding destination area, the Oregon coast. Now that I have a few seasons of flower growing under my belt, I want to tap into that market. But wedding flowers are a lot of work on top of an already busy farming schedule. Full-service weddings involve a lot of communication in the months leading up to the event and a huge effort the week and day of the wedding to get everything done to the couple’s expectations.
Due to both time commitment and inclination, offering full-service weddings isn’t for me. I’ve decided that the best fit for my farm is do-it-yourself DIY weddings.
