I LOVE to create wedding flowers! Bridal bouquets, coordinating bridesmaids’ bouquets, boutonnieres, flower crowns, table decor, installations – it’s a total rush for me to make these for you, especially if you value local, seasonal flowers!
I consider my style somewhat rustic, in that I like to mix what I grow and what I forage to create unique designs. I use locally grown, seasonal flowers, greenery and herbs, sourced directly from my farm or from other western Massachusetts farmers, but I’m also happy to source in non-local flowers to mix with our home-grown ones if that’s what your heart (and the season!) desires!
As a D.I.Y/budget bride before that’s what it was called, I understand the need for value and wallet friendly flower options. While of course I value my time, my flowers, and my product, I also know one thing for sure: if you use what’s in season, you’ll get the best prices around. If what I’m growing matches what you want, and you don’t have your heart set on that specific flower that only grows half the world away at the time of your wedding, then you’ll be a match to the lower end of my prices. If it’s winter, or it’s off season for what you want, well…then you’re looking at the upper end of my prices. In any case, if you like an eclectic, creative style that reflects the season, then I’m confident we’ll be able to create beautiful and unforgettable flowers for your special day.
- January – April: I will need to source out. I can often get locally grown greenhouse flowers April-May, and I try to source direct from other flower farmers whenever possible. Most flowers are available if we go far enough afield, so let’s talk!
- May: lilacs and bulb flowers and flowering branches and, depending on the weather, peonies and anenomes.
- late May – June: peonies! also orlaya, delphinium, larkspur, sweet william, salvia, lupine, anenome, snapdragons, clematis, eryngium, veronica, iris, various perennials.
- July: snapdragons, early dahlias, daisies, rudbeckia, early sunflowers, phlox, lilies, zinnias, hydrangea, various perennials.
- August: DAHLIAS. And a bunch of other stuff, including hydrangea. But if you’re getting married, it’ll be all about dahlias.
- September: more DAHLIAS, hydrangea, and a bunch of other stuff. Flowering kale will start, as well as artichokes and crabapple branches, as well as heirloom chrysanthemum towards the end of the month.
- October: is tricky! This is our month of frost, so depending on when it happens I could have dahlias or it will be whatever I can source out plus heirloom chrysanthemums, which are gorgeous and not the same kind of mums that you buy at the big box stores.
- November: possibly heirloom chrysanthemums, but mostly outsourced flowers.
- December: all things evergreen mixed with outsourced elements.
If you book your wedding or event early enough, I can also make sure what I’m growing fits what you’re looking for!
