Slow Flower Wedding
Katie and Jeff were married in Price Edward County and knew the slow flower option was the direction they wanted to go. They employed the help of Sas and couldn’t have been happier with the results.
Here is some thoughts from Katie on her experience going the farm to table route.
1. Why did choose Floralora? Did sustainability and supporting local farmers influence your decision? I did a lot of research for flowers for our wedding, and I knew right away it was going to be a DIY job. Finding and supporting a local florist was important to us and since our wedding was in PEC, Floralora was a no brainer. learning about sustainable and slow-grow flower farming really solidified that this was the best choice for us. We weren’t entirely aware of the impact of the industry and were glad to learn of what Sas at Floralora was doing.
2. How was the experience? The experience was great! I sent Sas some inspiration photos and specs of what I wanted and she sent me some options. There were options for her to do all or a portion of the arrangements, but since I was doing DIY, I ordered buckets in a specific colour palette. Of course, because of how the flowers are grown there can be less of a guarantee for specific flowers, so for this option I had to keep an open mind. For example, I would have really liked Dahlias but they just weren’t in season yet. The flowers we got were so beautiful though! I got to work with flowers I wouldn’t have thought of initially, and was proud to be honouring what the local land and climate was giving us.
3. Would you encourage other couples to use a flower farm? I would absolutely recommend others to explore flower farms in their area. While you may not get that exotic or out-of-season flower you thought you wanted, there is so much more out there to explore.
