Flowers for a tiny wedding in Georgia
The global pandemic and resulting social-distancing policies put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19 have ruled out most large gatherings and a lot of travel. Small weddings have sprung up everywhere, with couples deciding that postponing big weddings doesn't have to mean postponing marriage. Here's an example of a small July wedding in Georgia, using all locally grown flowers that I sourced from a local flower farm. The sweet bouquet, the collar for the dog guest, and the compote centerpiece create festive and affordable decor for an intimate backyard microwedding. Using local, seasonal flowers and designing without floral foam keeps these wedding florals sustainable and ecofriendly.
The green and white hues of the bouquet complement the brocade fabric of the vintage gown.
Using a mercury glass compote dish for this centerpiece plays off of the vintage vibe of the gown, and using similar seasonal flowers in the bouquet and centerpiece maintains a cohesive look during the event. Small weddings can still be stylish!

Flowers have been used to celebrate life's important occasions for centuries. Even in the midst of a global health crisis, couples are getting married and celebrating with their closest family members. As much as I love a good dance party wedding reception, personal and intimate small weddings have a special place in my heart. I'd love to connect with you about designing flowers for your small wedding.
