3 Great Flower Ideas for your Micro-Wedding or Elopement

Many couples are being forced to rethink their weddings due to the Corona Virus pandemic.  Lots of couples are opting to elope now and have the celebration later.  Some are planning destination elopements, where they will hike to a beautiful remote place to marry with just themselves and an officiant.  Others will have a micro-wedding with very limited number of dear ones in attendance.  Some are choosing to live stream their ceremonies so extended family and friends can witness the occasion.  New ideas call for new flower plans.  Here are 3 great flower ideas for your micro-wedding or elopement.

Wear Flowers in Your Hair

It might not be practical to haul a bridal bouquet all the way up the mountain.  How about hair flowers instead?  A lovely fresh flower hairpiece is easy to pack, and looks lovely in photos.  If you are planning a live stream wedding, a floral headband or flower crown is perfect, given the tighter focus of a screen.

Wear a Fresh Flower Necklace

A floral necklace is a unique wedding accessory that makes impact.  It is also light, easy to pack, and looks great up close – much like the idea of the floral hairpiece, above.  Necklaces made of dried flowers can be kept indefinitely as a keepsake, and ones made from succulents can be worn for weeks.  Then, the plants can be gently picked off and planted to grow on as a memory of your special day.

A Fabulous Corsage is as Good as a Bouquet!

A gorgeous corsage or flower tattoo is almost as good as a bridal bouquet.  If you are including a few other loved ones in your event, you can get a scaled-back version for them as well.  The best thing about corsages and other floral jewelry is that you can wear it for the whole day – unlike a bridal bouquet that is just meant for the ceremony.
