A Spooky Harvest Elopement At Home (thanks Covid!)

Caitlin Barrow (Bride) SEATTLE, WA
We had planned to have a 50 person wedding on the Washington coast on 10/31/2020 with neon sign photo backdrop, large garlands on each table, and curtains of lights. It the 31st fell on a Saturday, we wanted a Samhain wedding, and it was a blue moon! But the world had other plans, so in June 2020, we decided to postpone our big party and elope at home. Our original aesthetic was moody, lush, overgrown, rustic, like a feast at a witch's house, but we had to tone it down to make it easy to celebrate with just our parents and officiant. My mom and I did all the flowers ourselves, including a bridal bouquet, a wedding arch, and table decorations for our indoor serving table and the outdoor table ... where the 8 of us ate. I decided to keep it simple and inexpensive and order this single mixed pack of flowers. The roses in the first shipment arrived damaged, but fiftyflowers came to the rescue and made sure I had 2 dozen more roses to use by the day of my elopement. We made the arch from local foraged plants from my yard and tucked flowers into it. We made several full size bouquets, many small ones to tuck into various trinkets, and layered the outdoor table with greens and roses. Overall, fairly easy and stress-free experience both working with fiftyflowers and DIYing my flowers. I intend on DIYing my much larger ceremony (fingers crossed for October 2021) and using fiftyflowers for a much larger order. Show more
