        Weddings

        Wedding Flowers

        We love to design flowers for our Brides…  Email blooms@dolliesfarm.com with your ceremony date.  We will set a time for you to visit the farm and choose any specific colors or flowers you are interested in using in sprays, bouquets, boutonnieres, etc.  If you aren’t flower specific, that works too…  we promise to use what looks best in the field on the date of your wedding that fits into your color palette and style.  So, have no fear if you feel like you don’t know flower names, you don’t need to. That’s what you have us for!

        Some of our brides enjoy setting a Bride’s Bouquet event at Dollie’s.  The wedding party is treated to a glass of wine or lavender lemonade depending on the Bridal Package purchased, while walking the fields as the Bride chooses the flowers she desires in the bouquet.  Testimonies from this experience range from “this was the most relaxing part of my bridal week”,  “I am so glad we did this, walking the lavender fields took all my stress away”,  “it was so fun having my bridesmaids and my mom help choose the flowers as we walked the fields together”. Bride’s Bouquet Events include a gift of lavender products for the Bride.
