Tips for your Rose Garden Wedding

Choose the Right Rose Garden
Research rose gardens in Vancouver to find the perfect location for your elopement. Consider factors such as accessibility, size, ambiance, and any permit requirements for hosting events. Popular options include the Stanley Park Rose Garden, the Rose Garden at Queen Elizabeth Park, and the VanDusen Botanical Garden.

Check Availability and Obtain Permits
Once you’ve selected your desired rose garden, check its availability for your chosen date and time. Some gardens may require permits for events like weddings or elopements, so be sure to inquire about any necessary paperwork and fees or ask your planner to help.

Plan Your Ceremony Details
Decide on the specifics of your ceremony, including the ceremony site within the rose garden, the timing of the event, and any additional elements such as music, readings, or rituals. Consider whether you want to exchange vows under a pergola, beside a fountain, or amidst a particular variety of roses.

Legal Requirements
Ensure that you fulfill all legal requirements for getting married in Vancouver. Obtain a marriage license from the British Columbia Vital Statistics Agency, and make sure you have any necessary documentation, such as identification and witness information.

Hire Vendors
Depending on your preferences and budget, you may choose to hire vendors such as a photographer, officiant, florist for additional floral arrangements, and a musician for live music. Make arrangements well in advance to secure your preferred professionals.

Personalize Your Ceremony
Infuse your ceremony with personal touches that reflect your relationship and love story. Write your own vows, select meaningful readings or poems, and incorporate symbolic rituals or traditions that resonate with you as a couple.

Prepare for Logistics
Consider logistics such as transportation to and from the rose garden, parking for yourselves and any guests, and any equipment or décor you wish to bring for the ceremony. Ensure that you have everything you need for a comfortable and smooth experience.

Celebrate Afterwards
After your ceremony, take time to celebrate your newlywed status together. Whether you plan a romantic dinner at a local restaurant, a picnic in the park, or a quiet evening at home, savor the joy of your elopement and the beginning of your married life together.

By following these steps and infusing your rose garden elopement with love, meaning, and personal touches, you can create a magical and memorable experience that celebrates your unique relationship.
