Everything You Need To Know- BLOOM Tulip Festival

This past week my boyfriend and I visited the Instagram famous Abbotsford BLOOM Tulip Festival. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen so many tulips in my life! It was absolutely breathtaking. However, there are a few things I wish I had known before going and that’s what I’m here to tell you about.

My love 😘
One of my favourite tulips there!

Let’s get right into it!

  1. Do NOT wear suede sandal heels like I did. Trust me when I say this. The Tulip field is mud, mud, and more mud. I made the mistake of wearing a nice pair of shoes and had to be very careful! Luckily it was a nice sunny day so majority of the mud was dry, but at the sticky parts I really had to watch where I was stepping. They do have shoe covers available for $2 but realisticallly who wants to walk around and take photos in a pair of bright blue plastic covers?
  2. Wear an outfit that you would be okay getting dirty. This was another mistake I made, WHITE JEANS. Mud and white jeans do not go together y’all. Just wear something that you’d be okay with getting a little muddy. This is if you’re posing for photos inbetween the Tulip rows or happen to get stuck in mud and fall down. We saw it happen, no lie.
  3. Wear sunscreen! Unfortunately I forgot to put sunscreen on and I ended the day with a minor sunburn on my arms. Sunscreen is very important, especially if it’s a scorching hot day!
  4. Bring some mula for treats. There are food trucks at the Tulip Festival and there’s also an eating area. Perfect for a lunch date!
  5. Bring a camera. This is probably obvious but I totally forgot my Nikon when I left the house, so we had to use our iPhones. Although, in the daylight our iPhone quality was pretty good! If you’re going for a more professional shot, definitely bring a better camera.
My fit for the date 🌷
