Green, Eco-Friendly Wedding Flowers

Eco-Friendly Wedding Centerpieces 2The great thing about a green wedding, is not only are you showing Mother Nature a little extra love on your wedding day, it’s also a little easier on your pocket!

Local Materials
Request your florist to check in your area to see if there are any local greenhouses growing commercial grade flowers. Be open to what’s available in colours and varieties. Local = less world wide shipping + supports your local economy. Win, win!

On-Site Materials
Ask your florist if they are open to designing the floral arrangements for your wedding using some of the naturally occurring flora in your area. Certain times of the year may be better than others to find quality outdoor flowers and other materials. Trust your florist’s advice, eye for design, and years of experience. Also, sometimes quantity can not always be guaranteed: weather happens! So, work with your florist in advance to come up with Plan B.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Centrepieces
Think re-purpose! Even recycled containers can be easily concealed or up-cycled to suit many different wedding themes. Simply paint them or completely cover them with leaves. Potted plants can also make great table centrepieces. Go super green by using trios of ‘Veggie Patch’ or ‘Herb Garden’ plants that your guests can take home with them. Have your florist arrange them for you to add that extra visual appeal! ; )
