Locally Grown Flowers
Often, it's not the flower itself but the gas-guzzling delivery truck or plane that comes with a heavy carbon footprint. Flowers imported from Bali might seem exotic, but they have to be shipped an awfully long way to be center stage at your wedding (unless you're one of the lucky people who lives in Bali, of course). Choose instead to feature locally grown flowers in your bouquet and centerpieces. For example, spring nuptials in Wisconsin can incorporate colorful, elegant options such as tulips, daffodils, cherry blossoms and peonies, according to the experts at Martha Stewart Weddings.
