Green Your Wedding: Decorations

Choose locally grown flowers Weddings inspire and delight us, but these sacred events have grown into resource-sapping affairs. If you're wondering how to pull off your dream celebration without a huge carbon footprint and an empty bank account, refer to this week's tips to help you work some ecofriendly wedding magic.

Tip #2: Go Natural 

Exotic floral arrangements are expensive and less kind to the earth than local wildflowers or potted plants. If roses are a must, opt for sustainably grown, organic blooms. When the party's over, send the flowers home with guests as favors or donate them to a hospital or nursing home. If your celebration is in an outdoor location such as a national park, keep decorations simple to let attendees enjoy the beauty of nature.
