You buy your food locally and in season – why not do the same with your event flowers? This fun trend in floral design was first brought to our attention by the fantastic floral design company Local Color Flowers, who we worked with for one of our June weddings. The concept is simple: tell “LoCoFlo” your budget, colors, and favorite flowers (if you have any), and they’ll provide you with in season and locally grown picks for your event! Your favorites may not be in season at the time of the wedding, but Local Color will provide you with arrangements that still represent your style.
If you’d like to apply this sustainable flower idea to your own life (or for your event), you can follow this fabulous chart Bayside Bride put together. It has all of the information you need to make seasonal choices about the flowers for your big day!
