Green Your Royal Wedding: The Flowers
As we count down to Friday, we decided to celebrate the nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton by offering royal-wedding-inspired tips. This week, we show you how to green your wedding just like Wills and Kate — even if you're not exactly British royalty.
Tip #3: Choose local, seasonal, potted plants.
Wedding florist Shane Connolly is reportedly using azaleas, rhododendron, euphorbias, beech, wisteria, and lilac to decorate Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. These locally sourced flowers and trees will be donated to charities or replanted after the ceremony. Consider using local, seasonal plants for your own wedding decor, and remember that potted plants can be given to guests as favors.
