Finding the perfect wedding bouquet can be tricky, especially if you want to source your flowers sustainably. While working with a local florist is a great option, many florists are not able to provide eco-friendly flowers grown in the United States. The good news for brides-to-be who want to green their bouquets is that you can now order affordable sustainable wedding bouquets online from some amazing florists with artistic flare. Here are four great examples of summer wedding bouquets made entirely from American-grown pesticide-free flowers that can be delivered to your door in days.
The Blushing Garden Wedding Bouquet
The Blushing Garden Bouquet retails for $69 and mixes roses, dahlias and astilbe to create a romantic, lush vintage-inspired arrangement. This design is offered by Primal Flower, which specializes in bespoke garden-style arrangements using premium cut California garden flowers and repurposed and recycled glass.
Orchid, Lisianthus & Succulent Design
The Orchid, Lisianthus & Succulent Design blends purple phaelenopsis orchids and succulents into a stunning tropical arrangement, perfect for a destination wedding in Hawaii. At $85, this exotic looking wedding bouquet is a steal. This bouquet is sold by Growing Wild, which has been owned and operated by Lisa Hoven Gallien and Lee Hoven Bakos for 20 years. They run a green business with complimentary container pick up, and an active water conservation program.
Orange Wild Flower
At just $50, the Orange Wild Flower arrangement is perfect for a rustic green wedding. Remove the wildflower design of dahlias, pincushions, freesia, branches, sun kiss, pods, and seasonals to carry down the aisle, and return the blooms to their bark container to place on your sweetheart table. This bouquet is made by Magical Blooms, which is based in Hermosa Beach and has been providing high-end, elegant, one-of-a-kind floral arrangements for 17 years. Their shop is a zero-waste venue, and they use solar tubes to save energy.
Sweet Judy Blue Eyes
The Sweet Judy Blue Eyes bouquet blends a range of textures in cool hues to create a dramatic bouquet that spills over the edge of an 8" tall vase. Crimson & Clover, an events boutique in Baltimore City, offers it for $85. The majority of their fresh cut flowers and potted plants come from local organic growers and Veriflora-certified farms. They also offer a vase recycling program.
