When you attend a wedding as a guest you know you will be fed well. That is because the bride and groom have put a lot of thought into the food.
First and foremost you want food that is grown as locally as possible. Farm-to-table operations work with wedding planners to accommodate this type of cuisine. If you have the option, choose a caterer
This is your chance to find a caterer that serves local food. If you live in the desert you can at least try to get food that is certified organic.
Wedding settings can affect the atmosphere of the ceremony and reception. If you can manage an outdoor location you will have the luxury of natural surroundings. If your wedding is indoors you can bring outdoor natural elements to you and the guests.
Flowers are everyoneís first thought, but what are other ways align your wedding with nature? A willow branch arch can be used over the podium. Centerpieces can incorporate anything from flowers to pine cones to grasses and more.
Plantable Invitations and Favors
