Vendor Highlight: Lavish Flora

Last month I attended the Bravo! Wedding Affair held at the historic Embassy Suites in Portland, Oregon. There were so many great Portland vendors there, but a few really stood out to me. One of these was Lavish Flora and the floral designer behind it, Adria Lailer.

The Lavish philosophy involves using locally grown and organic flowers, and also using locally produced arts and products - such as the vases they use. I was blown away by the natural, wild, yet somehow still charming and sophisticated look and feel of Lavish's arrangements.

A bonus on using organic and locally grown products - the scent of the flowers are stronger and you may be able to save some money on not having to ship your flowers! Lavish also has a great list of green/sustainable local Portland vendors on their website - a definite gem for anyone planning a wedding in Portland.

*How are you (or did you/will you) incorporating green or sustainable elements into your wedding?

  1. The green thing I did for my own wedding would be using all antique silver pieces that my mom, aunt and I own for the centerpieces on all of the tables at our reception. We also picked some of our own flowers for the day (this happened when we didn't know if the florist was going to show up!).
