What our Customers Say

Petals galore! Most searches for flower petals turn up synthetic petals, but we needed natural ones for the flower girl to toss at our farm wedding. Flyboy has a range of color and price options, and lots of informative detail about how many petals you might need for what you're trying to use them for. Shipping was quick and easy after ordering. Highly recommend ordering from them!."

How to Plan a Sustainable Wedding

Posted by Posted by Flyboy Naturals | Guest Writer Megan - BookMint Chicago on

If you are overwhelmed right now during the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), you’re not alone. This is a stressful time. And it’s not your fault that wedding planning is uncertain right now.
We do however want to continue to be a resource for your planning – whether your wedding is postponed or you are in the early stages of planning. With that, here is our advice on how to plan a sustainable wedding.


From the aqua abyss of the Aegean sea and the lush depths of the Amazon to the blazing sunsets over the rim of the Grand Canyon and the snow-capped top of Mount Everest, Mother Nature has done her best to bless us abundantly.

It’s only right to return the favor by taking care of all we’ve been given. We can start protecting these gifts by being as environmentally conscious as possible in all aspects of our lives.

Planning a sustainable wedding is the perfect way to honor Mother Nature and to reduce the carbon footprint of your big day. Below, we’ve highlighted several elements you can effortlessly make environmentally friendly. From décorto couture, let these fabulous ideas inspire you as you plan your very best eco-chic celebration!

Innocuous Invitations

It’s only natural to want your invitation to reflect the style and feel of the celebration to come. The varieties offered are abundant and there’s a unique invitation for every wedding. Luckily, sustainable invitations are no exception. Gorgeous, environmentally friendly invitations are available in a variety of recycled materials and styles that will not only reflect your personal taste, but your eco-friendly nature as well.

Looking to take being green one step further? Consider purchasing invitations that serve a dual purpose, like these wedding invitations from Botanical Paperworks made from seed paper. These remarkable invitations can be planted by your guests whenever they choose and will eventually grow into delicious herbs or colorful wildflowers. How about that for a delightful gift of gratitude for Mother Nature?

Conservationist Couture

Almost every bride dreams of her wedding gown before it’s chosen.

Maybe your dream dress is exquisitely designed with intricate lace detail or perhaps it’s an elegant snow-white, a-line gown of contoured satin. Whatever your dream dress may look like, finding eco-chic couture may be easier than you think.

Wearing a secondhand gown is the premiere way to honor your eco-conscience without sacrificing your greatest gown desires. Not only are secondhand bridal shops easily found in your nearest bustling city, second hand wedding gowns are available at the tip of your fingers, just waiting to be chosen. Buying pre-loved isn’t just eco-friendly, it’s also economical — you may be able to save thousands of dollars on high-end couture.

As an additional incentive, find a seamstress or tailor near you who can help adjust the fit of your gown while keeping a local small business thriving. 

Deliberate Décor

When you begin considering the design concept of your wedding, it may be difficult to determine how to make such a large celebration environmentally friendly. According to an article by BBJ Linen that focuses on wedding trends for 2020, choosing vendors that understand their responsibility to our planet is a fantastic place to start.

Whether it’s by choosing an eco-friendly florist or a linen company that understands the impact of plastic and chemicals on our environment, every step taken counts. The essential element to making all of your décor as sustainable as possible begins and ends with the practices of your vendors. 

Better To Gather Events 

Clean Cuisine

When planning the menu for your big day, locally sourced, ethically raised or grown menu items are the perfect choice to help reduce your carbon footprint. Consider a menu created entirely of flavorful and fresh, farm-to-table ingredients that will spoil your guests as well as showcase a local farm.

Begin your evening with charcuterie stations that incorporate local artisan cheeses, sweet raw honey, crusty baguettes and ethically raised meats.

For dinner, serve creamy soup crafted from roasted root vegetables, followed by a salad of crisp, recently plucked greens that are topped with caramelized fennel and herbed dressing, made with freshly cut dill. As a main course consider mouthwatering, grass-fed and ethically raised filets, paired with a side of honey glazed carrots to complete this delicious and sustainable meal. As a note, please don’t neglect to have vegetarian and vegan options available. 

There is no time like the present to begin protecting our planet. From small gestures like recycling your morning coffee cup, to larger ones such as planning an eco-friendly and sustainable wedding, we owe it to Mother Nature to take care of all she has given us.

From the invitations you send to the salad you serve your guests, so many elements of a wedding can have a natural and environmentally conscious twist. The future begins with us and no step is too small to take in preserving our planet.

That's where our rose petals shine.  Our rose petals are grown on our sweet family farm in Oregon.  They are grown with abundant love and great care...they are all natural, Eco-friendly, biodegradable and safe for the planet! Some of our favorite rose petals
