On July 31st, Chelsea Clinton wed her longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky. All you have to do is type “Chelsea Clinton Wedding Bouquet” into the Internet search field and up pops hundreds of posts about her choice of organic and natural flowers.

This is great news! It reflects a cultural shift among younger brides to request “green flowers” from their floral designers and event planners.

According to celebrity floral designer Jeff Leatham in the Aug. 16th issue of People, the bride and groom asked for “a lot of organic flowers: limelight hydrangeas, white roses, green parrot tulips.”

Leatham shared more floral details in an interview with US magazine: “It was very important [to Chelsea] to keep it organic and natural…The theme, floral wise, was organic, clean, simple and elegant.”

Chelsea carried ”a beautiful, clean, simple ball of Gardenias. The men had Freesia boutonnières,” Leatham added.

Chelsea’s flower choices are an inspiration for brides and their designers everywhere. On your special day, it’s even more important to let your flowers reflect your values and personal style. Organically-grown blooms are indeed the most soulful and sustainable choice!
