    While I think all these options are beautiful, I would caution everyone to really think about what it is to be “green.”

    Two websites I found that have a sense of this are:

    Take the “green” wedding theme even further, and try to buy your food for the event locally. A great wedding favor is also bulbs or a small tree to be planted- very green and memorable. And all those gift registries that are printed out in stores- send a CD with the list to guests and save some paper. Of course, use recycled CDs.
    Happy Wedding and Earth Week!

    Those cabbage like flowers are exactly what I have been looking for! But never knew what they were called. I have tried searching more now since that it is stated they are called lotus blossoms but can not find any? Anyone have any ideas where I can find out some more info on them?
