Want to keep your wedding’s features as local as possible? Here are 4 great ideas to get you started…
1. FARM TO FORK Forks & Fingers Catering by Design brings the flavors of the season to each of the meals they create. By using fresh, local ingredients in their menus, they support farmers, open space and local economies. Not to mention, farm fresh just tastes good!
2. STAMPED, SEALED, DELIVERED Boston-based graphic designer Chelsey Emery makes customizeable return address stamps in a variety of cheery fonts that will give your invitations a special, made in MA, touch. $25
3. REGIONAL REGISTRY A local mindset can extend well beyond the details of your wedding day. With a host of online registry companies allowing you to add products from many stores, it’s easy to include your friendly neighborhood artisans, like Farmhouse Pottery of Vermont, as you build your home.
4. HIKE FOR TWO Just because it doesn’t fit in your kitchen cabinet, doesn’t mean you can’t register for it. Add a household membership to a great organization like The Norman Bird Sanctuary for a year of hiking like the love birds you are, and championing a good cause, too. $65
