Wedding Ideas: How to Add “Local Flavor” to Your Event

When top wedding planner Lynn Lee of Lynn Lee Fine Weddings & Events introduced the idea of “local flavor” to me, I immediately wanted to get more wedding ideas from her! Here’s how she explains it:

More weddings are seeing international guests than ever before. Sharing, with them, the uniqueness of your host wedding region only adds to your guests’ experience. Couples can incorporate local flavour when planning their welcome gifts, stationary and decor details, just to name a few. Local artisans , products and natural found elements can all be integrated into your design to create a very special destination wedding for your guests that they’re sure to remember.
