Indie Wed favorites - continued (I can't stop!)

Another highlight of my trip to IndieWed was Pollen. I had a chance to chat briefly with owner, Lynn Fosbender, who was just as nice as can be! I decided that her bouquets (see the pictures!) made me want to walk down the aisle again!

Pollen is a local Chicago florist that does custom floral designs. As you can see by the photos, their designs are beautiful!

What makes their bouquets even more spectacular is that they are eco-friendly. Pollen focuses on using organic, locally grown flowers, as well as Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance certified flowers.

As noted in Kate Harrison's excellent resource, The Green Bride Guide, conventionally grown flowers have a whole host of issues that would make any eco-conscious bride cringe. Pollen is the ideal florist if you're planning a green wedding..... or if you just love gorgeous flowers!

P.S. Be sure to check out the Pollen blog!


  1. Pollen made the floral arrangements for our wedding and we loved them. I've worked in flower shops for over ten years and Lynn has always been one of my favorite designers because her innovative arrangements.

    It's no surprise Pollen was a hit at Indiewed

  2. Lynn's work is definitely wonderful - I'll bet your wedding was beautiful!

  3. awesome looking arrangements. in my opinion, two of the most difficult things to hire for are the flowers and the photography. anyone who is good AND shows up is a treasure!

  4. Those are gorgeous. I love the purple and dusty blue color combination.
