This may seem like a more personal way out of writing a thank you note, but it is not a substitute.
Giving your thanks in person does not replace a gracious Thank you card. Those who attended your wedding and reception did so because they care about you, so please take a few moments to let them know that you appreciated their support, kindness and generosity. It is perfectly fine to hand deliver the note.

Instead of buying flowers that have been shipped all over the country look for local options. Maybe your community has a community garden that you can pick flowers from. Some parks that have Rose Gardens allow you for a small fee to cut roses. Take a visit to your local farmers market and talk with the flower vendors, you can usually find beautiful arraignments for the fraction of the cost of going thru a florist. Find out if there are any u-pick flower farms, especially if your community has some u-pick fruit farms.
