It is hard to ignore recently that the green is the new white.
There are so many ways that you can reduce your carbon footprint, from getting to the church to favours to even the wedding dress. Some top tips below:
The Venue: How about a state park or a venue that supports Eco-Friendly Weddings.
The Dress: Here there are many options, from using a recyclable dress, from your mother’s weddings dress or shopping for that classic vintage dress.
The Ring: You could look into having your ring made from wood or recycled gold.
Confetti throwing: Why not try tossing flower seeds or petals or even get your guests involved they can blow bubbles.
Catering: Talk to you caterers to arrange organic foods and make sure they have a variety of food to cater for vegetarians.
Bouquets: Make sure your florists support the organic flower farms, and that they use seasonal wildflowers.
Cosmetics: Make sure your beautician brings along products that have natural organic ingredients not to mention that have not been tested on animals.
These are just a taster but for more details; I love this book – Eco-Chic Weddings: Simple Tips to Plan an Environmentally Friendly, Socially Responsible, Affordable, and Stylish Celebration by Emily Elizabeth Anderson in all good bookshops and online.
