"Also known as an eco-friendly or sustainable wedding, is a celebration where the couple tries to reduce the event's effect on the environment. These days, green wedding ideas are plentiful, with more eco-friendly wedding decorations on the market and greener options for catering, invitations, and more."
Here are some ideas of how to have your big day make a positive impact on the Earth:
Propose using estate jewelry
or instead of hitting up your nearest jeweler, consider reusing or recycling a gorgeous retro ring that will be unique and eco-friendly.
Look for built-in decor
Why bring in decorations if they already exist at your venue? This will save cash for you and resources for the earth—talk about a win-win.
Conscious floral arrangements
If you are having cut flowers, choose seasonal blooms grown locally, or you can use wood flowers, silk to have at home, or rent flowers!
Buy a pre-owned wedding dress
One of the easiest ways to go green with your gown is to buy a used wedding dress. Get the gown of your dreams at a more affordable price and cut down on wedding waste in one go!
Resell or repurpose after the big day
Resell or donate wedding centerpieces or decor rather than trashing it. Want to keep a thing or two? Reuse the items in your home!
Have a well-informed website
Put as much of the necessary information as possible on your wedding website eliminating the need for extra information cards.
