It's Not Easy Being Green - Green Weddings

Eco-friendly Bamboo Coasters
     Having an eco-friendly wedding is a hot topic with couples planning their big day.  More and more choices are available when it comes to vendors and supplies.  Going green does not only meaning using eco-friendly products, it means incorporating recycling and reusing supplies.  It's not all about going organic, but also about using products that are locally grown.  Below are some eco-friendly bridal tips:

Bridal Attire:  Choose natural fibers such as silk, cotton or hemp or consider wearing a second-hand gown.

Catering:  Choose a caterer who uses locally grown fruits and vegetables and meats that have been organically raised.  Choose alcohol from local wineries and breweries, consider having a vegan menu.

Photographers:  Using digital reduces waste and the use of chemicals.  Be sure to ask for digital images.

Invitations:  Use invitations made from recycled papers or natural fiber paper that has flower seeds which can be planted.

Decor:  Use fresh, seasonal flowers and greenery from local growers.  Add stones and rocks as part of your decor.  Potted plants are easy to transport from reception to banquet and soy candles  are a romantic energy efficient way to provide lighting.

Favors:  Seedlings, plants or seed packets can be used as favors.  Many companies offer products made from bamboo or recycled material.  Many of these items can be personalized.

Transportation:  Of course you should provide transportation for your guests.  Consider one big bus instead of 20 cars or using a horse and buggy will completely eliminate emissions.
