ideas for planning an eco wedding

Tuesday, April 22

happy earth day everyone!

just thought that i'd list a few ways that you can make your wedding or event as green as possible:



wedding dress and attire
the easiest an most eco-friendly choice is to re-use a gown already worn. buying vintage, renting, or wearing your mother's dress is a great way to be environmentally friendly and can be cost conscious, too. or, purchase a once-worn or sample gown from Brides Against Breast Cancer which donates the proceeds to help women with breast cancer. if having a new dress is important to you, consider earth friendly fabrics such as hemp, organic cotton, linen, tencel and silk Check out the options for wedding gowns in natural and eco friendly fabrics at: Conscious Clothing

invitations
eco-friendly tree-free or 100% recycled paper options:

rings
now, you can buy jewelry made from recycled precious metals and stones. and don't forget the possibilities of transforming vintage pieces into radiantly recycled classics.

flowers
choosing a florist where organically grown, in-season, local flowers are used can be a much better earth friendly choice. this will remove the need for long-distance transportation.

centerpieces
table decor can take the form of small perenials or baby bushes that can later by planted by your guests. or if you'd prefer a vessel for the center of your table to hold sea shells or colorful rocks, consider vases made from recycled glass or a bamboo bowl, due to renewable tendencies.

favors
one of the more obvious eco-friendly wedding favor ideas for couples is to give something organic. there are many options if you want to give small trees, seeds, bulbs or plants.
