We believe that it's important to treat Mother Earth nicely. One major way we can do that is to help you plan a green wedding.
Whether you want to just do a couple of things (organic flowers, recycled-paper invites) or have your entire event embrace environmentally-friendly practices, the articles below will give you some great "green wedding" ideas. You choose!
After the festivities are over, what’s the plan for your wedding flowers? Sure, you can always encourage your guests to take the centerpieces home, but you’ll probably be left with more flowers than you know what to do with. Instead of throwing those pretty petals into the trash, why not make the generous choice to donate them to a great cause?
Consider giving the gift of your wedding gown! Your donation can help a family or bride in need, while also giving your dress new life. And if that's not reason enough to gift your gown, donations are also tax deductible.
If you still have "Bridal Party Gifts" on your wedding to-do list, why not consider giving a gift that gives back? We list 9 Bridal Party Gifts That Keep On Giving (and that they'll actually want!). With this list, it'll be easy to find a gift your bridesmaids will love—even before they know the stories behind them.
Weddings often generate recyclable materials and leftover food that the bride and groom don’t want to take home. Nowadays, you and the caterer can feel good by donating the excess, and recycling plastic bottles, glass, metal and paper. An added benefit is that food donations are tax deductible for either you or the caterer.
When it comes to preserving Planet Earth, everyone wants to do the right thing. But when it comes to planning the Big Day, we worry that being environmentally correct will mean sacrificing our cherished wedding vision. Luckily, you no longer have to wrestle with your conscience to have a celebration that is both beautiful and "green."
