In this age of environmental consciousness everyone is looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Brides and grooms are not different. Luckily there are various ways to have a wedding that is both beautiful and eco-friendly at the same time. For example:
Potted herbs make great rustic centerpieces or favors that can be taken home by your guests and replanted.
In terms of your reception, serve locally sourced and seasonal food if possible. There is also a wide variety of organic wine and beer available.
Skip the wedding favors, and consider a donation to your favorite charity instead.
Think about purchasing an eco-friendly wedding dress made of organic cotton, bamboo or vintage fabrics. You can find a local seamstress to fashion you a custom dress or you can buy environmentally friendly dresses from designers that specialize in this trend. If neither of these options appeal to you, think about buying a dress that has been previously worn.
These are just a few ideas to make your wedding sustainable and unique!
