Here are a few ideas to consider if you are planning an environmentally thoughtful wedding.
Think: Reduce, reuse, and recycle throughout all of your planning and purchasing for your
wedding and reception.
Consider: Your carbon footprint and your guest's when planning transportation. Even
better, hold your wedding ceremony and reception at the same location so you and your
guests can drive less.
Use Historic Venues: Gardens, or natural surroundings for ceremony and reception locations.
Use Music: That is un-plugged, like a string quartet at your wedding ceremony and reception,
and use less energy.
Go Local: By using locally grown produce and flowers. Organic produce and flowers are even better.
Go Recycled: Use Recycled or post consumer waste paper for all of your stationery needs.
Give Earth Friendly Favors: By skipping the throw-a-way tchnotchkes in lieu of a donation
in your guest's names to an organization you believe in.
Simplify and Appreciate: Share with your guests what brings meaning into your life.
Buy: Items with an eye toward their usefulness after your wedding celebration.
