The desire to live a green lifestyle and to be eco-friendly has invaded the wedding world. Many couples are seeking out ways to keep their wedding environment friendly. One of the biggest wastes that comes from wedding planning is paper. Instead of traditional paper invitations consider sending out digital invitations or save the dates. There are also many stationary companies that have more eco-friendly options such as using recycled paper or even using materials that incorporate seeds into the invitation, so your guests can plant the invitation instead of throwing it in the trash.
Incorporating the Earth in your wedding can not only be a great way to keep the environment safe, but can be a great way to educate your guests about eco-friendly options they can use every day. Replace your dinnerware with compostable or recyclable plates and utensils. There are many companies that make well-designed settings that are environmentally friendly. Instead of booking a venue at an expensive hall or hotel, consider your local park or nature preserve. This is a great way to bask in the great outdoors during your special day and also contribute to maintaining nature in your local area.
Your wedding is a special day where you can combine your shared interests with your love for one another. Choosing a specific wedding style to incorporate into your big day can help figure out what direction you want to go towards when it comes to decor and choosing vendors. Plus, your theme could land your wedding day on many future bride’s Pinterest boards.
