Green Weddings

Green is on the rise in society today and there is no exception when it comes to weddings. Being an eco-friendly bride not only is good for the planet but also gives you a chance to show your guests how much you care about our Earth. Some ideas to make your wedding more eco-friendly include:

  • Minimize the amount of driving your guests will need to do. Have your ceremony and reception in the same location.
  • Donate any leftover food to the homeless shelter, rather than throwing it away.
  • Give eco-friendly favors:
    • Give a charitable gift certificate, donate to a great charity organization in your guests' names.
Leave these at each guests' place at the table
    • Give your guests a tree to plant

  • Use eco-friendly vendors, such as caterers who use local ingredients from your local farmers.
It is so important to give back to our magnificent planet that provides so much for us. Here are a few more eco-friendly ideas for the philanthropist in you.
