This is your day to show the ones you love your passion for each other…..and the environment. Here are some options to consider when planning an environmentally friendly wedding.
-Minimize the amount of driving your guests will need to do. Consider having your ceremony and reception in the same building.
-Consider a community venue, such as a museum, historic home, or park, and your fees will support local community efforts.
-Work with an invitation designer who used recycled paper and soy or vegetable-based inks.
-Donate leftover food rather than throwing it out.
-Don’t register for things you don’t need: give your guests the option of giving donations in your name instead.
-Consider a vintage or second hand dress.
-Consider silk flowers instead of fresh cut.
