Planning a Green Wedding, Part 2


With Earth Day coming up next week, I’ve been able to pick up new ideas to add to my original blog post, January 29, 2008, “Planning a Green Wedding”. Try these tips if you are working with a couple who wants to incorporate environmentally friendly elements into their wedding:

  • Find a bridal shop that sells wedding dresses of bamboo fabric, hemp silk or organic cotton and locate stores that sell vegan shoes.
  • Hold the wedding and reception in the outdoors in the daytime to eliminate the need for electricity and lighting.
  • Have the wedding and the reception in the same location or within walking distance. This will cut expenses for your bride by eliminating the need to decorate multiple sites and her guests will save money on gas by not having to drive to another location.
  • Use soy-based pillar candles in glass hurricane lamps or bowls of colorful candies or fruit instead of traditional flowers as centerpieces.
  • Select wedding favors that are useful after the event.
