Most of us are concerned about the environment and if you are planning your wedding, there is plenty that we can do to make it an eco-friendly one.
First, let’s pin a couple of things down. Instead of going for the conventional type of wedding whereby you book a wedding ballroom in a classy hotel, spending tens of thousands of (hard-earned) dollars on glamorous stuff that you can live without, why not think about renting a cool eco-friendly party bus for your guests (and yourself) and then organize the wedding with eco-friendly theme in an eco-friendly environment?
Keeping things down to the bare minimum could mean downplaying some things without compromising on the essentials.
For instance, decorating the wedding reception area with lots of flowers and plants is a good idea. Speaking of plants and flowers, we found this website that sells beautifully decorated branches and stuff that is perfect for wedding. They’re called Nettleon Hollow. Some of their decorative pieces can give your wedding reception an incredible green vibe!
You can also opt to turn your wedding reception into some sort of donation drive for environmental-friendly organizations or research centers. While you are at it, hand out some brochures to educate your wedding guests too. We are sure the research centers can do with a little bit of extra funding from your generous guests.
What about the expensive wedding dress? There are fantastic designers and tailors who can recycle stuff and turn them into your dream wedding gown in weeks. This will also help save the environment and keep to the eco-friendly wedding theme. These designers make use of used clothing, dye them and re-style the materials into a magically-woven gown to the design of your choice.
Another way to have an eco-friendly wedding reception is to have it in a natural setting, like a park, beach or a far-off rented mansion where you are surrounded by all things natural and green. The best part about having an eco-friendly wedding is that you get the privacy that you want instead of the conventional hustle and bustle. A place like the Gretna Green sounds fantastic.
