Planning a green wedding is surprisingly easy you can start with small changes such as using organic products in your wedding cake, to having your perfect dress made from organic cotton. You can now even register online at www.ourgreenweddinglist.com where it provides an online green wedding registry that enables couples to start their married life with a home and garden full of eco gifts, UK handmade and fair trade wedding presents or there are companies such as Good Gifts www.goodgifts.org offering wedding lists in the form of gifts for developing countries.
If this is too much for you then why not try a new idea of Breakaway center pieces using organic flowers to create mini individual bundles of flowers that then gather together to make one large center piece. Each mini bouquet can then be taken home by the guests at the end of the night as favors. This is a great money saver and very eco friendly at the same time.
Get the perfect eco-invites. An invitation sets the scene for a party, so you don’t want to look cheap or tacky, but you also want to keep it eco friendly so why not use recycled or handmade paper and make them yourself. Couples are nowadays even breaking traditions and using electronic invites like Evites www.new.evite.com
If you can create your perfect wedding that treads a little lighter on the planet, then people will remember it and maybe it will inspire some more people to try going Green on their special day.
