How to have a “green” wedding

The choices you make for your wedding can have a big impact on the environment.  But you can have a gorgeous wedding and protect the environment at the same time by considering these:

  •  A local venue so your guests won’t have to travel
  • Having an outdoor wedding to reduce the use of cut flowers and decorations
  • Having the wedding and the reception in the same location
  • Venders who are certified “green”
  • Wedding invitations made from recycled paper  – or better yet, create a wedding website and send invitations by email  (check out  our  post about Greenvelope)
  • A local flower designer and flowers that are grown locally and that will be in season for the wedding
  • A digital photographer who is certified “green” and have your proofing gallery online, or better yet, have your photo album online
  • A gown that has been used before, or donate the gown after the wedding
  • A certified “green” caterer and locally grown organic ingredients
