Eco Friendly Wedding IdeasEmail this post to a friend.
With the current news and scientific information coming out about global warming, it’s no surprise that more and more people are becoming aware of our effects on the planet. Almost everything now has a “Go Green” counterpart making it not only easy to save the planet, but also trendy. One of the largest trends coming out of the green movement is eco friendly wedding ideas. For an event that only lasts a day, the waste created from a wedding can take longer to decompose than most other events. Think about it; plastic cups, champagne bottles, electricity used for DJs and lighting as well as gasoline used to get from the ceremony to the reception. There’s a lot of energy and natural resources that go into a wedding. If you or someone you know is getting married soon, here are a couple of ideas that can make the event a bit more eco friendly.
Before the Wedding
There’s a lot of planning and preparation that goes into a one-day celebration. Start off on the right food and go green from the beginning. Start the process by sending out recycled wedding invitations. Millions of trees are cut down year after year to create paper, a process that not only decreases the trees on our planet but also pollutes the air with its production. Use recycled paper from eco friendly stores.
During the Wedding
Consider the venue. Having a wedding outdoors will not only cut down energy consumption but are beautiful. Traditional spaces have many limitations and can be costly. Hotels, ballrooms, and other indoor venues also consume tons of electricity as well as water. There are plenty of options for couples getting married. Botanical gardens, farms, and fields make for enchanting destinations for weddings. On top of that, the great outdoors can accommodate any number of people, rather than being bound to a definite number when holding a wedding indoors.
The best part about having such a unique wedding is the options guests have for gifts both during the wedding and anniversary gift ideas. Everyone can get creative!
There are plenty of other options out there to cut down energy consumption and waste to create an eco friendly wedding. Everything from the wedding dress to the catering company can be green and support the ecosystem. Anything can become a bit greener. Just consider the options!
