Earth Day is upon us and as we prepare to pick wild flowers, flush less and compost more, we should also take a moment to consider what are some easy ways to create a more eco-friendly wedding experience!
Before the wedding day even arrives we have to consider how we will tell our future gift-givers, errrrr…. I mean ‘GUESTS,’ how they can join you in the wedding celebrations!
Eco-Friendly Paper Good Brands such as Paper Culture, Caroline Creates and Artifact Uprising are great alternatives to traditional paper good suites.
Did you know not all food is created equal and some foods require a lot of airline/ground transportation and chemical processing before it lands on your plates. Let us seek out the locally grown organic farms and gardens in our areas for our wedding catering needs and bring awareness to the local produce and selection available according to your region and season.

You can even identify what is sustainably available in your region by month via Sustainable Table
According to Green Bride Guide the average wedding produces roughly 400-600 lbs of waste!
Here are three easy ways to reduce that waste… Purchase or identify 3 different coloured trash receptacles and dedicate one to Recyclables (Aluminium, Glass, Plastics), one for Compostables (Bio-degradables, Paper, Food, Food Soiled Paper), and the other for basic garbage. There are even organisations that will come out and pick up your compostables, such as COMPOST NOW!
4. Wedding Day Style:
Long gone are the eco-friendly burlap sacks of fashion and make way for a new age of amazingly innovative and sustainable fashion designers ready to penetrate even the Wedding Fashion Markets to help further the Fashion Revolution that has taken place this past 3 years. The diverse variety of eco and ethical fashion opportunities in the wedding world is mind-blowingly positive.
