Green Wedding: Eco-Friendly Wedding Ideas
With that state of the environment today, green weddings are on the rise more than they ever have been in the past. Here at When Freddie met Lilly, we agree that the greener your wedding is, the better it is for the environment. From reducing your carbon footprint on the earth to using recycled materials for your wedding, read on below for a few tips to help you have the green wedding of your dreams.
Choose Rings that Are Eco-Friendly
When it comes time to go ring shopping, remember that there are quite a few green jewellers who will help you find an eco-friendly ring for your green wedding. More and more jewellers are going to using recycled gold and gems that are made from fair labour. Choosing an eco-friendly ring is a great step towards having a wedding that not only joins two people who love one another but works towards making the earth a healthy place to live again as well.
Use Vendors Who Are Local
Choosing your Clarise Gown from When Freddie met Lilly is a step in the right direction. However, you also need to shop with local vendors, so that you can not only support your local economy but waste less gas and emit low emissions when it comes to the vendors delivering for you.
Go Digital with Your Photography at Your Green Wedding
If you are wanting to take pictures of the gorgeous Mon Cheri Gown, you were fitted for at When Freddie met Lilly, but still want a green wedding, then digital photography is a must. The reason being, that digital cameras don’t use harsh chemicals, waste paper, and rolls of film to develop. Another reason is that you can choose the prints you want printed and leave the rest behind, once again helping to save the environment. Which is the reason you are having an eco-friendly wedding, to begin with.
Make Sure to Use Recycled Paper
Make sure that you use recycled paper to send out wedding invitations and thank you notes. This is a prime way to have an eco-friendly wedding. Make sure that you ask the vendor who is taking care of your invitations to use recycled paper. And if they refuse, move to another vendor instead.
Home Grown Flowers are the Best Choice
For the flowers at your wedding, choose a local florist that grows his flowers organically. They are gorgeous, smell heavenly, and are in tune with the wedding that you are looking to have as well.
Choose Organic Foods
If your wedding is going to be green, then organic foods at the reception are a must. Make sure to ask the food vendor if their food is organic. It tastes better and is healthier to boot.
These are just a few tips and ideas to help you pull off a green wedding. Being green is something that everyone needs to contribute too, and you will be doing your part. Make sure to visit When Freddie met Lilly as well for the rest of your wedding needs.
