Green weddings are becoming more and more popular nowadays, as brides and grooms become more conscious of the carbon footprint they leave behind daily. Although weddings are mainly a single-day event, these gatherings tend to produce a huge amount of waste – from the decorations to the wedding stationery, and even up to the food served in the celebration itself.
Thanks to technology, awareness is spreading all through the nation and more wedding vendors and couples are getting into the practice of being responsible for the carbon footprint that their wedding might leave. Different greener options are available for almost everything on your wedding to-do list.
If you and your partner are thinking of shifting towards the cleaner and greener wedding celebration, here are a couple of ideas that might get your green light bulb on.
Green invitations and stationery.
Double-check with your printer if they carry greener options when it comes to invitations. Recycled paper can be used for the cards and paired with soy-based inks that are 100% biodegradable.
Dual-purpose wedding elements.
Go green and get to cut your budget in half as well with wedding items that are multipurpose for you and your guests. Bridesmaids’ bouquets that serve as the centerpieces for the head table, a dessert table that doubles as wedding favors for the guests, and wedding programs that can be used as fans or containers for biodegradable confetti – these are simple and common examples of how to maximize each item’s worth while minimizing waste.
Rent your entire wedding.
Practically speaking, why spend hundreds of dollars on stuff that you can’t use after the wedding? Renting wedding elements like centerpiece vases, head table backdrops, and even frames to be used for the dessert table or the receiving table outside the venue helps in lessening unnecessary expenditures and maximizing the use of a single item in the long run. You get to have your dream wedding while still having enough money to start your own family and home.
