From earth-friendly wedding receptions to recycled invitations, green weddings are the hot new thing.
Here's how to make your wedding eco-friendly.

Here comes the bride...
...in a gorgeous hemp-silk gown. When it comes to outfitting the bridal party, green options abound. You can:

  • go vintage (and update your look as necessary with tailoring and modern shoes and accessories)
  • pick clothes made from hemp, bamboo, and organic cotton or silk--or find a dressmaker who will make a one-of-a-kind item out of these sustainable fabrics (men's suits and shirts come in organic cotton or wool too)
  • borrow an elegant gown from a stylish friend
  • buy something you'll wear again (and let your bridesmaids do the same)
  • accessorize with a unique recycled purse and/or jewelry
  • use vegetable dyes on your shoes (or go barefoot for a beach wedding)
  • accentuate natural beauty with all-natural makeup
  • donate the dresses to charity after the event

 

Set the stage
Add beauty and style to your wedding décor, naturally. Here's how:

  • opt for organic flowers
  • find a florist who's diligent about recycling packaging and will source locally raised flowers
  • have bridesmaids carry matching purses or silk bouquets instead of cut flowers
  • decorate with branches, dried grasses, grains, greens, berries, or live plants (potted or dried arrangements can double as favors)
  • choose beeswax or soy-based candles over those made with paraffin, a petroleum byproduct
  • arrange to have decorations moved from the ceremony to the reception (if you opt for separate sites)
  • use leaves or other natural objects as place cards
  • throw biodegradable confetti or organic rose petals instead of releasing butterflies
  • donate the flowers to a hospital or rest home at the end of the day

 

Happily ever after...
Begin your new life with a honeymoon that's light on the Earth. <3
