Everywhere you look, there's someone – or something – going green. From the foods we eat to the clothes we wear, green is the hottest trend, and we're glad for it. Living green is not only great for you, but it's also great for our planet. When it comes time to start planning your big day, keep those two things in mind. Not sure how you can green your wedding? Let Daisy-Days.com
help with a few of these fantastic tips on how to have the eco-chic wedding of your dreams. From eco friendly wedding favors to green venues, there are a lot of great ways to have an environmentally friendly wedding!
First off, start out by considering your venue. Having a wedding in an area close to home, or at least close to the homes of your guests, helps to reduce your wedding's carbon footprint. Also, skip the stretch limo SUV to get around on the big day and instead, try shuttling around in a hybrid vehicle, or better yet, a horse drawn carriage (so romantic)!
Next, think about your menu. See if you can work with your caterer to get a menu that has tons of organic or locally grown fruits, veggies, and meats. Not only will you love the taste, but your guests will appreciate the extra time and attention you put into each and every dish. Plus, it's incredibly healthy for both you and your community.
When it comes to the reception, look to use recycled linens or traditional linens and china, rather than anything disposable. Also, adorn each place setting with Eco Friendly Wedding Favors
. Daisy-Days.com has a great selection of Eco Friendly Wedding Favors that are perfect for delighting your guests while adding punch your reception. Try out something fun, like plantable wedding favors or bamboo coasters.
Once you've got the Eco Friendly Wedding Favors
, it's time to look to your floral arrangements. Instead of using fresh cut flowers, use potted blooms that are still growing and send them home with your guests as a thoughtful gift. You could also plant your centerpieces once the occasion has ended in a garden where it'll feel like love can always grow!
