Green Wedding

How to Have a Smashing Green Wedding

By Wendi Garcia

A green wedding is an Eco-chic wedding that is also elegant and classy.
Most brides who wish to get married the green way do not want to sacrifice beauty and elegance. After all, this is the most important day in their lives and they want it to be as memorable as possible. If you are thinking of having this kind of wedding, let this guide enlighten you on how to have a smashing green wedding that you, your groom, and your guests would love.

Venue

Holding the wedding outdoors is one of the best ways to have an eco-chic wedding. Not only do you get to bask yourself under the wonderful warmth of the sun and enjoy the light cool breeze of the wind, you also get to reduce energy consumption. Of course, you need to hold the wedding at daytime so you do not need to use lighting for the event anymore. State parks, gardens, nature preserves, beaches, and zoos are some of the ideal choices to consider.

Now, if you really want to have a romantic evening wedding, just see to it that you use soy candles, which burn cleaner and longer than traditional wax candles. Candles help reduce use of electricity and at the same time, create a romantic atmosphere for this special occasion. Also, it is advisable to hold the ceremony and reception at the same place to reduce fuel consumption.

Invitation

Minimize paper waste by sending out save-the-date emails. Use 100 percent recycled paper for the invitation. Also, do not use too many paper pieces for the invitation. A one- or two-card invitation is more than enough to contain important details about the event.

Wedding dress

Buy from a vintage shop, wear your mother's gown, or look for a dress made with natural fiber. All these things can help you dress the part for your wedding day. For the jewelry and accessories, you can do the same thing or you can raid your mom's or grandmother's jewelry box.

Ring

Exchange rings made of environmentally-conscious precious metals such as recycled gold or platinum. You can also opt for unique handcrafted wooden rings that would surely give the feel of extraordinary in your wedding day.

Makeup

Opt for make up that uses natural and organic ingredients and those that do not conduct testing on animals.

Flowers

Buy flowers for bouquet or decoration from organic farms. Organic farms make use of local and seasonal wildflowers and organic ways in raising up these flowers.

Food

It is the same thing for the food. Hire caterers that would serve local and organically raised meat, vegetables, and fruits for the buffet or sit-down meal. Rent dishes, silverware instead of using disposable ones. For outdoor weddings, you can use biodegradable dishes and flatware like tropical leaves.

Favors

Stunning favors for an eco-chic green wedding include mini flower pots, potted topiaries, flower packet seeds, recycled bags, soy candles, and organic soaps.

Having a green wedding does not mean you should sacrifice beauty and class. With eco-chic weddings being all the rage these days, you can have a beautiful environmentally friendly wedding that you and your future spouse will both enjoy.
