                                                How To Have A "Green" Wedding
                                                          By Tiffany R. Wright

  A wedding can be an ultimate exercise in overindulgence. We spare no expense, or assault on the
environment, to ensure that our wedding day is perfect. More and more, we are becoming aware of
how our actions can effect the environment and more brides are looking for ways to have their perfect
day while still demonstrating environmental and social consciousness. Here are few ways to make your
wedding “green.”

The Venue

 The venue is one of the easiest and more obvious ways to go green – marry outdoors!! This
eliminates the need for electricity and allows you and your guests to appreciate the beauty of natural
surroundings. To make this comfortable for your guests, you should consider marrying during a time of
year when the climate is comfortable. No matter the time of year, nature provides the perfect backdrop
for a wedding. In the spring, you have beautiful new blooms and in the fall, you have an array of
oranges, reds, and browns to work with.

 If outdoors is not an option, choose a site that will benefit from your event rental fee such as a nature
sanctuary, museum, art gallery or school.

The Dress

Thanks to designers like Adele Wechsler, even your wedding dress can be green!! The gowns are
made with organic hemp and silk materials and will be available in Fall 2008. The Olivia Luca Design
Studio, where YOU design your own dress, also offers organic fabrics.

 Green Dresses may not work for those brides dreaming of a big beautiful ball gown as the emphasis in
on simplicity with eco-friendly dresses.


 There are several ways to be eco-conscious in this area. You can ask your caterer to use organic,
locally grown produce, free range/organic meats, locally brewed beer and organic wine. You should
also work with your caterer to avoid over-catering, preparing substantially more food than what is

necessary. If you have leftovers, you can donate them to a local food bank, homeless shelter or soup

You can also insist on using washable dinnerware and avoid disposable napkins, glasses, plates, etc.


 In lieu of traditional favors, make a donation in your guest’s name to an eco-friendly charity. You can
also give favors that are helpful to the environment, such as having trees planted in your guest’s honor,
notes written on plantable paper or give tree seedlings that your guests can plant in their gardens.


 Ask your florist about using locally grown flowers – they travel less, provide local jobs for your
community and arrive fresher. If you must have a bloom that is only grown internationally, insist on fair
trade/organic flowers. A little known secret of the flower industry is that flowers are such a high value
crop that they are often doused with dangerous, potentially cancer causing, chemicals to make them
perfect. The conditions for workers in the international flower market are deplorable with several of
them being exposed to dangerous chemicals, long hours and extremely hard labor.

 If you are skipping the florist and doing your own flowers, the online wholesaler Organic Bouquet
offers organic blooms.

Invitations & Stationery

 You could skip invitations altogether and opt for an Evite. However, most brides will be unwilling to
part with paper invitations and in that case, I recommend using recycled paper for your invitations and
using soy or vegetable based ink for printing. There are companies such as Naturally Ever After that
offer 100% natural, recycled invitations and printers (try Greener Printer) that print using eco-friendly

 You can also cut down on unnecessary enclosures by posting directions and asking guests to RSVP
on your wedding website or by telephone.

 Programs are not a necessary wedding component, but if you must have them, opt for recycled paper
and only provide one per couple rather than one per guest. The same is true for menu cards.

 Instead of escort cards, you could write or paint your guest’s names and seating assignments onto
frosted votives. Or you could write/paint their names onto ribbons tied to organic flower stems. Another
option is to have a large, framed poster with seating arrangements rather than individual cards.


 Unfortunately, hybrid limos are not yet available but there are still a few eco-friendly options for your
wedding day. The best option would be to choose a site that eliminates the need for transportation by
having the ceremony and reception all in one place. If that is not possible, choose ceremony and
reception sites that are within walking distance of one another or travel by horse and buggy!

 This is one category where everyone can participate. Popular culture has been flooded with
information on the diamond industry lately. Movies like “Blood Diamond” and music artists such as
Kanye West have publicized the violent conditions under which diamonds are mined. Fortunately, you
can avoid such diamonds by ensuring that the diamonds used in your wedding rings are conflict-free.
You can also ensure that the gold used in your rings is recycled.

                                          Tips for a Green Wedding
                                             By Mary Hubbard

 Of the number of women who are getting engaged and married today, 45% are using the
environmentally friendly method of tying the knot. This has been reported as the results of a survey
conducted online by a 2009 Internet survey conducted by David's Bridal. Not exactly a statistic yet, the
latest in trends is expected to continue and caterers, florists, Djs, honeymoon vacation spots and
drivers as well as the wedding planner are becoming more green aware.

When one considers there are approximately 2.5 million nuptials exchanged each year, the current
trend is that a small amount are going green by the evidence of the trash from one single wedding. The
green wedding have at least one thing in common when it comes to conserving the earth's resources
and that is the reduction of trash.

Green - Why for Weddings?

The dream wedding can produce about 200 tons of CO2 per wedding and even the simplest wedding
will produce about 110 tons.

Green wedding are considered to be an omen of the way the bride and groom will live later. This also
has an effect on the guests at the wedding as well as the family members. Everyone there will have
more of an understanding of how to accomplish going green. This can be a great wedding subject of
the guest and set the example for how to go green at home thus preserving and respecting the wonder
of nature all around us.

The best way of saving money at a wedding is to plan a green wedding. The engagement ring and the
wedding ring do not have to be brand new. Heirloom diamonds passed down through the family will
work. Checking at your local thrift store or an estate sale can allow the couple to exchange old
fashioned rings during their wedding. There are many rings that are gorgeous that can be purchased
this way and save you a good deal of money.

At what point do you begin to plan a green wedding?

Those who are fashion conscious and money savvy as well as those conscious of going green will
allow the leftovers from their wedding to be donated to shelters for battered and abused women and
children. They will plant trees as a tribute to the wedding, their new found relatives and the guests who
have come to enjoy their special day. Instead of gifts they ask that the wedding guests make a
contribution to their favorite charity in honor of their wedding.

Use garden flowers and wildflowers as the wedding décor and for the bouquets.

Just as you were taught when you were a child, if you go camping or anywhere else you go, leave the
area as if you have never been there, the green wedding is the same as a clean wedding. The
celebration should not leave tell-tale signs of your celebration for others to clean up. From the
engagement to the honeymoon clean should be the motto.

The wedding invitations do not have to be made of paper. There are websites, for instance,

                                              Presented by Daniel Toriola and that are online invitations created and sent as well.

Green wedding gifts:

* Have no "blood diamonds". * Decrease their carbon footprint when the wedding is over. * Can be
helpful donations to various causes as a remembrance of their wedding. * Are not as luxurious as
others. * Are more energy efficient.

In general those who choose green nuptials and honeymoons will be showing that they respect the
environment and they will have less expense than others across the nation.
