If you think about it, getting married is all about sustainability. You’re making plans for a long term future that provides the best possible world for you and any potential little yous that might come along.
So, it’s no surprise that in 2017 having a green wedding is more important than ever. So what are the five best ways of looking after Mother Nature this year?
Think about the trees
There’s a lot of admin that goes with a wedding, not least countless invitations. So why not use the technology available and keep it all online. A website and email invitations can be just as stylish.
Keep your wedding miles low by sourcing food and flowers from close by. Plus, seasonal and organic food is a great way to keep things tasty.
There are plenty of eco friendly designers out there for both dresses and suits. And if you choose a gown that you can wear again, then you’ll also be reducing your footprint.
Usable favours are another way of keeping it green. Think about favours that you can plant or at least that won’t end up in the garbage.
Wedding list donations
The wedding gift list is becoming a thing of the past. With most couples already happily set up in homes, a new toaster is not such a good gift. Encourage your guests rather to donate to a charity of your choosing.
