A lot of Brides may want to know, how can they plan a Green Wedding to help the environment? Here are some tips from Green Bride Guide http://www.greenbrideguide.com/ to help you:
-Use Plantable Paper Invitations, your guests can place your invitation in the ground and grow flowers in the spring.
-Consider donating your wedding gown after you purchase it or resell it
-Use seasonal flowers for your wedding. Ask your Florist to buy organic and local vs conventionally grown imported flowers that are toxic to people and the planet.
-Choose soy, palm or beeswax candles
-Use wine corks to hold your place cards, which can also be plantable
-Steer Clear of plastic, disposable favors
-Edible favors hardly ever go to waste( chocolate, candy)
-Instead of favors, make a donation to your favorite charity in honor of each guest
-Personalized seed packets are also great favor ideas
-Ask your caterer to use local and seasonal foods as well as organic foods
-Set up a classy candy buffet as another favor option
-Avoid disposable cameras
-Your wedding planner that is familiar with Green Weddings can help you have a fabulous wedding.
