Planning a Green Wedding
If you are environmentally conscious, you’ll want to continue that environmental consciousness to everything that surrounds you–which might include your wedding. With a little planning, you’ll be able to make your wedding as green as possible. Here are a few suggestions for greening up your wedding.
How Can I Be More Green At My Wedding?
First, you need to consider party rentals rather than buying pieces you can discard. Party rental places mean that you can rent nearly everything you need: tables and chairs, candelabras or trellis, and even plates, napkins, tablecloths, and glasses. Instead of being thrown away, all of these items will be used over and over again, which means less trash in the landfill.
You might also want to think about eco-friendly options for your invitations. There are many invitation companies with invitations made from recycled paper, or compostable invitations. You’ll be able to save money as well as feel good about helping the environment.
You can also use pieces for your decorations at your reception that are reused–mason jars for flower arrangements, picture frames, lights, and other decorations could be picked up from other locations or even from your own collection. What a great way to reduce waste!
Finally, to really go green at your wedding, you can set up a recycling station at your reception. That way, anything that can’t be reused can be recycled. Recycling stations encourage everyone to be responsible.
You can encourage a green wedding and reception by finding wedding planners and wedding rental companies that are green-friendly. We can help! When you’re ready to get ready for your big day, why not give us a call at 631.357.3561?
