10 Tips for Planning an Eco-Friendly Wedding
- Choose a naturally beautiful location that does not require a lot of décor.(Have you seen our Atrium?)
- Plan a day time wedding and take advantage of natural lighting.
- Use 100% post-consumer material or seeded paper for all your stationary needs.
- Have the ceremony and reception at the same venue to reduce the use of transportation and fossil fuels.
- Use flowers and greenery that is in season and grown locally, organically and pesticide free.
- Use locally and ethically sourced food and beverages.
- Reuse glassware on the bar and do not provide straws.
- Buy a vintage or secondhand dress and suit rather than buying new.
- Ensure your venue offers composting and recycling.
- Give reusable wedding favors rather than something that is disposable or comes with lots of packaging.
