A Dream Green Wedding: Having an eco-friendly Wedding

Stressed out in planning your wedding? Or are you running out of ideas on what to do with your wedding preparations? Worry no more as there is a multitude of exciting and unique wedding ideas you can find. You don’t need to be a wedding planner or wedding expert to come up with a magnificent idea that would put your guests in awe. But if you are still worrying that you do not have enough cash so your green dream wedding can push through, again, stop all your worries as a perfect wedding does not need extravagant spending of money. There are so many practical ways on how you can incorporate your dream green wedding without breaking your bank account.

You may actually wonder what these wedding ideas would be. Well, this wedding idea does not require thousands of dollars or too much wedding preparations. Hold on to your seats, as you take a closer look at the newest fads in many weddings today. This newest wedding idea is known as the eco-friendly wedding. Yes, you may have a little inkling on what this is all about because of the root word eco-friendly.

In this increasingly chaotic (both in terms of politics and environment) world, a modern bride must still be vigilant in answering the cries of society. In your own little way, you can contribute in preserving our planet. And this is truly memorable as you can do your share in saving the earth in the most memorable time of your life—your wedding. When we say eco-friendly wedding, this actually refers to having a wedding that has a lesser impact on the environment. You can do this by using wedding materials that can do no harm to the surroundings. Some of the most worthy materials to be used for an eco-friendly wedding are recycled papers. You can use this for your invitations. Using recycled papers can help protect trees. This only proves that your green wedding can go a long way in protecting the world we live in.

When incorporating this kind of wedding, your attire can also make a huge contribution. Make sure to pick a dress that is made of cotton, hemp and other organic materials so as to imbibe the green theme in your wedding. These materials are not petroleum-based. Meaning, they do not have nasty effects on the environment. Another alternative for your dress is to use a vintage or used one. You can ask the assistance of a designer for a little update on the dress to make it extra glamorous.

When it comes to flowers, you can go for the flowers that utilize organic practices. These flowers still look lovely. But the only difference is that these can do great lengths in your cause in saving the environment and also in your green wedding theme.

And lastly, for the menu, you can opt for the “green food.” Yes, you guessed it right. Your guests can have a taste of salad and fruits and stay away from meat. This would not only do great in your theme but you can help your guests maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hi there

I thought you might be interested to know that my latest book, "How To Get Married In Green: have an eco-friendly wedding without compromising on style," was published recently.

You can read more about it here:

...although of course the book is available on all Amazons, not just the UK version, and is in most good book stores.

I also run an associated blog where readers can post questions as comments, or email me with them, about how to make their wedding or other celebration more eco-friendly. I then respond on the blog. That's here:

With all good wishes
