"Just because you get married does not mean that we should forget the environment. This can provide a strong social message to all your guests. Not only will you feel good but the planet also! Soy candles in recycled or recyclable glass, flowers and potted plants instead of fresh flowers in vases, recycled paper invitations, Favors that can be reused by your guests are a few ideas to get you started. You can organize the wedding outdoors, if the season allows, and even in the day or early afternoon to only use natural light and thus reduce the energy consumption that would otherwise be needed. You could organize the wedding and the reception to be near the church for less transport and fuel consumption. You can look for an organically grown fruits and vegetables menu from local producers, fish, and chicken with special accreditation, and even organic chocolate! Did you know that there are clothes with natural dye? Ok don’t sacrifice your wedding dress or your beautiful gown for the sake of ecology, but a little thought goes a long way like natural materials, silk, linen and organic cotton. You can also go as far as to use the rings of your grandmother and grandfather instead of buying new, like a family heirloom. Obviously you will place recycling bins everywhere and ask the catering and managers at the event to comply. Finally, you can collect the excess food and make a donation to food banks or an institution or a homeless feeding center. As you can see, an eco-friendly wedding which will do something, even very small for the environment can be quite fun and inspiring for you and your guests. Think green!»
