Reduce, Reuse and Recycle

by Valerie 4/29/2009 10:57:00 AM

We've been hearing about "going green" for years as a way to help save our Earth's resources, and today, green or organic weddings are a strong trend.  More and more couples are excited to incorporate eco-friendly ideas into their wedding ceremonies and receptions.  There are many ways to acoomplish this, including:

1) Save some trees by using recycled paper goods for invitations, announcements and stationary.  An increasing number of suppliers are carrying recycled, handmade and tree-free invitations.

2) Considering using plants instead of cut flowers for centerpieces.  Guests can then plant them when they return home and as your love grows over time, so does the plant!

3) Favors can be packets of plant or tree seeds, or organic chocolates and candies.

4) Decorate with nature... Incorporate eco-friendly fabrics into your decor such as bamboo and natural cottons.  You can also opt to use branches, greenery, stones and seashells as decor.  Also for venues, the great outdoors is often already decorated thanks to Mother Nature and make beautiful ceremony sites!

Going green has a lot of benefits besides being environmentally friendly.  It can help save money during these tough economic times and be inspirational as well.  Whether you incorporate small touches or go green all the way, Mother Earth will thank you!
