When it comes to planning a wedding, making sustainable and ethical choices can have a big impact. From the food you serve to the decor you choose, there are many ways to throw an eco-friendly wedding that is both beautiful and ethical. Here are six eco-friendly wedding tips to help you plan a wedding that’s kind to the planet.
Choose a Green Wedding Venue
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make is where to host your wedding. Choose a venue that has eco-friendly practices such as recycling, composting, and using renewable energy sources.
Use sustainable decor
Decorate your venue with sustainable items like potted plants, recycled paper decorations, and upcycled or rented furniture. You can also use natural materials like wood, flowers, and greenery for a beautiful, natural look.
Serve sustainable food
Choose a caterer that uses local, organic, and seasonal ingredients. You can also opt for a vegetarian or vegan menu to reduce the carbon footprint of your wedding.
Give eco-friendly favors
Instead of traditional favors that are often discarded, choose eco-friendly options like potted plants, seeds, or edible treats that come in reusable containers.
Choose ethical fashion
Consider buying secondhand or renting a wedding dress or suit. You can also choose ethical and sustainable accessories such as jewelry made from recycled metals or sustainably sourced materials.
Opt for sustainable transport
Consider using a hybrid or electric car for your wedding transport. You could also arrange a carpool or hire a coach to transport your guests, reducing the carbon emissions from multiple cars.
By making these eco-friendly wedding tips into account, you can reduce the environmental impact of your wedding while still having a beautiful and memorable day. Don’t forget to spread the word about your ethical choices and inspire others to do the same.
