Top Green Wedding Tips
- Use in season flowers for your decorations or alternatives such as fruit, herbs or sweets that can be used and eaten after the wedding.
- Have your ceremony and reception as close as possible to cut down on travel between locations, if it is unavoidable encourage car sharing or hire a coach/vintage vehicle so everyone can travel together.
- Wear a nearly new or once worn wedding gown. If you want vintage even better, pick up an authentic dress rather than a newly made imitation.
- Take a look at eco friendly wedding invitations and consider a wedding website to cut down on the amount of information inserts you need to issue to your guests.
- Charity gifts – if you already have a home set up consider setting up a gift-giving list so people can donate to a charity in your name.
With thanks to Victoria from Without A Hitch for the advice.
