Keep Your Wedding Environment Friendly

You don’t have to sacrifice your personal style to be sustainable. Planning an eco-friendly wedding doesn’t have to be completely overwhelming! With these tips and tricks, you can not only enjoy the “green” wedding, but also inspire other couples to do the same! Learn how to make your wedding eco-friendly!

RECYCLING RING…

You can activate sustainability long before the big day comes by choosing the rings of your choice! The mining of diamonds and precious stones has long been associated with conflict trading and poor environmental practices. Buying non-conflict recycled diamonds and metals is a fantastic way to incorporate environmental friendliness into your engagement and wedding. Stones developed in the laboratory are another great and affordable way to stay environmentally friendly. Buying vintage rings or remodeling existing rings is another way to incorporate feelings and family history into your sustainability efforts!

BUS, TRAIN, CAR OR PLANE…

When deciding on your location, it is important to take into account the emissions associated with travel. After all, your guests must achieve the goal of their dreams! In particular, long-haul flights and trips in cars largely harm the environment. If you are torn between places, consider the area that requires the least number of trips by plane or car. Choosing an open space not only means unity with nature, but also provides a natural and beautiful decor that does not need to be cut off so that it can be used! Conducting your ceremony or reception in a national park is not only beneficial for its picturesque landscape, but also helps to finance its preservation.

FRESH FLOWER FASHION…

Flowers bring such a life into a wedding, integrating personal style, color and emotions into weddings, but freshly cut plants are not the best for the environment. Consider using potted flowers, such as orchids or shrub roses, which have a long life and can be reused at home after the event. If you still choose cut flowers, choose seasonal flowers grown on site to reduce transport losses. Some florists compost their arrangements after the event, so make sure you ask! Succulents are also a great table decoration that your guests can take home and store for a long time after the event.

DREAM DRESS…

Choosing the dress of your dreams, it is easy to get carried away by the recent wedding trends and fads. Instead, consider timeless works that have remained relevant to all hobbies. A used or vintage dress is not only much affordable, but also gives the favorite dress a second life. If you still crave this new great style, work only with ethical designers who make environmentally friendly fabrics and practice fair conditions for their employees. Fast fashion makes a huge contribution to pollution and water consumption. The search for local, sustainable designers significantly reduces their influence.

DROP THE PRESENTS…

Forgo gifts in your register and choose charitable wedding services instead. It’s a fantastic way to involve your guests in a changing situation; donations to Animal Welfare Fund and Greenpeace are just a few notable examples. Registration of intangible goods is also a great way to reduce packaging costs. Instead, ask for gift cards, honeymoon experiences, etc. Registering your sustainable gifts will likely inspire other couples to do the same!
