Going Green, An Environmentally Responsible Wedding

Weddings are a great time to stop and think about our future and how our footprint will effect our environment's future. After all, weddings are all about forever. So think 'green' when planning your wedding.

A good way to 'go green' is to choose a venue that purchases their foodstuffs and buys locally. This cuts down on the amount of fuels used to get the food from the farm to your table. Not only that, locally grown foods are usually full of flavor and nutrients because of their freshness.

A recyclable wedding invitation? Yes you can! Invitations can be made of recycled paper with flower seeds inside the paper. Your guests cannot only recycle but they can plant your invitation and enjoy the flowers. What a nice way to make your guests part of your wedding.

Have a great idea for a green wedding? By all means share it with your fellow brides!
