Locating "green" suppliers for everything from invitations and wedding rings to vegetarian and vegan caterers and ecotour honeymoons. Here are some suggestions:
- For the ring exchange,consider heirloom jewels, natural gemstones and platinum.
- Vintage gowns that are made from eco-fabrics.
- Your flowers can be pesticide free wildflowers that are locally grown.
- Serving organic food and beverages from your local farmer's market.
- Whether your wedding is to be held indoors or outdoors, there are options. For indoor weddings, make sure the place represents "green" standards which means they will donate a certain percentage to environmental causes. Other ideas to consider are: a botanical garden, a museum, art gallery or perhaps a cultural center for a "green" reception.
- Minimize the use of power by using natural lighting.
- Rather than your guests bring gifts, you can suggest to your guests to make a donation to an environmental/cause that are meaningful to both you and the groom.
- Make your party favors eco-friendly. For example, soy candles and chocolates.
All this is useful to your "green" wedding.
