Natural Floral ArrangementsFlowers are a major accent piece at weddings. From bouquets to floral arrangements on tables, it's a great eco-friendly idea to use natural flowers. Find flowers naturally found in your area to save money on your wedding floral designs, as well.
Farm-To-Table CateringWith the earth-friendly food craze, it's becoming more and more common to find natural food options. While organic foods can cost a bit more, keep in mind you can request your caterer to use locally grown food items to cut down on costs. Catering is a great place to focus your earth-friendly mindset to ensure you and all of your guests are eating organic and/or locally grown food items.
Up-Cycle DecorWhether you're going for a simplistic look or have an extravagant decor planned out, you can up-cycle your decor. From using old wine bottles wrapped in twine or to re-purposing tin cans for your centerpieces to fill with flowers, there are a TON of ways to up-cycle your wedding decor. Burlap is another fun way to cover and/or accent your reception tables.
Think Eco-Friendly FavorsWhile many people take wedding favors and throw them away at home, eco-friendly favors are a fun way to help ensure the favors get used. You can gift all of your wedding guests with a seedling or packet of seeds to start their own garden or plant. Another fun way to "give back", is to choose charities in which your guests can make donations, versus spending money on favors.
Re-use Your Wedding GownWhether you wish to wear your mother's gown or you've found a dress to re-purpose, this is a great way to avoid spending a lot of money and wasting new fabric. You can also borrow a gown from another family member or friend. In addition to your wedding dress, you can encourage your bridal party to use dresses they already own or shop for gowns at an eco-conscious company.
