Eco wedding is basically an eco-friendly or sustainable wedding. A celebration where the couple tries to reduce the event’s effect on the environment. Nowadays, green wedding ideas are plentiful, with more eco wedding decorations on the market and greener options for catering, wedding invitations etc.
Your wedding should be a reflection of you as a couple-including your style, love story and values. If living an eco-friendly lifestyle is important to you, then your matrimony should show that.
More love – Less stuff
Eco wedding planning is a balancing act. Even small positive changes will amount to a big difference and it’s wonderful that you aspire to be a part of that.
There are many different eco-friendly wedding choices you can make to reduce waste or lessen the carbon footprint of your event.
Here’s a guide on how to throw an eco wedding:
- Eco-friendly venue
Select a venue that places an emphasis on environmentally friendly practices such as recycling. Opt for a location that can host both ceremony and reception to reduce the emissions from cars on the road.
- Eco wedding decor Ideas
Choose sustainable wedding decor ideas for your eco wedding. Your special day can look beautiful, while also being kind to earth.
- Natural elements in wedding details
Borrow some decorative details from nature and incorporate them into your wedding style. Use real leaves as place cards for guests to find their seat at the reception. There are also many creative ways to reuse glass jars, wine bottles and create stunning centerpieces.
- Celebrate by candlelight
Instead of lighting your entire event with electricity, utilize candles where possible. You’ll absolutely love the romantic glow created by the candlelight. It’s perfect for a wedding.
- Eco-friendly wedding flowers
Use live plants instead of cut flowers and donate them afterwards.
- Digital invitations
Rather than sending printed wedding invitations, send digital ones or save the dates instead. There are plenty of great online wedding invite options. If you still want to have some on paper though, print your designs on an earth-friendly one.
- Have a wedding website
Put as much of the necessary information as possible on your wedding website and it will eliminate the need for extra information cards.
- Eco catering
Choose caterers who source from local farms.
- Eco wedding favors & gifts
Planning to give your guests a token of appreciation for attending your special day? Go green by using no-waste wedding favors and wedding souvenirs.
