A green wedding planner is essential in the creation of a wedding for environmentally conscious couples. Armed with the knowledge, experience, and established relationships with local vendors who reduce, reuse, and recycle, green wedding planners can help you to incorporate some green elements into your wedding or make decisions that are as close to 100% environmentally friendly as possible.
Green wedding planning is not costly. In many cases it can save you money, as the amount of waste can be dramatically reduced. A green wedding planner can offer advice and suggestions on how to “green” every aspect of your wedding, without compromising style and affordability. Here are some green wedding planning tips:
Yacht Selection: Opt for a vessel that will reduce speed and engine use
Wedding Invitations: Online invitations or invitations printed on recycled paper are excellent alternatives
Car Service: Travel in hybrid cars instead of limousines
Menu Selection: Choose organic and local
Beverage Selection: Select organic, fair trade coffees and teas and organic, local wines
Décor: Use recyclable products and beeswax candles
Flowers: Organic flowers from local growers are your best option
Jewelry: Recycle old jewelry or purchase new jewelry in fair trade gold and non-conflict diamonds from certified community mines
Bridal Gowns and Wedding Attire: Shop vintage, rent, or wear your mother’s dress
Photography: Opt for a photographer that provides digital proofs and ask guests to avoid single-use disposable cameras
Wedding Gifts: Choose a charitable gift registry, register with an environmentally friendly retailer, or give gift certificates for services
Wedding Favours: Select items from a local artisan or organic consumables
