A green wedding isn't just ecologically smart; it can be economical and inspirational as well. Consider adding your own eco-friendly touches throughout your wedding events: Engagement Parties, Bridal Showers, Organic Luncheons, Wedding Rehearsal…

How you can throw an eco-chic wedding event:

  1. The exclusive new eco-friendly Wedding Card Box designs not only combine elegance and tradition but are eco-friendly. The recycled cotton box and wrap are as sturdy as wood. The card boxes come in 2 sizes - the Standard Wedding Card Box, which holds up 200 cards, and the Mini Wedding Card Box (perfect for bridal showers), big enough to hold up to 100 cards. We can customize your Wedding Card Box with your wedding colors and flowers.
  2. Save some trees and consider using recycled paper goods for invitations, announcements and stationery. This Favor Bag from Estilo Weddings is made from 100% recycled cotton fiber.

  5. If you are using disposable products, make sure you use biodegradable products that easily decompose. Consider using these bamboo products - Bamboo Veneer Plates and Bamboo Chopsticks as a green alternative to disposable paper plates. They are both stylish and kind to the environment.
  6. Send your guests home with a plant or tree seedling as a party favor. Planting a tree that will grow and symbolize your positive contribution to your community for your and your children's lifetimes is a lovely way to start your lives together.
  7. Source out gifts that are made from eco-friendly sources. This Vegan Clutch is a great gift for your bridesmaids. Made of vegan leather, it's designed to look like real leather, yet is biodegradable in 10 years and comes in assorted colors.
