Planning a wedding is one of the most exciting things you’ll ever do in your life, but along with the excitement comes a certain amount of stress as you try to work out every detail.

Green is the New Black – Stress Free Eco-Friendly Wedding Ideas

You’re getting married! Yay! Now, what?

Planning your wedding can be a lot of fun. It can also be a great big giant headache. There are so many things to consider, feelings to protect, and your own happiness to pursue. What do you do first? How do you prioritize?

First of all, relax. Take a deep breath…and release. There. Much better.

So you want to have an environmentally friendly wedding – an Eco Wedding, if you will. But how do you go about planning one? Is it possible to have the wedding of your dreams without doing so much damage to the environment that there won’t be anything left for your children’s wedding?

The answer is a resounding YES!

And the best part of having a Green wedding? You save money! What could be better than having a dream wedding while saving the Earth and fattening your wallet? Maybe eating a whole lot of chocolate without breaking out or gaining weight – but that’s a whole different issue.

Back to the topic: Stress-free eco wedding planning. Right.

Making Eco-Friendly Wedding Choices

May 26, 2010

Best Biddy, a website that connects consumers with wedding vendors and home service professionals in Canada and the United States, recently conducted a poll where they asked, “Where are you making your eco-wedding choices?” I was very disappointed to read that only 9% of the people who responded said they were choosing green wedding favors!

The presentation of favors is one of the most memorable and gracious gestures at a wedding, yet it breaks my heart to realize how many people are still giving their guests trinkets that will either sit around collecting dust, get tossed in a drawer, or even thrown away. Not only do those little plastic products generate vast amounts of pollution during the manufacturing process, but since most are made in other countries, even more pollution is created and resources wasted during shipping.

Instead, why not give unique, thoughtful wedding favors that inspire memories of your special day and help our environment? Tree seedlings, flower bulb favors in eco gift boxes, and plantable seeded favors are all gifts that will live long after your wedding day, and are just a few of the options that we’ve been proudly offering at Tree Beginnings since 1992.

Please join me in spreading the word!
