Featured weddings and sessions, resources, travel guides, and my own personal musings.
Your love for each other is as big as the whole world — but as you start to think about planning and all the purchases you’ll be making, you don’t want your wedding to burden the planet. If you already make eco-conscious choices as part of your lifestyle, there are ways your wedding day purchases can fall in line with your values as well. Your wedding can be authentic and stylish, and still be conscious and kind to the environment at the same time.
We’ve come up with a few different tips and ideas on how to make your wedding more environmentally friendly. You don’t have to do them all, but you might find a few of these tips or ideas to fit your style. Planning a wedding is already stressful, so don’t feel overburdened by this list, but if your heart strings pull you into making more conscious-consumer choices on a regular basis, we’ve put together this list to draw ideas from. Making just one conscious choice is better than none! I personally asked our planner to make sure paper straws were provided instead of plastic ones, purchased an ethical wedding band for Scott, rented reusable dinnerware, and picked decor that I thought could be reused in our home. We can’t do it all, but it’s the little conscious choices each and every day that collectively make a big difference! Just imagine if all the brides in one year asked their venue to not use plastic straws!
With a bit of planning and the earth in mind, you can enjoy your celebration as a couple knowing your wedding will be more gentle on the environment, even if it’s just by incorporating one of these ideas or tips. Are there any more recommendations we should include on this list? Let us know in the comments how you have or plan to make eco-conscious choices while wedding planning!
