Ways to Go Green:
- Line your ceremony aisle with pots of living plants. You can either use them later in your own garden or home, or give them as gifts to your wedding party.
- Choose a caterer that uses seasonal, local and organic ingredients.
- Cover your tables with vintage linens. Search for them at antique shops and flea markets, or Ebay.
- Beautiful little cakes can do double-duty as centerpieces, either on their own or surrounded by small floral arrangements.
- Send your guests invitations that will grow! Round Robin Press makes invitations from organic cotton, with wildflower seeds embedded in the paper. Your guests can plant the invitation and think of you when flowers pop up!
- Wear an heirloom dress. If your grandmother, mother, sister or aunt still has her wedding dress, have it altered to fit you. Or, you can have a seamstress or tailor incorporate details from the antique dress into a custom dress for you: lace trim, buttons, etc.
- When you think green for decorations don't limit yourself with only non-floral decorations. Choose a floral designer who uses organic local, seasonal, sustainable grown flowers.
- Vintage is green, and that goes for jewelry, also. This stunning art deco ring is an amazing example.
