The article had some great suggestions, including:
- Avoid "blood diamonds" in favor of vintage rings, or even wooden bands
- Choose a venue that require less travel
- Serve organic wine
- Use a florist that offers local flowers and greenery
One of my favorite tips was celebrating your marriage with a shower of biodegradable confetti!
Ecofetti offers confetti that is environmentally safe - and comes in a variety of colors, as seen below.
How fun is that?
So, as you plan your wedding, keep in mind that there are many options that will allow you to have a wonderful, unique event, and still remain environmentally responsible.
