Green Wedding Tips

Today is Earth Day and I'm happy to know that more eco-friendly ideas are being incorporated in Weddings now days. Your Wedding can still be stylish and chic but benefit the environment at the same time. I read an article on Simply Dazzling Events Blog about "101 Ways to Make a Wedding Eco-Chic".

Instead of posting the article, I decided to pick the best tips.
Here they are:

1. Have the Ceremony & Reception at the same location.
2.Create a wedding website, rather than using mailer inserts with your invitation.
3. Use a reply postcard, rather than a note card that needs an envelope.
4. Buy a pre-owned Wedding dress (saves you money too!)
5. Use your Grandma’s vintage veil. It can be your “something borrowed”.
6. Use recycled gold for your Wedding rings.
7. In lieu of a favor, give the money to a charity for a greener world.
8. Plant a tree in memory of your wedding day. Then, plant a tree together on every anniversary.

Other tips I can think of:

9. Make a "Menu Card" per table instead of placing one at every place setting.
10. Toss petals or blow bubbles at your Ceremony instead of rice or non-biodegradable products.
11. Try to make your Wedding items double-purpose such as Program Fans for the Ceremony and Favor placecards for the Reception.
