Environmentally Friendly Wedding

Happy Earth Day!

It doesn’t have to be Earth Day for us to think about making less of an impact on our environment.  Many of couples have been asking for advice on how to make their weddings green.  Here are some of the tips we like to share with all our clients:

1) Use green invitations.  Believe me the quality of recycled paper has come a long way from the 80’s.  This elegant invite gives you the chance to change the world one simple choice at a time.  The paper is made with 100% post-consumer fibers and created without the use of chlorine compounds.  The manufacturer uses a significant amount of renewable energy resources and responsible forest management practices. http://mystylishwedding.com/store/invitations-c-1/go-green-green-seal-certified-recycled-invitation-p-813.



2) Instead of cut flowers (which can be full of pesticides) there are several stunning rentals that can be used as centerpieces.  Take our bronze trees for example … you can’t make more of an impact in a room.


3) Banish disposable water bottles!  Hand out these gorgeous re-usable water bottles as favours instead.  These sturdy metal bottles can be personalized any way you like and will help encourage your guest to kick the plastic habit as well!


4) Use a beautiful seating chart instead of placecards.  We love seating charts because they don’t waste all that cardstock and are made using post-consumer material.  The best part is that they are 100% customizable.  Our brides love them so much that they often hang them in their home after the wedding.  Check them out at http://mystylishwedding.com/store/wedding-day-printing-c-30/seating-charts-p-650


5) We love, love, LOVE these organic favour boxes.  Need I say more?
