~Earth Day and Your Wedding~

These days there are so many ways to
keep it "green"
at your wedding and help our planet from waste.
It's actually really easy and there are so many ways to
re-use and be creative for your wedding.

The impact of the wedding industry is undeniable. There are almost 2.5 million weddings every year in the United States alone. When you consider that the average wedding creates 62 tons of carbon dioxide and more than 400 pounds of garbage, they add up to a lot of waste! Luckily for the modern bride, going green is easier than ever before.

Green Invitations: is a great source for earth friendly wedding stationary.

"Todays consumer can make an impact by simply using recycled paper or going the coolest way and using seeded paper that germinates when planted. Tree Free Paper are also unique since invitations are made with out any fibers from trees"

Eco-friendly Decor:
I was just browsing Craigslist for used wedding decor . . .
and seriously why buy new vases/centerpiece decor new when you can get it cheaper from someone that has previously used it?

Keep in mind that one of the huge trends in weddings is Vintage
So by renting some vintage furniture, decor, etc you will be stylish AND help our earth!

When you are planning your wedding, or any event,
keep these ideas in mind and just be creative.
Do your part!

Happy Earth Day Loves!
