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.

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?
My inspiration for the pink theme was this beautiful pink and orange floral table decor. The tweed-wrapped vases are a DIY project from Martha Stewart. (iWrap fabric around inexpensive glass containers.) Place an assortment of pink hued carnations, dahlias, tulips and spiky gerbera daisies into the vases for a lovely spring look. Set your floral arrangements atop a blush pink tablecloth accented with white plates and white napkins. Set a floral-adorned favor on top of each folded napkin.
On a table off to the side set out an arrangement of place cards. For more intimate family gatherings I would allow guests to select their own seats. Just make sure to sit the guest of honor, your mom, at the head of the table. On the other end of your place card table, display your dessert, a sweet pink 2-layer cake decorated with gum-paste rose petals.
Lastly, though this is the probably one of first things you would do, is choose from FineStationery.com. Also, as an added bonus they include pink colored envelopes which are bright and cheery to receive in the mail.
