Planning a wedding but finding it hard to stay green with it? Here are seven tips that will help you put together an environment-friendly wedding in no time and without a hassle!
- CUT DOWN ON FLOWERS AND/OR GO LOCAL
Unfortunately, traditionally cut flowers are not the best way to go. This is because they have a really serious carbon footprint. Fortunately, nowadays, there are such a large number of choices for contrasting options to flowers that you may be overpowered, yet in the event that you have your heart set on new flowers at your wedding, there are still alternatives. Check your farmer’s market rates and swing by the day of to tangle in season flowers and this will also help support your local farmer. Furthermore, you can simply eliminate the whole idea by going flower-free and opting for a no-flower theme, similar to centerpieces.
2.RENT YOUR LINENS
You know what makes renting materials wonderful? There’s zero pressing included. You don’t need to buy or transport new materials, and another person will deal with the washing and sorting after the event. Also, don’t stop at clothes; lease anything you can. Repeat after us: renting is constantly greener (and simpler). Another green option: crowdsource and see whether any close relatives or family companions have materials or other style they’ll rent out to you. This will help cut down costs, and you can see how much your other costs are and how much you’re saving by using the Wedding Budget Calculator.
- URGE PEOPLE TO SHARE
How about we hear it for family style and buffet style food! In short: less waste, more affordable, and what you don’t need hasn’t been wasted, which implies your wedding server can take the left-overs home for her flat mates.
- RECONSIDER THE FAVORS
Above all else, you needn’t bother with them. In any case, in the event that you outrageously need to give your guests something to bring home, go for consumable, helpful, or recyclable things keeping in mind the end goal to stay away from heaps of undesirable plastic after every one of the guests are no more.
- OPT FOR A SOLAR-POWERED VENUE
If you want to add more green and eco-friendly elements to your wedding, then opt for a wedding venue that is solar-powered. The lighting and music system will be enabled by solar power which means that you will be using a renewable source of energy and not wasting any electricity.
- GO VEGETARIAN FOR THE DAY
You may have read the insights: the cooking of meat uses a considerable measure of water. Be that as it may, you don’t need to be a practicing vegan (and neither do your guests) to have a magnificent, eco-friendly vegan-friendly supper at your wedding. There are such a large number of choices (Mediterranean food! Delightful pasta! Indeed, even veg-friendly BBQ), that are delectable and filling; your guests will barely notice the difference.
- PICK A VENUE YOU DON’T HAVE TO DECORATE
Decorating a venue can be fun, but it’s not really all that environment friendly. The good thing is that a lot of pre-decorated venues exist, and you don’t need to acquire anything additional. Helpful tip: on the off chance that you need to do some decorating, yet have a lovely setting, search for open air spaces with lots of outdoor light.
