How to Have Zero Waste at Your Wedding
You can throw a zero waste wedding by replacing traditional wedding elements with eco-friendly options. For starters, you could opt for an eco-wedding friendly planner who’d ensure there are sola wood flowers, zero waste flowers and edible arrangements at your wedding.
Instead of extravagant and resource-wasting centerpieces, you could settle for rustic wedding centerpieces on a budget. It is also a great idea to have a fall wedding at one of the many eco-friendly wedding venue on the map. You may want to consider Dreams Natura Resort Mexico and Sandos Caracol as some of the best options.
The natural landscapes of these destinations minimize the need for a lavish and faux wedding décor. The natural and scenic beauty of these places would make a dreamy wedding backdrop and not make you waste resources as well.
Having an outdoor fall wedding at the beach or the Caribbean in the daytime is also a splendid eco-friendly option. You’d have a gorgeous natural setting and the sufficient daylight would save tons of energy consumption in lighting.
There are several other ways in which you ensure zero waste at your wedding. Let’s take a look at those below:
Eco Wedding Flowers and other Options
Here are some great ideas to follow for an eco-friendly and zero waste wedding:
A charity registry is a great option. You could team up and donate to a cause such as an environmental or animal welfare. You could ask your guests to make donations as your wedding gifts, instead of giving you material things you’ll probably waste.
Another way to reduce carbon footprints from your celebration is to pick eco-friendly wedding venues. These venues have an LEED certification along with a sustainable venue option for your special event.
Trade freshly cut flowers for paper flower bouquets, sola wood flowers and edible arrangements. You can even use potted plants like spray roses or even herbs that guests can carry home and preserve in their gardens.
Opt for e-invitations instead of paper invites. You can promote your green wedding by eliminating paper usage
Wedding celebrations in the past were all about lavish and extravagant details that sadly caused massive carbon footprints. With the environmental consciousness spreading rapidly, thankfully fall eco-friendly weddings have now become the top trend.
