How to organise a wedding that’s good for the environment

So You Want a Sustainable Wedding?

You're getting married, and you want to do it in a way that's good for the environment. That's rad! Here are some tips to help you plan a sustainable wedding that's still totally cool:

  • Choose a venue that's close to home for your guests. That way, they can carpool or take public transportation. If you have to travel, encourage your guests to do the same.
  • Use sustainable materials. Your wedding invitations, save-the-date cards, and other materials can be made from recycled paper, organic cotton, or bamboo.
  • Decorate with flowers and plants.Instead of using cut flowers, which have a high carbon footprint, decorate with potted plants or flowers that can be replanted after the wedding.
  • Serve sustainable food. Choose food that is locally-sourced and organic. If you're serving meat, choose sustainable options such as grass-fed beef or free-range chicken.
  • Use sustainable transportation. If you're having a transportation option for your guests, consider using a shuttle service that uses electric vehicles.
  • Offset your carbon emissions. If you're not able to reduce your carbon footprint to zero, you can offset your emissions by donating to a carbon offset program.

Here are some other tips to make your wedding more sustainable:

  • Rent your wedding dress and accessories. This will help to reduce the amount of waste generated by the wedding industry.
  • Use reusable cups, plates, and utensils. This will help to reduce the amount of single-use plastics used at your wedding.
  • Donate your wedding flowers to a local charity. This will help to give the flowers a second life.
  • Offset your carbon emissions by planting trees. This is a great way to give back to the environment and celebrate your wedding.

By following these tips, you can help to make your wedding day a more sustainable and eco-friendly event. And who knows, you might even inspire your guests to make some sustainable changes in their own lives.
