An Eco-Friendly Wedding

Happy Earth Day Everyone!

Today’s inspiration board is based on an eco-friendly wedding with home baked goods and fresh farm-to-table elements. A green wedding doesn’t have to be super expensive; consider some of these inexpensive tips:

- Use vintage, borrowed or flea market finds and give them new life by repurposing them for your wedding day. Items such as patterned mismatched plates, silverware and glassware can be borrowed from friends and family to collect enough for your wedding day.

- Find a venue that allows you to do both the ceremony and reception at the same place so that you and your guests don’t have to commute.

- Use vendors near your wedding location and get fresh local produce and flowers from the local farmer’s market.

- Collect mason jars or bottles to use as flower vases for your tables’ centerpieces.

- Use a wedding website to eliminate paper invitation inserts.

- Have a friend or family member help you make some baked goods such as cookies or mini cakes for a dessert table.

- Give something edible or plantable (such as seedlings) as your wedding favors. Guest will love them more than little trinkets that end up collecting dust or in the garbage, and they’re more eco-friendly.
