Inspiration for a Chic Earth Day Wedding

"Earth Day" every day, right?! Officially April 22, Earth Day has been a day set apart and honored all around the world since 1970. This day of awareness is all about how we {individually and collectively} can come together in doing all we can, to help protect our planet by way of repurposing, reusing, and recycling. Earth Day is important! And, for reducing the wedding carbon footprint, here are 5 ideas in minimizing the waste:

5 Earth Day Wedding Ideas

  1. Venue: Broaden environmental awareness by choosing a venue that proclaims the beauty of the great outdoors. Think arboretum or garden weddings and/or local & state park settings.
  2. Local Flowers & Organic Fare: Shop the farmers market and choose local vendors for your florals & food.
  3. Earth-friendly Wedding Stationery: Look for eco-friendly papers that are made i.e.: elemental chlorine free, acid free, windpower, recycled paper, etc.
  4. Charitable Wedding Favors: Instead of buying favor gifts, gift your fave charity in need!
  5. Repurposed Decor & Attire: Bring new life to used decor and attire. Consider repurposing a previously owned wedding dress that you can alter to make it your own.
