Ways To Make Your Wedding More Sustainable
Want your wedding to be ethically sourced but to still wow the crowd? As sustainability-focused companies within the wedding industry expand, so too do the options. Here are a few ideas to get you started on your hunt for a wedding celebration curated with conscience.
First things first, the attire. From preowned bridesmaid dresses to a beautiful bridal gown made from low carbon emission materials, there are several earth-conscious wardrobe alternatives. The same goes for accessories! Ethically sourced metals, synthetic stones, and lab grown diamonds offer just as much sparkle at less of a cost to the environment.
You could also give back to the planet as you give out your wedding favors. Instead of nonbiodegradable items that could go to waste, opt for edible treats from the local farmers market or customized seed packets encouraging guests to sow something beautiful to commemorate your marriage.
Lastly, it’s essential to be choosy when selecting a venue, vendors, and other services. Concentrate on companies that prioritize sustainability and are committed to minimizing the environmental impact of your big day.
