You may not be able to halt global warming on your own, but you can at least exert some efforts in making this world a better place to live in by choosing to have a green lifestyle. And when it comes to weddings, you can decide to lessen your carbon footprint so that your matrimony will be transformed into an eco-friendly event. In this post, we are going to tackle some useful tips on how you can turn special day into a green event and start your marriage life right.
Tie-A-Knot The Green Way With These Helpful Tips:
1. Go local – The cake, food, and wine are some of the important things at the reception. Go green by buying these wedding essentials at the local market. Acquire the services of your neighborhood bakery and let them do the honors of making your wedding cake; Buy all the food ingredients that you need at the local farm; and instead of ordering wines someplace else, why not support a winery from your town and patronize their products at the nuptial? Doing these simple things will lessen the carbon emissions that can be produce throughout the whole shipping and delivery process and in turn you are saving the environment without having to put too much effort in it.
2. Opt for Eco-dresses at your wedding – High end suits and wedding dresses are very enticing to wear and surely enough most of the brides would love to don an expensive gown at their special day. But instead of wearing pricey gowns that are made from traditional fabrics, why not go for eco-friendly dresses for a change? They are termed as eco-friendly because all of these dresses are made from natural fabrics and with no synthetic materials used in the coloring and the design.
3. Make all the guests aware about your eco-friendly efforts – Inform all the guests beforehand about your intentions of making a green wedding. Include this information on the invitations and encourage them to wear eco-outfits and bring ‘green gifts’. Moreover, if you can persuade them go easy on nature during the travel then go ahead and do so. Ask them to use ethanol fuel or biofuel on their way to your wedding venue. Ethanol is a plant by-product and it exhausts clean emissions compared to diesel and gasoline fuels. Clean emission equals less pollution, and less pollution to the air means less damage to the ozone layer which will eventually contribute to the decrease in global warming. It’s a clever idea to save Mother Nature while you’re on your way to make your vows in front of the altar.
