Why not go paperless? Sending your invitations out electronically will mean that all the trees are where they belong, in the forest. Having an electronic invitation doesn’t mean it needs to be boring. Your stationery designer can add all the beautiful elements on your e-invite that you would get with a print invitation.
Instead of the traditional cut flowers for your table decor, consider using succulents or plants as the centre pieces. With this, you not only have arrangements that can be replanted, but by having multiple succulents on the tables they double as eco-friendly wedding favours for your guests to take home!
There are so many eco-friendly confetti options available such as Fynbos Confetti, Sprigs of Lavender, Birdseed, Sparklers and of course, Bubbles! With any of these options you are not only considering the environment but you will have something special and different for your wedding photos too.
Menus and seating plans can also become more eco-friendly. Instead of having the traditional printed menus and name tags, consider having giant black boards. Not only will this save on printing costs and materials, it will look stunning in your venue. The giant boards are extremely versatile, thus you can customise them to suit your specific theme.
Lastly, lighting is a big factor when it comes to any wedding. Candles and solar lamps are a great way to create soft, romantic light in your venue while staying eco-friendly. Solar lamps can also be used outside without any risk or ugly cabling, making this a great option for any wedding whether eco-friendly or not!
With these eco-friendly tips your wedding is sure to be all you imagined and more!
