Green Wedding Themes Ideas
Selecting a location for the green ceremony is an essential factor. Organic farms can be an ideal green wedding location. A fenced farm, lawn, garden are ideal locations to perform the ceremony. Using maximum available seasonal flowers and leaves adds up to the greenery of the selected location.
Your ceremony can help you reduce your carbon footprint by using degradable material to set up the marriage stage. Decorating the hall, tables with the seasonal flowers available in the month of your wedding can avoid carbon emission.
Green Gown and Tuxedo
The main aim of the green wedding is not cost cutting, but this is an added advantage. The ‘Eco savvy bride and groom’ go for a green wedding to send a message to the new generation about energy conservation.
The attires can be simple as a vintage gown or a ivory gown with green bouquet or a green vale. The grooms outfit can be a decent tuxedo with a flower and green leaves pinned to the coat. Be creative in designing the bridesmaids’ costumes. These can be a message or simply symbolising earth.
Sending the invites in softcopy form is the best way to avoid paper waste. Using recycled paper is also an effective alternative to the invitation design. Handmade paper is decorative and biodegradable; using a handmade paper invitation enhances the green theme.
Making the menu vegetarian becomes a little over the top, but surely does serve the purpose and guests. Using degradable plates n glasses can help the guests in loitering all around the venue. The green menu can be an optional.
If the menu is not vegetarian the waste that remains after consumption can be used for biogas production. An organic bouquet can light up the ceremony with harmony. Leftover food can be used as organic waste which is used by producing biodiesel or eco friendly fertilizers.
Green in Bit and Pieces
Green wedding is not money saver but a small attempt to save the nature. Designing a seasonal specific menu, playing soft music in minimum decibel volume are also the branches of the same tree. There are numerous green registry sites available which can be informed to the guests.
Mixing green in every part of the wedding sends out a healthy message along with the principles of the bride and grooms to contribute to save our planet. This idea is not only a way to embrace Mother Nature but also a decent way to make your special day eco friendly.
Green can also be carried after the ceremony. By calculating the carbon dioxide emitted in a day, you can make it up by planting trees in the neighbourhood. Taking vows in an environment which speaks about your beliefs is a lovely way to begin a journey together.
