Here are some things we can do to lessen the damage...
Instead of buying a new dress where the fabric will have been sprayed with pesticides in the growing and many other chemicals in the production, how about borrowing one, have one made with organic fabics, buy an eco wedding dress (there are some beautiful websites selling them now) or have a vintage/secondhand one altered to fit you.
Something else for the bride-to-be to think about is hair and make-up. There are people out there that specialise in organic make-up and hair products to make you look so very lovely.
Many people will have a little gift for the guests on the table at the reception, a lovely idea is to give them each a little seedling of a plant. Celebrate with seedlings has a lovely selection of seedlings on offer, wrapped up pretty with a ribbon and fabric.
Do people still use confetti?? Well if you're into that, there is now a water soluble one available that is made out of rice. Beeswax candles are carbon neutral and non toxic. There are also places that will create invitations on recycled paper.
How about food? Mmmm, organic food and drinks are a lovely touch to any function.
And how shall we get to the wedding?? Maybe by horse drawn cart... or eco limosine. Otherwise you can always offset your emissions with Green Fleet.
There seem to be so many options out there now, I've only just scratched the surface., which is wonderful news for all those loved-up eco chicks out there!
