Go Green

There is a new trend for the year of 2012.  We are finding that many brides are going green.  You may asked what does that really mean.  Well, I’m here to tell you.  Let me first tell you that going green doesn’t mean that you can’t have the wedding that you want!  You can certainly have the most fab wedding while still going green.  Today’s wedding cost around $30, 000.  Many brides are trying to cut cost.  Going green will certainly cut the cost.

Here are a few tips:

A bride can use locally grown flowers for her and the wedding party.  She can also use local vendors.  Just about anything can be found locally.  This can save on fuel and travel cost.  Many brides are now reusing their mother and or grandmother gowns and making into her own style.  I am really big on the whole vintage look, and think this is a wonderful idea.

Brides can also choose a centrally located venue where her guest won’t have to travel so far to get to her wedding.

Invitations set the tone of how the bride’s wedding will be, and can get really expensive. Therefore, it is a great idea to use recycled, tree-free, and organic-paper for the invitations.  Using this type of paper can still set the tone of the wedding.

Brides can also make her gift registry at stores that support green weddings.  Yes, there are stores out there.

Instead of giving wedding favors donate the money to charitable organizations.  The bride can explain to her guest the purpose behind it.

These examples are just a few ways of how the bride can have a green wedding.
