Go Green! Green Wedding Receptions

 
Go Green Live Sustainably GREEN Wedding Reception from Caterers to Gifts

Green Weddings     GO GREEN LIVE SUSTAINABLY Organic, Fair Trade, Eco Friendly, Sustainable, Green Wedding Reception from Caterers to Gifts When planning your wedding reception create what you have always wanted and then check and see what components of your event you can create Green.
Find a caterer who works with organic, fair trade, local when available ingredients and ask them to make your favorite foods.
 
Look for a picture of what you would like your wedding cake to look like and send it a baker that works with organic, fair trade ingredients.

If you are having a destination wedding try to support your local vendors and the vendors at your destination.

They are out there and their prices are comparable and in some cases less expensive.
Use sustainable, ethically harvested paper products for your invitations, announcements, directions, programs, and welcome letters for destination weddings and out of town guests.  Be creative, my favorite is eco friendly paper with seeds and small flowers embedded in, your guests have the option of planting the paper and seeing a beautiful flower garden grow from you wedding paper. Look on line for locations that are already following eco friendly, green practices. If you find that perfect location inspire them to become eco friendly and green for more than your wedding. From lodging, restaurants, wedding ceremony and reception locations go green. Supply your locations with natural cleaning products for before and after the event, from window cleaner to toilet paper, inspire your vendors to go green and protect your guests from toxic chemicals. Check and see that the dishes are washed with n...
