Eco Friendly Wedding
Thinking about an eco-friendly wedding? Or reducing your carbon footprint?
Going paperless is a great way to do this – all the paper you would have sent will be emailed instead. You’re not just saving paper either, you’ll also be helping to reduce emissions from delivery, especially if you’re sending wedding invitations overseas.
Top Tips for Green Weddings
- Encourage your guests to give each other lifts to your wedding, or provide a bus.
- If people are travelling from overseas ask them to carbon offset their flights.
- Choose locally supplied food, flowers and jewellery.
- Choose seasonal flowers and food.
- Don’t use flowers at all and go for alternative button bouquets.
- Go for a sustainable wedding venue.
- Try and have the ceremony and wedding in one location, saving carbon emissions on travel.
- Hire rather than buy or go pre-loved. This could also save you money.
- Instead of asking for gifts, request a donation to an environmental charity.
- Have your honeymoon in New Zealand – it is beautiful after all!
