There are numerous ways to create eco friendly weddings from having invitations printed on recycled, chlorine free paper to choosing organic flowers for your bouquets. When planning an eco friendly wedding look closely at your invitation options. There are recycled invitations made with and without paper. If saving trees is important to you, choose invitations made with tree free papers. You could also choose to offset the paper usage by offering small trees to everyone who attends your wedding. The next item you will likely think about is favors for your guests. You could offer small trees, packs of organic seeds or even seashells the two of you picked up along the beach and personalized. One of the largest investments will be your wedding dress. There are several ways to have an environmentally friendly wedding dress. The first is to choose an organic fabric and have your dress made. Other options are to use someone else's dress or rent a dress for the occasion. You can rent the attire for the entire wedding party if you wish. When it comes to the food and flowers, choose locally grown organic items. Instead of arriving at the destination in a limousine, try a horse and carriage. Not only is it a more romantic and memorable choice but it is environmentally friendly. Many eco friendly weddings are held outside at a place of natural beauty such as a garden or on a beach. Outdoor weddings certainly save on electricity and are just one more way to have an eco friendly wedding.
