Having an organic wedding says a lot about the couples environmental beliefs. Because a wedding is special and has symbolic meaning, there is no better time than now for people who are environmentally conscious to get on the bandwagon with organic weddings. Organic weddings are just one way to show how your lifestyle and buying habits impact the environment as well as the people around you. Choosing tree-free paper and local, organic food for the wedding are just a few of the ways to incorporate your personal choices into the eco friendly wedding of your dreams. When choosing a caterer, ask if they will provide locally grown organic food that is in season. If they do not offer this option, look elsewhere. When choosing a photographer, ask that they take digital photos instead of 35mm prints. Also ask what kind of digital camera they have. Make sure it has high megapixels so you can get some prints blown up and framed if you choose. Think about alternative modes of transportation such as walking, bicycling or arriving in a horse and carriage. Choose organic make-up products for your special day. When it comes to wedding attire, you can buy environmentally friendly material to make a wedding dress or simply rent one. The same goes for the rest of the wedding party. When it comes to flowers, look for locally grown organic flower options. If you can't find any, try growing your own. Finally, for the ultimate in eco-friendly weddings choose to have an outdoor wedding.
