Green Weddings

As we dig out of winter blizzards, recover from the gluttony of Super Bowl celebrations, and savor the last few Valentine’s chocolates, we look towards Spring, a time that brings the start the return of daylight savings! During the upcoming weeks, we will begin to re-appreciate Mother Nature, and from time to time, actually stop to smell the roses.This awareness and consciousness of nature has become increasingly prevalent in the world of events. 

Numerous articles and studies show that more and more clients seek venues, vendors, and event spaces that are environmentally friendly. The demand for these practices is definitely growing, and Event Planners are becoming more conscious of the impact events may have on the environment. Books, websites, blogs, and magazines dedicated to this topic are entering the mainstream, and are solely devoted to offering tips and suggestions to Brides-to-be and Party Planners. 

Have you seen the Wikipedia page “Green Wedding”? Here are a few recommendations that you may want to incorporate into your next event: Instead of mailing formal invitations, either e-mail your guests details or send them an e-vite. Not only will you save a few trees, you will not have the worry of guessing postage. When planning your menu, select items that are locally grown and/or in season. I don’t know about you, but for me, one of the simplest joys in life is eating freshlypicked blueberries. Yum! Talk to the venue and/or site consultant about their “green” habits. Do they use energy-efficient lighting? Donate untouched leftovers to charity? Contribute to environmental organizations in the local community? 

There is a world of possibilities, and each one makes a difference. Who knows? As this trend becomes more popular, green may become the new “It” color. Someday soon, we may even see Brides coming down the aisle in green wedding dress!
