How to make your wedding day more environmentally friendly

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

At a time when many people are becoming more aware of environmental and ethical issues, we at Katie’s Cards have put together a few tips about how to make your wedding day as environmentally friendly and as ethical as possible:

  1. Food glorious food – Source locally produced, seasonal food. This cuts down on food miles and helps reduce your carbon footprint.
  2. Favours – I think it’s best to keep favours simple and elegant. Ethical wedding supplier Natural Design has a beautiful range, all of which can be customised: a little cherry blossom napkin ring, sprigs of lavender tied to a hand-crafted paper rose, or a rosebud heart would add a romantic touch to any wedding table. What’s more, the tags are 100% recycled and all of their rosebuds are hand crafted from eco-friendly saa paper.
  3. Flowers – if using fresh flowers, try to source locally grown flowers in season rather than imported flowers. Or choose a bouquet of paper wedding flowers that would provide you with a lasting memento of your big day.
  4. The name place cards – Make sure they’re made out of paper or card that’s 100% recycled and is FSC certified. Alternatively, if you live near a beach, why not pick up some pebbles and use a calligraphy pen to write the name of each guest on an individual stone. These give a lovely personal touch and are a nice memento for each guest to take home.
  5. Invitations – By choosing to send an eco-friendly e card invitation instead of paper cards you can reduce your carbon footprint. No fuel is needed to buy or deliver the cards and no resources are needed to manufacture the cards.
  6. And, finally, when buying your dress, choosing your venue and deciding upon your decorations, try to support fair trade by researching suppliers who practice equal pay, treat their workers well and are environmentally friendly.
