Eco-fy Your Big Day v.1

Kevin and I are now deep into wedding planning mode. There was a few months of relaxing and not really doing too much except for a few things here and there, but we are now getting back in the game, full steam ahead.

We are planning as green of a wedding as we can afford and create. We are trying to work environmentally and socially responsible aspects into each part of our wedding, from our registry items to using local produce and flowers.

I've been noticing a small buzz around "green weddings" and it's great that magazines and websites are trying to inject some green tips into their massive content, but I find it quite annoying that there's the wedding planning sections and then separately there's green wedding planning. What needs to happen for example is the idea of using local flowers to cut down on fuel usage shouldn't be "green tip" but merely a flower tip.These ideas shouldn't separate!

In the next few months, I will be posting about the green choices we've made toward a greener wedding. Right now I am looking into what flowers are available locally and in season. Even if you're not planning a wedding, I hope these ideas and tips can be translated into birthday parties, baby showers and any large or small event you may be throwing or attending!
