10+ Great Eco Friendly Wedding Ideas

Want your union to get off to a positive start? Check out these great eco friendly wedding ideas!

By Diane Small

Your dress is vintage, your ring was his grandmother’s, you’ll be riding up to the ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage. Great! But guess what? There are still more great eco friendly wedding ideas you could implement.

Greening up your wedding is not just important for the planet – it’s symbolically important, too. Considering most marriages are the starting point for creating a new family, whatever you do today will impact your future children’s lives tomorrow. Whether you’re making one eco-gesture or a hundred, every little bit counts.

There are all kinds of areas you can make your wedding more sustainable, from the food and drink to invitations and gifts.

Not sure where to get started? Here are some great eco friendly wedding ideas to help make your big day as green as it is glorious.

10+ Great Eco Friendly Wedding Ideas

1. The Invitations

Seeded Paper

For any eco-wedding, recycled paper invites is a must, but there’s one type of recycled paper that really has a  greener edge: seeded papers! These contain tiny flower or herb seeds that sprout when buried in the earth. Designed in a variety of colours, sizes, fonts and styles by companies like Botanical Paperworks, paper doesn’t really get more planet-friendly than this.

E-Invites

While of course sending an e-invitation to guests isn’t the most romantic of gestures, it is growing in popularity (even prestigious Fashion Week invites are often electronic!).

I was recently invited to a wedding where the couple did send out electronic invites, and it was so convenient, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t do it–guests could RSVP online with a simple click; could see a map to the venue, and could even find links to the bridal registry. The invitation was also animated, showing slides of the couple from when they met to the present. Sweet! What may have made this more memorable is creating a printable version of the invite, or giving invitees the option to ‘order’ a paper version of the invitation.

2. The Table

Food

Organic is usually a good idea, but not if it has been flown in thousands of miles! Local is just as good in this case, so treat your guests to a feast of locally grown delicacies. To seriously reduce your carbon footprint, of course that means the meal should be as vegan friendly as possible–a nice, hearty pasta is always a universally loved main course. I once attended a wedding that served heart shaped pumpkin ravioli with truffle oil. Delicious, and memorable!

That being said, even vegan couples often give their guests a non-vegan option: in this case, try to stick to locally farmed chicken, which has a much lower environmental footprint than beef. Avoid shrimp, imported fish and food that’s out of season (like strawberries in winter) at all costs, as these have hugely negative implications for the environment.

As for the cake, keep in mind that many weddings waste mounds of it. Have you ever seen the entire cake devoured? As delicious as they may be, the fact is that after eating for hours on end, guests are usually too full by the time the cake comes to eat much of it. Keep it small, keep it simple, keep it sustainable!

Drinks

As with food, local is better. No need to import French or Italian wines–just source the very best of the local vineyards. The same goes for water: who needs imported bottles of mineral water when filtered local water is just as good?

Put carafes of water on each table and ensure they’re always full. Giving guests an option with slices of lemon, cucumber and a bit of mint offers a nice alternative to plain water or juice, and staves off hangovers for those indulging in that local wine!

Table Decorations

This is the easiest part of finding eco friendly wedding ideasthere are endless options for creating a wonderfully sustainable centrepieces, from using locally grown flowers in pitchers to long branches of evergreens. Guests can find their seats by searching for their names printed on seeded paper (as above), or even written on smooth, locally sourced pebbles.

They may look pretty, but try to avoid tablecloths, as these need washing, and that uses energy. Instead, keep it bare with polished wood, or for an added decorative touch, use strips of eco-friendly burlap or hemp to show guests where their table is, as in the example below.

3. Party Favours

Gifts for Suburbanites

These little delights left on the tables are what guests will take home with them to remind them of your big day. The traditional pieces of fruit cake or bags of sugared almonds can certainly be done sustainably if they’re packaged in recycled paper or eco-friendly fabric, but there are lots of other eco friendly wedding ideas, too.

For example, why not give guests a heart-shaped seeded card they can hang on a branch to feed the local birds? Guests will always remember your wedding if they plant a tree in their garden to commemorate your big day, so you could offer them small cedar or pine saplings, or the option to take seeds home, as in the pictures below.

Gifts for Urbanites

Urban guests without gardens or outdoor space nearby would love to take small pots of plantable herbs or small flowers home, which they can plant in a window box to enjoy fresh herbs and flowers all year round. Alternatively, you could support the cork industry (which is essential to protecting cork wood forests) by offering a party favour of customised coasters.

And everyone loves scented candles, so why not offer your guests an organic one, with floral notes from the bridal bouquet? It’s an especially lovely idea, as the candles at each person’s table placing will also fill the air of the reception with a memorable scent.

Meyer’s makes some wonderful ones and will also accept custom orders, but you can find plenty more on Etsy.

Confetti

Did you know most confetti is made from plastic, not paper?  Obviously, that’s hell on the environment.  Instead, there are several eco friendly wedding ideas we have for this instead. For example? Choose to hand out wee bags of rice for your guests to throw (old school style!), or make some natural confetti by using a paper hole punch to cut out tiny circles from leaves. Mix in with some rose petals or lavender, and voila! Eco friendly wedding ideas don’t get easier than that!

Gifts for Brides, Grooms and the Wedding Party

Since the bride and groom have gone out of their way to make their wedding eco-friendly, why not follow their lead and make your gift to them green as well?

Of course, if the couple is on a registry, you may as well help them out with the things they’re likely to buy later anyway. But if not, and if cash is not part of your gifting tradition, then there are lots of sustainable gifts you could offer, like:

* a day of his-and-hers pampering at an organic spa

* a donation in the name of the couple to a charity that’s important to them

* services, such as paying for the organic landscaping of their new home

* vintage gifts, such as a set of antique cutlery or a tea set

* a donation towards the couple’s (hopefully eco-chic) honeymoon

Of course, these gift ideas are also perfect for anyone in the wedding party.

4. Clothes & Jewellery

Sustainable wedding dresses are definitely gaining popularity, and many mainstream brands like Reformation are catering to the eco-bride. For a list of designers that are creating breathtakingly beautiful, sustainable wedding gowns, click here.

But don’t forget there’s another great option: you can now easily rent wedding dresses. And that’s a great plan, since you will never wear that dress again. Do you really want an expensive dress just wasting space in your closet for the rest of your life? For a list of the best places to rent wedding dresses, just click here.

The Rings

As with clothing labels, jewellery brands are beginning to offer some super chic designs to add to the eco friendly wedding ideas at your event. It’s pretty hard to know whether diamonds are truly ethically sourced (the Kimberley Process is rubbish, really), so either buy used or lab-grown if you really want a diamond.

With a little creativity and forward planning, there’s no reason why every couple can’t have a big, fat green wedding packed with wonderful eco friendly wedding ideas.

Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you.

Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser.

To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies.

a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.
