How to plan a super stylish, cool yet sustainable wedding

You want to make choices which minimise the negative impact of your wedding on the environment but you still want to have a modern, stylish wedding which is a super fun experience for you and your guests, filled with love.

We're so glad you're here, you are our people!

Planning a sustainable wedding involves making conscious decisions that minimise the environmental impact of your special day. Here are some brief tips to get you started in the right direction but we also have blog features going into more detail on a lot of these points so take a look at those for more detail.

Choose an eco-friendly venue: Look for a venue that is committed to sustainability, a green hotel or resort, or an outdoor venue that uses renewable energy.

Reduce your carbon footprint: Consider offsetting the carbon emissions of your wedding by purchasing carbon offsets or donating to a reputable climate organisation.

Choose sustainable materials: Choose invitations, decorations, and favours made from eco-friendly materials, such as recycled paper, sustainable wood, or organic cotton. Or send your invitations electronically!

Use seasonal and locally sourced flowers and food: Use flowers and food that are in season and locally sourced to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation.

Choose a sustainable wedding dress: Choose a wedding dress made from eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, hemp, or recycled polyester. Or consider purchasing a pre-loved dress, and save yourself loads of money too!

Use reusable or compostable tableware: Use reusable tableware, such as glass plates and silverware, or compostable tableware made from bamboo or sugarcane.

Donate leftover food: Donate any leftover food to a local food bank.

Consider green transportation:

Encourage guests to use public transportation, travel together, or bike to the wedding.

Use sustainable lighting: Use LED lights or solar-powered lighting to minimise electricity usage.

Reduce waste: Reduce waste by providing recycling bins, using digital invitations, and avoiding single-use items such as plastic straws, cups, and utensils.

Reduce the size: consider having a smaller wedding, the less guests you have, the smaller the carbon footprint will be.

By implementing these sustainable wedding tips, you can make a positive impact on the environment while still having a beautiful and memorable wedding day.
