June is the traditional month for weddings and many of those planning on getting married in June of this year probably are making plans as early as now. Indeed, those who are planning extravagant weddings are probably almost done with their planning. Have you considered having a green wedding? Of course I am not talking about the color theme for the ceremony; instead, I am referring to having a wedding that will have a lesser impact on the environment. Here are some ideas that can help you do just that.
Wedding rings. Have you had new wedding rings made? If not, why not consider using family heirlooms? This will not only help the environment but also make the symbols of your love even more significant. You may even get old pieces of jewelry and have them re-fashioned to suit your tastes.
Wedding attire. While many brides may want a totally new gown, the option of wearing your mom’s wedding gown is always open. Why not take it a step further and make it a theme? Instead of having new dresses made for the entourage, why not make it a point to “re-use” old (but no less beautiful or elegant) clothes for everyone?
Invitations. Have you checked out the prices of professionally-made invites lately? They are astronomical! Why not consider electronic invites? Or if you want something more concrete, make sure you patronize recycled products. Again, this does not mean that they will be less elegant or beautiful!
