Looking for a Unique Wedding Idea?

Sep 5, 2008
In today society people are starting to think about the environment more and more and now people are even considering a unique wedding idea ?a green wedding. There are a number of different ways that you can plan and implement an environmentally friendly wedding. The first thing that you should consider is having an outdoor wedding in a natural location where you enjoy that can add beauty and tranquillity to your wedding celebration. The wedding reception can be held at the same location.

When buying a wedding dress you should consider a recycled wedding dress. This means that you should shop around and look into buying a vintage wedding dress or you can look at resale shops. There are a number of dress shops online that specialize in selling dresses that have been donated or sold back to the store when brides that no longer need them. Vintage wedding dresses are the cheapest wedding dresses on the market and in most cases you will find them at old clothing stores or thrift stores. These dresses are not easy to find and it often requires visits to several thrift stores to find a dress like you like.

There is a new trend going through the wedding dress industry and this is the increase in the demands for organic silk or hemp wedding dresses. These dresses are slightly more expensive than vintage dresses as they are not a usual find in a wedding dress stores but if you look hard enough you can find the material that you need and you can have one made or you may be able to find a reasonably priced dress online. If you are wondering how to get this type of dress you might want to ask around at your location organic store to see if they have any ideas. If you cannot find a vintage dress or one made of organic silk you should look for a dress that you can wear again.

To have a green wedding you should consider sending out invitations that use as little paper as possible. If you are really trying to be environmentally conscience then you might want to consider sending out electronic invitations. If this is something that you do not want to consider then you can send out paper invitations in which the invitations and reply card fold together and the address can be printed on the back. These types of invitations do not require envelopes and the reply cards can be detached and they act as postcards and a simple stamp is attached. You can also ask people to call to say if they will attend or not rather than sending the reply card back.

People are always concerned about the wedding favours and great way to make your green wedding complete is to make a donation to your favourite environmental organization in the name of your guests. If this is not something that you think is appropriate you can give each of your guests a small tree that they can plant in their backyard or somewhere else of their choosing. This is a great way to help the environment.
