The Top Wedding Trend: Sustainable Weddings

People are becoming very aware of the environment and the world around them; be prepared to see lots of eco-friendly touches at weddings.

Although many believe that keeping the environment in mind is something that should always be considered when planning a wedding and event and not a trend, the idea is that more and more couples are making the effort to make their wedding eco-friendly and has minimal waste.

Weddings take days to set up and get ready and some luxury weddings even take weeks to set up, and their carbon footprints are inevitable, but all the waste, plastic use, shipping, and everything else has become unacceptable.

Event planners, florists, and other wedding suppliers are looking for ways to create sustainable weddings.

Also, check out these 12 Ideas for a Green and Eco-Friendly Wedding.

To give you a clearer idea and help you plan a sustainable and eco-friendly wedding here are some tips for you:

Zero Waste Weddings

Many brides are aiming for zero waste weddings and try to reduce the carbon footprint of their wedding, and this can be done in many ways such as repurposing flowers, plant-based stationery, and hiring suppliers who know about this and can help out.

Second Hand Glam

One of the most popular ways for a sustainable wedding is for brides to consider vintage or secondhand dresses, veils, and the grooms to go for secondhand suits as well.

Some grooms are even going for wood bow ties, recycled gold wedding rings, and more.

Vegan Menus

Couples are being more thoughtful when choosing their wedding menu items, which means choosing more vegan options with fresh locally sourced fruits and vegetables. 

Small Sized Weddings

We expect to see a lot of smaller weddings in comparison to the large luxurious weddings, with fewer wedding guests and less food and drink.

 

Eco-Friendly Stationary

We'll see more wedding stationery and invitation cards made of recycled paper and soy-based inks. Many couples are also going for email invites. 

Loving Favors

You can find an endless of people who have a home business and make homemade soaps, lotions, bath bombs, and candles, to promote wellness.

Other popular wedding favors are donations to charity in guests' names, home-baked goods and cacti pots. 

Table Decorations

Photography experts Youri and Avieta Claessens have shared their thoughts on sustainable weddings which we will see more of:

"Our bridal couple M & M from Lucerne, Switzerland set the sustainability trend by choosing flowers that could be reused after the wedding day. Their wedding table was decorated with various organic herbs and fruits like sage, thyme, rosemary, lavender, and peaches as a colorful eye-catcher. Every guest had the opportunity to take a pot of herb home after the wedding reception - nothing was wasted."
