USE WHAT YOU HAVE...
It's a simple statement, and I've said it before, but it is worth repeating. When it comes to making your wedding or event special, remember it is the special little touches that set your event apart from the others. But that said, remember that your "touches" can be Greener or Eco Friendly, and still have a large impact.
Look around your house, your neighborhood, or a local second-hand store to see if you can find anything that will add interest and uniqueness to your event. Highlight that old seashell collection, or collection of antique wedding pictures. Gather baskets of pinecones, acorns or other nuts, pieces of old lace, ribbons and buttons, assorted colored glass vases or jars, monogramed items, etc... Place these items around your cake or desserts, near your guest book, at the bar, or on a special display table. Sprinkling these items around your dinner buffet also adds a personal touch to the event.
Making the move to Eco-Friendly isn't difficult. All it takes is a bit of imagination, and maybe a hint or two from your event planner. Call for additional ideas and make your day spectacular and earth friendly.
