Happy Earth Day! Finally, Practical Suggestions for a Green Wedding

TAGS: GREEN, ECO-FRIENDLY

With all the green talk lately, I've come across a ton of outlandish, costly and completely impractical suggestions on how to plan a green wedding. Finally, Kendall Brown of Eclatante Design has created a list of practical eco-friendly tips you can use to plan your own Lite-Green Wedding courtesy of The Bride's Cafe.

Brown emphasizes that every little bit counts and I think you'll find when you multiply each eco-friendly choice by your number of guests, the result is definitely worth the effort.

If you have any practical tips to planning your own green wedding, please share with all of us on the SmartBoards.

Green Gift Ideas For The Eco-Conscious Bride!


If you’re planning an eco-friendly wedding, keep your wedding registry green too. Here’s a great story about one couple that created a green wedding registry, asking guests to contribute towards solar panels for their home.
