TreeHugger Picks: Tips for a Green Wedding


With summer just around the bend, chances are that if you aren't involved in a wedding, you'll be invited to one. Here are some ways for the bride and groom-to-be to green their big day.

1) Get an ethically-made dress. Since wearing the dress is a one-time deal, you can also get a paper dress (admittedly, a bit farfetched, but a nice idea nonetheless).
2) Go with recycled rings and avoid the toxicity and cruelty often associated with precious metal-mining.
3) When it comes to planning the big day, there are TreeHugger-minded services to help make it memorable and keep it green. You can even register for green gifts.
4) Avoid tiny, wet pieces of messy paper and stick with flower petal confetti for a beautiful, sustainable decoration.
