How to Make Your Wedding More Sustainable


With climate change the way it is, and plastic pollution getting worse every year, everyone is trying to do their bit to reduce waste where they can. But when it comes to planning a wedding, how on earth are you meant to do that and still have the day that you’ve been dreaming of? The answer is that no wedding will ever be 100% eco-friendly, but like with all big events, there are things that you can do to lower the environmental impact of your big day. Some of these ideas might not be feasible for you, but others are much easier than you might think at first and might even help your budget a little.


The Venue


If you are looking for a wedding that is more sustainable, the first thing that you’ll need to do is talk to your reception venue. You’ll be surprised at just how accommodating some venues can be. This is especially important if your venue offers catering as well. One way to have an eco-friendlier wedding is by ensuring that all the food provided is locally sourced. If you are keen to have a wedding that is as environmentally friendly as possible, why not have your reception out of doors? If you have it start earlier in the day, you’ll be making the most of the daylight and saving on electricity. Venues have lots of different ways that they do their bit to reduce waste, so don’t be afraid to ask them. There are hundreds of wedding reception venues for hire in London, so you’re sure to find the one that meets your needs.


Flowers


We’ve already mentioned about endeavouring to get your food from locally sourced suppliers, but what about your flowers? Depending on the time of year that your wedding is taking place, many flowers may have been imported from abroad, or grown in artificial environments in order to make them bloom out of season. We also have a love for more exotic flowers that would never naturally grow here. In order to reduce the environmental impact of your flowers, contact a local supplier who grows native blooms in season. Not only will you have flowers that are unique, you’ll also be doing your bit to support local businesses.


Invitations


Your invites are another way that you can cut down on waste and save some money in the process. Save the Dates are a must these days, but they are still a modern idea. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of sending them all out, then why not send a bespoke email to all your nearest and dearest instead? You’ll be sure to know that they got it from all the replies that will come flooding in, and it will save on paper as well! For those family and friends that still have difficulties with the internet, why not give them a call and let them know the date? They are sure to appreciate it and they can get it into the calendar right away. When it comes to the invites proper, you can still post physical ones! After all, they make great mementos. Just plan carefully the material that you are using. They don’t have to be big, as many couples have detailed information on a wedding website. You can even get ones made from recycled paper, which is definitely doing your bit for the environment. When it comes to RSVPs, this is where your website comes in again. Asking everyone to detail dietary requirements (and so on) online will help you keep organised and save everyone posting responses. Simple!


Centrepieces


If you are looking your décor to be sustainable, the best way to do this is to think reusable. There’s no need to buy centrepieces that are going to be thrown straight in the bin afterwards, you want something that can be used again. One great idea for this is books. You can choose your favourites and stack them for a literary theme and even give them out as favours at the end! Or you can head to your nearest charity shops and pick out some older volumes that need to be reused. Another great idea for centrepieces that turn into favours is to use plants such as succulents in individual pots. Have a sign saying, ‘take me’ and all your guests will be in love. If you do decide you want something else, check online for people that are selling the centrepieces from their weddings, and don’t forget to do the same after yours!


Go Second-Hand


Having a sustainable wedding means reusing items as much as possible. If you can grab some bargains on décor that others are selling after their wedding, even better! One trend has even seen wedding dresses being sold on to the next bride interested. And why not? After all, once a dress is dry-cleaned, it will look good as new. This is also a great idea if you have your heart set on a certain dress, but it’s from a couple of seasons ago. In this case, buying second-hand might be the only way to go! The same thing applies to suits. Many already go down the route of hiring a wedding suit as it’s unlikely to be worn again. Not only does this save money, but it’s a sustainable way of shopping as well.


If you’re environmentally conscious, then planning a wedding can cause a panic. Yet there are lots of things that you can do to ensure that your wedding is an eco-friendly day. Not only that, but it will also make your wedding reception truly unique and encourage other vendors that being sustainable is what today’s brides and grooms are looking for when organising their weddings.
