1) Go Paperless! We have a 100% green solution for all your wedding invitations and thank-you cards: video save the date/invitations and video thank-you’s! It easy, fun and will save you a ton of time and money. Your invitation process will be transformed into a simple unique interactive experience. You and your fiancé can record a special video invitation for your guests, then track their acceptance and number of attendees in real-time. You can even record your video in multiple languages. Oh, and the best part, its 100% environmentally friendly.
Same concept with the video thank-you’s. What’s great about this is that Eventastic Weddings also has a universal gift and cash gifting registry. All your gifts are organized in one location making it easy to send a personalized video message to thank them for specific wedding gifts they gave you. You’ll be organized for quick and easy thank-you’s, i.e “Thanks Uncle Bob for the blender and great seeing you at the wedding” This new technology is amazing, personal and eco-friendly.
2) Food- Go Local: Consider feeding your guests organic foods from local farms. Many caterers will be willing to substitute organic, locally grown foods for conventional varieties. If you have the time, you can contact local farms yourself. Often they will give you a discounted price when you purchase food directly from them. Also, if your venue doesn’t compost, many farms will gladly accept leftover food for their gardens. Consider asking about locally grown flowers too.
3) Go Green With Transportation: Why take separate vehicles and burn all those fossil fuels when you can double, even or triple-up in something like a stretch limo? Or better yet, rent lots of hybrid cars instead of getting that environmentally un-friendly Hummer your hubby has been longing for. Or have a fairy tail wedding and have a horse and carriage!
Happy Wedding Planning!
