"#12. When shopping for gifts for each other, the bridal party or those special friends and family members, be sure to choose products that use the minimal amount of packaging possible."

This seems like a pretty lame bit of advice. instead, how about having a wedding party of 2 (or 0) instead of 8 or 12, not asking them to buy new matching clothes they'll wear once, and not giving gifts at all? I know a great gift as a bridesmaid would be to NOT have to buy a $400 disposable dress...


How about buying wedding attire from thrift stores or consignments stores? Most wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses are only used ONCE, and I would actually feel more "green" purchasing dresses that have been used ONCE before!

Besides, that takes care of the "something old" rule right there.

CATERER? How about having a potluck? Is that too tacky nowadays? I did it at my last wedding, and it was completely FUN. Great food, BTW

Round up your friends and neighbors to provide their homegrown flowers. It can actually be tremendously lovely and so much more meaningful than purchasing from a pricy "eco-friendly" flower seller.

Would you not find much more value, in more ways than one, by having lovely bouquets of spring/summer bloom provided by Aunt Edna's 50 year old flower garden?

Instead of researching the most organically correct site to rent, perhaps find a friend or aunt with a lovely local garden for that special day. As most wedding attendees would probably be local, that would save on that big carbon footprint created by those set on a "remote and charming eco-friendly" site that requires much car/plane whatever travel.

Is this too white trash? Or simply simple cost savings while staying green?????


And the wedding kiss! While we are at it, hook the horny newlyweds up to a Kiss-o-Meter that capture that incredible burst of electricity that could fire up some killowatts for the band....

We can do it all! :)
