At Forever Bridal, we’re all about making your wedding planning easier by connecting you to the right vendors, and keeping you up to date with the latest trends in the wedding industry. It would be a crime if we did not touch on climate change for the Eco-conscious couple.
Considering greener options for your wedding and becoming plastic-free is a great idea! Every year we witness the rise of Eco-friendly weddings. We’d like to point out that it doesn’t mean that you will have a simple style or have to miss out on the details that make your wedding fun.
- Plastic-Free Wedding Favors
There are so many options when it comes to plastic-free wedding favors that you could choose from. From plant-based beautiful soaps to succulents. When choosing your plastic-free favors, don’t forget to avoid the plastic cellophane that is mostly used for packaging. A good rule to follow is that if it can’t be recycled, don’t use it.
- Non-Plastic Fan And Accessories
The key is to go for things that can be used in more ways than one. For instance, you can use a printable fan that doubles as the program.
- Balloons Are A No-No
We know that they look pretty, but they are also very bad for the environment. Most times, they end up choking the oceans and harming the birds and fishes. Try using flowers in place of balloons.
- Signs and Decorations
Change your acrylic and plastic decorations for timber, bamboo, or glass. They may cost a little more, but plastic takes roughly 1,000 years to decompose. Depending on the type of course and even at that, it doesn’t disappear completely. They then slowly reduce into smaller particles that stay on our planet forever.
- Edible Cake Toppers
Having a completely edible cake topper, instead of the usual plastic ones is way better. If you can’t get them or don’t want to have one, you can use beautifully designed timber or bamboo in place of the acrylic and plastic ones.
- Biodegradable Confetti
The sustainable confetti trend is here to stay. Choose a flower, your favorite spice, or leaves for your guests to throw at you. Avoid glitter, sequins, and normal confetti.
