I’m often asked what constitutes a “green” event. A few
adjustments can make any event a little easier on the environment. Below are just a few ideas:
Invitations, guest book, programs, etc on recycled paper.

available through Coordinately Yours.
Use of organic flowers (no harsh chemicals are used),
potted flowers, and tree branches can make your event a
little greener. Also, select in season and local flowers so
that minimal energy is used in transportation. Below are
flowers picked from a field encased in twigs found.
Select organic food and wine or a caterer that uses locally grown food.
Choose a central location so that the majority of your guests don’t have to travel.
Favors are often thrown away. In liu of them, give a
donation to your favorite charity. Other options include
seedlings or edible favors.
Select a vintage gown or a gown made of certified organic cotton.
Rather than purchasing a new ring, commit with an heirloom ring.
