The demand for green nuptials is on the rise, so voco St David’s Cardiff has come up with a constructive list to help you reduce the environmental and ethical impact of your big day.
When it comes to your invitations, try and utilise technology. Send out eco-friendly e-invites via email or social media.
Choose to have your ceremony and reception in the same venue to reduce your carbon footprint and choose a menu made using local, fair-trade and organic products.
Source pre-loved or vintage wedding rings and make your cake veggie or vegan. If that’s too drastic for you, aim for a menu that’s at least 50 per cent vegetarian.
Give your guests plant seeds as wedding favours, opt for a vintage wedding dress and adopt a zero plastic policy. These are all ways that you can help save the environment while still enjoying your nuptials.
