How to environmentally ‘green’ your wedding

Without costing the earth you can easily include green choices in your event planning. Incorporate the mantra – Recycle, Renew, Reuse in your wedding planning process and you’re on the right path to reducing your event carbon emissions.

Wedding dress

Include visits to your local ‘op’ shops and secondhand shops, buy pre-loved on-line or ask if you can wear your mother’s or grandmother’s gown – what an absolute honour.
