Green weddings are becoming popular these days. Within the context of chic events accomplished with style and elegance, the brides and grooms try to decrease the impact of their function on the planet. Since there is now more of a demand, more and more green wedding sites are popping up, and Green Bride Guide is one of them.
Green Bride Guide is a great one-stop shop for everything wedding. The site,www.greenbrideguide.com, is comprehensive, offering tips, tricks, even an incredible earth-friendly registry, where guests can purchase carbon offsets to make up for the transportation of the wedding dress. Whether you are looking for USDA Organic or Fair Trade Certified items, the site has a number of great options all in one place. We love that, when you purchase an item from the site, the shipping of that item will be carbon-neutral.
Planning a completely green wedding is daunting, but Green Bride Guide’s blog offers pictures and a number of real-life examples as to how to make your wedding completely your own, while keeping Mother Earth in mind.
Our favorite item in Green Bride Guide’s shop is the 100% biodegradable “Save The Dates”: http://www.greenbrideguide.com/wedding-shop/product/wood-save-date-magnets-cut-out.
Green Bride Guide is a website we’d highly recommend to any bride. If you are looking for simple ways to reduce your wedding footprint, check it out!
