5 tips to green your wedding

*More and more brides-to-be are becoming concerned about the environmental impact of their wedding. Join them and green your wedding with 10 simple tips. Greening your wedding can also be a surprising way to save precious  bucks in this tough economy. Find out how:1. Send electronic invitations.
I was recently told that some family member—especially grandmothers— are still pushing brides to paper options and sometimes, even more expensive handwritten ones. Grandmas, we love you, but we are in 2012 and there is really no reason to waste money and paper in invitations that can get lost in the mail, while there is the possibility to safely deliver your invitations electronically, and FOR FREE! If you can’t renounce to the paper invitations, at least consider emailing save the date announcements.

2. Choose an environmentally responsible venue.
There is plenty of choice regarding venues, and what it typically comes down to is location and price. You will be surprised to see how you can save money and have a delightful location if you choose a local park or botanic garden.

3. Choose a green dress.
Yes, I know you want  a white dress but of course I was not referring to the actual color… There is ample choice of environmentally friendly fabrics and be sure you will not have to be restricted to rustic themes. There are green dresses for every style, from minimal to eccentric, from romantic to casual.

4. Choose green accessories.
Starting from jewelry, you don’t need to stick to diamond and freshly mined precious metals. Recycled sterling silver is a valid, durable and affordable option for bridal jewelry and wedding rings. If you want gold, there are artists who use only recycled gold. Yes, I say artist because I’m assuming that if you are reading this you’ll probably choose local artisans for your accessories. If you are even more adventurous, consider buying your of your bridesmaids jewelry from an  artist specialised in UpCycling and ReCycling.

Here at Twice we  just updated the wedding section of the online store, so make sure to check it out. We offer discounts and custom options for bridal parties.

5. Dump the flip-flop wedding favor.
Sure, guests love those little plastic shoes to replace their super uncomfortable heels at the end (some at the beginning) of the party but come on… how much plastic and rubber is going to be dumped in the garbage the next day!? Do you want your guests to be feet-pain-free? Add a reminder to the invitation for your guests to bring their own flat shoes or slippers. To encourage them to bring their slippers, you can plan to have a contest for the best or most extravagant slippers, and they’ll be grateful of having them at the hotels that night as well.
