Decoration, flowers and favours


Wedding decoration on nature themeFor your table decoration, choose natural centrepiece such as flowers, fruit, branch, seeds... As there is a growing mass of couples willing to put the environment on their list of priorities many suppliers are now offering environmentally friendly decorations. The main point of having an eco-wedding is to reduce waste, carbon dioxide emissions and pollution without compromising on elegance when possible.

For example, if you are planning to use balloons for children or as house decoration, you could consider having 100% natural biodegradable latex.

And as far as the flowers are concerned, avoid commercial flowers off lifted in around the world contributing to air pollution and prefer seasonally flowers grown at home without use of pesticides. The best solution is to raise your flowers in your own garden that you would pick on your wedding day. This would give you the opportunity to choose the flowers that you really like and make it reflect your personal style.

Why not create an original wedding favour for your guests to take home? There are now a great amount of gift suppliers offering eco conscious wedding presents. 
You could think of organic products like chocolate or candies in recycled papers. Other unusual items such as a plant or DIY cake recipe with organic products are also very appreciated.

With these ideas of natural wedding favours, your guests could also become conscious about the damage we are making to our planet through your project. By giving them a tree, bamboo plant or a flower to grown on their own, they could also contribute to reducing carbon footprint on the Earth.
