Earth Day - Earth Friendly Wedding

Planning a socially- and environmentally-friendly wedding is a nice idea, but you've got enough to think about while putting together your big day…right? Actually, it’s never been easier to create a beautiful and Eco-friendly wedding. Here’s how:


Make an emissions-free statement by leaving your reception in a gas-free ride. If your wedding is outdoors, consider exiting in a horse-drawn carriage. Or, if you’re getting married near the water, jump in a boat and ride away on the waves—eco-friendly and incredibly romantic.


Let your special day live on a little longer by sharing it with people in need. Rather than toss all your still-gorgeous flower arrangements, donate them to a local hospital or convalescent home. The same goes for any leftover food—most soup kitchens and homeless shelters can arrange to have someone swing by your reception to pick up unused refreshments.


Look for a florist that offers pesticide-free flowers, which are just as beautiful as their chemically treated counterparts but far better for the environment. Or consider using a local vendor for seasonal blooms to cut down on transportation costs and fuel emissions. To go even greener with your greenery, choose a reusable centerpiece. Small trees or potted plants can become a beautiful and meaningful part of your garden or home decor after the big day.


Consider having your wedding in a local garden, museum or historic building. These are often run by socially conscious nonprofits, so your rental fee will support a good cause. Make sure to discuss where your rental fee will go; hopefully, at least a part will be put toward new programs and facility upkeep.


Avoid dressing your wedding party in fabrics that require dry-cleaning—the harsh chemicals used in the process are tough on the environment. Look instead for natural materials like linen or cotton, which are kinder on the environment and more comfortable for your bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Color Palette Tuesday: Purple & Teal

Here is a pretty little color palette that is perfect for a spring or summer wedding. It also has a vintage vibe to it and reminds me a bit of the 50s era. When I was originally searching for photos for today’s inspiration board, I was shooting for lavender, plum, & teal… and it ended up morphing in to this instead. I love the bright pops of pink/fuchsia against the light aqua backdrop. Yum!

Flowers & Their Meanings

When it comes to choosing flowers for your wedding there are a few things that every bride should consider.  Colors, textures, trends, season, and vase color are a few.  The meaning behind the flower you chose is also important to know so you’re able to put together meaning bouquets and centerpieces on your special day.
I put together a list of popular wedding flowers with their meaning to help you pick out your perfect arrangement.
Orchid – Love, Beauty
Magnolia – Love of Nature
Rose – Love, Joy & Beauty
Stephanotis – Marital Happiness
Tulip – Love, Passion
Peony – Romance, Prosperity
Lily of the Valley – Happiness
Iris – Faith, Wisdom
Baby’s Breath – Innocence
Calla Lilly – Magnificent Beauty, Royalty
Carnation – Gratitude, Remembrance
Gardenia – Purity, Joy
Daisies – Cheerful, Innocence
When in doubt think simple and classic and just have fun with it!
