Go for vintage pieces.

Talk about something borrowed – taken to a whole new level! Be it a pair of earrings you got as an heirloom from your mom, to that exquisite hairpiece you got from the thrift shop, wearing a vintage piece is one less product sourced from Mother Earth.

Rent, instead of buying.

Ever thought of renting wedding dresses instead of buying them? If you’re not one overly-sentimental bride, you might not mind renting your outfit for the day, even renting wedding accessories too! Here are a few look-worthy dresses from Rent the Runway.

Opt for potted flowers and plants.

Don’t forget the candles!

If you’re planning to serve dinner outdoors, candles will definitely set the mood, without the need for electricity. Be careful about using too much though, as they’ll warm up the area. Try dimming the lights a bit and adding candles for an intimate flair.

Support earth-friendly suppliers and companies.

Look for wedding suppliers which give back to Mother Earth. This means companies who donate a portion of its earnings to foundations supporting environmentally-friendly causes, ones which source from naturally-grown materials, and more.
