A Plastic-Free Wedding Trend

A Plastic-Free Wedding Trend

Environmentally friendly weddings

Considering greener options for your wedding is a great idea! Every year we witness the rise of eco-friendly weddings and we’d like to point out that it doesn’t mean that you will have a simple style or have to miss out on the details that make your wedding fun.

·   Plastic-Free Wedding Favors

There are so many options when it comes to plastic-free wedding favors that you could choose from. From plant-based beautiful soaps to succulents. When choosing your plastic-free favors, don’t forget your avoid the plastic, cellophane that is mostly used for packaging. A good rule to follow is that if it can’t be recycled, don’t use it.

·   Non-Plastic Fan And Accessories

The key is to go for options that can be used in more than one way. You can use a printable fan that doubles as the program for instance.

·   Balloons Are A No-No

We know that they look very pretty, but they are also bad for the environment. Most times, they end up choking the oceans and being a danger to birds and fishes. Try using flowers in place of balloons.

·   Signs And Decorations

Change your acrylic and plastic decorations for timber, bamboo or glass. They may cost a little bit more, but plastic takes about 1000 years to decompose depending on the type and even at that, doesn’t disappear completely. They are just reduced into smaller particles that stay on our planet forever.

·   Edible Cake Toppers

Having a completely edible cake topper instead of the usual plastic ones is better. Where you can’t get them or don’t want to have one, you can use beautifully designed timber or bamboo in place of the acrylic and plastic ones.

·   Biodegradable Confetti

The sustainable confetti trend is here to stay. Choose a flower, your favorite spice or leaves for your guests to throw at you. Avoid glitter, sequins and the normal confetti.
