Going Green- Part One

Posted by C&G on Tuesday, March 24, 2009

Over the next few posts, we’re going to share some easy ways to go green. We’re fans of the earth- but also of being realistic when it comes to greening up your wedding day! (we won’t be suggesting you send e-vites)

Let’s start with your stationery. Let’s face it, many people take one look at your invitation and then throw it in the trash. And while I previously suggested that I’m not a fan of the e-vite, I do think there are ways to cut down on excessive paper use. One of the easiest things you can do is
double sided printing. If you plan on including hotel information on your save the date, print it on the back side. This gives your guest one less piece of paper to keep up with and one less thing to trash. Another thing you can do is use a printer that uses recycled card stock. Many printers have a multitude of recycled stocks and usually don’t charge a premium for using them. Our couples are often on the fence about doing a program. Although the ceremony is the most important part of the day, it’s not a terrible idea to forgo the program and just have your guests pay their full attention to the ceremony without trying to read ahead! Little things like these can add up quickly. And not only will they make you look eco-savvy, you’ll be saving some money!
