Happy Earth Day!

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

It doesn’t have to be Earth Day for us to think about making less of an impact on our environment.  Here are some of the tips that will help make your wedding green:

1) Use green invitations.  Believe me the quality of recycled paper has come a long way from the 80’s.  This elegant invite gives you the chance to change the world one simple choice at a time.  The paper is made with 100% post-consumer fibers and created without the use of chlorine compounds.  The manufacturer uses a significant amount of renewable energy resources and responsible forest management practices.  http://www.mystylishwedding.com/store/invitations-c-1/go-green-green-seal-certified-recycled-invitation-p-813

2) Banish disposable water bottles!  Hand out these gorgeous re-usable water bottles as favours instead.  These sturdy metal bottles can be personalized any way you like and will help encourage your guest to kick the plastic habit as well!  These were a good example of a customer asking us for something specific that we didn’t have on our site but we sourced them!  Send us an email if you would like us to do the same for you.

3) Use a beautiful seating chart instead of placecards.  We love seating charts because they don’t waste all that cardstock and are made using post-consumer material.  The best part is that they are 100% customizable.  Our brides love them so much that they often hang them in their home after the wedding. http://www.mystylishwedding.com/store/wedding-day-printing-c-30/seating-charts-p-650
