Eco-chic tips!

Our intern, Megan, came up with these GREAT Eco-Chic Tips! I just had to share them since we have been talking so much lately about being "Green." Way to go, Megan!!!

1. Invitations- When choosing invitations, ask for options in recycled paper.

2. Candles- Add eco-chic lighting by using soy candles with cotton wicks! Check out "Aglow Soy Candle Company for additional product information!"

3. The Dress- Many designers are introducing eco-tech fabrics, like Annatarian, who uses bamboo, organic cotton, and peace silk in their "eco-couture"-gowns.

4. Decor- Find companies who specialize in decor made from eco-friendly materials, like Customized Wedding Creations.

5. Registry- With organizations like the I Do Foundation, you can create a charity registry. Your guests can log on and donate or the stores you register at can contribute.

6. Flowers- Just because flowers are plants doesn't mean all of them are eco-friendly. Talk to a florist, like our own Tiffany Mullen, for help finding some that are in season and use minimal pesticides.

7. Favors- Give your guests something to plant in your name such as flower seeds that coordinate your wedding flowers or a baby tree to plant. Check out " for more information."

8. Photo Album- This photo album is made of 100% recycled and acid-free paper. They are also produced using only wind power and proceeds from each book go to planting trees!

9. Trash the Dress- Instead of trashing your dress, donate it to an organization like Brides Against Breast Cancer.

Wedding Love and Hugs,
