‘Green’ Tips for Your Winter Wedding in Eau Claire
Celebrating your commitment to each other doesn’t mean you have to compromise your commitment to being “green.” With a little extra planning, it’s possible have the day of your dreams and stay environmentally-friendly, even during a winter wedding in Eau Claire.
December is the second-most popular cold season month for weddings (just behind October) and environmentally friendly weddings are a hot trend this season. If your idea of matrimony pairs eco-friendly green with winter white, then check out our tips below:
Recycle and ReuseBefore reality shows like Bridezillas hit the airwaves, young brides were happy to wear their mother’s wedding dress. The green movement has revived this nearly forgotten tradition. Because a hand-me-down dress eliminates the need for new materials or energy, it’s great for the environment. Many brides also love the vintage look they can achieve with a repurposed wedding dress.
Wedding InvitationsThe invitation offers guests a glimpse of what’s in store. But guess what? You can still wow your guests with recycled paper – or electronic invitations. Electronic invitations require no raw materials and they make it incredibly easy to keep track of RSVPs online.
Choosing In-SeasonSimple steps, like choosing locally grown, in-season flowers and food (rather than out-of-season one’s that need to be imported) can make a big difference. Crop availability and harvest times vary from year-to-year in Wisconsin, so you’ll have to do some research – but there are plenty of in-season vegetables available during cooler seasons (e.g., broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, garlic and others).
