For those of you wanting to keep things low key, consider natural organic and fair trade fabrics for the dresses or peace silk which is made from already damage cocoons that have been left by the worm when hatching. It is fairly simple to organize an organic and locally sourced wedding breakfast or a vegan wedding cake through either your venue or a local catering firm. Choosing wine with real corks will help stop the destruction of the cork forests as the demand for cork decreases and the farmers choose to use the land for other less planet friendly uses. You can then consider subtle extras such as 'grow your own' wedding favors or use of 100% recycled card for your invites and other stationery. If you are keen to support a particular group working towards a greener planet then why not incorporate a cleverly themed short quiz or game into one of the speeches asking guests to donate a pound or two towards your chosen cause.
For those with green issues in mind, there are many ways that a wedding can help to support the protection of the planet with no need to compromise on ensuring that your day is among the happiest of your life. There are in fact many small but very green changes that can be made that will actually add to the wow factor.
Saying "I love you and I will be yours forever" can be done simply and elegantly in a number of eco friendly ways as you pick your wedding rings
