With so much focus on what we can do to help the environment, there is an emerging trend of Eco-Friendly Glam. Wedding ceremonies and receptions can be your chance as a couple to celebrate your environmental stewardship as a nod to your forever future together and can help kick start your guests to the Eco-Friendly Glam path.
Keeping waste to a minimum and repurposing items are a great place to begin but keeping a fine balance of glam in your eco-friendly inspirations is the ultimate goal for a flawless event. Choosing local and organic food sources for your catering, using vintage décor and even a vintage gown and suit, purposeful wedding favors, water saving elements with over the top amazing outdoor restroom rentals, and a consideration for locally sourced live floral arrangements are all among our top list of favorite tips and trends into Eco-Friendly Glam.
Vintage Gown, Suit, & Décor!
A fabulous Eco-friendly venue is one that comes with most of its own décor. Whether it be through amazing architectural designs that need little accenting or a mature outdoor landscape providing its own live flowers and foliage. With the extra little items use to accent the happy couple’s personality and interests, a touch of vintage décor such as old books and antiques from any interest or hobby sourced from either the local shop on Main Street, Grandma’s attic, or go extra eco-savvy with vintage rentals – the more couples are able to share different items whether it be throughout the generations or throughout the season, the better!

The Catering: Keep it Local, Keep it Fresh, Keep it Organic!
Being in the Northwest, we are surrounded by some of the freshest meat, dairy, and produce in the country. Organic has been become a household norm and our farms and food suppliers are listening! Home to some of the best honey crisp apples, black berries and raspberries, wild chanterelle mushrooms, filberts (or hazelnuts to all you non-northwesterners!) locally owned and operated dairies, wineries, and breweries, it is no wonder so many of our caterers have opted for seasonal menus to be able to offer the freshest ingredients all year-round. Keep your caterer closely involved in your guest counts to avoid waste for the compost. End up with too much extra food? Consider donating it!

The Restrooms: Beauty & Environmental Stewardship in One Package!
Often times, an eco-friendly venue may have an abundance of natural beauty, but they may be lacking in some of the basic necessities for a ceremony and reception lasting into the evening. Don’t let a lack of restrooms deter you from your dream wedding venue!

Fresh, Local, Live Floral Design
The choices in floral design can be overwhelming. Style, color, cut, arrangements or bouquets, singles or bunches; the choices are endless! When choosing eco-friendly glam options, keep local availability in mind. Ask your florist what their local vendors have available season to season to help avoid costly delivery fees while also keeping an eye on that carbon footprint. Want to go the extra mile? Choose live plants and floral designs! Potted ferns and flowers, live mosses, shrubs, trees, are all wonderful examples of sustainable floral design. And the best part, with a proper green thumb these live florals can be a lasting reminding of your budding love for seasons to come!
