Environmentally-conscious couples will aspire to minimise the carbon footprint of their wedding.
For couples that are environmentally friendly they can say ” I do” the envrionmentally way such as :
Keep them simple, use recycled paper and print on both sides.
Make a donation to a worthy cause on behalf of your guests in lieu of wedding favours.
If you really want to then perhaps consider giving away plants or gifts that are manufactured by the local community.
Something old, something borrowed
Consider having a your mother’s wedding dress re-styled or perhaps use her veil?
Have your makeup artist and hair stylist use organic and natural products.
Use local blloms whenever possible.
Incorporate organic candles into your decor. They create a soft, romantic ambience.
Choose a venue that is environmentally certified. Alternatively, get married outdoors.
Minimise carbon emissions
Choose a venue that is easy to get to. Cut down on travel by hosting the banquet at the same location as well.
Hire a bus to ferry the entire extended family instead of driving several cars.
P/s : If you are looking for an ebook that can help you in Malay wedding preparation you can read Perkahwinan Melayu – Panduan Persediaan Perkahwinan. This is really a good book.
