Wedding season is almost here for all those lucky couples planning to say “I do.” For many couples, these days wanting to get married and saving money is very important. Luckily, with new DIY ideas spending money on a wedding planner isn’t even necessary and now there are more ways for you to save some green. In your pocket and on earth.
Eco-friendly weddings are slowly becoming the new thing for couples wanting to not only save money but also save the environment. In order to that, couples should consider digitizing their wedding RSVPs. Simply set up a digital system for your guests on your wedding website, send a link and instructions on how to RSVP and you’re all set. This way you’ll be saving money on all of the postage stamps and printing on top of not wasting any paper.
Something all weddings need is flowers, but there is a way to be strategic about it. Wanting your favorite flower to be draped around the ceremony is nice, but if your favorite flower happens to be out-of-season or exotic that means you will need to import it from other countries.
Which equals more money being spent. If you are trying to be eco-friendly then a suggestion would be to shop at a farmer florist where you can create an organic arrangement.
Using more greenery and potted plants or succulents can also be a good way to think of the environment and your budget. Once your wedding is over, donate the plants and flowers to a local hospital where they can continue to bring someone joy.
