Inspiration board - Eco-friendly/Green Wedding

One of the rising wedding trends is a "green wedding" or an eco-friendly wedding. Since most people nowadays are getting more concerned about protecting the environment and living a healthy lifestyle, green weddings are being done by more and more couples.

It's not that hard organizing a green wedding. Many wedding suppliers are now offering eco-friendly favors, like cards made from recycled products, potted herbs, or seedling sachets. Or instead of giving favors, donate them to your local charity.

Some designers use hemp for the gowns. Your bridesmaids can wear dresses they could use again. For the food, you can choose organically-grown vegetables and gluten-free food. You can also choose to pick recyclable things for decor or silk flowers for your bouquet. Just remember the ever-famous line "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" and you'll see there are a lot of options you could choose from to create your own green wedding.

Here's an inspiration board that I came up with for an earth-friendly wedding.
