Inspired By Nature: Style Ideas for a Stunning Eco-Friendly Wedding
Like most events, weddings have an impact on the surrounding environment, wherever they are held. A burgeoning trend across the world is the eco-friendly wedding, one that has a responsibility towards the environment, ensuring that tying the knot isn’t detrimental to the planet.
While this is definitely a noble goal and something more wedding planners might want to consider, getting the aesthetic right is also very important. After all, the photos from your wedding will last a lifetime – so you’ll want to make sure everything is just right. This post will explain how your eco-conscious wedding can look stunningly stylish, with just a few simple tips.
Foliage and landscape
It seems obvious, doesn’t it? Picking a venue with plenty of natural landscape and foliage to create a stunning backdrop to your wedding photos is always a good option to make your cherished memories look fantastic.
Wedding photoshoots, and even the ceremony itself taking place in a national park is becoming ever-more popular for an eco friendly aesthetic, but it’s also important to consider your wedding party’s impact on the surrounding environment. Making sure that you leave no trace after utilising a natural area is very important if you’re serious about having a wedding that’s as eco-friendly as possible.
Catering is often the the biggest headache when it comes to planning a wedding. Once you have all the guests’ dietary requirements pinned down, you might want to consider making sure the food is sourced responsibly or in season.
By making sure that you source your wedding banquet from a local, organic supplier, you’ll be doing the environment a big favour. Rustic farms can be transformed into gorgeous wedding venues at the drop of a hat – just ask Hein & Rucelle Odendaal – and using local produce couldn’t be easier at an agricultural venue, so keep that in mind during your planning process!
Just remember, your wedding should reflect you and your partner, so get creative and tailor all of these tips to you. It’s your day, so plan it how you like!
