Eco Friendly Wedding Vendors Wanted

Calling all Canadian Eco Friendly wedding vendors! As 2016 wraps up I am preparing for the New Year with plans on expanding Eco Bride Project and I am looking for some help from you wonderful Eco Friendly artisans out there! I’ve been in contact with many of you over the past few years offering item highlights to show my followers and now I’d like to take our relationship to the next step (lol)!

Eco-Friendly Bridesmaid Gifts

  Having your friends stand beside you on your wedding day is truly an honour. These people have been a part of your life (maybe for a lifetime or a short time… doesn’t matter) but these are the people (or person) that you’ve asked to stand with you—so how do you say thank you? The “thank you” aspect of the wedding process is crucial. The “thank you” etiquette as stated by Emily Post’s 18th edition (highly recommend this book for anyone interested in etiquette) the “thank you” should be done in writing and done quickly (Post 630). For the bridal party gift giving timeframe there are typically two times that are traditional to give the gift. The first is on the morning of the wedding while you’re all getting ready together and the second is at the rehearsal dinner where you would give the gift after you toast each of your attendants. Now that you know the importance and the traditional etiquette of the “thank you” you might still be at a loss as to what to …

What to Consider When Planning an Outdoor Wedding

Things to consider before planning your outdoor Wedding. I can’t count the amount of time I’ve heard a couple say “we can’t afford much so we’re going to have an outdoor wedding.” While having a small BBQ in your backyard with a handful of friends and family will certainly save you money, if you’re still planning on a large guest count in a local park or on a farm, the task gets significantly more costly—potentially more so than renting an indoor venue! Consider the Basics Ceremony If it’s hot make sure there is some shade for your guests! Don’t line the lawn with cute hay bails and then watch poor Grandma and Uncle Joe pass out from heatstroke during your vows! If it’s hot provide fans (you can make your programs work double time as a fan too) Provide cool drinks if it’s hot and warm drinks if it’s cold. Cosnider encouraging guests to wear stylish hats Provide shawls if it could be cold HAVE A BACKUP. If it’s pouring rain, even if you’re ready …

Hello Eco-Conscious Wedding Enthusiasts,

My name is Britney and it is my intention to use this page as a platform for sharing ideas and inspirations to encourage environmentally savvy weddings. In Canada the average wedding costs $31, 685 and much of this money is spent on items and services that are later discarded. If the notion of going green seems intimidating then let me assure you that even small and thoughtful changes can make a large difference and these eco-conscious choices will help to make the special celebration less excessive. The general principle that this page follows is the simple rule of the three R’s — Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. There are many ways to integrate this principle and it’s much easier to do than you may think. Thank you for stopping by The Eco-Bride Project
