Glamourously Green Wedding Tips, California Eco Wedding

The options are truly endless, but here are a few simple tips to get the ideas flowing...

-Choose vintage rings, whether a family heirloom or an antique find
-Choose "conflict-free" or lab-created diamonds
-Hold ceremony and reception in one location (also cost-effective!)
-Use recycled or handmade papers for your invitations and soy-based inks
-Choose a vintage or hemp-silk wedding gown
-Opt for organic and/or locally grown flowers
-Use local, organic, seasonal foods
-Serve organic wines
-Don't give disposable plastic favor items that no one wants anyway. Opt for organic chocolates or give guests a donation to your favorite charity in their name.
-Register for your gifts somewhere that will donate part of the amount to your specified charity.
