Let your personal style – the values you believe in, the person you are and who want to become – shine through on your wedding day by making values-based decisions from the invitations you send to the location of your ceremony.
Rustic Eco-Chic Wedding — Your Style, Your Values
“Your wedding is a wonderful opportunity to showcase your style and express your personality. Far from the plastic fairytale offered by the wedding industry machine, thoughtful brides and grooms are planning weddings that are making a difference, without sacrificing style. Beyond your favourite colour and musical taste, your personal style is about the values you believe in, the person you are, and who want to become. Let your celebration be an outward reflection of your inner values and personal style.”
From the wedding dress to the invitations, from the jewellery to the flowers, from the gifts to the location, from the food to the photography, engaged couples are facing a myriad of choices and opportunities to let their values and style lead their decision making process for hosting a green and sustainable wedding. There are many new websites and blogs available online to offer helpful and insightful tips on best practices for greening your wedding including The Green Bride Guide.
When faced with the overwhelming number of choices, consider making one large, yet simple decision that will fully embrace your values and style. This decision will influence and bundle many of these difficult choices together making your planning process much easier.
