{Organic Wednesday} The Green Bride Guide

Yes! I finally finished reading The Green Bride Guide book! It is the best selling green wedding book on the market. Comprehensive, easy-to-access resource for anyone interested in planning a green wedding. It provides readers with general advice and specific eco-friendly ideas. I'll be adding a lot from this book to my Wednesday post! Buy your own copy here: buy now You can also go on to their website to find TONS of great Eco-friendly information, vendors, and green gifts. www.greenbrideguide.com


Why incorporate green wedding details? The average wedding costs almost $40,000 (WHOA!!) and weddings are a $60+ billion industry. Having a green wedding is an opportunity to make a difference by supporting companies that actively incorporate social and environmental responsibility into the way they do business. Each one of the 2.5 million weddings this year in the United States will produce 400-600 lbs of garbage. That's a lot of waste!

  1. Great reading suggestion! I was actually watching Access Hollywood yesterday, and there was an actress on as a guest who had just gotten married...she said that she ended up with only one bag of trash by the end of the wedding - everything else she had composted, recycled, etc. It's really amazing how much we can conserve when armed with the right information!
