The newest trend in nuptials is saving the earth, one wedding favor at a time. Modern brides are more environmentally savvy than ever; this fact, coupled with a desire to save money in an economic downturn, has many reconsidering the traditional logic behind the trappings of traditional weddings. If you need proof, eco-friendly weddings are listed as the fifth most popular wedding trend in 2009. Instead of thinking about the 'big day', brides are considering the big picture instead.
Brides thinking of a 'green' wedding, should consider the following tips to save the planet, and some cash as well:
1.Go digital: build a web page or use Facebook to announce your wedding and use a digital camera to take all of your wedding photographs. These tactics can reduce the paper used at the event and even save money.
2.Move the venue of your wedding reception close to the site of the wedding. Cutting down on the travel time.
