Candles:
Instead of using the common petroleum-based candles that you find in many stores, use soy or beeswax candles. Also check that the candles have cotton wicks to help avoid lead.

Votive Holders and other small decorations:
Don’t purchase any small decorations that can’t be gifted to guests or used for another event. Don’t spend money on things that will just end up in the landfill by the end of the night.

DIY:
Many decorations can be made by you or your crafty friends and family members. Know a good seamstress? Have her sew the table cloths or runners. Other crafty friends can help you create favors, various decorations and much more.

It’s much easier than many think to have more eco-friendly wedding decorations. Don’t be afraid to get creative! You will not only save money, and have a greener wedding, but you will also create a personalized and unique wedding that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
