Eco-chic Indian Weddings
For millennial and Gen Z couples, incorporating sustainability and eco-friendliness into their wedding is a no-brainer. Indian weddings are known for their grandeur and opulence, but why not make it unique and environmentally responsible? Here are some tips on how to have a sustainable and eco-friendly South Asian (or non-South Asian!) wedding that speaks to your values. Say yes to a stylish, responsible celebration!
Sustainable Wedding Favors: Show your guests appreciation with thoughtful and sustainable wedding favors. From seed packets and potted plants to reusable water bottles, cloth tote bags, and these gorgeous, artisanal sustainably-made decor pieces from Eki Beki, you can thank your guests in an eco-friendly way.
Choose a Venue with a Green Philosophy: When selecting venues for your multi-day event, choose at least one that practices eco-friendly initiatives and has a commitment to sustainability. From utilizing renewable energy sources to having a composting program in place or having the ceremony outdoors in daylight, your venue can play a big role in reducing your wedding’s carbon footprint.
Also, select a catering service that emphasizes locally sourced, organic and seasonal ingredients for eco-friendliness, ultimately supporting your local farming community.
Support Local Farmers with Decor & Catering Options: Choosing local and seasonal flowers & decor from farmers in your community, not only minimizes your carbon footprint but also brings freshness and vibrancy to your special day.
In this digital age, there’s no need for paper invitations. Save money, time, and most importantly, trees. From digital invitations and save-the-dates, to electronic signage at your wedding, going digital is a simple but impactful way to make your Indian wedding more sustainable. Use Paperless to create your own digital invites!
Reduce Plastic Waste: Plastic pollution is a pressing issue - ditch disposable plastic plates, cutlery, and glasses and opt for reusable or biodegradable alternatives instead.
In conclusion, incorporating sustainability and eco-friendliness into your Indian wedding celebration is a beautiful and meaningful way to make a difference. Embrace this opportunity to plan a wedding that reflects your values and makes a positive impact on the world. Start your eco-friendly Indian wedding planning journey today and create memories that will last a lifetime.
