Your wedding invites are probably the reason why million of trees are cut every year. Have you ever given it a thought that how you can cut your budget and some slack on the environment by using alternative invitation methods?

No harm to your pocket or the environment!
Probably the most important of all, how to chose and eco-friendly wedding venue? The answer to it is having your wedding outdoors at a suitable time where all your lighting and etc can be derived from the sun. Go for a wood wedding location, vineyards, barns, ranches etc.
Hmm, so this is something endless like the sky. DO whatever you have to but cut out on decorations like plastic or paper. But if you still want to have it, and then make sure they are recyclable. Go for reusing old stuff, or renting the stuff so that nothing goes waste.
You can have mason jars in centerpieces with either flowers or potpourri in it or still better why not keep small saplings of small flower pots!
Go or kites and lanterns as a part of decorations.
A tire swing tied to a tree is not that bad an idea for a photo booth.
Use minimum flowers for decoration but let them be a statement or if you love flowers then make sure the decoration is done in such a way that still minimum flowers are used.
Why enter on a Harley when you have a bike? Well bike as in a bicycle. After all, it is an eco-friendly wedding so let’s just make sure that the vehicle for the bride and the groom is equally in sync with the theme too!
These decorations are just a fair idea to what all you can include. Of course, the list is endless!
If you want to have an eco-friendly wedding the best of it is having a vegetarian menu. Meat industry takes gallons of water every year and having a vegetarian wedding would be a small contribution from our side towards water conservation.
