Q: We don’t have any eco-friendly vendors near us. What should we do?


So this is interesting because if you don’t have eco friendly vendors near you and you want to be sustainable, you’re going to have to get creative. So if you can hire a composting service, you can have them come to your venue and they will manage the waste sorting happening during the event. They’ll haul away the compost and then they handle the actual composting itself. And if you can’t do that, or in addition to that, you can get creative with your design. Flowers are not the only way to wow your guests. So things that you can do that are design related are things like upgrading your linens to something that’s nicer, thicker, it has a nice weight to it so it doesn’t show wrinkles. Things like different textures, like velvet are really nice. Also, pick out unique dinner wear and glassware. Use a mix of different sized and colored candles. Don’t forget about Led candles. Work with a lighting vendor that can emphasize certain areas in the venue. They can really work with you to create the atmosphere you want and create the energy that you want. And also this is a fun one if you’re getting married on a Saturday or a Sunday, see if the venue can connect you with the decor company, helping the couple getting married the day before you. So you can reuse any hanging decorations like greenery installations, flower installations, depending on the type of flower. If it’s something dried, like baby’s breath, drapery, lighting for your event as well, see if you can reuse it. And this way you split the cost with that couple, saving you both money and you’re giving the decorations and greenery a second life before it gets taken down. All right, that’s it.
