Sustainable Wedding Ideas in Navy, Gold + Greenery
It all begins with the wedding invitations by Gold Leaf Calligraphycreated from recycled paper combined with seeds creating a beautifully textured paper that can be planted for an assortment of wildflowers. Artisan papers can be cut for the accompanying envelopes as well.
If you are searching for alternative full artisan papers, look for 100% PC. This means the items were made from 100% post-consumer recycled fiber. The details are handwritten, not machine reproduced, limiting further materials needed such as energy consumption, machine parts, toner cartridges or tossed extra cuts of paper. With a penholder, steel nib, and ink each piece is made with intention and care.
The bridal robe, veil, bouquet wrap, purse, cake table skirt, and hankie were all created by Unbox the Dress.该公司使妇女来自全国各地的妇女将家庭婚纱转变为更新的雷利福盖礼品，包括新娘配饰。
The Make-up and Hair care products were carefully chosen for their sustainability and zero waste qualities.Heather OBoyle Erman chose Tarte, Huda Beauty and Hourglass Cosmetics for our bride and bridesmaid because they are cruelty-free companies and a vast majority of their products are vegan.
This, in addition to the use of brushes instead of sponges, and towels in the place of disposable set up cloths, all makes an impact towards zero-waste, when it comes to consumable products, like cosmetics. Hannah Michele of Chrysalis Canton used Eufora International hair care products for their all natural, vegan, and eco-friendly qualities to keep your hair looking great all day long without adding chemicals to the air.
The Bridal gown and the Bridesmaid dress also came from Encore Resale Fashions,an upscale consignment shop that further reduces waste by selling previously worn dresses.
The Escort card display uses the same artisan seed paper as the invitations,greenery from the floral arrangements, and is pinned on a wood base calling guests to their seats. The wood stand can be created from palette wood refinished and refashioned. The leaves bring an accent of color and life to the display. Using common pins for sewing it’s a blend of something new, something old and something borrowed.
The reception items ensure as little waste as possible is produced, but also maintains a high-end style.The table settings use linens by L’nique Linens that can be reused and gives a luxury feel with gorgeous fabric. Detailed vintage items used for the table settings are from Staple and Layer, a local company that collects and rents items from vintage flatware, glassware and table settings to the dining table, to create a one-of-a-kind experience.
The place cards are leaves from the floral arrangements with names written by Gold Leaf Calligraphy further minimizing the amount of waste.
