Couples who are conscious of conservation, sustainability and preserving the environment have given rise to eco-weddings. Eco-friendly locations have also mushroomed over the years, most of which are usually secluded and off-the-beaten path – adding adventure to the mix. You can choose from eco-friendly venues right down to a fully organic menu for the reception and this certainly adds a unique and distinctive experience for the couple and guests alike.
Another growing trend is for couples to engage socially responsible vendors who practice ‘fair trade’. An example would be to give away wedding favours that are handcrafted by groups who support and help sustain single women and their children. Some also make a donation in place of wedding favours to a charitable organisation of a meaningful cause.
Be it an eco-themed wedding or a more humanitarian effort, your wedding’s personal style need not be compromised!
