Weddings can easily become very commercialistic and materialistic events. When a bride just wants to simply celebrate, the “all about me wedding culture” can be a bit overwhelming. Here are some simple ways to celebrate a bit more conscientiously.
One of my favorite parts of planning a wedding was visiting a small bridal consignment shop that sold vintage gowns. The owner was a delight- downright hilarious, actually– and her excitement for each dress’ story was contagious.
When sending invitations, consider a postcard for RSVPs or your thank you cards. (You save on postage and paper!) Vistaprint offers some frugal and attractive preprinted recycled paper postcards.
I’d love to hear about your wedding! Did you choose simplicity & sustainability? What are your suggestions?
