So I live zero waste, and want to minimize my wedding's footprint. It will be a winter wedding in Early March 2020. Here is what I have so far... Am I missing anything?
Using my friends wedding dress for mine
Using a secondhand dress
Packing up all left over food to donate
All real china/cutlery
secondhand decorations OR decorations that can be given a second life
Lots of natural decor
Plan to resell everything I used
Flowers only for the bouquets
Consumable favors-vs trinkets that will be thrown out
Asked the bar not to give out straws in cocktails/drinks
Working with companies that are also eco-conscious
Not having a gift registry-asking for funds to help us adopt instead
OMG FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO TELL ME TO NOT ASK FOR MONEY RELAX! I know what is polite and if you MUST know this is how I worded it on my registry webpage;
"We are so excited to begin our lives together as a family, and are honored to share our special day with you! If you would like to help us on our journey as a couple please know we do not have a gift registry as we are blessed with all we need already. If you still would like to contribute to our family we have started "The Leo Fund" to help finance our future plans to adopt."
I'm not actually saying "yo give me money" I don't need people policing me about how I word things in my post here, or what I should or shouldn't do... I was just looking for ideas... I didn't realize how judgemental people were on here or I wouldn't have even posted this... and that's why I'm trying to get this thread closed.
