Planning your destination wedding in Paris is going to be an incredible moment… Just as you have dreamt it! But, is planning an eco-friendly wedding one of your goals? Can Paris be the destination which can make you reach this goal?You’ll find some tips over here :

What is an eco-friendly wedding? 

A wedding is an important moment for everyone’s life. However, this event can create a lot of wastes which we can avoid. Taking care of our planet has to be our daily goal and it could be done even during such a beautiful moment as a wedding. Creating an eco-friendly wedding is first and foremost a wedding with all the services planned respecting our environment while having an ethical impact on your wedding.
The goal is to not waste too much and to take care of every detail with simple and eco-friendly details… Let’s do it! 

Your Wedding Venue…

Of course! Your wedding venue can also be eco-friendly. The first point is that you can choose a «green » wedding venue. A beautiful mansion with incredible gardens can be an option but you can choose to be original and plan all your wedding outside. Paris has a lot of venues with typical French gardens to enjoy your party.

You can also decide to plan your destination wedding in the South of France or in a country with best weather options such as Spain, Italy, Greece, … By Sabrina can also help you planning your destination wedding abroad France 😉 What about planning a wedding just illuminated by the light of vegetal candles?

Another point is that you can ask to your venue during the visits how can they help to to make your wedding eco-friendly. It can be a reduction of their wastes, of their energy thanks to solar panels for example. Have in mind that every venue can do something to plan an eco-friendly wedding. What are they doing to reduce their Carbone Neutral Status? What are they policy about plastic? 

For the catering, you can ask to your venue or to your caterer to use as much as possible vegetal and fair-trade ingredients for your menu such as for your wedding cake. Even if you do not want a complete vegan menu, you can make your menu respecting the environment as far as possible. Ask for using fair-trade and recycled material for your cocktail dinner for example.

Your Stationery and Wedding Favors…

These two parts of the planning are the gifts you are going to give to your guests. Indeed, I include the stationery as a wedding gift because it is something that your guests can keep for themselves.

The stationery can be made with recycled paper for example to keep it eco-friendly. You can also decide for the save-the-dates and invitations to send it through e-mail or to send a video for example, paper-free! For the stationery, a lot of new companies have been created and are specialized on recycled paper for example and can propose you an eco-friendly stationery with a lot of beautiful choices! You can also decide to plan to have only one item for your stationery.  

Concerning your wedding favor, prefer items from local shops such as little bottles of olive oil or a potted plant or flower that your guests can keep.

Your Decoration and Floral Arrangements

Here we go! With the catering, it is the main and most difficult service to keep it eco-friendly. Why? First of all, because we want a lot of flowers for our wedding and it isn’t really eco-friendly. It is the same for our decoration. We can deal with it…

For the flowers, many of you will not have in mind to have no flowers for their wedding. Your policy for your wedding floral arrangement should be no plastic. That’s why you should use vegetal and flowers. We advise you to prepare floral arrangements with flowers of your wedding season.
Also, prefer seasonly and local flowers. You can also use flowers and vegetal which are potted. If you want to use a ritual for your wedding, why not planting a tree? Or throwing dried flowers instead of rice? 

Regarding the decoration, you can decide to focus on the material of your decoration. Prefer recycled materials than plastic always, prefer items that you can re-use or give to your guests. You can also decide to rent your decoration, a lot of items can be rented!  I will be so happy to help you planning your eco-friendly weddings which is for me one of my values… Planning receptions while respecting our planet, that is the idea!
