Reducing Carbon Footprints through Sustainable Wedding

Posted June 1, 2012 by in Articles | No comments yet

Tolerable wedding is a fairly new buzz word in the wedding planning industry but the idea of supportability is an old but still very relevant idea. It is a idea that is actually now more topical as the ravages of global warming are becoming evident. It is a idea that’s not anymore only being embraced by environmental activists and ecologists but by the public.

Turning Green

Environmental awareness or ‘going green ‘ isn’t anymore just a trend but now part of a world movement that is gradually taking hold on the consciousness of people and diverse prescribed sectors, including the govt. and business sectors. Green wedding isn’t just a motif but a social responsibility on the part of the wedding planners and all those concerned in organizing wedding events.

Marriage events may not seem to have important environmental impact but any effort to reduce carbon footprints is always excellent. Tiny efforts in minimizing pollution and needless consumptions can be magnified if many individuals are contributing.

Many techniques can be used in planning and implementing supportable weddings but the bottom line is about reducing the total carbon emission. From the cooking and transport of food to the reception location to selecting decorations and giveaways, from sending invitations to seating arrangements, from lighting to sound system, supportable weddings is all about minimizing wastes. Of course, this is virtually impossible to do without considering the means of improving resources and energy.

Minimizing Costs

Marriage is a very special event but it doesn’t necessarily need to be expensive to make it truly memorable and significant. Reducing the expenses is not only economically practical but also environmentally sound. As an example, barely used garbs, dresses and decorations can be reused rather than purchasing other ones. In this manner, wastes apropos additional expenses and potential trash can be evaded or at a minimum reduced.

Selecting local caterers, wedding supply stores and other services can also noticeably cut back the cost and carbon emission footprint of a marriage event. For one, the quantity of carbon-based fuel that must be burned in terms of transporting food, equipment, and supplies can be reduced.


Selecting a wedding venue in Melbourne is also vital not merely in conditions of distance or location but also apropos the available electrical kit ( including sound systems ), tables and chairs, and building design. Selecting an outdoor or open air locale is more environmentally supportable to some extent compared to selecting an enclosed, air-conditioned locale. This is presuming that the weather will permit such outdoor wedding reception. Gardens are ideal for this reason. Finding the right location will not only supply the convenience in terms of accessibility but also will permit wedding events to attenuate financial costs and carbon footprints.
