Discover all the wonderful ways to use this color to create a memorable theme for your wedding.
Wedding table decoration
Have your table linens be in your shade of green or having a white tablecloth with green table runners is very attractive. Then tie the napkins with green ribbon and top off the look by having green tulle tied around the guest chairs.
Those pretty flowers you see at every wedding are, in fact, likely quite toxic. Sprayed with dozens of chemicals to prevent insects from eating their beautiful blooms, these flowers are that not great for the environment, and even the workers who handle them on a daily basis have fallen ill. And if you order birds of paradise, gardenias, or other exotic flowers that must be shipped from abroad, you’re permitting yet another truck, loaded with diesel fuel, to get on the road. Instead, choose seasonal flowers that are homegrown, thereby supporting your local farm subsidiary. Another great green wedding idea is to grow your own flowers, though you’ll have to start months in advance. If you choose this method, you can keep the flowers in the pots, leaving them just as they are – simplistic, but elegant centerpieces.
Use green blooms, ivy, ferns and other greenery as part of your wedding centerpieces. Adding green marbles, moss or pebbles to the centerpiece is also a lovely idea.

Many stationery and bridal supply companies now offer green wedding invitations and save the date cards on 100% recycled paper. Another option is to send pretty postcards (made from recycled paper of course), which will cost you a lot less in postage prices.
