How to create an Eco-Chic Green Wedding
Contributors: Photographer: Mariya Molduvanova | Copy Editor: Senta Martz
An Eco-Chic wedding theme begins with a foundation of natural elements, amongst additional earth-friendly decor, and an incorporation of a basic triad of reused, repurposed, and recycled products.
Every designed piece started with an environment- friendly approach. Napkin rings were made from repurposed paper towel rolls and coffee beans. Cloth dinner napkins were measured and cut to an appropriate length from leftover fabric pieces. Wine glasses were made from repurposed wine bottles. Instead of place cards, seating assignments were written on an old windowpane to direct guests to their table.
Recycled paper products were used to create a modish and artistic invitation. Popcorn holders for locally cooked kettle corn were designed with the same concept. Menu cards and food product labels followed in suit. Berry pie from a locally operated baker replaced a traditional wedding cake.
The floral décor was kept simple, chic, and natural with a “garden-like” impression. Instead of vases, flowers were placed in reusable tin cans, antique crates, and empty cigar boxes. Twine and vegetables were added to give a “farm-to-table” feel. From menus wrapped in cabbage, to artichokes placed amongst flowers, different textures of plants, flowers, and vegetables gave the theme a unique touch.
