There are a number of approaches you can take when it comes to choosing an environmentally-friendly reception venue. These days, there are some venues like Mohonk Mountain House that cater to green weddings. Such establishments offer local, organic menu items, along with such touches as flowers from their own greenhouse and even green features throughout the facility. You can also take details into consideration like having your wedding at a location that is convenient for the majority of your guests or deciding to combine the ceremony and reception at the same location. Both of these options will cut down on guest transportation. You could also choose an outdoor venue that will need less decorating and in which you can incorporate nature as ornamentation. Another idea is to find an organization you would like to contribute to such as an art gallery or botanical garden that allows private events.

The Rings

Diamond rings hold a great deal of controversy for those wishing to protect the environment and its people, Rather than choosing what could possibly be a "blood diamond" associated with mining in war zone or the funding of various conflicts, go with a lab-created diamond or choose a company known to use only conflict-free diamonds. A better plan may be to purchase vintage rings as a means of reusing existing materials. These items may be antiques and often have unique character not seen in modern jewelry. You could also demonstrate your own personal style by choosing a colored gemstone for your engagement ring.

The Invitation

There are so many options when it comes to eco-friendly invitations. You can make a great impression with gorgeous stationery and still be kind to the earth. Look for recycled, hand-made or tree-free papers. Other materials for paper production include bamboo, organic cotton or banana stalks, among others. You can even look for paper that is processed without chlorine and printers that use soy or vegetable-based inks. There's no rule stating that you have to go the traditional route and send of a multi-piece invitation that includes multiple envelopes and reply cards. Go with a a pretty postcard instead. For the very modern bride and groom, online or email invitations are an options. Setting up a wedding blog will allow you to communicate all the pre-wedding event details like bachelor or bachelorette parties and the bridal shower without sending paper invitations.

These are just three areas in which you can consider alternatives to traditional wedding details as a means of going green. Using some creativity and taking your lifestyle into consideration, and you'll surely be able to add to the list.
