Green Your Wedding: Invitations

Send digital invitations or use recycled paper Weddings inspire and delight us, but these sacred events have grown into resource-sapping affairs. If you're wondering how to pull off your dream celebration without a huge carbon footprint and an empty bank account, refer to this week's tips to help you work some ecofriendly wedding magic.

Tip #1: Use Less Paper

Wedding invitations offer the perfect opportunity to send a green message. Twisted Limb Paperworks and Green Field Paper Company sell handmade, recycled paper as well as seed-embedded cards that guests can plant after the ceremony. Other paper-saving (and money-saving) options include sending digital invites and managing RSVPs online. Set up a wedding Web site to provide paperless maps, hotel suggestions, and event schedules for your guests.
