As we count down to Friday, we decided to celebrate the nuptials of Prince William and Catherine Middleton by offering royal-wedding-inspired tips. This week, we show you how to green your wedding just like Wills and Kate — even if you're not exactly British royalty.
Tip #2: Request gifts that do good.
In lieu of a traditional gift registry, William and Kate set up a charitable gift fund to support their favorite causes. Instead of filling your palace with a bunch of stuff you don't really need, consider following in the royals' footsteps by asking guests to help save rhinos, tigers, or elephants instead of buying you another blender or toaster.
