Green Your Wedding: Food

Treat your guests to organic apples at your wedding 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 #4: Serve Sustainable Cuisine

Reduce your wedding's environmental impact by serving organic food and wine. Ask your caterer about meals featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables that can be sourced from local farms. Some caterers even specialize in ecofriendly cuisine or vegan wedding cakes. Keep in mind that vegetarian dishes tend to be less expensive and more ecofriendly than meat courses.
