How Green Was My Wedding

Posted By Olivier Lalin -
Have You heard of a so called "organic" catering company or an "Organic" Bouquet , even a new online site,, made its appearance last month, catering to “eco-savvy brides and grooms.” And an ECO friendly wedding Guide published in Brides magazine. WAH !

I love those words specially when they are used by companies in the US who offer Eco friendly services to Eco Friendly Brides!
I just read an article published in the New York time by MIREYA NAVARRO - Title goes by : " How Green Was My Wedding "
Simply is Wonderful to find out that Vendors inn the wedding industry are participating to create a better World!
"... Use hydrangeas, berries and other local and seasonal flowers for her bouquet and the decorations, instead of burning up fuel transporting flowers from faraway farms. Design an organic autumnal menu (same reason). Find a vintage dress to avoid the waste of a wedding gown that will never be worn again.

“It’s well worth it to start your life together in a way that’s in line with your values and beliefs,” said Ms. Harrison, 28, a graduate student at Yale, who is to marry in October. “You don’t want this event that is supposed to start your life together to come at the expense of the environment or workers in another country.”

Call Ms. Harrison the anti-Bridezilla, whose wedding is all about the planet, rather than “all about me.” People in the wedding business say the eco-friendly or “green” wedding has arrived, its appeal having expanded to spur a mini-industry of stores and Web sites offering couples biodegradable plates made of sugar cane fiber and flowers grown according to sustainable farming practices...."
I will just finish with a picture of Myself carrying My bride's ECO-Friendly bouquet of hibiscus while Yanique was playing the Photographer!
