Spring is on the way and 2020 is in vogue for wedding extravaganzas!
Here at Anne Veck we love everything sustainable and eco friendly, and we wanted to share with you some tips to make your wedding better for our planet!
Number one (obviously), come get your hair done at Anne Veck!!! We are carbon neutral, and the whole salon is designed with “its good to be kind” in mind! We have recently changed our product line to work with Davines: an eco friendly and also carbon neutral all natural hair care range! Their packaging is made from recycled material and is recyclable again, and they have undertaken a tree planting initiative to help offset carbon emissions worldwide.
Number two, if you are still looking for some wedding rings, head on over to www.dirtyfrenchgirl.com, our resident jewelry designer and maker. An independent craftswoman, she makes everything herself locally to reduce her carbon footprint, and can design you the most beautifully bespoke wedding rings!
Number three, confetti! looks pretty, but a bit of a culprit when it comes to littering! We recommend buying a heart shapes hole puncher, and collecting leaves. Then when you’re chilling in the evening at home, binging some Netflix, get your hole puncher, get your leaves, and start punching away to your hearts content! You then have some beautiful heart shaped confetti that is totally environmentally friendly!
Number four, location location location! It is no secret that cars, planes, boats… vehicles of all kind are not great for our mother earth, so if you can choose a local venue that is easy to get to for yourself and your guests and keep that travel distance and time down!
Number five, if you haven’t decided on a decor yet, maybe go for the shabby chic, reusable, DIY look. Use potted plants instead of cut flowers, and try to plan what happens to said plants after your wedding day. Use things such as crates, jam jars etc.. for decoration. It might be a bit more work atn your end, but the end result is gorgeous and our planet will thank you.
I could carry on all day about tips and ideas to make a wedding more sustainable, but I’ll stop here. We hope to see you for your special day, so we can make it extra magical.
