Green Bride Guide

A park wedding is perfect for spring and summer, get a little guidance on how to pull it off from these tips.

Support your local city and state parks by hosting a gorgeous green wedding surrounded by nature.

Do your research and see if the parks donate a portion of your wedding costs to preserving wildlife or supporting park cleanups.

Here are 5 eco-friendly products and ideas that will complete your eco-chic park wedding:

1. Perfect Picnic Set

What would a day in the park be without a picnic?

Instead of a formal sit down reception, set out picnic sets and blankets around the park and provide your guests with a relaxed picnic atmosphere. Make sure you have a rain plan and set up tents so it doesn't rain on your cheese board and wine. Many woven baskets are imported from overseas, and have a large carbon footprint. This set is made in the USA from 100% eco-friendly materials - right down to the recycled glasses. To register for this and other eco-friendly wedding gifts visit our Green Gift Registry!

This set includes a beautifully woven basket, four bamboo plates, bamboo cutlery, a bamboo cutting board, four dishwasher safe wine glasses made from recycled glass and four organic machine washable cotton embroidered napkins.

2. Framed Chalkboard Welcome Signs

Don't lead your guests astray! Instead of creating hundreds of paper wedding menus, programs and signs, why not use a customizable chalkboard sign? You can hang these around the park on metal posts, lean against trees or prop up on your reception table.

3. Plantable Heart Fans

These are fun favors for your guests. Fan away the heat or the pesky bugs in the park. You could also use these as quirky photo props for your fun photo shoot in the park. After the wedding, plant these fans and watch them grow!

4.  Sage Leaf Wrap Ring

Give your bridesmaids nature inspired jewelry cast from real leaves and made from recycled silver. This Sage Leaf Wrap Ring by One Loom Studio is complete with a sparkling moonstone.

5. Organic Cotton Racer Back Gown

This elegant and understated dress is perfect for a beautiful day at the park. Complete the look with a Silk Flower Crystal Headband or a glittery Crystal Tulle Cuff.
