Pretty Pastels: Sustainable Spring Items for Your Eco-Friendly Wedding

Go green for your big day with these great tips

Add these green goodies to your warm weathered wedding.

Bright pastels are never out of season in early spring.

Look for plantable invitations printed with soy or vegetable inks in the prettiest shades and designs. For a backyard wedding, 100 percent recycled tissue paper pompoms can be hung from trees for a whimsical, flowery look. Walk down the aisle with a bouquet made out of vintage maps. The warm and cool colors of the states and water will match your pastel scheme perfectly.

Dress up your cupcakes in vibrant liners and have your bridesmaids wear sustainable feather fascinators in bold colors. If you want a more suble look, try some periwinkle blue flower crowns. If you prefer a traditional flower bouquet, choose fantastic shades of yellow, blue and purple.   You can even adorn your special bouquet with a handcrafted ceramic memento charm. Break tradition with your ring choices and find an eco-friendly ring pairing in a vibrant color, like green or purple box elder.   Your green wedding will be glowing with the spirit of the season and your guests will still be talking about it come summer!
