Eco Friendly Wedding Ideas
1. Eco-Friendly Wedding Ring
Right before we've even got to the 'I do', consider using antique rings, upcycled rings, and sustainably sourced wedding rings. For something out of the ordinary, create a completely unique design by providing your own materials to Eco Wood Rings for them to create a truly personal piece of jewellery.

2. Sustainable Stationery
One of the easiest ways to go eco-friendly. Ditching the paper and going digital. Postponed wedding? Send out a digital announcement with Quiff and Ginger.

If you do opt for paper invites, get them sustainably printed. We love Clare Gray Designs sustainably printed wedding stationery.

3. Biodegradable Confetti
Ditch the unnecessary paper, get biodegradable, natural wedding confetti. We love Adam Apple Confetti for their 100% eco-friendly approach to weddings. Planning a Winter wedding? Their trademarked snow-fetti will be perfect because let's face it, what are the chances it will snow in the UK?

4. Eco Friendly Wedding Flowers
Foam free? Check. British grown? Check. Seasonal? Check. If you want to make sure your flowers are eco-friendly as possible these are things you should be looking for.
Have you considered renting your flowers? Give them back at the end of your wedding day to 1. save money and 2. save the waste. Take a look at Silk Floral Art or The Blossom Company for the option of renting silk flowers.

5. Zero Waste Place Names
Ditch the paper (again) and use these pretty personalised leaf place names by Ivy Inks Paper Co or double up your place names as favours using personalised agate slices by Rock Paper Nib.
