If you're having a fun dinner party consider giving these as favors, sending each guest (or couple) home with a cork. A few days later send a photo from the party along with a note expressing how much fun you had with them. What a terrific way to capture memories!

Now more than ever before brides are thinking about making their weddings eco-friendly. Here are just a few ways we've worked with brides to create some unexpected "green" touches that are beautiful and good for the environment!
- Print your invitation on plantable paper. Botanical Paperworks is one source for paper for the DIY bride.
- Instead of paper menus, use petite chalkboards. There are many options to choose from at craft and teacher supply stores.
- Make a statement with a green centerpiece. Try using beautiful orchids placed in a silver punch bowl or ivy topiary. They make wonderful favors for guests and last much longer than flowers.
- Talk with your caterer about using foods that have been grown locally. To make the meal extra special, select recipes that are close to your heart and meaningful to you.
- Ask the venue space about their recycling program. There are many items from a wedding that can be repurposed.
So much of having a green wedding comes down to making smart decisions. And don't be fooled, going green doesn't mean you have to sacrifice beauty. So step out, take a stand for the environment and create a savvy wedding that will make both your mother AND Mother Nature proud!
