Great Ideas for Your Green Wedding

Weddings are a wonderful time to express what you value as a couple. That includes being considerate of your environmental impact and renewing your dedication to live in harmony with the natural world.

As an engaged couple, your purchasing power can make a big impact for the environment. A few ways to be eco-friendly:

  • Give Back at Your Wedding. Your wedding can help protect the environment by raising money for the causes you care about.
    • Start a Charity Registry. Give your guests the option to donate to your favorite environmental charity.
    • Start a Gift Registry. Let our store partners give back to your charity of choice when you register for gifts through I Do.
  • Offset Your Footprint. Use one of our partners to calculate your wedding's carbon footprint, then offset your emissions through their easy-to-use online tools.
  • Do the World a Favor. Honor your guests and share your values with them through wedding favors that support an environmental charity.
  • Plan a Green Honeymoon. If you plan ahead, you can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and give back through your purchases.
