Green Summer Wedding Decor

Posted by kharrison on Jul 12, 2012

Summertime is the perfect season to embrace the natural beauty around you.  With everything in full bloom, your wedding can become the perfect  example of using natural resources!

Bamboo is one of earth’s most sustainable materials, as well as a beautiful option for eco-friendly wedding centerpieces and decor.  Use old jars or glasses and fill them with bamboo rods for a simple, clean look that your guests can then take home as favors.  To spice up the centerpieces you can reuse the flowers from the ceremony as table decorations and intertwine them with the bamboo, giving you a stylish and “green” look.

Candles are always a romantic and warm decor touch.  Luckily you can still maintain a “green” wedding and decorate with candles of any style!  Soy candles are made from 100% soybean wax and do not emit any toxins while burning.  In addition, they will burn slower and last longer than other candles!  These renewable resources come in a variety of shapes, colors, and scents to match the theme of your summer wedding.  A simple, white, soy tea light is the perfect addition to any summer decor!
