About Green-Eyed Girl Productions
Thank you for visiting us on Wedding Wire!
Green-Eyed Girl Productions is a multi-faceted organization that offers a variety of services. We plan all sorts of events from Birthday parties to, of course, Weddings. We strive to provide you with an event that reflects your personal style and own creative designs without all of the time, stress, shopping and personal legwork. Our goal is to help you in any way that we can, and plan the event of your dreams the easiest way possible, all the while alleviating stress.
If there is one important aspect to highlight about our company it is the emphasis on efficiency and sustainability. Planning an event, anything from a gender reveal baby announcement party to a wedding, requires time, money and energy which can be consolidated if you know where to look, shop and network. Our company goals revolve around production of a beautiful looking event, but more so a good feeling event. So that you know when you look back, you spent every minute, phone call and penny the easiest way possible on everyone involved. We want your expense to be a relaxing part of your experience, not the bottom line, so we have implemented many systems into our approach to accomplish that goal. Please, look around our site and review the numerous opportunities we offer to save our clients money, as well as resources, all while paying attention to GREEN methods.
Your Event & GREEN
Company Motto: “The NUMBER 1 money saving strategy is to have a “REUSABLE” event and shop at home or REUSE” – Green-Eyed Girl
Our goal as a company is to create an event for you that is everything you have ever dreamed, but also with the least impact on your home, area, venue and even your wallet. Fortunately, many things that we promote often SAVE you a lot of money along the way as well as reducing some of the waste that a wedding can produce.
Recycle: It is not a requirement if you work with us, but we encourage our clients to have a Recycling Station if they have cans, bottles, paper plates, etc. We also advise clients to consider using recycled materials on their Big Day. Our website offers a great variety of links & vendors who offer recycled paper products and favors!
Reduce: Eliminating waste is always the best way to go. We encourage a lower percentage of purchasing with regard to favors and decorations that are either left over or thrown away after the event. If you have anything left over from your event, please don’t throw it away! I’ve been collecting random assortments of favor boxes, etc to reuse at smaller events, just to reduce waste! We also encourage renting linen napkins and glassware, as cocktail napkins and plastic cups produce such a large pile of refuse.
Reuse: We love ECLECTIC events! There are so many great things to use in your event that are just lying around your house or garage! Baskets, vases, rocks, tree branches, and more! Instead of running to the store, consider a walk through of your own home; or better yet, everyone else’s too. Find common theme items from your parents’ homes, or use items from a friend’s wedding. They will love seeing them on the Big Day and feel like they really helped you, because they did. If you must purchase new things for your event, try to make them reusable later: centerpieces you can take home (or send home with family) that can be planted in the back yard. Give favors that are planted or edible.
Here are a just few systems we implement into our Event Planning Style:
- Recycling Stations for catered items: Food & Drink
- We provide resources for biodegradable utensil options
- Contacts for Recycle Bins Rentals in our area
- Promote Reusable items: Actual plates, drink ware, utensils and cloth napkins to reduce waste
- Multi-purposing cocktail hour and dessert foods
- Reduction of Waste and Reusing Wedding Byproducts: All things left over
- Identifying purchases that are investments in the overall event vision
- Plan for at least two functions per purchase
- Make purchases that can be reused or re-gifted after the event
- Working with caterers who donate remaining food to shelters instead of disposing
