Say “I Do” to Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Wedding Decorations

Planning your dream wedding doesn’t have to cost the earth! Here at Thornton Events, we believe in creating beautiful celebrations that are kind to the environment. From eco-conscious couples to those with a green thumb, here are some fantastic ways to incorporate sustainability into your wedding décor:

  • Embrace the Outdoors: Nature is the ultimate sustainable decorator. Consider an outdoor ceremony or reception amidst a beautiful garden or park. Utilise natural elements like trees, flowers, and greenery in your décor. 
  • Locally Sourced & Upcycled: Support local businesses and reduce your carbon footprint by opting for locally sourced flowers, decorations, and even food. Consider upcycling vintage items or using recycled materials like glass bottles or wooden crates for centerpieces. 
  • Rent, Don’t Buy: There’s no need to purchase a mountain of decorations that will be used once. Opt for rental companies for items like tables, chairs, linens, and even backdrops. 
  • Sustainable Favours: Skip the plastic trinkets and choose favours that are both thoughtful and eco-friendly. Think about planting seeds, donating to a charity in your guests’ names, or offering locally-made jams or honey. 
  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Be mindful of waste throughout your planning. Opt for digital invitations, encourage guests to RSVP online, and choose recyclable materials for signage and decorations. 

By making a few conscious choices, you can create a beautiful celebration that reflects your love story and commitment to a greener future. Let Thornton Events help you plan a wedding that’s both stylish and sustainable!
