green your wedding!

I have to admit, even though I seem like a girl who doesn't dream of her wedding, I am. My dream wedding used to be extravagant and over-the-top and no doubt expensive. But as I 've grown older, more realistic and my priorities have changed, I now dream of a simple, green, eco-friendly, and of course, fun wedding. In building my dreams with real places, people and things, I've done a little research on how to make a wedding green.

Greatgreenwedding is probably the one of the most comprehensive green wedding sites. It has information on how to turn every facet of your wedding green. But other than greatgreenwedding, there are many sources to check out, like these...

Have any advice for making a great, green wedding? Let us know!

You may be interested to know about my blog:

http://www.HowToGetMarriedInGreen.blogspot.com

… where readers can post questions about how to make their weddings and other celebrations more eco-friendly, or they can email them to me, and I respond with the answers.

The blog is based on my latest book, “How To Get Married In Green: have an eco-friendly wedding without compromising on style,” which was published recently.

You can read more about the book here:

…although of course it’s available on all Amazons, not just the UK version, and is in most good book stores worldwide.

With all good wishes

My dress was actually white... and green. I did not like big puffy things, more simple, and I wanted color, maybe to be different, we did not see a lot of colored wedding dresses in France, at least 10 years ago.
