“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”

Did you know that trees are the longest living organisms on earth?

One (a single) tree produces up to 260 pounds of oxygen a year. That is more than enough to supply oxygen to a family of four people. Make that a few thousand trees, and you’ve got an oxygen supply for a whole town

· Over the course of 50 years, a single tree can generate $31,250 of oxygen, provide $62,000 worth of air pollution control, recycle $37,500 worth of water, and control $31,500 worth of soil erosion.

Going Green with trees is an inspiring way to make your wedding day unforgettable and share with your friends and family just how easy, fun, & beautiful a sustainable lifestyle can be. This article, top 10 ways to include trees in your Wedding presents ideas for brides and grooms for the best fall wedding favors ever!
1 . Give guests the greenest favor of all: live tree saplings!
2. Tree seed in eco-box kits are versatile favors made with recycled card stock with your choice of 6 tree seeds that will grow in at least one US climatic zones.
3. Earth friendly tree seed packets wedding favors in recycled papers with complete growing instructions are amazing in a variety of colors & designs.
4. Tree seed embedded in biodegradable handmade paper tree cards are incredibly unique gifts, 100% plantable these are extremely “green”.

Top Tips for a Fall Wedding

Top Tips for a Fall Wedding

Fall is one of the best times for a wedding. The weather can be beautiful, more guests can usually attend and you have so many options for themes and colors. That planning process can be overwhelming as every bride will tell you. Here are just a few top tips for a fall wedding;

Take advantage of the outdoors. During this time of year there are so many beautiful days and evenings to choose from. Instead of spending time and money on decorations, let nature be your backdrop. You will still want flowers and maybe even a few bows, but instead of going all out with ribbons and materials, use some of the surrounding plant life as a way to bring the event together.

Whether you have an open bar inside or outside there is a good chance that you are going to end up with lots of bottles and cans. Instead of just tossing these in the trash, set up a few recycling bins for the bartender and for your guests. The Fall weather makes everyone more mindful of the environment and people may be more likely to make the right decision when it comes to their trash, especially if you make it easy!

Another top tip for a fall wedding is to skip over traditional centerpieces. So many times at the end of a wedding the bride realizes that she has several centerpieces and has no place to put them. Consider something simple like flowers in a vase, an arrangement of cones and botanicals or a small plant or tree. One guests at each table can take the centerpiece home and continue to enjoy it .

Replace the rice with bird seed. A bride and groom traditionally run through a receiving line of guests tossing rice in their direction. However, what happens to the rice when they are done? Consider something more environmentally friendly like bird seed. With almost the same texture and feel it won`t take away from the tradition, but it will be better for the birds that are keeping watch over your event.

For many Fall represents a time of harvest and plenty. Give your guests the gift of plenty with seeds instead of a more traditional favor. Guests leave weddings with all types of  favors and mementos that just end up in the trash. It isn`t that they didn`t enjoy your big day, they just have no place for another container, magnet, or cookie cutter with your name on it. With flower, herb , tree seeds  or tree seedlings your guests will be able to go home, plant something in their front or backyard and have a more lasting memory of the special day.

No matter how many people attend, you know that thank you cards are a must. You want your guests to know that you appreciate their attendance as well as their gifts. Make a real statement by choosing Hallmark greeting cards that go well with your Fall theme. Choose classic colors that represent the season. You can even look for cards made from recycled paper to give your wedding a green touch.

Plant a tree in the fall for the best results.

fall forest for weddings
he who plants a tree, plants a hope….

Did you know 2 mature trees provide enough oxygen for a family of 4?

Half of the world’s forests have disappeared.

Tree planting is the most cost effective way to reduce the CO2 in the atmosphere and cool down the earth’s temperature.
Planting 30 trees will remove a person’s carbon debt for that year.

What can you do?

Small changes in your life routine can add up to big differences in helping to help the earth. It is difficult to believe that one person and planting one little tree can make a difference. But it can, and planting trees is an easy, fun way to contribute to greening your town.

The presentation of a tree at a special event is a tremendous gift. A wonderful opportunity to inspire, promote and plant trees for a Greener Tomorrow. By giving Trees as Favors at their Weddings, brides and grooms will set an example and possibly inspire their guests.  Meaningful gifts create “growing memories” that last a lifetime.

In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.” - Aristotle

wedding centerpieces with gerber daisies

Growing Trend

Potted Plants as Wedding Centerpieces – a “Growing” Trend

 Bring Mother Nature in and inspire your guests with living potted flowers and herbs.  The remarkable thing about using plant centerpieces is that they are a growing symbol of your new life together, inspirational for your guests and project your eco-commitment from this day forward.

Gerber Daisies are our favorite potted plants because their brilliant colors pop on the reception tables. Forget-me-not’s, roses and lavender are attractive centerpieces. These flowers work well because they are a popular nursery plant which makes them easy to find. Rosemary and   basil are wonderful plotted herbs and are guest favorites, with an abundance of “green” points due to their culinary popularity and familiar scents.

Advantages of potted plant centerpieces in your wedding:

- They are surprisingly affordable from your local florist / nursery or can be planted far in advance

- Potted flower or herbs as centerpieces are unique table name/number holders

- There is no risk of the flower getting fatigued with weather and sitting for long periods of time.   They can be arranged days in advance, avoiding the last minute rush.

- Plants can be placed in decorative containers and finished with complementary ribbon to complement your colors or theme.

- They are available in a massive selection of colors, sizes, shapes that can tie in with the overall style or theme.

     Flowers and herbs embrace the something “green” trend in 2009 as we become more aware of the natural world around us. Complement with eco-friendly seed favor guest gifts for a wedding they will remember forever.

Tips for seasonal outdoor weddings

TIPS FOR SEASONAL WEDDINGS




Wedding Planner’s Advice

by Shelley Waugh
The outdoor wedding is more popular than ever, they’re very different from the traditional indoor affair and offer more options, with only the weather as a variable.

Ten tips for an outdoor wedding either at a venue or in your back yard.

1. BUDGET: Have an exact budget or specific dollar amount when you meet with your wedding planner. Make a prioritized list of what is necessary to create your wedding the way you envision it. This will help in deciding between calligraphy invitations and live music. It can be disappointing to make big plans and then have to cancel them because they’re not affordable.

2. DATE: Planning the date is extremely important. Have several in mind, since popular wedding months such as May, June, September and October may limit the choice of dates. Depending on where you live, winter weddings for better value. They can be spectacular at this time of year.

3. COMFORT: Remember to ensure your guests’ comfort by considering weather conditions on the big day. If hot, have ushers offer ice-cold water bottles as guests are seated, or print your wedding program on a hand-held fan to keep your guests cool.  Colorful paper umbrellas shade the sun and add beautiful color as well.

4. BACKUP PLAN: What if it rains? The ideal outdoor wedding location should have an indoor plan just in case. However, an outdoor tent is another option, but only for light to moderate rainstorms. Or, the couple might have the ceremony outside and reception inside as a way to minimize the risk of bad weather.

5. PLAN FOR WIND: Windy conditions can wreak havoc on attire, hair, and décor. If the location is typically windy, avoid fabrics such as chiffons or silks. Also, advise your hairstylist that your wedding is outdoors so she/he can design an appropriate style for you and the bridal party. While unity ceremonies are important, wind can have an ill effect on the traditional unity candle. More recent ideas include the sand ceremony and water ceremony.

6. DECOR: With natural beauty all around, outdoor weddings often use fewer decorations. Some to be considered, however, include an arch or trellis, strings of lights or lanterns in the trees, torches, and luminarias or farolitas. A flower petal walkway dense with deep colored rose petals creates a dramatic contrast to green grass. Note: for weddings on grassy areas, ensure the sprinkler system is disabled so guests don’t receive an unwanted shower!

7. FOOD: A reception with food stations with delicious and beautiful options that are prepared and refreshed on a continual basis. Guests can enjoy the reception without worrying if the food is getting cold or that they’ll miss a served food course.

8. BUGS: One way to limit bug disturbances is to use citronella candles placed around the border of the event disguised with red rocks or other natural elements just in case.

9. SUNLIGHT: Couples who consider timing their outdoor wedding to a beautiful sunset should ensure that chairs are oriented away from the sun so it won’t shine directly in the eyes of their guests during the ceremony.

10. ATTIRE: If hot weather is in the forecast, wear light fabrics to avoid unnecessary overheating or perspiration. Brides wearing trains should consider the ground they will be walking on to avoid grass and dirt. An aisle runner can be helpful in avoiding stains. Consult a makeup professional for makeup that won’t cake, streak, or shine and will hold up well for photographs and throughout the event.
