As we get ready to close the door at Eco-Beautiful office for the last time this year, we can’t help but smile thinking about the blast 2013 has been! We’ve featured so many gorgeous weddings in our issues and blog this year, launched our first issue of Eco-Beautiful Baby and shared green wedding tips and info galore.
The first few weeks of the new year will find us busy preparing our next issue, which we hope to share with you soon! Until then, stay tuned to the blog as we’ll continue to do what we do best–bring you the information and inspiration you need to plan stylishly green weddings.
Happy New Year!

These ring bearer pillow alternatives by the paperynook are just adorable! With materials such as twigs, moss, lace and even hay, designer Sarah Sewell creates beautifully unique ring pillows and other vessels to get your rings down the aisle in eco style.
And great news…the papernook shop is on sale until January 1, 2014!
As we promised in yesterday’s post, this week’s Real Wedding is all about fun and creativity! A figment of an eco-friendly imagination, Anton and Ksenia’s wedding in St. Petersburg, Russia was designed by Stas Ostrikov of Fun Fusion Design. Take a look at how all of the handcrafting, hand stamping and other creative elements all came together…
There’s the ring “nest’!
Peppermint is one of the holiday’s signature scents, and red and white stripes can be found everywhere.
We love these festive items from fineanddandparty and Lippincott Soap Company. Prep lips for mistletoe with some organic lip balm, add some red and white to those boxes of baked goodies with a little twine or dress up gifts with pretty paper straws.
Any of these would make great hostess gifts!
Depending on where you are in the world, there may be a bit of snow on the ground. Many couples, like Melissa and Brian, would agree that snow makes for a perfect, winter Eco-Beautiful Wedding. Their wedding, which we featured earlier this year, was held at the Deer Valley Resort in Utah.
Snow, close family and friends, a cozy fireplace and fresh, locally-prepared foods made their day one to remember!
