Guaranteed you (and your hostesses) will speak to your guests a lot on your wedding day, but signage can provide you with a little help! Signs are a really fun and creative way to communicate with your guests, giving them guidance on everything from where to sit during the ceremony, where to find the photo booth, and what’s yummy on the menu for dinner. Signs are also great décor, so they serve two purposes.
To keep your signage eco-friendly, find handmade ones in online marketplaces such as Etsy or create your own using recycled wood, fabrics, or other materials. We love the idea of using the chalkboard too—you’ll use less paper and have something useful at home after the wedding!
We have a lovely styled shoot to share today from Huffman Weddings!
The eco-inspired shoot came together in Colorado and it’s just beautiful. The photographer and event designer worked with all local vendors (like Bella Moon Cakery–yum!), and the pottery and wood tables are handcrafted.
The woods created the perfect backdrop for this lush palette of greens and purples, which really pops against the natural elements. We love the succulents in the centerpieces—so gorgeous!
When a sustainability consultant bride and a groom studying forestry engineering decide to get married, an Eco-Beautiful Wedding is bound to follow!
Kaitlyn and Tom’s wedding day was the first powered by Bullfrog, a Canadian green energy supplier. The couple opted to incorporate lots of eco details into their day, including a hemp and eco-silk dress for the bride, wedding bands made from recycled gold (from their families’) and a registry of locally-produced gifts. Love it!
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding Wishes to Kaitlyn and Tom!

Mara and Michael held their wedding and reception at The Foundry at Puritan Mill in Atlanta. Built in 1921, this historic space was a perfect complement to this couple’s traditional Jewish celebration.
Mara and Michael undoubtedly honored tradition, yet created a day with a modern and eco feel. Love their centerpieces made from natural and recycled materials, including wrapped bark and wine barrel lids!
Many Eco Beautiful Wedding wishes to Mara and Michael!

When both the bride and the groom work on organic farms, you know as a guest, you are in for some eco-goodness! We can tell you (well, actually show you) that Cameron + Walker didn’t disappoint. With locally sourced food, lots of family-made pies and flowers picked right from the bride’s farm, this wedding was uber-sweet.
Set in the historic mountains of North Carolina, Cameron + Walker’s wedding day was a beautiful celebration, ending with an old-fashioned square dance with most of their neighbors and friends swinging around and around under the stars…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Cameron + Walker!
