Consider an Eco Friendly and Green Wedding


May 21, 2019

Consider:

  • Asking guests to donate to an eco-friendly cause of your choice.
  • Asking guests to contribute to your eco-tour honeymoon. 
  • Encouraging attendees to carpool.
  • Show your wedding on Facebook live or stream it so friends do not have to do a cross-country flight. 
  • Using a second hand dress.
  • Consider renting your decor, bridal bouquet, and boutonnière. 
  • Collaborating with local farms versus having out-of-season foliage flown in from elsewhere else.
  • Use paper plates, Biotrem (wheat bran plates) and bamboo forks.
  • Having a plan for excess food. 
  • Consider vegetarian and vegan options.
  • Resell your supplies and decor after the wedding, don't throw it away. 

Start your new future as clean as possible!

Benefits of having a Micro Style Wedding


May 6, 2019

It won’t cost a fortune…unless you want it to, you can choose additional services from our add on list.


A micro wedding is a great way to celebrate your nuptials without heading to the courthouse or eloping. With a smaller guest list, your wedding will be less expensive—giving you extra money to spend on the dream honeymoon you would want to take. 


However if you still want to splurge, we can make that happen! Buy that perfect wedding dress, we provide silk flower, you can do real flowers, add classy decorations for elegancy. Or maybe you’d prefer us to arrange for you and your guests to have a top-dollar 5-course meal to be the focus of your reception. The choice is yours!

It can be whatever you want it to be.


In keeping with that, when planning a micro wedding, you can really think outside the box. We will offer wedding dates that are themed oriented, and consider planning your wedding around those dates.  


Some ideas for themed weddings may include; Vintage, Bohemian, Beach, Art Deco, Vintage Neon (include Carl's Ice Cream and Goolrick), Irish, Tea Garden, Great Gatsby, Roaring 20's, Harry Potter Style, Pop Art, Secret Garden, Goth, Star Wars, and anything else you can dream up. Get your guests to get involved. 


We’ve all been to weddings with hundreds of guests. A much smaller affair allows for more intimacy between you and your guests. So if you and your partner aren’t passionate about having a huge wedding, or if the thought of exchanging your vows in front of a packed house makes you nervous, a micro wedding is a great solution!
