FALL in Love With These Eco-Friendly Wedding Ideas!

Here at, we are always trying to find ways to reduce the carbon footprint of our brides. From your invitations to the food you serve, there are several ways to have a trendy and environmentally-conscious wedding celebration. We have compiled some fashion-forward, Eco-friendly ideas for your autumn wedding – Enjoy!

Eco-Friendly Invitations 

In the digital age, we find that more and more brides are turning to evites rather than a traditional paper invitation. There are many outlets to let your friends and family know about your special day, like Facebook. There are also several websites where you can design an evite (online invitation) and have them sent via email. If you would rather stick to traditional invitations, consider using 100% recycled paper or get creative and don’t use paper at all! There are invitations made from other materials and textiles, and there are even edible invitations made of chocolate or cookies! For an autumn wedding, invitations on wood from sustainable forests are a creative and memorable option!

Eco-Friendly Flowers 

Flowers and petals can cost thousands of dollars for a wedding, and may be one of the most wasteful aspects of a wedding (considering they will die). Real-touch and silk flowers are a great alternative to help you save money and can be saved for years to come. If you’re dead-set on having real flowers for your bouquets, consider purchasing silk flower petals for decorating the aisle and tables at your reception.

Eco-Friendly Food

Rather than serving a buffet, a sit down dinner tends to be less wasteful. For a fall wedding reception, try to use locally grown foods that are in season. Fresh produce and freshly picked berries are a great way to satisfy the palette while keeping food cost low. Try a beet and goat cheese tossed salad, or a sweet potato soup as a starter. Glazed squash or green beans are great options for a vegetable alongside pork chops with an applesauce topping. For a more casual wedding, you can even serve chicken pot pie or roasted corn on the cob! A candied apple bar is a great alternative to a traditional ice cream or candy bar. Set out a variety of locally grown apples with caramels and chocolates to dip – a crowd pleaser for sure!

Eco-Friendly Favors

Another great idea for an environmentally friendly favor is to give your guests seeds to plant. Aside from being eco-friendly, seeds also symbolize the birth and growth of the relationship between the bride and groom.  Black eyed Susan, daisy, and chrysanthemum seeds are perfect choices for an autumn wedding. You can include a small potting plant or a sweet love poem to go along with the seeds. Simple, economical, environmentally conscious, and a great way to share and symbolize your love!

What Are Real Touch Flowers?

Real Touch Flowers are great for weddings!. They are flowers that look real and are eco-friendly for our environment.

Over a thousand different species of artificial flowers are imported and available in the USA today.
Real Touch is not a brand name, nor a product license. As a consumer, you should be aware that any company can use the name Real Touch.

About Real Touch Flowers

  1. The flower is botanically accurate and manufactured to the highest-quality standards, giving it an ultra-realistic look.
  2. The petals & leaves have true-touch texture and vibrant, true-to-life colors. This is created several different ways:
    1. The silk flower is coated with a mixture of liquid polymers, using a patented process from Asia. This is applied in layers, so the flowers remain supple & flexible. Most Real Touch flowers are made this way.
    2. The silk flower is molded from foam, in a patented process. These are sold under the brand name Floramatique. However, the foam has limitations in replicating delicate petals and intricate flowers. While dozens of floral species are sold under the Floramatique brand, we have only selected Amaryllis, Calla Lilies, Casablancas and Fuji Mums as Real Touch flowers.
    3. Orchids are a special case, because the flower petals are thicker and need more structure. Real Touch orchid flowers may be made of latex or more rigid polymers.

  • Amaryllis
  • Banana Flower
  • Bells of Ireland
