You’ve probably already guessed from the title of this post that we’re tackling eco-friendly wedding tips. Well, if you did, you guessed right! Ashelynn Manor works with all sorts of brides, and while some prefer a traditional event, others are looking for ways to implement environmentally-friendly details into their nuptials. Whichever you prefer, we’re here to help! There are a lot of ideas floating around out there, so we nailed down a few just for you…
Chalkboards: They are the new age of wedding paper materials. No longer must you print a million programs, plus menus, wedding signs and more. Any kind of chalkboard friendly surface can take the place of paper—plus you can do it yourself or hire a professional artist to create masterpieces of your bidding! Rustic signs, chic surfaces, it’s all your canvas. Plus, they look terrific propped up around our scenic grounds.
Local Focus: Farm-to-table menus are still as big as ever, but the movement to keep things local is just as hot. Call on your neighborhood vendors for everything from your wedding day china to locally grown produce to help minimize your carbon footprint and support your own local economy.
Green Registries: Yes, these actually exist. If you’ve never seen one before, take note! So many stores, both chains and local businesses, have begun to stock enviro-friendly products like home wares and accessories. All it takes is a little homework—or simply turning to your favorite eco-savvy resource—to create a registry that both fulfills your desire to sustain the Earth and fill your home with the things you need.
In today’s post, Ashelynn Manor concludes our little two-part series about fun themed menus you can incorporate into your wedding.
Mini Me, Please!
Bite-sized foods have had their heydays but always keep coming back for more. Don’t underestimate the impact that the mini treats can have on your guests. They are fun and memorable and easy to eat! The tiny foods are perfect for children’s parties, passed appetizers or a late-night energizer for wedding receptions. Think bite-sized hot dogs, tacos, burritos, donuts, grilled cheese and more.
Middle East Feast
Common Middle Eastern cuisine from couscous and hummus to falafels and baklava are becoming more and more popular for special event menus, including weddings. Whether the fare represents your heritage or simply your taste buds, consider serving a portion of these items for added flair at your upcoming function.
