If you weren’t already aware, I can be somewhat of a huge eco-friendly nerd. Not sure where it started, but I do know it has rubbed off on my Mom, and am hoping to share a bit of it with the wedding industry. Incorporating eco-friendly and green concepts into a wedding may seem hard. And, to some, it may seem like a fad, but I think it’s easy to incorporate just a few small elements. And, small they may be, but they can make a difference.
And, the first and one of the easiest? Reuse old vases, do not go out and buy new ones. In fact, may venues actually have a surplus of vases from previous brides (so ask!). Other ways to find vases? Visit garage sales, eBay and even Craigslist (I’ve mentioned this before). Chances are you’ll save a few bucks, too!

By finding vases from all over and collecting them, not only are you doing the Earth a favor, but you’ll give your event some depth and character in your design.
