The Unconventional Bride is a series that we will be incorporating in our blog that will focus on the funky and slightly off beat bride.
Eco-friendly weddings. "In 2011 we’ll continue to see more green, environmentally friendly weddings. Think second-hand and vintage wedding dresses, LED lighting, recycled paper invitations and programs, and food from local farms and providers. Charity donations will continue to be a popular option instead of traditional wedding favors, and more couples will be asking for donations to their favorite charity instead of wedding gifts.”*

Even Prince William and Kate are thinking green for their wedding by having their guests donate to a charity as opposed to giving a gift. Very cool William & Kate!
