Your wedding can still be mind blowing and fun while you keep in eco-conscious. Here are a few tips to help you do just that.
Plastic-Free Wedding Favors

When choosing your plastic-free favors, don’t forget to avoid the plastic, cellophane that is mostly used for packaging. A good rule to follow is that if it can’t be recycled, don’t use it.
Non-Plastic Fan and Accessories

Balloons Are A No-No
We know that they look very pretty, but they are also bad for the environment. Most times, they end up choking the oceans and being a danger to birds and fishes. Couples who want ecofriendly weddings in Spain opt to use flowers in place of balloons for their Spain weddings.
Signs and Decorations
Change your acrylic and plastic decorations for timber, bamboo or glass. They may cost a little bit more, but plastic takes about 1000 years to decompose depending on the type and even at that, doesn’t disappear completely. They are just reduced into smaller particles that stay on our planet forever. Couples who are thinking of having ecofriendly Spain weddings should be ready to spend a little more to keep the environment safe.
Edible Cake Toppers
Having a completely edible cake topper instead of the usual plastic ones is better. Where you can’t get them or don’t want to have one, you can use beautifully designed timber or bamboo in place of the acrylic and plastic ones. That way, you can reduce the amount of plastic being produced that will end up in a landfill for centuries or somewhere in the ocean.
