Sustainable Wedding Ideas
Updated: Apr 28
With a rise in concern for the environment, sustainable weddings are becoming increasingly more popular. Planning a sustainable wedding can be stressful, but there are plenty of options for eco-friendly lighting, decor, and venues. In this blog post, we go over some of our favorite products and ways to make your special day more sustainable without sacrificing aesthetics.
Sustainable Lighting Options
We offer many eco-friendly lighting options to give your wedding a magical ambiance. Our Branch Fairies, Twinkle Lights, and Café Lights all come in LED versions that use less energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Other fun options for LED Lighting are Gobo Projections and Up Lights. Our Gobo Projections display colorful patterns that can be customized to fit the theme of your special day. Our LED Up Lights come in both a wireless and baby LED version with over 4.2 billion different color options. These unique lighting options are sure to make an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.
Venues with Outdoor Spaces
Charleston is full of beautiful outdoor wedding venues that provide a romantic backdrop for your special day! Some of our favorites include Legare Waring House, Lowndes Grove, and the William Aiken House. Many of these venues take it further by having the ceremony and reception within walking distance from each other, removing the need for transportation between the two!
Backyard garden weddings at home are another eco-friendly option that has been popular this summer as couples take advantage of the fresh air and wide-open spaces.
One of the easiest ways to host a sustainable wedding is to dress your ceremony and reception with reusable decor! We love this year's focus on incorporating greenery and florals into the decoration. A thoughtful and sustainable idea is to have your guests take home extra florals and plants as a gift from the wedding.
Utilizing built-in decor and natural surroundings is a great way to create the perfect ambiance at your event while remaining eco-friendly. Legare Waring House's patio features a romantic fountain, and the grounds are surrounded by natural elements such as old oak trees and lagoons. The William Aiken House has a built-in Pergola that is the perfect location for wedding ceremonies, and can be dressed up with lighting and greenery.
If your venue doesn't come with built-in decor, we offer endless amounts of decor rentals. Some of our favorites include our Hanging Glass Orbs, 60 Inch Round Hanging Structure, and the Candle Wall. Our Hanging Glass Orbs and Candle Wall are the perfect way to light your venue by candle light for a romantic ambiance. The 60 Inch Round Hanging Structure offers a great way to incorporate greenery and florals into your decor!
From lighting, decorations, and venue, there are many small changes that can be made to remain eco-friendly at your wedding. We hope some of these ideas inspire you to host the sustainable wedding of your dreams. Contact us today to hear more about our eco-friendly lighting and decor rentals!
