With a little thoughtful planning and a helpful, environmentally-conscious caterer, you can have a lovely wedding without negatively impacting the earth.
“Sustainable weddings are gaining traction right now,” says Jacquie Bols, owner/operator of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering. She adds “This absolutely delights me, since Jacquie's Gourmet Catering is all about that.”
Now more than ever, those getting married are considering the ecological impact of their nuptials long before they walk down the aisle. There are a lot of options. Sustainable weddings and wedding receptions may range in scope from up-cycled reception centerpieces to carefully planned and executed zero-waste affairs.
It all begins with the vendors the couple selects. Jacquie suggests having open and honest conversations with everyone from caterers to event destinations, florists, to rental companies – explaining your expectations.
Because you are going green doesn’t mean a sparse or tasteless affair. The reality of an eco-friendly wedding is much more chic than it sounds.
Here are some ways to begin planning:
At Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, we are all about local resourcing, sustainable practices, and the use of organic, pesticide-free Indiana-grown foods.
