Guest Post from Wendie Aston: Eco-Friendly Plated Dinner

In an effort to be eco-friendly and produce less waste, a plated dinner is the best option. The amount of food wasted from a buffet is enormous; most guests tend to indulge in the cocktail hour foods and may not have an appetite for a large buffet dinner.  A plated dinner ensures each guest has an adequate amount of food that is displayed beautifully.

3 R’s for Your Wedding

by admin on December 8, 2011 in Budget, Logistics, Purpose with No Comments

Reduce, reuse, and recycle.

I was first inculcated with the alliterative mantra of the 3R’s in my fourth grade science class. We read The Magic School Bus and then created our own imaginary journeys into the plumbing systems, landfills, water cycles, and energy systems. For some reason, however, the 3R’s were not in my vocabulary during my wedding planning. I just planned based on what I wanted and how much it cost. Looking back on it, and seeing other brides who have had low-key, outdoor, home-cooked weddings that were fabulous made me think I would have had just as great of a time if I had also factored in my social and environmental conscience.
