The Best Eco Friendly Wedding Planners in America and the World

The Best Eco Friendly Wedding Planners in America and the World

by Bonnie Gringer

Every year, weddings seem to grow “bigger and more elaborate”. It seems almost to the point of excess with couples spending more money with every year. Today, the typical cost of a wedding is approximately $30,000. The wedding market loves this, but our planet does not. It is also hurting the future of young couples that already drowning in student loans. The new generation of couples are seeing more clearly about the excess and over-consumption that is hurting our future.

With the typical wedding producing 400 lbs of trash and 14.5 tons of CO2 yet the average person puts out 12 tons per year, making this the event-winner for environmental concerns.

The good news, there is a growing number of wedding event planners, shoppers and stylist who are actively trying to lower the wedding industry negative impact, and assist their customers in a more sustainable direction, while showing the world how gorgeous, more touching, and even more impactful a wedding could be for the couple, the guests, the community and the world!

Today we’re putting a spotlight on some of the very best eco-friendly wedding planners, wedding shoppers and wedding stylists across the U.S.
