ORGANIC WEDDINGS

First I must clarify. There is organic and there is certified organic. Ifyou question the origin and purity of a product, insist on certifiedorganic ingredients. Also, realize that natural does not mean organicaccording to the world of legalities. I just like to prevent any typicalconfusion, as identifying terms can get complex. Now on to the funstuff.

A new type of wedding registry is emerging -- businesses aregetting ready for organic consumers. Brides want natural homeaccessories, recycled glassware, organic cotton towels, certifiedwool bedding and hemp upholstered furniture. Retailers say It’s notjust the environmentally concerned brides and grooms who prefergreen giving, that family and friends prefer ethical shopping habitstoo.

The good news is that if you need help with arrangements, youdon’t have to rob a bank. Just be certain your natural weddingdetails are taken seriously. Traditional wedding consultants maytake a while to prepare themselves for these organic requests. Youmay have to gently remind them that excess is not fashionable thesedays.

For starters, the most stylish invitations and announcements aremade from tree-free papers. Selections vary from subtle glitter inrecycled paper to handmade all-natural botanicals. For a rich,conservative feel, look at classic kenaf or hemp paper. There is aneco card for every fashion taste out there. And nowadays nearlyevery printer offers preferred soy-based ink.

Locate organically grown flowers for your chosen floral designer.Purchase in or close to your community. You’ll be admired for supporting flower farmers and buying locally. Leave wildflowers alone so they can reseed.

Want organic catering? No problem. Apparently organic weddingcakes are increasing as much as organic food. We’ve come a longway in just a few years. Today an organic carrot cake adorned withorganic cream cheese and organic fresh flowers is a feasible optionmost anywhere, U.S.A. Or perhaps organic chocolate something?

Aromatherapy for bridal showers, the ceremony and reception areideal. Food can entail chocolate truffles made with neroli and roseoils. Use natural incense and soy-based candles with pure essentialoils to fill the air. Pure rose water or aromatherapy room freshenersmake perfect gifts. Smells lovely, doesn’t it?

You can buy or sew a hippie look if you wish, but that’s not yournatural restriction anymore. Clothing made of hemp, flax, organiccotton, natural wool and silk in numerous styles and every pricerange is accessible. You want to work closely with the tailor eitherthrough a store, consultant, or directly.

Both famous and little-known designers are becoming hemp maestros and displaying their talents in weddings. Allow at least twoor three months for custom attire. Typically muslin patterns aremade from sketches. This process takes time, but can satisfy bothlocal and distant customers.

Now to unwind in that lovely attire, may your entertainment beunplugged. Save energy and have far less to worry about. Thereare numerous instruments (and voices) to provide the rhythm youwant without electricity.

After the ceremony, organic lavender makes a great toss instead ofrice. Handmade chiffon bags can be filled with dried lavenderflowers and tied with hemp yarn for guests to throw or keep asmementoes. Simple appreciation gifts for wedding participants become special when organic.

Eco-savy people take pride in their environmental concerns. Todaythey can express themselves without embarrassment or intimidation,and with more social support than ever before. It’s so very natural toshow respect for earth with an organic wedding.
