Every year in the United States, over 2.4 million people get married, fueling a wedding industry estimated at -seventy billion dollars per year. Until now, there had been no readily available help for those wanting their wedding celebrations to reflect their environmental and social awareness by balancing ecology, style and tradition.

"Organic Weddings" fills this gap by providing alternatives to the excessive and synthetic wedding industry machine while still enabling couples to incorporate time-honored traditions, as well as meaningful details, that celebrate the bride and groom's own style and values. The book presents new ideas and product information, interviews with eco-leaders, real wedding stories, and tips from eco-brides that can be readily shared with relatives and other wedding decision-makers. Topics covered include:


planning and budgeting
wedding attire from natural fibers
holistic beauty and natural products
tree-free invitations and stationery
earth-friendly locations and decor
ceremonies and vows
organic food and beverages
favors, flowers, and eco-gifts
honeymoons, green hotels, and eco-travel
newlyweds, sustainable living, values investing, and natural homes.

Packed with beautiful black-and-white and color photographs, this refreshing book will inspire those planning all varieties of wedding, from backyard to black tie. It will especially appeal to those wanting their valuable wedding purchases to reflect environmentally and socially responsible choices, while also showcasing the fun and style of conscientious celebrations.
