Party favor tips for the (way-cool) green bride

In hopes of promoting a health conscious lifestyle and to bring awareness to my eco-friendly wedding clients regarding Green Living, I found this cool article on tips to becoming an “everyday environmentalist”. They even have tips to make your wedding green!!

Little known tidbit; “The Bridal Association of America estimates that the average couple spends over $400 on favors for their guests.” (quote taken from The Nature Conservancy website)

They couldn’t have the wedding without their dog! Such a happy guy.
