Wearing a statement headpiece on your big day will outweigh any of the benefits you may get from wearing one. They’re often bulky, heavy and you will find you have to constantly adjust them while you’re trying to enjoy your wedding.
If you desperately want to wear one for the photos, make sure you can take it off without ruining your hair in case you get tired of it.
Designer Wedding Dresses
There’s one line that we can draw pretty clearly: however important you think your big day is, it’s not worth getting into debt over.
With that being said, it's very difficult to find a dress you like that also fits in your budget, but remember you'll probably only wear this dress once, so don't spend too much on it.
Do you really need a wedding arch for the ceremony? The truth is that wedding decor is often excessive—and a lot of it ends up in the trash.
Instead, look to more sustainable decor pieces that you can repurpose after your wedding.
Neither you nor we can ignore the fact that weddings tend to be wildly carbon-intensive productions. The multiple bouquets of flowers and little decorations that are meant to adorn your surroundings will only find solace in bins at the end of the day.
While a certain amount of waste and impact is expected on any wedding day, blatantly wasteful weddings are seen as unfashionable affairs.
Gone are the days when a wedding meal meant a three-course roast dinner, and that was that. These days, ‘festival weddings’ are big business, and couples are opting for mobile caterers, food trucks, and street-food vendors to feed their hungry guests.
However, with the festival set-up often comes lots of single-use, disposable packaging, plastic cutlery, and drinking cups. Not very environmentally friendly.
