Whether used to create a decorative entrance, to dress the wedding breakfast tables, or add something extra to a photoshoot, balloons are a big wedding trend.
But balloons are essentially a single-use item; meaning when your party is over, they’re just rubber going to landfill.
The nice thing about getting married nowadays is that you have a lot more freedom to make your wedding as nontraditional as you want.
While many people still like to stick to wedding trends and traditions, you certainly don't have to, especially when it comes to costly items like flower walls that are simply set up for display and serve no other purpose.
Blowing up your engagement photos to poster size and having them mounted all over might look a bit tacky, if not completely overdone.
We get it, you love each other, which is why we're at your wedding, there's no need to remind us every five minutes with photos scattered all over the place.
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.
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.
