These days, green is everywhere — as in environmentally green. Look around and you can find green parks, green buildings, green clothing, green homes, and yes, even green weddings. Especially in Oregon. Oregon has the most beautiful and green parks in the United States. If you are new to Oregon and planning on having your most memorable wedding here, SSP is enthusiastic about making it happen.
Planning a wedding without incorporating Eco-friendly aspects can be complicated enough. Trying to figure out how to throw a wedding that is conscientious of the planet's resources can seem even more intimidating. But there's no reason why greening your wedding needs to be complicated. We've put together this guide to help you plan a stylish green wedding.
What is a Green Wedding? A green wedding is one that considers the environment and society. Integrating social responsibility. Minimizes waste. This is important to SSP.
The Venue. There are many venue choices for celebrating your wedding ceremony and reception. When it comes to a green wedding, choosing a venue that makes the most of the natural environment to set the tone and mood of your wedding is ideal. The less you need to rely on physical decorations, the better. Wedding decorations not only cost money, they add more waste to the environment.
If instead, you have your heart set on throwing your ceremony or reception at a hotel, select a locale that incorporates sustainable programs like saving water, saving energy, and reducing solid waste. One way of locating such a hotel is by checking with the Green Hotels Association within the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.
