The Austin wedding market is full of glamorous affairs full of love and happiness amongst couples from all over the country! But making these beautiful celebrations doesn’t always have to come with the cost of hindering our environment. Planning a sustainable wedding in Austin is easier than you think with these seven tips that will make your heart happy!

Rent Over DIY

Renting items such as your signage (i.e. table numbers, welcome signage, bar signs) is an easy way to make your wedding sustainable! This also eliminates stress on yourself leading up to your wedding day and is one less thing you must bring in the day of. Talk about a win-win-win! 

Selecting Bridesmaids Dress that can be Worn Again

We all have seen the movie “27 Dresses”, and no one wants to be that bridesmaid with 27 different dresses that they wear once and shove to the back of their closet and it never gets worn again! Try having your bridesmaids choose a dress they love and will wear again rather than a one-and-done dress! 

Sustainable Wedding Food: Farm-to-Table Catering

Today more than ever, people are prioritizing the quality of the food they put into their bodies. This can easily translate to your wedding day by hiring a catering team focusing on farm-to-table meals and eliminating unnecessary items that will create a more sustainable event! Root Cellar Catering Co. in Austin is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a farm-to-table catering team.

House Plants as Decor

The decor is always essential to making your wedding day unique to you! Since this celebration is all about you, why buy something you don’t already have? For example, take those houseplants you have taken great care of and use them to decorate your bar or welcome table! 

Eco-Friendly Wedding Favors

Couples are always asking what are fun favors guests will use. One of our favorites is gifting seeds for flowers or a plant. This is also an excellent eco-friendly and sustainable favor for you and your guests!

Signage Made from Recycled Materials

Are you set on making your own signage? Try using recycled paper or materials to create something beautiful while being a sustainable wedding decor item! 

Work with Catering Companies that Donate Leftover Food

Who is taking all your leftover food at the end of your wedding day? Is this something your catering company will handle, or does it get thrown away? Ask your catering team if they will donate any leftover food so nothing goes to waste! One of our favs that donates after events in Austin is Crave Catering.

Your Austin wedding can be everything and more than you ever imagined while still including aspects of sustainability. Remember having a sustainable wedding and celebration can still be big and beautiful!
