To celebrate Earth Daytoday I thought it would be a great idea to share different ideas for an eco-friendly wedding. Even if you're not searching for how to "go green" for your wedding, there are little things you can do to prevent more waste. Check out these great ideas on how to do your part....

The first wedding item every bride looks for right after getting engaged is her beautiful wedding gown. There are two ways you can plan to go eco-friendly with your dress. One is to buy an all natural, hand-made gown like this hemp and silk dress from Threadhead. The second option is to donate your wedding gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer instead of trashing it for a photo shoot or keeping it in the back of your closet.
