Sunshine And Sustainability: Eco-Friendly Summer Wedding Trends

by Nimisha Tewari 30 Apr 2024

As couples increasingly prioritize sustainability and environmental consciousness, eco-friendly wedding trends have gained popularity, offering creative and stylish ways to celebrate love while minimizing the environmental impact. With summer being a popular season for weddings, here are some eco-friendly trends to consider for your summer wedding:

1. Outdoor Venues:

  • Natural Settings: Opt for outdoor venues such as gardens, parks, vineyards or beaches to minimize the need for artificial lighting and heating, and to maximize the use of natural surroundings.

  • Tented Celebrations: For weddings held in open spaces, consider using eco-friendly tents made from sustainable materials like bamboo or recycled fabric to provide shade and shelter for guests.

    2. Sustainable Decor:

    • Upcycled Decor: Embrace upcycled decor elements such as reclaimed wood, vintage furniture and repurposed objects to add character and charm to your wedding decor.
    • Potted Plants and Succulents: Use potted plants, succulents and living centerpieces instead of cut flowers for your wedding decor. After the celebration, guests can take home these living souvenirs to plant in their gardens.

      3. Eco-Friendly Invitations:

      • Seed Paper Invitations: Consider seed paper invitations made from recycled paper embedded with wildflower seeds. Guests can plant the invitations and watch them bloom into flowers, symbolizing growth and sustainability.

        4. Sustainable Catering:
        • Locally Sourced Menu: Work with your caterer to create a menu featuring locally sourced, organic and seasonal ingredients. Choose vegetarian or vegan options to reduce the environmental impact of animal agriculture.
        • Zero-Waste Bar: Serve organic wines, locally brewed beers and artisanal spirits at your wedding bar, and minimize single-use plastics by providing reusable or biodegradable cups and straws.

          5. Ethical Fashion:

          • Eco-Friendly Attire: Choose wedding attire made from sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, hemp, bamboo or Tencel. Consider renting or buying pre-loved wedding attire to reduce waste and promote circular fashion.

          6. Renewable Energy:

          • Solar-Powered Lighting: Illuminate your outdoor wedding venue with solar-powered string lights, lanterns and torches to reduce electricity consumption and minimize the use of fossil fuels.

          • Carbon Offsetting: Offset the carbon footprint of your wedding by donating to carbon offset programs or investing in renewable energy projects. Many organizations offer carbon offsetting services that support initiatives like reforestation and clean energy development.

          7. Sustainable Favors:

          • Edible Favors: Give guests edible favors such as locally sourced honey, homemade preserves or organic chocolates packaged in recyclable or compostable materials.
          • Plantable Favors: Alternatively, provide guests with plantable favors such as seed packets, seed bombs, seed paper thankyou cards or succulent cuttings that they can grow at home, serving as a lasting reminder of your eco-friendly wedding celebration.


            Embracing eco-friendly summer wedding trends allows couples to celebrate their love in a way that aligns with their values and contributes to a more sustainable future. By incorporating elements such as outdoor venues, sustainable decor, ethical fashion and renewable energy, couples can create a memorable and stylish wedding celebration while minimizing their environmental impact.

            What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
