Get Inspired: Earth Day Inspired Wedding Design

In honor of Earth Day (April 22) we've decided to change up our traditional "Get Inspired" Inspiration Boards this week by giving you insight into some of the best eco-friendly wedding products available to help you plan a green wedding.

1. Bee Hive Candles - Beeswax is a renewable all natural product with no additives or fillers. It is non-toxic, safe enough to eat, and often used in cosmetics. It is most commonly used as a clean burning & bright fuel source as a beeswax candle. Unlike most of the manufactured paraffin candles, beeswax is hypo-allergenic, great for people with allergies or other sensitivities and those of us who want a safe, clean burning candle in our homes.

 

2. A Little Bit of Paradise Bath Gift Basket from Tread Light Gifts - Turn off your cell phone, run your bath water, and slip away into an organic bath paradise. After a bath in these organic and all-natural bath products, your skin will feel silky smooth and your mind and body will be relaxed. Perfect for a bridesmaid gift.

 

3. Wedding band from Green Karat - Celebrate your new perspective with Constellation, Green Karat's depiction of the canopy of stars we all share. These 18k recycled gold bands are cast in 18k 100% post-consumer recycled white gold.

 

4. Mini Palm Wedding Favors from Beau-Coup - Each fresh, natural plant comes prettily packaged with elegant cellophane wrapping and a ribbon in the color of your choice. Simply slip on the bow and your mini tree favors are ready to go!
