Green is the new white for today's brides - metaphorically speaking. Environmentally conscious couples are often appalled by the carbon footprint of traditional weddings and are seeking ways to express their earth-friendly values as they express their love. As Green Wedding shows, there are alternatives - products and services that can reduce environmental harm while ensuring a joyous and stylish celebration. Featuring stories of couples who have "gone green" on their wedding day, this authoritative guide by New York Times Style correspondent Mireya Navarro explains how couples can green their dream wedding, and why this is important. The book presents ideas for maximizing the sustainability of every aspect of your ceremony and reception - from choosing (and reusing) wedding attire, to offsetting the global-warming impact of your guests' travel, to designing a menu (including cake and Champagne) that's seasonal, local, and organic. And because environmental responsibility isn't just a one-day affair, the book includes chapters on ecotourism honeymoons and on living sustainably throughout your married life.
