Brides are planning green weddings in greater numbers than ever. Kate Harrison of greenbrideguide.com says the easiest way to go green is with your favors and invitations. Look for recycled, plantable, or tree-free papers, or even sustainably harvested wood-veneers on which to print your invites.

For favors, Kate is seeing a lot of interest in seeds or organic edibles, and the move to skip packaging and instead put favors directly on each guest’s plate.
Which came first: The DIY movement or the ever-expanding number of blogs devoted to crafty brides in search of the ultimate personal stamp for their celebration? No matter. Between retail resources like Michaels Stores and Save On Crafts and sites like DIYbride.com, it’s never been easier to get crafty.
