Seeing that some of my bloggy friends were vying for the Wedding Channels Bridal Blog Awards, I checked out the contenders. It's exciting to see some of the awesome blogs that I've been reading ever since the first days of wedding planning being nominated for the title of 'best blog.' I'm excited to see who wins!
But.... the category of Best Eco-Friendly Bridal blog is getting me down a bit. Is this the best of the best when it to comes to planning an eco-friendly wedding??? Now, I love Green Wedding Shoes. It's one of the few inspiration blogs I still read because the images are consistently gorgeous. I've been reading it since... forever.... and a few sustainable weddings (including my own!) have been featured there. But I never thought of it as an explicitly eco-friendly wedding blog.
Are there no practical folks planning sustainable weddings? Where are the offbeat eco-friendly brides and grooms? We need stories and inspiration from real people, describing their successes and challenges in creating weddings that honor their love AND the Earth. More stories like A Low Impact Wedding.
Here's the challenge: it's time for those couples who are planning consciously eco-friendly weddings to step out of the background... come out of the forest... down from the mountain... out of the ocean... where ever you are hanging out, and share your stories of your green/ sustainable/ organic/ environmentally-conscious weddings. If you've got one to share, I'll gladly feature it here.
