Natural Fabrics - Avoid dressing your bridal party in fabrics that require dry-cleaning. Instead choose between cotton or linen that are less harsh on the environment. Your 'maids and 'men will thank you that they're more comfortable too.

Organic Foods - Ask your caterer if they can provide vegan and gluten-free fare. If not, consider using local vendors or even farmer's markets. Have leftovers? Donate them to a nearby homeless shelter or soup kitchen.

Non-Traditional Transportation - Make a statement by exiting on a gas-free ride. Aka a tandem bicycle, horse drawn carriage, or if your near the water, a boat!
