So many themes and creative ways to throw a bridal shower, how can you choose just one? Well, if the bride to be is as committed to the environment as her fiancée, then a green bridal shower is the perfect idea!

Invitations

Why waste paper when you can just send your invitations online? Evites are an easy way for you to keep count of RSVPs and allow you include all the details of your shower on one site. You can use sites like evite.com or punchbowl.com. If you really want to send physical invites, opt for recycled paper.

Guestbook

Instead of having a guestbook, ask everyone to sign a white matting in a large frame. It will be a memorable keepsake and can be used to display a formal wedding picture after the big day. And it won’t waste all that paper!

Favors

Flower seeds make a great favor for an eco-friendly shower. Attach a note asking each guest to plant the seeds in honor of the couple’s new life together. Or you can make your own handmade soaps with all natural ingredients!

Centerpieces

Consider using small pots of flowers or small trees as a centerpiece for each table. Play a game to decide on each table’s winner and ask them to plant the tree at their own homes.

Food

Serve locally grown produce that can be kept at room temperature, like finger sandwiches or wraps. In addition, serve food and drinks on real plates and use real glassware. It make take more effort to clean, but the environment will thank you.
