A Med in Style personalized one-of-a-kind wedding always carries colours, atmosphere and scent of Mediterranean flavours. It also carries our soul essence: we will never, ever hurt any pet or the Mediterranean environment.
Every girl has her own fairytale version and our task is to make it real thus respecting flora and fauna. You don’t have to be a vegan to appreciate an ethical wedding party, we just ask you to pay attention to our beautiful world.
WEDDING PARTY TIPS
We don’t expect you to wage war against your venue if it doesn’t have low-flow toilets, but we’re all for helping the earth — and you can do it without sacrificing your wedding reception.
Traditional spaces, such as hotel ballrooms and fancy resorts, tend to use loads of electricity, water and other typically not-so-earth-friendly products. Get married outdoors and skip the electricity with the sun providing all the lighting!
We know an outdoor ceremony and reception don’t work for everyone. If you want to be indoors, there are several ways you can make it green. First, hold your ceremony and reception in one place, so no one will have to travel to get from one event to the next and you’ll cut back on fuel emissions. Look for hotels that recycle and use energy-efficient appliances and biodegradable products.
WEDDING GOWN AND SHOES TIPS
Choosing the fabric for your gown and bridesmaid dresses can be difficult. You want to wear a comfortable wedding dress which reflects your wedding’s theme, the season, and your unique sense of style. For an eco-friendly wedding, you should also consider where the fabric comes from and how it’s made. Most conventional fabrics have a negative impact on the environment and human health.
For these reason, we suggest your bridesmaid to have a look at H&M Conscious Collection:
All clothes are made in collaboration with the sustainable fashion and design think-tank Ever Manifesto, who shares H&M’s commitment to a sustainable fashion future.
No matter how practical a couple thinks their parting gifts are, many guests throw them out. Also, some plastics, metals and fabrics that couples use to package their favors are tough on the environment to produce and hard to get rid of because they don’t biodegrade.
One option is to give edible favours. Choose a bottle of Mediterranean Olive Oil or Mediterranean local wine: not only will you save on gas by staying local, but you’ll also be using glass containers that guests may recycle or reuse after they’ve finished what’s inside. If you prefer more lasting favor, give out something guests can grow, like seeds in pretty packets. Or group lemon together to make a centerpiece and then let each guest take one home.
