One of the many things that you can do to incorporate eco-friendly ways is to go for e-invites. Thanks to technology, now it is very easy to go paperless at the wedding. Instead of traditional Indian wedding cards, you can go for choosing e-invites, messages along with save-the-dates as they get quicker and you can all be playful when it comes to creativity. Yes, there are many elements like audio files or GIFS that can be the part of your wedding invitations which is conventionally not possible for wedding cards made of paper.
Not only this proves to be one strong move in conserving paper, but it is cost effective too. Yes, it will help you in cutting down all the expenses of creating papered wedding cards and even on postage and courier.
E-invites surely work well but there is one substantial thing that is overlooked most of the time. You can send it to your friends and family but maybe some of the elderly guests on your guest list aren’t on any social media or have access to email. There are many people in the guest list, who might not have the Smartphone or are not tech-savvy; you need to find a solution for them as well.
One of the best ways is to have the Indian wedding cards made of plantable paper for them. Yes, you can specifically ask your designer to use the plantable paper for your invitations as they cause no harm to the environment. These sustainable beauties are made of nothing but biodegradable materials and are embedded with seeds. So if you guests plant them in their lawn or pot, they will sprout into a beautiful plant which adds up to thoughtful wedding favor as well.
Other than that you can have recycled paper as well for your wedding cards. You can even go for the environment-friendly mode of printing by using vegetable ink. Yes, they look totally spectacular and serve the purpose well.
As the wedding favors you can go for giving the potted plants or seeds to your guests. This is a thoughtful gesture and your guests will surely love it. Everywhere around the world, we address nature as “Mother Nature”. So embark this new journey with her blessings. It might be a little effort but it has to start from somewhere. Don’t worry, you are not compromising anything, as these little steps will add up to a natural and beautiful wedding.
