Going green! This month on Polka Dot Bride, we are exploring waste-free and sustainable weddings. Unfortunately, throwing a big event often results in a tonne of waste, from the leftover food and the dress that is just worn once, to the confetti that is tossed into the air then almost immediately is swept up and trashed.

However, it is not all doom and gloom! No, no. There are plenty of couples opting for eco-friendly weddings, which makes us do a little happy dance inside. This month we are shining a light on the sustainable wedding movement and providing plenty of insight into how you can make your special day a little kinder to the planet.

You’ll be inspired to go green with eco-friendly wedding favour ideas and examples of real weddings where couples have made the pledge to go waste-free. We have interviewed thought leaders in the sustainable living space who will make you see how easy it is to make sustainable wedding planning decisions, and we’re even throwing in a couple of cool cocktail ideas that have a green twist.

At a time when climate change and banning single-use products is on everyone’s lips, there’s no better time to think of the planet first when you’re planning your wedding day. Dive into The Green Issue by clicking the banner below and let’s all make the pledge to be greener today!
