A Sustainable Wedding

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

As seen on the Brotherhood of St Laurence blog, newly weds Sarah and Liam opted for a recycled, sustainable wedding day.

The couple were married in the heritage listed NSW town of Braidwood last month. Sarah wore a spectacular dress made of second hand doilies created by Canberra based textile artist Chris McIntosh, and her husband, Liam, wore a suit from the local op shop in Quenbeyan.

Sarah's Bridesmaid wore a dress she purchased from eBay

And they pedaled away to their accommodation after the reception, in two bikes salvaged and refurbished from the tip.

Sarah and Liam were recently interviewed for Woman's Day magazine for their sustainable wedding too.

Way to go!

I love this. I'm in the planning stage of my wedding, and have taken a similar strategy. :) My dress is vintage, we're using colorful vintage tablecloths, I made my save-the-dates from fabric and paper that was going to be tossed out, and I've instructed my bridesmaids to not buy anything new to wear for the wedding. Not only are these DIY and repurposed touches lovely, they're also a heck of a lot cheaper! :)

You don't have to spend much on a lovely wedding. The celebration can be memorable AND environment-friendly, too.

That's a really lovely-looking couple and that scenic stone wall in the background just makes everything more special.

It doesn't matter if you have an extravagant or a simple wedding. What matters most is the ceremony. I want to have a simple wedding too in the future.
