Let's get down to earth as the new year gets ready to roll in. Now more than ever, couples getting married will consider further environmentally friendly options. We anticipate the sustainable 2020 wedding trend flourishing beyond the eco-conscious couple as many look for ways to incorporate organic and more natural choices. Today's inspiration takes root at Beyond Organic Growers and is an undeniably gorgeous way for a winter bride to stay green this season. Courtney Simpson Photography echoes those organic, neutral vibes that seem to be a tell-tale sign of how to put a winter spin on the sustainable 2020 wedding trend. Not only did she capture the beauty of this organic winter garden wedding at the greenhouse, but also was behind the planning and design. We must confess our crush started with the groom's green velvet tuxedo of Chazmatazz Formalwear.
With food waste being a top way to lessen the environmental impact that can occur at a wedding, many couples are looking first to this area when it comes to planning. The sustainable 2020 wedding trend will have couples gravitating toward utilizing locally grown proteins as well as vegetable-forward menus. It's really an opportunity to have incredibly fresh and seasonal ingredients while also lowering the environmental impact especially when you select vendors committed to trash-free and carbon-neutral catering. The reduction of an unsustainable aftermath that can occur were even addressed at both royal weddings. Meghan and Harry asked for donations to a pollution-fighting charity in lieu of traditional gifts. Princess Eugenie took it a step farther and opted for an entirely plastic-free wedding. This setting is filled with modern, industrial details with a slight hint of glamor. While the venue itself is committed to farming for our future, the vertical towers they use to yield more crops per square footage make for an amazing lush background. This also provides a fresh twist that nixes the need for a large floral budget too.
