Going Green – Expert Tips from DeJuan Stroud

Blooming FlowersBalancing ecology, style, expenses and tradition isn’t always an easy task, but it’s important that couples inquire about the different eco-friendly options that wedding planners, florists, caterers, bakers, and venues have to offer when planning a wedding.

The more questions you ask the better it is for the environment, so why not go green!?

For your decorating and floral decisions DeJuan Stroud, Event & Floral Designer of DeJuan Stroud Inc has offered us these wonderful tips.

  • Use locally (or regionally) grown and seasonal flowers that can be bought from community markets and don’t have to be shipped from foreign locations.
  • Incorporate live trees in centerpieces that can be planted later (a great ceremony backdrop) or donated to a local school or charity rather than cut flowers that will be thrown away.
  • Use products from nature in the theme of your wedding such as sand, rocks, tree limbs and flowers.
  • Have your wedding locally; destination weddings are expensive and not eco-friendly.
  • Recycled bamboo-disposable plates are chic, biodegradable, and add a unique touch to table decor.
  • Incorporate candles of soy, hemp and citronella oils to give a romantic setting, yet earth friendly environment.
  • Use wooden tables (ex. farm tables, mango slab tables) that can be used over and over and don’t need cloths.
