Green Vibes

Sustainable weddings are on the rise and we’re here for it. Consider “upcycling” your wedding,

by committing to zero waste or a reduced carbon footprint. A lighter version of this 2020 wedding trend includes resetting a family stone or heirloom engagement ring, repurposing ceremony florals, foraging, providing drink stations in avoiding plastic water bottles, sourcing locally grown food or hiring vendors who also prioritize sustainability.

Did you know that the average wedding produces 400lbs of garbage? And emits roughly 14.5 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere? Now considering that the average person emits 12 tons in a year, that’s quite a considerable amount to reach for just one day.

But fear not brides and grooms to be, Above and Beyond Creations are wedding professionals that are actively trying to reduce the industries’ environmental impact, and help steer their clients in a more sustainable direction.

We always encourage and find ways for clients to include Recycle, Reuse and Regenerate,
from renting items rather than purchasing things that will just get thrown out, to choosing bio-degradable products – maintaining a minimal footprint is at the heat of all decisions for their weddings and events.

One of the sweetest things we encourage our clients to do is give significant guests
arrangements and donate leftover flowers to the local Senior Center or hospital, after a wedding or event is complete.
