GREEN IS THE NEW BLACK!We adore that interest in “Green Weddings” has gone off the charts!Culinary Crafts has been at the forefront of this movement in catering with our bio-diesel trucks delivering fresh handmade, locally produced food and culinary products to our ever-growing environmentally conscientious clientele on a daily basis. Well, now that you’ve chosen the scrumptious and inventive, locally inspired Culinary Crafts menu it’s time to think “Eco Chic” for the rest of the details. There are growing options in the bridal collections of several designers houses, such as Chris Cole’s “The Cotton Bride.” It features fabulously stylish, sustainable alternatives in cotton satins, chiffon and even cotton tulle!For Spring and Summer garden receptions, cool and crisp Cotton Linens with arrangements of native and regional grown floral and greenery.And if you want to recycle the flowers, move the arrangements from the ceremony to the reception and then arrange for them to be to be dropped off at a local hospital or nursing home. For favors, how about some locally made jam or pots of Utah honey. Or perhaps in lieu of favors, donate to a Green Organization in honor of your guests.Forgo using disposable products as much as possible, and choose eco-friendly bio-degradable items and sustainable materials such as Bamboo and Corn Starch based plastic alternatives.Making your wedding “Green” is not that difficult. Even small efforts made will make an impact. Even if you are only able to incorporate a couple of Green ideas into your wedding, you’ve lessened the negative impact on the environment and are helping pave the way to a better world for your new family!
