A fun way to bring the natural theme to your wedding, this tree ring with pink faux flower and ribbon makes a picturesque ring pillow for your wedding day.
The tree rings are made to order, sanded and preserved with wood stain. They are about 4” in diameter and 1” thick, so not as chunky as they look in the photo. The ribbons come in the color of your choice.
Tree Ring Pillows cost $19.99 from the Little Wee Shop on Etsy.

Fleur de Sel caramel, rich and creamy with a sophisticated salty tang makes a great wedding favor. When it is packaged in eco-friendly unbleached paper bags and tied with ribbon it is a perfect green gift for your guests.
The caramel is handmade, soft and chewy and looks irresistible. There are three in each package, individually wrapped in natural unbleached parchment paper. The vanilla and salt used is already organic, but 100% organic ingredients can be used on request, though it costs more. And while we’re on cost, just check the shipping fee before ordering, as it will add quite considerably to the total.
The caramels themselves cost $225 (plus shipping $75) for 100 bags with three caramels in each from The Caramel Jar on Etsy.

White weddings can be green and your wedding dress doesn’t have to be a once-worn extravagance, destined to hang in the back of the closet hopefully, just in case your daughter might want to wear it one day!
The greenest path to a white wedding is to choose a pre-owned wedding dress. This could be a once-worn dress, a vintage dress, or even the one your mother has saved for you all these years!
Blue Sky Bridal has racks of wedding dresses to choose from and you can visit by appointment to select the one for you. After your wedding day you could choose to send your dress back to them to delight another bride another day. They accept wedding dresses that are less than 4 years old on consignment and also have vintage dresses and new dresses to choose from.
