In every industry, there is an increasing push towards more sustainable practices, and the wedding industry is no exception. Couples are thinking about the environmental impact of their wedding day and trying to reduce it as much as possible. Here are some of the ways you can incorporate sustainability into your day.
Wedding favours can sometimes be seen as a big contribution to waste. They’re often something small and gimmicky, rather than something guests will actually use. In 2024, we think couples are going to be opting for usable or consumable wedding favours.
Here at Old Palace Chester, we can supply you with delicious cocktail favours that are sure to go down a treat with your guests.
From Pornstar Martini to Negroni, Old Fashioned to Espresso Martini and a selection of delicious mocktails – these beautiful bottles can be enjoyed on the day or be taken home, offering your guests a wonderful keepsake of their time with you. Speak to our events team for more information.
Couples are beginning to question where their wedding flowers come from and their carbon footprint. Couples tend to prioritise sourcing flowers that are in season at the time. Florists are now looking into new ways to cut down waste, moving away from floral foam and working with locally grown flowers.
Dried and preserved bouquets are seeing a sharp rise in popularity, particularly for winter weddings. This means that brides can keep their flowers for longer and even use them again in their own homes after the wedding day.
In 2024, we’re predicting that we’ll see a rise in more sustainable stationery options. We’re seeing couples cut down on how much paper they’re using, with some opting to go paperless entirely, replacing them with apps.
With couples who would prefer to keep their weddings technology-free, we’re seeing an increase in using recycled paper or seed paper which can be planted after the wedding.
