Mitzi and I hosted a Firstlight Photography booth at the Simply Organized Bride event in Ferndale and were really inspired. We are seeing the green wedding trend continuing stronger than ever and there are some very innovative new products – as well as some back to basics.
Our friend Nick from Avenue Catering modeled the latest biodegradable cups from Eco Products . While these won’t work for every wedding, they are an excellent alternative for outdoor weddings as well as cocktail cups. Made from corn these will vanish in your compost in 45-60 days.
Memorable Events and Catering brought an interesting alternative to the table. Bambu brand compostable plates are stylish bamboo plates that are 100 % organic. These stylish settings compost in four to six months. They also have the best bamboo appetizer sporks and delicious edible spoons that can be used for sweet or savory recipes (their chocolate spoon filled with mousse was fabulous).

One of the most charming displays was Sweet Peas and Carrot Cake. Nancy owns a sustainable flower farm and caters to weddings and special events. If you choose, you can even hand pick flowers for your bouquet. Nancy’s flower selections are not only a green alternative, but they are wonderfully unique and chic.
