Good Reads ~ The Green Bride Guide: How to Create an Earth-Friendly Wedding on Any Budget

Here comes the bride, all dressed in.... green?

This past week, we celebrated Earth Day on April 22nd, but really, shouldn't every day be Earth Day? Even your wedding day, you ask? The answer is absolutely yes! Especially your wedding day! You already recycle, turn off the lights when you're not in the room, conserve water, buy local organic produce and bike to work in effort to do your part for the greater good, so why would your wedding day be any different? Many socially responsible brides are searching for ways to make their wedding environmentally friendly without sacrificing style. Eco-friendly brides want to leave a lasting impression on their guests, not the Earth.

Vassar graduate and environmentalist, Kate L. Harrison, has lots of experience with weddings, having planned her very own eco-friendly nuptials in 2007. Take advantage of her advice, tips and resources in her book, The Green Bride Guide: How to Create an Earth-Friendly Wedding on Any Budget .

Kate graduated with an independent major in Environmental Conservation and Sustainable Development and then moved to Berkeley, California, where she worked in environmental education and outreach. She’s currently completing a joint degree in Environmental Policy and law at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and Pace Law School. Her book offers the most comprehensive green wedding resource on the market, with hundreds of sustainable choices in one handy reference. Emphasizing elegance and individual taste, it covers all aspects of the big day and beyond, including:

· Eco-Engagements
· Here Comes the Eco-Chic Bride: Green Gowns, Shoes, and Veils
· Giving and Receiving Green: Thank-You Gifts and Registry
· Planning an Eco-Fabulous Honeymoon

That's not all -- there's so much more! Kate provides low, medium, and high-end choices in every category, and proves that you don’t have to break the bank to have a gorgeous green event! Whether you want to include a few green elements in your d├ęcor or have a completely carbon-neutral wedding with local organic food and a peace silk dress, you’ll find the all the resources you need in The Green Bride Guide to pull it off with panache.
