field & gown - Vienna, Va

image8

field & gown is designed to provide eco-conscious brides an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wedding decor.  

In today's social media crazed environment, it is understandable that brides want their weddings to be as photo-worthy as the next. Unfortunately the pressure and desire to create "your look" often overshadow considerations about responsible consumption. Cheaper vibe-creating elements purchased from big box stores are often irresponsibly produced and ultimately destined for the landfill. At field & gown we source our rentables from local antique stores and flea markets, repurposing items that have had other uses for decades, extending their lifecycle and diverting them from the landfill. As part of our environmental pledge, we seek to minimize plastics in our shipping, opting instead for paper-wrapped goods and paper tape. Your goods may come shipped in an eclectic mix of boxes, even some which we've recovered from other companies, as part of our attempt to reuse and recycle goods otherwise destined for the trash heap or recycle bin.

EK events - NC & VA

North Carolina Wedding and Event Planner. Planning custom weddings across NC and VA. Specializing in Geek Chic and Low-Waste.Sometimes, having a wedding can seem unnecessarily eccentric and wasteful. The average American wedding produces 400-600 pounds of trash- that’s about a billion tons of waste each year. This waste includes food, flowers, paper products. All this waste seems silly when you think about how much money is spent on these items!

If this seems crazy to you, know that it doesn’t need to be this way! You can have the wedding of your dreams, and be mindful of the waste you are creating. There are plenty of ways we can reduce the waste generated by your wedding. Whether you want to reduce the environmental impact of your big day, or just want to feel like your money isn’t being tossed in the trash, I would love to help you in planning your sustainable wedding!

Locally sourced botanicals from Cary florist Springwell Gardens.

  • Invitations- Go paperless! Or print on recycled or sustainably sourced paper.
  • Food- Work with your caterer to provide local or organic food. At the end of the night, have leftovers boxed up and table scraps composted.
  • Flowers- There are tons of options when it comes to your sustainable flowers! Go fake, to create something you can keep forever. Bonus points for creating bouquets out of recycled materials. If you want real flowers, try potted plants, or arrange to have your flowers do double duty and donate to a hospital at the end of the night.
  • Favors- Choose something consumable that won’t end up in the trash. Or opt out of “favors” entirely by making a donation on your guests behalf to your favorite charity.
  • Decor- Rent your decor or purchase second hand. You can do this with your attire as well!

Keen Events - Portland, Oregon

image17

The average wedding produces 400- 600 lbs of garbage. Is that alarming to you? It was to me.

I coordinated a wedding where guests left their trash and plastic water bottles all over the place. I also coordinated a wedding where folks searched a park until they located the remnants of a single popped balloon.  I observed both situations, and how they made me feel. 

I'm not the best at recycling and I certainly don't know everything there is to know about being eco-friendly, but I needed to do something to be proactive. I did some research, got educated, and am proud to share Keen Events is Oregon's first Green Certified Wedding Planner. I've made it my mission to do my part to help the 78% of couples looking to include eco-friendly elements in their weddings. From using recycled paper for your invitations and programs, to incorporating local, organic, seasonal food into your menus, there are endless ways to be more earth conscious, even if it is just in one element of your wedding day.

Keen Event couples receive complimentary eco-friendly consultations and private consultations are available upon request.
