Plans are going well for The Great Big Green Wedding Fayre, taking place in Liverpool on September 5/6th.
We can’t believe the wealth of different green businesses that have jumped on board, everything from peddle powered rickshaws to recycled jewellery, vintage tea parties to classical musicians!
We have also been pleasantly surprised by a number of traditional wedding suppliers who have been keen to find out what they need to do to ‘Go green’.
I spoke to a reporter recently who asked if the event would be “All hemp dresses and veggie food?” Well, as a matter of fact we wouldn’t say no to a hemp dress and we do have a veggie caterer- but the great variety of alternative things that will be going on are giving the event a festival feel and I defy any ‘mainstream’ bride not to get the urge to break the mould and go for the fun of being peddled to the ceremony or the romance of a night under canvas, or indeed the bargains to be had at in charity shop bridal section!
A wedding celebration or civil partnership should express your unique view of the world – not conform to what is expected, too often couples seem to follow an unspoken rule book when it comes to their own special day.
We green girls already know this, but we urge you to share this idea with your friends: Try something a little different for once!
The Great Big Green Wedding Fayre takes place at Crosby Hall Educational Trust, Liverpool on 5/6th September.
Highlights include a catwalk show courtesy of Oxfam Bridal; complimentary tea & cakes; live music; free pamper sessions with The Bodyshop at Home; the chance to win some great green hampers from friends like Lovelula; presentations by Katie Fewings from Ethical Weddings and Greg Valerio from CRED jewellery AND a green goody bag to take home (plus the odd rickshaw ride!)
Tickets cost 6.00
