Discover 4 easy ways to make your wedding invites more eco-friendly thanks to The Original Wedding Tea Towel company…
Weddings are expensive and with the way the world is at the moment, to spend your money on invites that are heading straight for the bin is not a viable option for many couples anymore. Spending your hard earned money on something that is ultimately going to end up in the bin is a depressing thought!
Transforming any element of your wedding for something that can be kept is a true win-win. As we learn more about the impacts of choices on the environment, we see couples making more responsible choices. If you send your guests something practical that they can use of later, like a wedding tea towel invitation, you are one step closer to having an eco-friendly wedding.
Here, The Original Wedding Tea Towel suggests the ultimate way to Zero Waste your wedding invites, save the dates or favours:
Of course, there is the tea towel itself. It’s not going to end up straight in landfill like most other invitations, it’s something your guests can actually make use of every single day.
Your invitations are the first memory that you’re going to create of your incredible day, so why not send something your guests will never forget? A cotton tea towel with your information on it, makes for the most unique wedding invitations. After the event, you can hang the invites just casually in the kitchen as tea towels. Use it as an apron, protect your outfit on your big day and then forever more.
Your tea towel invites will make fab venue decorations – hang them, frame them, use them as a guest book, the options are endless! We love the idea of using one of your invitations as a guest book on your wedding day. Frame it and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous memory hanging on your wall to make you smile every day.
The boxes or envelopes you send your invitations out in can be recycled, (or reused for that matter) and if you’re really on your game then you could use recycled packaging to begin with so that’s double world karma points for you. You can turn your wedding tea towel into a Wall art or cushions – when the designs are beautiful, it makes sense!
You may also use your wedding tea towels as blankets. A blanket, cool, cotton baby cover up for the summer months, this could be handed down for generations. Talk about a forever memory.
The days of sending guests home with personalised favours they’ll ultimately throw away, are becoming a thing of the past too. Sure everyone enjoys a chocolate on their place setting but once that’s gone, it’s gone and forgotten. Wedding tea towels make great favours for a thoughtful sustainable option your guests will actually use.
Or, pop them in the post after the wedding as one final, eternally lasting, thank you to everyone you love for sharing your day and no doubt being super generous with your gift lists! (they’ll never forget your anniversary!)
You could also turn your wedding tea towel in a memory bear each for any little ones (or future little ones!) in the family.
Think green when planning weddings, the earth is counting on you. Sustainable weddings are here to stay!
