Book Description

Jan. 1 2009
Green is the new white for today's brides--metaphorically speaking. Environmentally conscious couples are often appalled by the carbon footprint of traditional weddings and are seeking ways to express their earth-friendly values as they express their love. As Green Wedding shows, there are alternatives--products and services that can reduce environmental harm while ensuring a joyous and stylish celebration.
 
Featuring stories of couples who have "gone green" on their wedding day, this authoritative guide by New York Times Style correspondent Mireya Navarro explains how couples can green their dream wedding, and why this is important. The book presents ideas for maximizing the sustainability of every aspect of your ceremony and reception--from choosing (and reusing) wedding attire, to offsetting the global-warming impact of your guests' travel, to designing a menu (including cake and Champagne) that's seasonal, local, and organic. And because environmental responsibility isn't just a one-day affair, the book includes chapters on ecotourism honeymoons and on living sustainably throughout your married life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Wedding is very down-to-earth Aug. 26 2009
By clay artist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I just read "Green Wedding" to get ideas for a friend's ceremony and I loved the book. To make her points, Navarro tells the stories of several actual weddings for which the participants and planners tried to make environmentally responsible decisions, and her narratives are very down-to-earth and believable. Navarro provides dozens of photographs of these individuals and ceremonies, making her stories that much more compelling and authentic. The book is beautifully written, as you would expect from a New York Times reporter. Without being didactic, Navarro makes the case not just for green weddings, but for adopting eco-friendly lifestyles in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book on The Green Weddings Yet Aug. 17 2009
By Gabriel Reyes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the best book on Green Weddings yet. We the readers are lucky that Ms. Navarro is a very well respected journalist for The New York Times. Her descriptions, her prose are all very concise, direct and to the point. Chock full of "reporting", always providing different examples and alternatives to every aspect of this very special occasion. Buy this 5-star book and have a 5-star Green Wedding!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, beautiful resource Aug. 15 2009
By Tammy E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is cleverly written, yet down to earth at the same time. It is full of ideas that are practical, original and actionable, with suggestions of ways to green your wedding - or really any event - in ways that are both large and small. It gave me ideas that I now even apply to my family BBQs here at home. I found in a very entertaining read...at times a little tongue-in-cheek which made it even more of a pleasure. The layout and photography are sleek, modern and stunning; this is a beautiful book. A wonderful resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with wonderful pictures! Aug. 8 2010
By Sara Tryzelaar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought four "eco" and "green" wedding books to help plan my wedding and this was the best one! It has great pictures and goes into a bit more detail and covers more things than the other books that I purchased. The other books had just the basics like location, number of guests, invitations, etc....but this book went into detail on each of those things, giving unique ideas and wonderful pictures! Would definitely recommend to others!
