Green and Good Wedding Ideas

My Thoughts for a Green and Good Event

Green and good wedding ideas are hard for some humans but not for me! I suggest for everyone to always say “what if” and  (not to be confused with what sniff) always think outside the box-no matter what.  Think nothing is impossible, leashes and rules limit your creativity and…your dreams.  As a green greyhound I have yet another way of thinking, and of course take it one step farther with another view from my world.  Every day is an experience for me so I always have the what if-why not-I wonder.   Great ideas & experiences come along that way.

During our event or wedding consultations I listen intently at the many details so to add my input, and pay close intent to anything that can be greener and always the menu!

My Latest Green and Good Wedding Event Idea

So my latest idea, and it is just a perfect one for all worlds concerned;  I began to wonder what happens to all these luscious leftovers, as unlike canine menus where nothing is left (we graciously even clean our own plates!)  But humans always leave so much untouched; is it just left and tossed?  It can’t be just forgotten?  Who would forget yummy food?

So…. how creative would it be to have small boxes given out for the guests to each take home the wedding tidbits?  Whether their own plate, the unserved bites from the kitchen, or the cake.  This could be the best reminder of the wedding; favors are cool but to me leftovers rock to any specie.

I searched my idea and guess what-I found decorative, earth friendly, boxes that easily could even be labeled with a note to “bring the celebration home “ (and to maybe share with the ‘entire’ family-smile) Or how about this-another thoughtful, option could be to use the same little boxes for the unserved food & cake; sending it to a human, homeless shelter.  Even if there was a little extra serving charge; how really cool would that be!    How good would you feel to know you gave to those who had less, and there was nothing wasted to the landfill; I mean you paid for it anyway…..                                     

Of course, I am working out the details of the absolute bestest idea-the meat bones from all the steak dinners.  If you could figure a plan to gather all those afterward for the canine shelters, wouldn’t that be grand!    All my poor shelter friends would be so appreciative and think it was their birthday; they’d just love you for it!  Think about it because green is good and good is green-for everyone-even dogs.

Always dreaming, Willow
