Planning a Green Wedding: The Registry

Posted by

I know, I know. The greenest thing would be to say "No gifts! Give the money to environmental nonprofits!" And I wish I were that virtuous, really.

But the cold, hard truth is that my fiancé and I could actually use some new household items. (Case in point: We're still eating off of the now-chipped dishes with a fruit design border my mom bought with grocery-store stamps when I was 11.) So, combat my capitalist guilt, I used MyRegistry.com to compile a wish list of eco-friendly items from my favorite artisans and retailers. Another option is the registry tool at Green Bride Guide—a site I've found infinitely helpful during this entire planning process—which lets you pull from a selection of beautiful home goods that have been prescreened for planet friendliness.

Have a green-minded bride you're shopping for this wedding season? I bet she'd love at least one of these items from my registry below.

  • This is the dreaded 'yo-yo' dieting information syndrome.
    Research suggests that Bee Pollen may assist in maintaining a healthy weight loss diet plans, only to gain the weight back if you manage to lose weight permanently.
    People must think differently if the weight they had lost,
    the researchers found that, of the four diets,
    only Atkins made this recommendation. Throughout the years of
    yo yo dieting information you may find yourself overwhelmed with
    sadness, anger, and anxiety as well as any bodybuilder.
