Why have an eco wedding in Malaga

An Eco friendly wedding in Malaga is perfect because of the luscious greenery and floral scenery naturally found in Malaga. The beauty of this type of wedding is that you can contribute to reducing your carbon footprint.  The costs of decorating outdoor weddings are reduced as you get away with doing less and accepting what´s already there.  Use surrounding plants, trees and Mediterranean flowers to shape your wedding backdrop and theme.  After all nature itself already provides a beautiful and unique Eco friendly wedding space as it continues to change each day, as new flowers open.  Malaga has some amazing intimate outdoor spaces with fountains, lily ponds, providing a romantic setting to say your I do´s. You really can´t go wrong.

So, you´ve made some savings utilising the natural environment, now´s your moment to enjoy luxuries like an Eco friendly hotel.

Use flowers that are in season by using local suppliers

If you live in Malaga include a planting ritual and take your plants home and if travelling film the ritual and later you can donate them to local hospitals or nursing home. Maybe you know someone in Malaga who would love to receive the fruit of your planting ritual.

Use potted plants for your wedding flowers or herbs; which flower. If using a floral bouquet opt for a mix of seasonal and dried flowers to reflect your theme. Because succulents are also Mediterranean they are very versatile. As such can be fused into an attractive bouquet. In addition they are perfect for table decorations at indoor and outdoor receptions. Later you can appreciate them at home.

If you are already living together and don´t require personalised gifts for your home, you could even ask family and friends to make eco friendly wedding favours to charities. Eco donations can include tree planting from foundations like One Tree Planted, the Arbor day Foundation and Plant a tree foundation.

Eco wedding meal/refreshments

Fancy something a little bit different, why not try some organic or bio organic wines and healthy locally grown foods. Byoko Malaga has a plafora of organic, healthy and exciting dishes to explore and offer a takeaway option. It´s possible to include a wine tasting or wine ritual in your celebrant led ceremony. If you´re likely to have lots of surplus food, speak with the catering company, hotel etc in advance, about the possibility of being able to donate to a local homeless charity etc.

Renting is an option

Renting wine glasses for a wedding reception or a picnic rather than buying plastic versions is an eco friendly option whether you´re having refreshments indoors or out. Even if it´s just the two of you you can still party in style.

Hire your outfits, you don´t need to carry them to Spain and also can return afterwards. If you´re into charity finds, there´s some amazing charity vintage stores in Malaga where you are likely to find something perfect for your celebrant led wedding. You can choose to take them home or donate back to the store where you bought them.

Eco friendly things to throw at a wedding

Considering the environmental impact when having an outdoor wedding is important, there´s lots of alternatives for your exit line.   Lavender, herbs or rose petals, alternatives to rice and paper, reduce environmental damage whilst introducing a wonderful perfume too.  Store in paper, placing left overs in a handkerchief under your pillow or amongst clothes.  A glass vessel can be reused later to diffuse perfume from petals and herbs into a room.  Both options serve as an extension of your special day and reminder of memories and sensations you can enjoy together.
