The flowers are in full bloom and so are we for the 2011 wedding season here at Denver Botanic Gardens. We just had our very first wedding on May 1. Congratulations Jessica Baum and Jeff Stone! We wish you the best and many years of happiness.
Green events are popping up everywhere and not just in gardens. Meeting and event planners are digging deeper to have sustainable events. Here are a few tips to make your event greener:
Choose edible centerpieces.
Serve local foods.
Text invitations to guests.
Reuse name badges.
Coordinate with food banks to donate left-overs.
Have your event during the day - use natural lighting.
We had a wonderful summer of weddings here at Denver Botanic Gardens. I am really looking forward to seeing some of the latest trends for weddings and receptions for 2011.
I’ve seen quite a few weddings now, and I think it's fair to say we should all be on the same page as far as what's hot and what's not for weddings in 2011.
