Available in a variety of sizes and scents, these candles burn about about 40% longer than wax candles, are soot-free and do not emit any harmful toxins (like Benzene) into the air.

This is a pine tree covered in frost. There is no saying that your winter wedding will have guaranteed beautiful winter scenes, but you can definitely control you decor for the event.

You can get this look with artificial pine!

What you need:
Fake pine bundles (or any winter tree of your liking), spray adhesive and white and silver sparkle dusting powder! Do this project outside though! It can get messy.

This Place Card: Dream Green Wedding

The planting, watering and budding of a seed into a wonderful garden of green has long been paralleled to the flourishing of love itself. Make this symbolic connection in a pretty, practical and eco-friendly way with these snowflake Please Be Seeded™ place cards that double as a favor. Include them in your wedding or wedding shower and your guests will have a beautiful array of blossoming wildflowers to enjoy as a reminder of your special day. That's because attached to each of these place cards is a removable white paper snowflake (made with recycled paper!) containing wildflower seeds ready to nurture. With the planting instructions and list of flowers printed elegantly on the back, everyone in your party will soon have the chance to show off their green thumbs. Guests names can be handwritten on each place card or printed on clear labels and affixed. Each card is decorated with dazzling white snowflake prints and the "Please Be Seeded" note cleverly directing parties to their tables. The best part is that this favor is environmentally friendly: The tent style place cards are made from recycled paper, and the detachable seed paper shapes grow into wildflowers. Your guests will love to plant and care for these wildflowers and will remember your special day each time they water them. Going "green" has never been so unique!

I always stress vintage because there is something about the beauty, craftsmanship, and uniqueness to vintage pieces. This silver bracelet would be a great addition to any brides look.

Invitations: Dream Green Wedding

These gorgeous invitations truly sparkle! Each wedding invitation is embellished with one Swarovski crystal. The wedding invitation is enclosed in a recycled, pearl white petal envelope adorned with a designer belly band. A classic pearl white outer envelope completes the ensemble. This extraordinary letterpress printing process gives these invitations a special distinction, but more importantly, makes them eco-friendly.

If you look hard enough in antique stores you will find treasures that can give just the right touch to your day. Even if it is one simple piece that you find. Maybe it could be used for your cake plate for both of you to share or it could hold your champagne glasses, the options are endless. Think out of the box!
