Sustainable wedding décor ideas
Take a cue from this eco-friendly couple and decorate your wedding in a sustainable fashion
Both Abhiram Sahasrabudhe and Hamsa Iyer care deeply for the environment. For Iyer, waste management is a daily practice, whereas for Sahasrabudhe, upcycling is a way of life. Naturally, the couple adapted these practices in their wedding celebrations.
In true ecofriendly style, the couple hired reusable cutlery and cloth napkins for the dining service. Refreshments were served in reusable glasses. The décor, too, was made from reusable materials such as coconut shells, fabric and local blooms. All attendees were given native indigenous seeds as wedding favours.
Iyer recalls, “One of the biggest roadblocks was getting the details sorted with our caterer. Tie up with a waste management service to facilitate the composting of wet waste; send all the dry waste to a recycler or local upcycling agency.”
