It was just a matter of time before eco-friendly wedding elements caught on. Now we're seeing lots of brides-to-be incorporating green accessories into their wedding plans. My Wedding Workbook reports that close to 30% of engaged couples now seek out environmentally-conscious goods and services for their weddings. There is also an increase in the number of conflict-free/blood-free/eco-friendly engagement rings being purchased. Here are few more ideas.

Eliza's Eco Friendly Wedding Tips
* Buy a used or vintage gown or one of 100% silk or cotton
* Serve an organic menu with locally grown produce and free-range meat
* Use organic, pesticide-free flowers in your bouquet
* Use plates and forks that are rewashed, not tossed
* Invite fewer guests to limit materials
* Give your wedding gifts as donations to favorite charities
* Choose recycled or 100% cotton paper for invitations to placecards. Or minimize the amount of virgin paper used and select papers that are processed chlorine-free

Remember when we told you about the surge in classic black-and-white weddings? Well, lots of pastry chefs are coming up with wedding cakes to fit the theme. Here is one truly lovely confection that we spied over at The Brides' Cafe.
