The most eco-friendly weddings start when your guests sit down for dinner, says Kate Harrison, author of The Green Bride Guide. “The majority of the environmental impact from a wedding comes from the food. Because you’re feeding upwards of 150 people, and the average meal travels three to five thousand miles from where it’s grown to our place setting,” she tells The Wedding 101 Show host David Rothstein. “So try to plan a meal either using an eco-friendly caterer, or working with your regular caterer and asking them about what’s available locally and trying to incorporate the season and the region that the wedding is going to be in into the menu to decrease how far food has to travel. Also, you’ll get fresher, more delicious, often less expensive food.”
