Oak + Honey Event Planning Co. is a sustainable event planning business that specializes in unique wedding and event design.
WHAT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY EVENT PLANNING?
The average wedding in the U.S. produces 400 pounds of garbage and 63 tons of CO2. This can include flowers, paper (invitations), textiles (dress, suits), gas emissions (transportation), and so much more. Together, American weddings are equivalent to 8.3 million cars driving on the road for a year. (Source: Green Bride)
Environmentally-friendly planning does not mean that your wedding needs to be zero-waste. What it does mean is that you’re conscientious about the resources consumed in the production of your event, and that you search out ways to make environmentally friendly choices throughout your planning process. A sustainable planner like Oak + Honey Event Planning Co. does all the things a typical planner does but is especially adept at reducing the impact your event has on the environment. As part of our planning process we regularly find creative ways to help you source materials and design details locally, and to work with green or do-good vendors who give back to the community.
In 2014 Oak + Honey Events Co. created the Recycled Wedding Boutique, a flea market of sorts where soon-to-be-married couples can shop for their weddings from the new, slightly used, and vintage items that recently-married couples no longer need.
