It’s a Nice Day for a Green Wedding!

As wedding season approaches, I thought I would share some pearls of wisdom with bubbling brides-to-be; ) As some of you may or may not know, I was a wedding and event planner for many years. And as of a few months ago, I planned & put on my own wedding! I took what I learned over my years in the biz and put it all together with our limited budget to host the most eco-friendly and affordable weddings I had ever planned. If I do say so myself, it was quite beautiful and I missed none of the elements that come with a large and expensive event. So I figured I would share some insider tips and secrets with you in the case that you or someone you know is headed down the aisle and is frantic about finances and/or their carbon footprint ; )

  • Plan Ahead & Be Flexible - I’ve planned many weddings within all kinds of time frames. From a couple of years to a couple of weeks. Depending on the size and style of your wedding, you may only need a few months but I typically advise on a year. Especially if you are looking for a specific date or venue, in which case I advise 18 months. This is why I say, be flexible. More often then not, the perfect date and/or venue will not be available at the same time so be sure to have options. And a lot of times, getting 1 and or both come at a premium cost. Consider an off day like a Friday or a Sunday, as well as an off season date. Many venues have lower rates on off days and seasons so try to plan around those dates to get the best possible rate in your dream location. Also, think outside of the box. Traditional venues come with many rules and stipulations that can either jack up the cost of your day or force you to use vendors that aren’t at the top of your list. In my instance, we chose to do our ceremony at a park overlooking the ocean. We had our guests stand, created an aisle with flower petals and let the scenery be our decor. Price tag – $0. Afterward we had some champagne with our guests, sent them on their way to dine and freshen up while we took our photos, making it back home just in time for our backyard reception. Lucky for us we have a fun patio complete with a tiki bar but if you’re looking for affordable, consider asking a friend to use their house or yard for the reception. It can be their wedding gift to you. Stringing up some market lights will do wonders to a backyard, making it look simple and elegant for the cost of dinner & a movie, if not less. We saved time, a ton of money, frustration and added to our eco-karma by not renting chairs or having anything delivered. So again, be flexible with your times, dates, themes, etc. because you may be surprised at how great it turns out if you give yourself some options ; )
  • Pool Your Resources & Get Creative – There are many elements to a wedding: flowers, music, dresses, food, photos, videos and on and on. And having been a part of the wedding world for almost a decade, I will tell you that as...

Summer Lovin’

If you haven’t noticed, summertime is wedding time. One of my many hats is that of a wedding planner so I definitely get my fill come fall be it from working them or going to them ; ) And it is very difficult to stay healthy at such events but have no fear as the healthy, voyaging, event planner is here to help ; )

The trip is exhausting enough as flights or road trips are an excuse to eat fast and convenient. Then you get to the hotel and eat a nice, expensive, in room meal that is most likely greasy and eaten at an ungodly hour. Fast forward to wedding day where you spent all morning getting ready so all you had was coffee and maybe a starchy bagel. You arrive at the glorious event famished so you gorge on hors d’oeuvres and alcoholic beverages. You pick at your lame and tasteless chicken or fish or for us veggies, cold pasta, and you feel like a cow come the bouquet toss. Sound familiar?

Here are a few tips to keep your trip to, at and from the festivities enjoyable and guilt free:
∗ Pack enough protein bars for the flight/ride, wedding day and trip home. Cliff bars and Luna bars are yummy and Vegan!!
∗ If you are stuck at an airport, there is always a food court that has some kind of place to get a sandwich or a salad that you can order your way. Smoke may come out of the fast food person’s ears but just ask and they will do it with proper instruction. I know it’s easy to run to Mcd’s but take an extra few minutes to scour your terminal. A lot of ports have “Chili’s to gos” now and you can great a salad there or my personal fave, a black bean burger with all the fixin’s (sans cheese). If you are running late, don’t!!! Plan ahead, eat breakfast and get there on time!!
∗At the hotel, try to resist temptation and instead of ordering room service, find the local grocery store, get a cheap cooler and stock up with veggies, fruit and sandwich stuff for dinner and breakfas...

TX Wedding Laws

Today, Many Couples Seek Out A More Personalized, Non-Denominational Wedding Ceremony. These Non-Denominational Wedding Ceremonies Are Increasingly Popular Among Couples From Different Religious Backgrounds And/Or Amongst Couples Who Prefer A Non-Religious Wedding Ceremony. Many Non-Denominational Ministers Will Be More Than Happy To Incorporate Elements Into The Wedding Ceremony That Have An Intimate Meaning To The Couple, Whether These Elements Are Based On Traditional Religious Practices Or Not. All States Have Their Own Set Of Wedding Laws. In The State Of Texas, The Wedding Laws Are Governed By The Texas Family Code. Section 2.202 Of The Texas Family Code Establishes The State Law Regarding The Performance Of A Wedding Ceremony. There Is No Requirement That A Wedding Officiant Be A Resident Of The State Of Texas Or Of A Certain Age. An Online-Ordained Minister Is Also Able To Perform Weddings In The State Of Texas. The Following Are The Criterion As Set Forth In The Texas Family Code For Wedding Officiants: A Person Who Is An Officer Of A Religious Organization And Who Is Authorized By The Organization To Conduct A Marriage Ceremony A Jewish Rabbi A Licensed Or Ordained Christian Minister Or Priest A Justice, Magistrate Or Judge Of Any Of The State, County Or Federal Courts In The State Of Texas. Please Note: Wedding Officiants Must Complete The Marriage License And Return It To The County Clerk Who Issued It Within Thirty Days Of The Marriage. Texas Wedding State Law Does Not Distinguish Between A Wedding Officiant Who Has Been Ordained Online Or By A Seminary School. A Month Or So Before Performing The Wedding, It Is Prudent To Check With The County Clerk Where You Will Be Officiating The Wedding Ceremony To Clarify If There Are Any Other Documents Required By That Particular County, Such As A Notarized Letter Stating That You Are In Good Standing With The Religious Organization That Ordained You. However, The Various Counties In Texas Follow Closely Section 2.202 Of The Texas Family Code. The State Of Texas, As Mentioned Before, Does Not Require A Wedding Officiant To Be A State Resident. Officiating A Wedding Ceremony In Texas As An Online-Ordained Minister Is Quite Easy If You Are Authorized By A Religious Organization To Perform Marriage Ceremonies And You Are An Officer Of The Religious Organization. Otherwise, You Must Be An Ordained Christian Minister Or Jewish Rabbi. You Will Need Your Ordination Certification To Present To The County Clerk. Do Remember To File The Marriage License In The Texas County Where Your Performed The Marriage Within Thirty Days Of The Wedding. Familiarity With Section 2.202 Of The Texas Family Code Is Important If You Plan On Regularly Officiating Wedding Ceremonies In The State Of Texas. It Is Also Wise To Double-Check With The Local County Clerk Where You Will Be Officiating The Wedding To Make Sure That The County Does Not Need Any Additional Documentation From You Prior To The Wedding. Most Counties Follow The Texas Family Code To The Letter And Other Than A Letter Of Good Standing, You Will Only Be Required To Present Appropriate Identification And Your Ordination Certification. Same Sex Wedding Law: To Perform A Marriage In Texas You Need To Be Ordained And May Be Required To Provide Proof Of Ordination Such As An Ordination Credential , Wallet Credential , Or A Letter Of Good Standing From The Church.
