If you'd love a beautiful, earth-friendly wedding -- you're not alone. More couples are choosing green weddings, according to The New York Times, citing surveys by bridal magazines and businesses that point to a noticeable trend. In fact, Goggle reported that in one month alone there were over 105,300 searches in the U.S. for "green wedding" or similar wording.

“There's a definite trend toward green weddings, with increased media coverage and mainstreaming of many eco-friendly components,” comments Corey Colwell-Lipson, green living expert and mother of two.

"As a green living expert, I'm pleased that EcoPartyTime.com has added an Eco-wedding category because it's now easier for brides and grooms to align their values with their vision for a memorable, meaningful wedding," said Colwell-Lipson.

"I particularly recommend EcoPartyTime.com's unique selection of sustainable wedding essentials, including favors and tableware," she added. "Prices are reasonable. But most importantly, high quality means that these eco-friendly products can last as family heirlooms."          

"Start off your life together in a way that honors the planet. This can be a truly meaningful way to begin to build a new family and traditions. We call it meaningfully green. Conventional weddings unnecessarily generate tremendous waste," says Colwell-Lipson who is co-author (along with her mom Lynn Colwell) of Celebrate Green! (www.CelebrateGreen.net)
