When Brian and I started planning our wedding, one of our first priorities was to ensure that we produced the least waste possible. When visiting vendors and wedding ceremony/reception sites, one of my last questions was, â€œIs this a sustainable work environment, and do you recycle?â€
It really is important to me, and that’s why for my traditional wedding ceremony, I am using bamboo plates which match the feel and theme of the ceremony.
The traditional ceremony is a big party with a bit of ceremony and tradition at the start. The plates have a tribal feel to them, and hey, the Yoruba tribe is one of the biggest tribes in Nigeria. I’m glad I’m making an effort to have a sustainable wedding. It may not always be the cheapest option, but at least I feel good.
