Minimize the global footprint of your Jamaican destination wedding by making the conscious effort to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Follow the three R’s of eco-sustainability to create a beach wedding that is both easy on the eyes and on the planet. 

Ideas that are easy to incorporate in your destination wedding are:

  • Reduce. Reduce paper waste for your wedding by opting for electronic invitations and notifications. Say good-bye to wasteful, non-recyclable paper products, and hello to eco-friendly and creative email options. Your guests and Mother Nature will appreciate your personalized and waste-free efforts.
  • Reuse. Reuse decor items. Take full advantage of elegant decor options provided by your destination wedding venue. Expert wedding coordinators can personalize the theme and decor of your wedding to your satisfaction by using classic pieces already on hand. Save on checked-baggage fees and limit your impact on the planet? Win-win!
  • Recycle. For the ultimate eco-conscious bride, opt to wear a vintage wedding dress on your big day. Let the romantic notions and styles of yesteryear help captivate your partner and invited guests by wearing a re-claimed or upcycled wedding gown. 

Not into vintage? Select attire options that are in-line with your wedding vision and kind to our planet. Example: choose apparel for you and your wedding party that can be easily worn after your big day is over. 

Choose Seasonal Florals
