I hope you love this post as much as I loved to write it for you!

You might think that making an eco-friendly event is super hard, I used to think that too. That's why I wanted to share all the details, services and businesses that are doing wonders to help people create gorgeous and green events to create memories you can cherish foreve

1. Invitations

Our invitations were made by LiliWeds, an amazing Puerto Rican brand that create different kinds of paper branding products with exclusive and beautiful designs.

Ours were super simple, inspired by the eco-minimalist touch we love. They where made of seed paper, so people could plant the invitations instead of throwing them away, so it had an extra special green detail.

2. The Venue

Finding a place was kind of challenging because of the many restrictions they usually have, but the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, was definitely perfect. It have a nice and beautiful space and an incredible view of the Tampa Downtown. Also, the staff was amazing and they help us a lot to make our idea work by suggesting great vendors. (Thanks Amy!)

3. The Decor

We wanted a simple and minimalist wedding that produce the least amount waste possible, and the people from Outside The Box Rentals help us a lot with that.

We rented most of the things we used so we didn't need to use single use decorations and their service was amazing. They even set up everything perfectly.

Also, we decide to invest in a few details that now are part of our hose decor, and most of them where custom made by artisans just for us... like those G&G letters we love made by The Milkweed Market!

For the rest of the miscellaneous such as plates, cups and cutlery, we decide to look for brands online that offer eco-friendly supplies. We bought the cups and cutlery through Amazon, sugar cane plates and napkins from Ecoproducts and we made sure everything was compostable.

We also skipped the wedding registry and had a little glass box for cards and good wishes.

4. The Flowers

How can you have an eco-wedding without greenery?

The flowers and plants gave so much life to the wedding, and Johny, the owner of Tampa's Florist Inc., not only made beautiful arrangements for us, but also help us a lot with our goal by skipping the use of wires that could end in the trash at the end.
