I'd Like: An Eco Wedding

It sounds country-organic but an environmentally friendly wedding-niqah might just be the greatest thing in a Muslim woman's life, after scooping up the generously rich man to make up for whatever's lacking after.

For a grand memorable eco friendly wedding there are certain requisites:

Reusing household crap to transform into luxury decor. Loo rolls for instance could make stunning jewelled bracelets and chandelier hangers. Finding recycled card to home print invitation cards is also feasible. I totally see myself doing that.

  • Using as many disposable and biodegradable items as possible. Paper plates and table 'linen', one-use cameras for guests instead of hiring that weird professional photographer, apparently that's 'cool'. If only the future in-laws were disposable too... or a try-before-you-buy deal...
  • Making the wedding food yourself. Freezing homebaked cakes, foods for frying OR just asking families attending to 'bring a dish' to serve 5 people. It's saving energy, food costs and providing a more continental buffet.
  • Everyone wears hemp, right? So let's put a 'wear your cheapest jimjams' and force the groom to wear an itchy recycled outfit (preferably bought from Islamic organisations). The wedding-niqah could be themed (she says in delight), say, 1960s hippy theme, thereby forcing all those attending to find old vintage stuff stashed in storage.
Yeah, that sounds kh'amazing. I've also seen a few desirable colour palettes for this eco-wedding (on Etsy again!)

Homemade favour boxes - I'll use my Iftar packs - 1950s drinking glasses
and paper garlands... Fab'lous!

Paper swans & designer (cheap) paper cupcakes, yay paper

A self-tailored dress, hand stitched brooch and OH! plantable favours!


It's a Muslim utopian wedding and I assume no rational tax payer would endorse my idea. I still think it could work with a bit'o'tape and glue...
