At I Do Foundation, we love helping couples plan their socially-conscious and eco-friendly weddings. We know you have a lot on your plate when planning your celebration. We want to make it easier to plan your wedding and remaining aware of the social and environmental effects of each choice. To help you, we’ve compiled two free guides for making conscious wedding decisions.
Conscious Planning Checklist
Our Conscious Planning Checklist is an indispensable resource for planning your entire wedding, start to finish. We take you through the process step-by-step, helping you to make the most out of every opportunity to help the world with your wedding.
Our Vendor Questions guide will help you use your buying power to support local or sustainable vendors. Use this guide to ask the right questions of your vendors, ensuring you make an educated and conscious decision with everyone you hire.
We hope you find these guides helpful while planning your special day. And don’t forget to visit I Do Foundation to set up a charity registry – it’s the best way to give back and share your love with the world!
When we came across the beautiful work of Flora Grubb, we couldn’t wait to share it with you. We especially love that these centerpieces can be given away as gifts or to your guests at the end of your wedding night, and they will live well beyond your wedding day.
Check out these beautiful succulent centerpieces that won’t be dead in a day:

Recycle, Reduce, Reuse – If it can’t be recycled, reduced, or reused . . . Rent! Ask if your vendors have a recycling policy. Plan ahead and find a shelter or retirement home for leftover food or flowers. Creatively use recycled materials throughout your ceremony and reception.
