Spending isn’t the only thing couples are trying to cut down for their wedding day. Waste is another major concern (via Insider). Normally, traditional details of wedding planning, including paper products like invitations, are being set aside for waste-free options. This means electronic wedding invitations, rented wedding dresses, fewer floral arrangements, and upcycled wedding details.
Rishi Patel of HMR Designs says his clients “are investing more in unique linens, china, glassware, and flatware” than the massive floral tablescapes of 2021 (via Martha Stewart). The best place to find these things, especially if it’s just for one night are thrift stores. Patel adds that, to him, this is a more “elegant way of hosting”.
