The Mommies Reviews: 4 Wedding Trends that are Wasteful and Should be Skipped by Vanessa Events
Updated: May 9
Good morning, I would like to introduce you to Vanessa Ohayon of Vanessa Events & Hospitality, who advised on the four Wedding trends not to waste your time or money on.
When talking about a budget for the wedding, the sky’s the limit! With that said, there are tasteful ways to share your hard earned dollars with your friends and family, and then there are other ways that are wasteful where the environment is concerned!
These 4 trends can easily be skipped and won’t be missed.
1) Expensive print invitations, and especially the envelope. Once the envelope is opened, it is immediately discarded into the waste bin. Opt for digital invitations and save all the printing, postage and waste in the environment.
2) We love a custom designed monogram for the newlyweds, but refrain from printing it everywhere. Make its appearance special, and when gifting your guests with tchotchkes, make sure they are useful keepers that will be enjoyed beyond the wedding weekend and not something that will be stuffed in a bottom junk drawer.
If you are having a destination wedding, make sure your giveaways are airplane friendly. Avoid putting your picture or full wedding date on a tote bag or other give-aways.
