Minimalist weddings have become extremely popular in recent years as more couples opt for creating a more enjoyable and intimate feeling along with reducing their impact on the planet. So what exactly is a minimalist wedding? A small minimalist weddingis a celebration that is characterized by simplicity and minimalism, with a focus on intimacy, personalization, and sustainability. In contrast, a large extravagant wedding is a more traditional and lavish celebration, with a focus on grandeur and extravagance.
Weddings are meant to be one of the happiest days of your life because it heralds the start of a new chapter together. However, many brides find the build-up to their big day incredibly stressful. In today's modern world, thepressure put upon the happy couple can have an effect that taints what should be an exciting time! Tight budgets, unwelcome advice or expectations – even the happy couple can find themselves knocking heads and disagreeing over what is usually a minor detail.
We’ve all heard of the ‘trickle down’ effect. In the world of high fashion, it only takes a few seasons before the designs showcased on the catwalks find their way into our high street stores. Minus the Haute Couture (we’ll save that largely non-ethical topic for another day!), the world of food, restaurants and catering is much the same. With time and probably sooner rather than later, the environmental policies and sustainability initiatives adopted by the world’s leading restaurants and top chefs will soon become the benchmark for all forms of catering, small and large, across the globe.
We’ve compiled a list of the top 7 best wedding caterers that make sustainability a priority. We believe food must be green. No, not physically. But it must be sustainable to support our world’s rapidly growing population. 7.9 billion people populate Earth as of 2021, and with each person eating about three meals a day, and everyone hosting weddings and other events, we all need to incorporate some basic sustainability practices in our dining and entertaining.
A wedding is a day that will be remembered for the rest of your life. Many brides start imagining the dress they will wear, the look of their makeup and the smile of love on their husband’s face. Before we get ahead of ourselves we need to focus on one very important thing…what will the actual wedding day look like. Will it be outdoors or indoors? Big or small? Do you want privacy or do you prefer being surrounded by nature and big open spaces? Outdoor weddings are becoming more popular because they offer so many benefits.
The increased use of disposable plates over the last decade has changed the way we eat meals but unfortunately its also had a negative impact on our planet. By virtue of being heavy duty and cheap, most disposable plates contain hazardous chemicals and release dangerous pollutants that could lead to diseases, and even cancer.
