Congratulations to Kaytlyn and Justin, who won a dance lesson for two and a supperclub voucher from Urban Acorn Catering by participating in our Green Wedding Challenge!

They are choosing a local venue, second-hand wedding garments and sustainable rings. They will recycle and compost at the venue (Kortright Centre for Conservation) to divert waste. The venue also does catering with locally sourced ingredients. Kaytlyn said that her grandfather used to take her to the Kortright Centre often, so it was a location with meaning, beauty, and that already did so much of the eco-consious work that it just felt SO right.

They will carpool or use public transit, and choose co-party favours. They are sending out recycled paper invitations and have a wedding website with RSVP, hotel, and venue info. Most of the decor will be thrift store based, or wood from their tree at the cottage that came down in a windstorm, handmade or purchased from Canadian based etsy stores.

We hope their story will inspire you to take the Green Wedding Challenge!
