Format: Paperback
This book is a great combination of inspiration and pratical information on wedding planning.
While suggesting ways to plan a more eco-friendly event, it's impressively non-preachy or prescriptive. Several couples are profiled (full disclosure: including myself and my husband), and the variety of approaches shows the many alternatives that exist beyond the conventional offerings of the wedding industry.
As a subject for the book I was concerned about not being "organic enough" to be included, but now seeing the complete version I realize there's no set ideal. Kozin's focus is on how to joyfully incorporate some of your shared values into your wedding.
In sum: I wish we had it when my husband and I were planning our wedding!

Michelle Kozin guides you through a wealth of information we should all be more concerned about. Ideas and real eco-minded weddings are described. Brides and Grooms-to-be could use this soft-cover book as an easy take-a-long planning source. Professionals answer how-to questions. Earth friendly advice that's within our reach in this all to easy to throw-away culture. From ink use and its alternatives, to ideas for great food to enjoy, all keeping in mind the term, "it's better for us and our environment."

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to research organic weddings for my own wedding planning business. The book had some great ideas, but most of the websites she used as resources are no longer available. I only found a small number of them still working and the ones still on-line have very little information. I would not waste my money on this book as you can find this information on the web by just typing in organic weddings in your search engine.

This book is great because it gives suggestions for everyone, but reminds you to pick and choose what you can. You have to make a lot of decisions in planning your wedding and the saddest decision would be to ignore ecological choices all together because they seem too difficult. One thoughtful choice can go a long way and this book offers many to choose from.
