Review

"The Green Bride Guide: How to Create an Earth-Friendly Wedding on Any Budget is nothing short of a goldmine of information for any couple. Kate did a fantastic job writing it and deserves mammoth amounts of attention and thanks.
" - Victoria Everman blog

"If you're in the early stages of planning your green wedding, grab this book and read it from cover to cover - you'll be buzzing with eco-inspiration!

If you've got just a few months (or weeks, or days!) to go, get a copy anyway and you can dip in and out of the clearly labelled chapters to find the tips you need.
" - Ethical Weddings Blog

"In this book you'll find out how YOU can plan our 'special day' without sacrificing style or the environment!" - Made by Girl

"If you're a green person through and through and in the process of planning a wedding, I'd definitely recommend this book. But, I'd also say it's a helpful resource for the "green" environmentally friendly couple, new to the idea of leading a green lifestyle together or planning an eco-chic wedding. You can't go wrong with showing a little love for the earth!
" - WeddingFrantic.com

"Kate does a great job of explaining both the why and the how of green wedding planning, and she covers everything from the engagement and bridal shower to the wedding location, transportation, ceremony, reception, food, flowers, and even the honeymoon! I really can't think of a single thing she's missed here.
" - MissMalaProp.com

"Well organized and easy to read, The Green Bride Guide is full of suggestions for every wedding budget. Even though I'm radpidly heading toward my five year wedding anniversary, I still enjoyed reading this book and marveled at how creative Kate is. " - Allie's Answers

"Her book is an excellent resource for any couple who wants to plan their special day with fabulous style and without harming the environment.
" - Sweet Greens

"When it comes to creating a green event, it doesn't have to be all or nothing: trying your best is what counts, says Harrison. And The Green Bride Guide will help you do just that." - Intimate Weddings

"makes it clear that going green

does not have to mean going broke
makes it easy to know at a glance what will or will not be realistic.

Budget need never be sacrificed to inject a lot or a little green, nor

does style, creativity, comfort or fun.
simplify the interview process " - BookPage

I bought this book to get ideas for my sister's wedding and then I flew on a couple trips. People commented, oh congrats, to me as they saw me reading. Its understated cover apparently got some attention in airports!

This book has great ideas varying from VERY crunchy and (IMHO) too stupid for any real people to actually do, to ideas that are quite feasible and realistic for any bride, even one who doesn't even recycle much!! There are plenty of contacts for different vendors and ideas, all in one place. In the age of the internet, you could certainly find all these things, but this puts it in a compact area. The tone of the writing is effective and congenial.

I love this book so much. I've read other so-called green wedding guides, and they didn't have near the depth, detail, and super cool creative ideas this book has. In addition to a thorough examination of how to green the many parts of your wedding, the creative ideas are really inspiring. I am pretty hardcore when it comes to living eco-friendly, but I still found it had really helpful tips and neat ideas. I don't have the inclination to research every little detail down to where to get eco-friendly nail polish, but thankfully, this book does it for you! There are a lot of web sites mentioned. I reccomend keeping a little pad next to your book to make notes, because you'll want to write down certain things. Also, make sure to buy this (or give your existing copy) to a bride or groom early in the process, so she or he can benefit from the breadth of ideas before settling in on any one thing.

This is going to be one of the "new" bride guides. Finally, those of us who want to wed responsibly - without all the disgusting waste- have someone to turn to. Every bride should read this, and it will appeal especially to socially and environmentally responsible upper-level educated persons. It is refreshing, hip and modern.

For someone who's already a pretty avid environmentalist, a lot of what I'm finding in this book is stuff I would've already thought about. It would be a great book for someone who wasn't sure how to approach an 'earth-friendly' wedding.

This is a nice primer on green wedding ideas, nicely divided by general topic (the bride, the flowers, reception, etc.) Each chapter is then chock full of ideas and suggestions for making your wedding's footprint smaller. These suggestions range in terms of relatively inexpensive to relatively spendy are marked with $, $$, or $$$ to denote those estimates. Thus you can flip quickly to a section where you might want to improve, and quickly evaluate the options based on budget. There are nice little boxes that note things to particularly avoid or offer more specific discussion on why some choices should be avoided. Overall a wonderful book and proves that you don't need to be super-rich to have a down-to-earth green ceremony and reception.

This book has a lot of good tips about how to keep a wedding simple (and, at the same time, eco-friendly).
