Eco I Do - Green Wedding Expo

We will be hosting unique and engaging workshops to help share information about environmentally conscious weddings – the how and the why. Get a basic understanding of what a “green” wedding is and how to host one. We will also be hosting a workshop on native plant/locally-grown flower sourcing for wedding bouquets and décor and why this is important. A few other workshops will also be available for participants on food choices and DIY décor.
