Little Cherry Loves: Eco Friendly Venues

Here at Little Cherry we are big fans of events and parties, but in particular weddings. We understand that weddings are one of life’s biggest parties and that is why it’s so important to get every little detail just right.

For many, so much of the wedding planning is spent on the finer details and things like the outfits, the catering, the cake and the decorations that the little things build up to become the big things. This can be an even bigger challenge for brides and grooms looking to throw an eco-friendly wedding where all of these things need to be thoroughly researched and sourced from green suppliers. That’s why we pride ourselves on being a one stop shop for eco-friendly wedding planning.

We stock a range of eco-friendly and ethically sourced biodegradable wedding decorations, disposable party plates and a range of other wedding essentials and party supplies; all ideal for any happy couple looking to go green on their big day.  

Aside from all of these details and finishing touches, there are key elements and big projects to consider when planning an eco-friendly wedding. The venue, for instance, is something you cannot overlook. In fact, you should pay close attention to your venue, especially if your special day is supposed to be the epitome of green.

You see, as wonderful as all your green party planning skills may be, if you want a truly eco-friendly wedding then you need to have it in an eco-friendly location. That’s not to say you have to get married barefoot on a beach or in the middle of a forest (unless of course you want to!), but it does mean that you need to consider a potential venue’s green credentials and whether or not it will complement or contradict the planet-friendly theme of your wedding.

Don’t think this means you are restricted in your venue choice though; far from it in fact. There are many venues around the UK that cater to eco-friendly events and provide a stunning backdrop and location for a big romantic day.

Read on for more on some of our favourite eco-friendly venues.
