Recycled paper green wedding decorations

All images & designs in this post are copyright to Live & Lovely and can not be reproduced.

Introducing gorgeous recycled paper green wedding decorations by Live and Lovely Australia.  Live and Lovely offers a range of beautiful, quality products carefully selected to feature all natural ingredients, locally produced or featuring recycled or salvaged materials.

The decorations are made entirely out of salvaged materials (ie materials which would otherwise go to waste), primarily old magazines, newspapers, off cuts of pearl card, tulle scraps from wedding dress making, glass beads from old jewellery and even old sheet music. This means the decorations can be quite unique. They are completely handmade to order by local artists, making them sustainable from both an environmental and social point of view.

The range includes: Japanese style paper flower brooches that can also be used for table decorations, or made as hair clips, shoeclips, choker or wrist bands and is now also available as a bridal bouquet (together with salvaged glass beads!)
Paper cranes as individual table decorations or in a hanging string. Cranes are considered very auspicious in Japanese culture and paper cranes are often an integral part of wedding decoration. Our paper cranes are made from old magazines or old sheet music for 2 very different effects.

Card and tulle flowers on a string with glass beads. These romantic strings of decorations are a great alternative to balloons and look lovely blowing the breeze. For added effect, each flower can have special words or quotes or even your wedding vows added, and then hung in the breeze sending those messages to heaven, as Buddhist prayer flags are believed to do.

Green Christmas theme for a green wedding

A beautiful way to celebrate your wedding at Christmas time is to make it a green and red event - and of course "green" would mean eco friendly.

There are plenty of ideas for planning a green wedding on the Natural Weddings directory.

And why not decorate the green event with fair trade green Christmas decorations and felt garlands, use Christmas tags for the bombenierre and small green Christmas trees decorated with red hearts for the table centrepieces.
