The Green Wedding Recyclery

Brought To You By The Chicago Green Wedding Alliance

Sunday, April 28, 2013

11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

The Chicago Green Wedding Alliance, a group of wedding vendors dedicated to sustainability and building green events, is excited to host a Wedding Recyclery for brides and vendors to recycle and sell wedding goods at Loft on Lake!

The Green Wedding Recyclery is a collection of wedding items from recently-wed couples and wedding vendors. Slightly used and vintage wedding items—from Mason jars, to vases, to dresses, to jewelry and more—will be available for brides, grooms and vendors to peruse and buy. This is a great opportunity to save money, reuse stuff and save the world (or at least create a little less waste!)

Chicago Green Wedding Alliance members will also be on hand to give tips about building a green wedding & how to create the wedding of your dreams while maintaining a dedication to sustainability. There will be a concession stand, a DJ & more wedding fun!
